Here's local Beatlemaniac and all around great radio host and friend
"This past Friday I went to the Historic Everett Theater to see the band 'WingsNThings' perform the entire Wings Kingdome performance that happened 40 years ago to the day.
WingsNThings: The Music of Paul McCartney is not just a "Wings Cover Band". The band performs McCartney's biggest hits from his Beatles days, Wings days, and also his solo years. There are so many songs that every show is a little different than the last.

This video is us looking back (during Covid) at a show that WingsNThings: The Music of Paul McCartney staged in 2016 to recreate the Seattle Kingdome show that occurred in 1976. Not all of our shows are staged like this, but this was something special for us. You can see us discussing it here for 20 minutes and then the rest of the video has highlights from each song from the show.
In 2016, WingsNThings: The Music of Paul McCartney performed the ENTIRE 1976 Wings Kingdome Show at the Historic Everett Theater. The brainchild of Marc Montagnino, this celebration tried to recapture (40 years - to the night and minute) the fun of that show, but on a much smaller scale. Obviously, we don't THINK we are Wings, but to reproduce this show was a labor of love for the entire band. Backed by Krause Productions, we were able to really put on a very cool show! To the best of our knowledge, we are the only act out there to attempt this.
We brought in a horn section, lasers, smoke bombs, fog, sets, lights, and original film of Wings from that legendary show. We also recreated a lot of the same video backdrops used at the Seattle '76 show and even recreated a similar program to the ones that were sold way back then. Then we ran down the complete set from "Venus and Mars/Rockshow/Jet" to "Soily". Wings Over America fans know what we're talking about!
We DID reach out to former Wings Denny Laine and Denny Seiwell, but we couldn't make it work out unfortunately. Tons of rehearsals later, we had a reasonable facsimile of the original show and we took it to the Historic Everett Theater. It was obviously a special show for the band as we're still talking about it a few years later. Hope you were there!
Here is a clip from the show!
MARC MONTAGNINO: Drums, Vocals
MARC has been involved in the Seattle music scene for over 20 years, contributing his drumming and vocal talents towards a multitude of local bands and music projects, including Beyond the Fringe, Max Axle and Tony La Stella's Wise Guys. His ability to play a wide variety of drumming styles as well as his eclectic combination of powerful precision, vocal abilities and stage presence has earned MARC a successful place in the local music industry as one of Puget Sound's most versatile and talented drummers. MARC brings his own unique talents and his excitement for Paul McCartney's music to WingsNThings. MARC and BRYAN had always wanted to play together but had a difficult time getting their schedules to coincide. Together, they conceived the WingsNThings project and proceeded to recruit each of the other members to make sure that it was the best live band it could be.
BRYAN WOOLLEY: Lead Vocals, Electric & Acoustic Guitars, Piano, Mandolin
BRYAN has been a fixture in Seattle bands for most of his life and has for the past 17 years been the lead singer and front man of the popular Casino/Corporate/Club/Festival band The Machine. Always a Beatle/McCartney nut, he jumped at the chance to play in WingsNThings when Marc Montagnino approached him about the concept. Along with Co-lead vocalist ARNY BAILEY, BRYAN fronts WingsNThings: The Music of Paul McCartney and also Borrowed Time: The Music of STYX. He is also rumored to have some involvement with Third Stage: A Tribute to Boston, but these rumors can neither be confirmed nor denied. Between he and ARNY, they keep things fun for the band and audience.
ARNY BAILEY: Lead Vocals, Bass, Ukulele
ARNY cut his vocal chops on everything from early country to Led Zeppelin. His seemingly limitless vocal range and multi-instrumentalist abilities have allowed him to play when and where he'd like. While continuing to front About Face and The Rockafellers (and sitting in with whoever needs a hired gun), ARNY used his vocal and guitar skills with The Grand Delusion (Styx Tribute) and Highway Run (Journey Tribute) a few years ago. After those two bands folded, ARNY created another Styx project (Borrowed Time: The Music of Styx), and is currently that band’s guitarist and co-lead vocalist with BRYAN WOOLLEY.
RON SMEVIK: Lead Guitar, Vocals
RON performed for 10 years in the duo known as Sam’n Ella, before forming the gourmet classic rock band The Rockafellers in 2003. The Rockafellers specialized in performing “The Wall” by Pink Floyd and performed at many outdoor concerts in the Seattle area. A “Wings” fan for life, RON revels in bringing the guitar stylings of Jimmy McCulloch to a new generation of fans.
DAVID SHORE: Keyboards,Percussion, Vocals
Welcome our newest member! DAVID is a multi-keyboardist, sequencing artist, and vocalist. Born & raised in Seattle, DAVID's expertise includes national and international entertainment as well as many local bands in the Pacific Northwest.

DAVID's ability to reproduce the keyboard parts and orchestration found in McCartney's vast song catalog is nothing short of amazing.
