Paul Silva and the band "Wood" will be playing The Porch Cafe!
Somewhere in the audio landscape, between the “fedora and vest” alt country set and the cerebral meanderings of the neo-hippy jam bands, you will find a sound that is at once familiar and joyously new. Wood is an acoustic ensemble which weaves together the influences of many musical styles.
Songwriters Steve Kindel, Paul Silva, And Dahlan Richenberg join Rob Strom (bass) and Barry Johnson (percussion) to create a wonderful mix of catchy melodies, thick harmonies, and profound, sometimes hilarious lyrics. It is good, honest music, sometimes a little hard to define, but music that stands comfortably in the Roots Rock/Americana cue.
Did you know Paul was also a Luthier? What an amazing talent!
