Wyatt Foster is an Atlanta native. He started playing the drums at age 12 and soon switched to guitar. His first gig was at the local high school talent show in which the band took first place! Wyatt has played in many bands over the years. He was on the road touring the college circuite “back in the good ole days” with the band “Gangster”, which became the “House” band at several local Atlanta clubs. In the late eighties Wyatt’s band “Bentwood Rocker” (an all original band) started making “some noise” on the music scene with record companies and had some airplay on 96 Rock. At the Same time he started a family and a SCUBA Diving Company, SeaVentures Aquatic Center. He had to make a choice. He chose family and business. Fast forward to 2012, the business is doing great and the kids are all grown. He started playing again and formed “The Regulators” which is by the way composed of a couple of SCUBA Divers themselves (Wyatt & Joe). The name of the band was born as well. Wyatt loves to get a party started!
