Ring in 2012 with Buck Love & the Humperheads and the Bob Woods Trio in the Osborn/Woods Hall at the Miners Foundry on December 31, 2011. With four lead singers, three guitars, bass, lots of percussion and drums you’d be wondering if these guys could possibly keep the music on the pavement, well they do, as long as you don’t need the road to be straight. This music is a melting pot of R&B, Soul, Funk, Southern Rock and Reggae, Folk, Jazz, World Beat and jam band style party music, which after more than 20 years together has brought six entirely different musical universes into alignment with each other like some weird and crazy musical solar system. Dancing to this music is like taking a big hit of fresh air…and while their kinetic and intoxicating energy with old classic songs is stunning, their original songs and lengthy improvisational jams are even better.
The band hails from Nevada City CA and made their first appearance on July 4, 1986 and have been playing together ever since at clubs, festivals, benefits & parties all around Northern CA. The group is made up of five professional musicians each of whom performs all around the country with a variety of acts as sidemen or fronting their own shows. Band members include Mikail Graham on guitar & vocals, Paul Kamm on guitar & vocals, Tom MacDonald on guitar, percussion & vocals, Bill Smart on electric bass & vocals and Mark Yedinak on drums & electronic percussion.
Bob Woods started playing music in 1971 with the Sacramento Western Swing band Tokpela. Since then he has shared the stage with Tiny Moore, Bill Kirchen, Albert Lee, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, Pete Grant, Gene Parsons, Billy Joe Shaver, and others. Woods has released six, original albums: Hillbilly Cadillac (vinyl), The Night We Stole the Last Steam Engine, Don’t Forget the Trains, Almost Live, Railroad Money, and most recently in 2011, “THIS TOWN”, now available on iTunes and CD Baby. He is currently writing and recording his seventh album, Playin’ the Blues.
