The Early Years

Wayne Anderson began his life in music in 1953 at the age of 7. He appeared with his mom, dad and two uncles throughout the northeast. They performed on radio, in minstrel shows, clubs, concerts, and a number of other venues.
In 1970, Wayne left the family to pursue a solo career. Wayne, although raised on country music, loved the music of the late 50's and early 60's. His favorite artist of all time is "Nat King Cole". He worked the local club circuit with his band, "The Music City Express". In 1977 Wayne had a regional hit with an original song, "The Other Side of Me".

Joey Anderson began performing at the tender age of five. She grew up listening to such artists as Peggy Lee, Frank Sinatra, Connie Francis, and Patsy Cline. Joey's mom sang these classics to her little girl, and they were instilled in her heart. In her teenage years, she began performing on a regular basis for the 50,000 watt WPTR radio station, with the "Wolfman Jack of the northeast", Boom-Boom Brannigan. She performed at the station's record hops.


In 1973, while performing six nights a week at a ranch resort, Wayne spent one of his nights off at the club where he found Joey. They fell in love and began to perform together. They spent 13 weeks at "O'Lunnies" in New York City. They worked throughout the northeast. In 1977, they had their own weekly live radio show on WGNA radio.


In 1978 Wayne and Joey moved to Nashville, Tennessee and began appearing at local clubs in The Music City, such as "The Nashville Palace", "The Bullpen Lounge", "The Rodeway Inn" and a number of others. They also performed on "The Ralph Emery Show" on WSM television.

He has worked as bassist for "Freddy Hart", and toured with "The Oak Ridge Boys" and "Brenda Lee". He had tours all over the United States and overseas. Joey  also had time to tour with Wayne on personal dates for their own show.

From The Road To The Studio

Wayne left the road in the mid eighties. Concentrating now on the studio, Wayne began recording over 30 songs. In 1990 he recorded the album "Tell Me Again" co-produced by Dwayne Blackwell, writer of "Friends in Low Places" and "Mr. Blue".
Wayne and Joey were also involved in the production of "The Wayne Anderson Show", a television pilot that was completed that same year.

Homeward Bound

After 13 years in Nashville, they moved back home to New York in 1991. They began working again throughout the northeast with their own five piece band, "Area Code 518".

" The Classics"with Wayne and Joey

After over 40 years together,  as husband and wife, they have decided to work as a duo performing all of the classics of Pop Country, 50'sx and 60's Rock, Jazz and Blues.
Considering their early years it seemed only natural that they should perform the music of the classics. They have found that most people who truly enjoy music love all types of music, especially the classics.
If you enjoy the greatest music of all time, Frank Sinatra, Patsy Cline, Tony Bennett, Peggy Lee, Nat King Cole, Brenda Lee, Paul Anka, Connie Francis, Andy Williams, Etta James, Dean Martin, The Temptations, The Supremes and all the great song you fell in love with, we're sure you will enjoy "The Classics" with Wayne & Joey.

   After spending 6 months each year in New York, and the rest in Florida,
this dynamic duo are now making their home in Florida full time, performing their unique style along the Gulf Coast. They can be seen at numerous Resorts, Hotels, Amusement parks, Restaurants, and at a number of private event's.
