The Wood Brothers

January 18, 2019 - The 9:30 Club - Washington, DC


On January 18, 2019 The Wood Brothers made it back to the 9:30 club as the headliner. Each time I see these three talented musicians I am blown away by their raw talent and passion for the music. They've created a style that is uniquely their own, combining rock & roll, bluegrass, R&B, and several other musical flavors to produce one of the most unique sounds out there. Their ability to tell a story wrapped in tap your feet, get up and dance music has become somewhat of a trademark for brothers Chris and Oliver Wood, and percussionist and keyboard player, Jano Rix. From the moment they hit the stage, the crowd was completely hooked. With a way of wordsmithing their stories and combined with their one-of-a-kind sound, The Wood Brothers have quickly become one of my favorite live acts.


Opening for The Wood Brothers was Priscilla Renea. A talented songwriter and vocalist who had, until recently, stayed behind the scenes as a writer. I wasn't sure what to expect, and was thoroughly and happily surprised. Priscila can sing. Really sing, and has a great sense of humor, which was on display in her lyrics and her attitude. I would be happy to see her perform again. Below are two photos of Priscilla Renea from that night.
