Our Story

Waits & Co. was formed in 2011 out of a coffeehouse performance in Savannah, Georgia by singer-songwriter Jon Waits that good friend Markus Kuhlmann sat in on. From Jon's prolific songwriting and Markus' multi-instrumental abilities it was obvious that we had something unique on our hands. Performing for a year as a duo we decided that we wanted to fill out our sound by adding another acoustic instrument. The upright bass was a perfect fit. 

Fast forward several years, experiments with other instrumental performers, and a lineup change, John Pizzichemi came into the picture. Though an electric bassist by trade he quickly picked up the skills, and dedicated the required practice time to filling the role of our trusted 'keeper of rhythm' and official third member of Waits & Co. We have been fortunate to enlist a variety of other great musicians to make our sound larger for private events, festivals, and high-profile gigs. 

As a trio we've become a staple of the Savannah music circuit, performing weekly around the area, and have been featured in multiple articles from the press, including a full page interview with Jon Waits for his award in Connect Savannah's Best Of 2015 issue for Savannah's 'Best Singer-Songwriter'. We have stayed true to our roots and only carry a few 'cover' tunes in our arsenal, but still fill the standard of three to four hour gigs with our original material.

Our plans for 2017 include recording a full length album and performing more regionally, as well as keeping up our current local circuit performances.  Stay tuned for more details....

We recorded this debut EP at The Lowcountry Bungalow as a you would hear us during a live performance. Though the recording was professionally done there is no flashy production on this record...just three guys making their music together.
