On Wednesday, December 9, 2009, The Wood Brothers (one of whom is Chris Wood, bassist in Medeski, Martin, and Wood) will be playing at Petit Campus in Montreal, QC.

Oliver and Chris Wood grew up in Boulder, Colorado. Sons of a Poet and a Microbiologist, they both took up music. Oliver moved to Atlanta and became a southerner. Chris moved to New York City and became a Yankee. Now, after years of musical and geographical separation they have reunited.

While in Atlanta, Oliver soaked up the roots of blues, the soul of the south, and found he had a talent for writing and singing songs. His band, King Johnson (named after Freddy King and Robert Johnson) toured mostly in the southern states. Meanwhile, Chris was living in Manhattan playing everything from free jazz to rock and roll. This is where he met his band mates to form Medeski Martin & Wood.

Now The Wood Brothers have begun a collaboration that combines their shared childhood influences with everything they've learned since leaving home. Their music has a rootsy feel that blends blues, folk, and rock music in a guitar/bass duo.

The brothers’ new album, "Loaded" produced by John Medeski, was released on Blue Note.

Aloha,

Brad

I'd be interested in tagging along and splitting expenses if the logistics can be worked out.

Hey Bradm, Myself and Nyree decided to do the Burlington VT show on the Thursday, but we are making a mini vacation out of it. Our baby-moon :) then going to Montreal for a few days. Hopefully you make it to one of the shows. Very pumped to be hitting this one. The Burlington show is in the small lounge which i have never seen a show in before. Good times. Peace

one cannot go to montreal, see a show and come back in the same night. Montreal needs to be cherished and nurtured and treated with respect.
