Buffalo, NY — The Wood Brothers are an Americana and blues band, and consist of real brothers Chris (Upright Bass) and Oliver Wood (Acoustic and electric guitars), as well as the recent addition of the multi-instrumentalist Jano Rix. The band returns to The Queen City for a highly anticipated concert at The Tralf on Thursday April 9 with special guest Willie Watson.
After pursuing separate musical careers for some 15 years, the brothers performed together at a show in North Carolina: Oliver sat in with MM&W following King Johnson’s opening set. “I realized we should be playing music together,” Chris recalled. Soon after, the pair recorded a batch of Oliver’s songs, channeling the shared musical heroes of their youth while seizing on their own individual strengths — Oliver’s songwriting and Chris’s forward-thinking musicianship. A demo landed them a recording contract with Blue Note, who released Ways Not To Lose in 2006. Follow-up Loaded came in 2008; after covers EP Up Above My Head the next year, the band moved to Nashville’s Southern Ground Artists for Smoke Ring Halo, 2012’s Live, Volume One: Sky High and Live, Volume Two: Nail and Tooth. In October 2013 the Wood Brothers fifth and latest studio release, The Muse was released with Buddy Miller serving as record producer.
