Wainwright is out on the road in support of his latest release Strange Weirdos, music from and inspired by the movie Knocked Up starring Seth Rogan and Katherine Heigl. Best known for his hit song “Dead Skunk in the Middle of the Road” he is much more than that. He has appeared on numerous TV shows including a regular stint on the TV show M.A.S.H. as Capt. Calvin Spaulding the singing surgeon and appearances in the movies Elizabethtown and Aviator to name a few.

Since 1970 Wainwright has managed to release over twenty albums of his own recordings and appeared on CD’s from Buffalo’s own Willie Nile and others.
