    Wednesday, July 29, 2009 Next Step Recovery Benefit w/Hollywood Red & more! Woody Wood & Hollywood Red http://www.woodywoodmusic.com http://www.myspace.com/woodywood33 Aaron “Woody” Wood may be a legend. The skinny white boy from the mountains of Western North Carolina carries around more soul in his restless bones and battered guitar than most of us ever dream of. With a background as diverse as his music, Woody converges elements from all walks of life to present music that contains a sense of familiarity like no other. His songs are stories that are delivered as if he was giving his first account and confession of the subject matter. When he sings he SPEAKS to you,not at you. “I think the most important thing is that you have to be completely honest in your music,” Wood says.And he bears it evidently and without shame. One look at the long list of artists he has shared the stage with exemplifies his diversity, not to mention respect from his musical peers. From Jimmy Martin to Leon Russel, R.L. Burnside to Warren Haynes,country music superstar Sara Evans,or Carlos Santana,Woody has played and learned from some of those who have helped shape music into what it is today. Growing up, Woody was steeped in the knowledge, legacy, and traditions of Bluegrass music. His father, A.L. Wood,and his band, The Smokey Ridge Boys, toured the traditional bluegrass circuit extensively alongside legends like Bill Monroe, The Stanley Brothers and The Seldom Scene. Tagging along with his father to various festivals, Woody experienced first hand the power of music and the etiquette that goes into it. As he got older his appreciation of music grew to much wider horizons. Soul, R&B, blues, folk, rock, jazz and world music now started to blend with the sounds of his childhood. As a professional musician, Woody was a pivotal member of the Blue Rags, with whom he had success with National media coverage (MTV) and international tours. Woody was also recorded and performed with a slew of New Orleans and WNC’s finest musicians in what was a blending of musical styles, combining New Orleans Jazz and Bluegrass. The Blue Brass Sessions featured members of Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Rebirth Brass Band, Larry Keel,Troy”Trombone Shorty” Andrews, and many others. Strange Brew http://myspace.com/strangebrewgrooves We are Strange Brew, out of Boston, MA. We all formed during our first year at Berklee College of Music. We all soon became good friends once we discovered each of our musical tastes. We began jamming, and we came to a decision that we should take this jam project and put it to a band. We are now in Asheville, NC for the creative process of writing and recording our first EP. We come from a heavy influence of old school funk and rock. We like to put ourselves in the genre of Rock/Funk/Blues. We have formulated a sound similar to bands like Gov't Mule, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Derek Trucks Band, Phish, The Meters, and Soulive. Next Step Recovery http://www.nextsteprecovery.com Next Step Recovery is a nonprofit transitional living program for adults who are recovering from substance abuse. They offer a safe, structured and supportive environment that builds on traditional treatment and 12-step programs. Come out early for dinner -- $5 a plate!
