AyerWaves was founded by Joshua Ayers in 2012 as "Josh's Underground". It started as a radio show on WHAY 98.3FM in Whitley City, Kentucky. The two hour time slot was spent showcasing independent musicians from around the world.
In 2015 the first AyerWaves live started as "Josh's Underground Acoustic Summer Concert Series". The event was held at Josh's yard in Oneida, Tennessee. The series consisted of seven concerts on 3 acres of land throughout the summer showcasing touring independent musicians and pairing them with a local performer. By the seventh concert the events were getting to large, so in 2015 Josh met with the owners of the Possum-Trot Western Themed Mountain Resort about bringing his event to their location. The two sides worked out a deal, and the AyerWaves Music Festival at Possum-Trot was born. The 2016 event known as the 1st annual AyerWaves was held on 46 acres with one stage outside in the town of Possum-Trot. The event had 20 performances over the two days. In 2017 the event rapidly expanded to 191 acres with four stages and over 50 performances over four days.
AyerWaves Entertainment now helps organize and create for private, corporate, and community events. Joshua spends most of his time booking talent in Tennessee and Kentucky, and keeps a focus on sharing independent artist traveling the country. You can still hear the radio show every Monday night at 7pm EST on WHAY 98.3FM.
