It Was Fun | They Are Epic, So their music are | Finland’s Finest Rock Bands On Metalheads Forever To Talk on “The Road To Neon Waylay” Featuring The Amazing “Tornado Bearstone” From Gentle Savage, The Beautiful “Piritta Lumous” From Manzana & The Awesome “Mikko Heino” From Rylos

We’re not rich or super famous…
…but we do things with a big heart.

Summer 2022 rock bands Gentle Savage, Manzana and Rylos joined forces to play a bunch of shows together during the upcoming winter season 2022-2023.

These combo evenings go by the name ‘THE ROAD TO NEON WAYLAY’!

The idea was to tour together and to bring the music to the places where the ’local people’ are; at the small music clubs & bars in the dark corners of every village.  

And to be a part of something bigger, to offer something more than just a one band per night experience and to build something that’s called collaboration without selfishness.

With the first shows behind, it’s easy to say that the recipe is good.
