Mean Wendy Band

The Mean Wendy Band is a folk-rock-do-wap-a-cappella-ragtime-sing-a-long comedy group fronted by song-writer and singer, Wendy Lenhart. She is accompanied, as always, by her trusty Man Band of Ryan T. Barlow, Brian Kelly, Dan Kristie and Zachary Wiseley. Together they write & perform original music.

The Mean Wendy Band is a Philadelphia-based comedy band with roots in both music performance and sketch comedy. Lead vocalist and Philadelphia improviser, Wendy Lenhart started writing original songs in 2014 and soon collected a “Man Band” of fellow comedians and musicians to join in the fun. Her handsome and talented Man Band features Ryan T. Barlow on bass guitar, Brian Kelly on conga drum, Dan Kristie on lead guitar and Zachary Wiseley on additional vocals, keyboard, acoustic guitar and whatever else he is asked to play. We're just that kind of bunch.


Mean Wendy Band songs grow collaboratively between Wendy and the Man Band and showcase a variety of musical genres from the crooner years of the 1950s, some smooth 1970s-inspired singer-songwriter tunes to a somewhat misdirected childrens’ song. Mean Wendy Band has appeared at musical and comedy venues throughout the Greater Philadelphia area and most recently performed at the People’s Improv Theater in New York City for Sketchfest 2016. The Mean Wendy Band would like you to know that if they don’t have anything nice to say, they don’t say anything at all….except when they’re singing. Despite the intentions of their name, they are really quite nice people.
