The shortest-lived of two San Francisco-based bands using the same name, the Waybacks attempted unsuccessfully to break through using a dynamic design of alternative pop and folk-rock. A five-piece group, the Waybacks focused around guitarist and songwriter Jeff Rollings and business lead vocalist Jenna Mammina. A indigenous of Bloomington, IN, Rollins was the kid of the actress and an attorney. Understanding how to play electric guitar, at age eight, he graduated from Cornell School before sharpening his instrumental abilities with some bar rings in LA, Nashville, NY, and Chicago. Rollings’ sibling, Matthew, is certainly a Nashville-based program keyboardist and manufacturer. Michigan-born Mammina may be the youthful sister of two performing brothers. Shifting to SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA, after briefly participating in Michigan Condition, she begun to incorporate her R&B and Motown-influenced repertoire with components of Western world Coastline pop and jazz. Being a program vocalist, Mammina provides documented and/or performed with En Vogue, Bobby McFerrin, as well as the Spinners. Rollings and Mammina started performing together soon after conference backstage at a Lyle Lovett present in Berkeley.
