Greenwood All*Stars is a high energy rock band that plays tight tunes and smoking jams. This highly experienced band plays an extensive set list of originals and unique covers. After rocking together for over a decade, they posses a synergy that is rarely seen on the scene.
It takes years for a band to really jell, especially if the band seeks collective, spontaneous musical exploration. Each artist in Greenwood All*Stars is accomplished in their own right, but they really shine because of their years of experience playing together. This band reads the room. This band adapts, explodes, stops on a dime or heads off into improvised realms. Greenwood All*Stars exhibit the kind of musical depth that’s rare among bands in the ever changing music community.
This four piece band could be described as a cross between Ween and Wilco, NRBQ and CSNY (with a dash of Zappa). Their original music veers from graceful, pensive pieces to stomping, rollicking jams. An evening with the all*stars includes a wide variety of grooves and genres guaranteed to get your feet moving and put a smile on your face.
