Wade has been parading the east coast for a solid decade bringing his unique show to many coastal waterfront venues as well as music festivals and college towns. Though hard to pinpoint a specific genre of music, he is best described as a “One-Man-Caribbean-Jam-Band”.

Barefoot Wade considers himself a nomad as he spends most of the year on tour, however he regards the tiny and blissful North Carolina island of Ocracoke as his home base.
