Band History

64West formed more than seven years ago when vocalist Aaron Weaver and guitarist Bill Yackey were members of the University of Kentucky a cappella group and Chorale. Having literally sung next to each other for more than six years in high school and in Kentucky All-State choirs, the two decided to add guitar to the mix and begin performing in the club circuit around Kentucky. “Bill & Aaron” caught on like wildfire on the college scene and operations were moved from Lexington, Ky. to Louisville in 2007, thus creating the name change to 64West.

After several years of relentless performing the duo made the much-needed expansion to a full band, keeping many of the songs and M.O. that made them successful in the past. Adding bassist Karsten Nelson, guitarist Will King and drummer Justin Shaw, all live music veterans, has allowed 64West the ability to play larger venues, festivals and weddings and gather a growing legion of fans.
