In the summer of 1992, The Wait formed to play rock and roll for the people. John McGah, Domenic Botolino, Shawn Norton, and Vin Dipiero started playing their original songs and ended up headlining at local clubs around Boston, Maine, Tennessee and beyond. They shared the stage with local acts Guster, Charlie Farren, Tom Hambridge, The Swinging Steaks and others from 1992-1998. With Arlington’s own John and Dom on guitars and vocals, Somerville’s Shawn on drums, the great Vin Dipiero, the talented Al Mancini, the legendary Bo Barringer and the one and only Bill Irish sharing bass duties through the years, The Wait attracted a loyal fan base and got a song on MTV’s Real World Boston. The Wait, now including Greg Scapicchio on bass and Kevin Faller on keys, was thrilled to play their hometown Regent Theater with friends Mighty Sam McClain, Jimmy Tingle, Mike Prior and others played worthy causes like Give US Your Poor and the Arlington Food Pantry.
