 About Some of the Performers at Woodystock Rock/Blues Festival

*All the way from Ventura come Crooked Eye Tommy, fronted by brothers/guitarists, Tommy and Paddy Marsh. The band  – who headline Saturday at Woodystock – is up for Best Blues Band and Album of the Year at the 2016 Ventura Music Awards.

*Hailing from Hesperia, The Lillies‘ sound is in the spectrum that lies between the raw/avant-garde tumble of sixtie’s indie greats The Velvet Underground and modern-day rock greats, U2. Yet, the quartet are also heavily rooted in the Blues.

*Returning to Woodystock this year is the ‘Reverend’ Smack Jonez. The singer-songwriter, New York-born and raised in Gavelston, Texas, was “sent here on a mission from God to bring you the love thru song and sound so that you, too can get down.” Watch Jonez electrify the Woodystock crowd with his energetic blend of blues, funk, rock and soul.

*One of the more eclectic bands to grace the Woodystock stage is Electric Parlor. The L.A.-based quartet takes pride in creating music that has an honest, raw, and live feel to it, relatable to music fans all over the world.  They are inspired by the past, and the lessons they have learned from years of listening to the forefathers of Rock ‘n’ Roll.

The tasty Down-Home Blues of guitarist Victor Crain graces the stage of Woodystock again this year.

*The guitar playing style of well-known High Desert-ite Victor Crain was once favorably compared to the great Jimi Hendrix. Crain, who resides in Llano, returns to Woodystock again this year to play some tasty Down-Home Blues.
