Later that same year, Bob Dylan hand picked the band to be the openers for his 28-date minor league baseball stadium summer tour, with Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp.
While it was their mastery of vintage acoustic performances that drew the attention of many in the folk music scene, by late 2008 The Wiyos had begun work on Broken Land Bell, a contemporary studio production with half the band plugged in and guest beat boxer Adam Matta laying rock and trip-hop beats under syncopated swing and New Orleans based rhythms.
Twist is undoubtedly The Wiyos' strongest and boldest work to date.
Many of these performances were well documented and are still the bands most viewed videos on You Tube.
The record was recorded entirely in 808a, the bands Brooklyn studio, crash pad, and apartment of Joebass and composer Sxip Shirey.
By July of 2009, with Broken Land Bell buzzing on the Americana charts, The Wiyos hit the road with The Bob Dylan show, laying down opening set after set of grungy harp, steel guitar, rockabilly bass, human beat box and three-part harmonies.
Their relentless touring in the US and Europe, and numerous critically acclaimed albums and EPs landed them a full 28-day summer tour as openers of the 2009 Bob Dylan Show.
The Wiyos were also featured in the BBC television documentary, “Folk America – Hollerers, Stompers and Old-Time Ramblers”.
