Since then, they have cut their teeth at staple venues around Toronto, such as The Horseshoe Tavern, The Opera House, The Mod Club, and won Ryerson’s 2018 Battle of the Bands, all while perfecting their music and live performance. Love Wagon’s music borrows from genres such as jazz, rock, blues, and funk, but the shows are about more than just the music; the band builds a connection with the audience, making Love Wagon show’s a spectacle unlike anything usually seen on local stages. After a Lee's Palace show in 2017, Joe Taylor of Blast Toronto wrote, "Their groove was deep and rich and powerful... Love Wagon is a band that should be on your radar."
In February 2018, Love Wagon released their first official single, “Get on the Love Wagon” - a 9-minute epic and a highlight of the band’s live show. On July 12, Love Wagon released their anticipated debut EP, 'What Wagon', a collection of their best songs two years in the making.
