Saturday, August 2nd from 6:30-8:30 PM

Unlike most cover bands that specialize in a narrow play chart of music from one specific decade, part of Red Woody’s philosophy is that “there are great songs from every decade.  Why not play them?”  Diversity means that an audience can expect to hear songs from Skynard, Poison, The Stones, Tom Petty, Bon Jovi, Neon Trees, Lady Gaga…to name just a few…all in one set!

The other part of Red Woody’s philosophy is that every show should be a party.  This hard working, high energy group of guys will do everything they can to make sure their audience is having a great time.
