Get Loose!


The Loose Ends is a DC-area roots rock band that plays Rock, R&B, Rockabilly and Alt-Country. We love high-energy, good-time music that will make you want to dance and sing. Think Beatles, Stones, CCR, Tom Petty, Fleetwood Mac, Linda Ronstadt, Talking Heads, Stray Cats, and others; plus, originals in the same vein.



Gerry Waites - Vocals, Guitar
