LAST LICKS is CONNECTICUT’S BAND OF THE YEAR 2019. Given that distinction from Governor, Ned Lamont.
LAST LICKS is a top shelf classic rock band based in central Connecticut. The band differentiates themselves from all other bands in the genre by pulling out the songs that are uncommonly played, yet very well known and loved. The band is talented, charismatic, and delivers a show that always leaves the audience wanting more.
LAST LICKS began as a 4 piece band when original bassist Steve Shore, formerly of Cryer/Oreo and assorted other well known CT bands, made an introduction to singer Bill Wilson, after running into Bill’s band in a CT night club. Guitarist Gray Fowler and drummer Joe Santucci all got together for a “jam” in January 2006. “From the very beginning of that afternoon, everyone just kind of knew something really special was happening”, says singer Bill Wilson.
