Wally Pleasant biography
Wally Pleasant is a comedic singer from Lansing, MI. He plays humorous songs based on folk music & 1950s-60s rock and roll influences.
Born in Detroit, Pleasant did not become a serious guitarist until college. While majoring in political science at Michigan State University, he performed at various Lansing-area open mic nights, gaining significant local popularity. A successful homemade cassette tape in the late 1980s led him to release a total of six CDs, the first five on his own record label Miranda Records. 2004's Music For Nerds & Perverts was released on Nashville, Tennessee-based Spat! Records. Pleasant has performed throughout the United States over the years, especially in areas where large numbers of MSU Spartan alumni have settled. For much of the 1990s, he was a full-time musician, but has scaled back his schedule in recent years due to personal and family concerns.
