Hey world!!! BUSHWOOD here! We just want to take a moment out of this hectic crazy lifestyle to genuinely thank each and every one of our fans - whether you came out to one show or come out to them all - whether you became a "fan" on facebook, myspace, or reverbnation or if you "followed" us on twitter - or you just heard about us, and helped spread the (BUSH)word - from the bottom of our hearts - we want to say: thank you!! thank you!! thank you!!
These days, its an ever-evolving realm being in a local band. There are a lot of ways to get your band name out there, and a lot of ways to publisize shows - but without our core fanbase and that essential "word-of-mouth" that sprouts from them, we would be nothing. We are three dudes who are ecstatic about our brand of reggae/rock music, and we want to share that with the world, one person & one set of ears at a time. We truly appreciate anyone who gives us a chance, and if you like what you hear, come back for more!!!
BUSHWOOD has been through a sort of transitional period these last couple months, with the move down south from Orlando to Ft. Lauderdale, and with bassist Adam Moskowitz joining to complete the trifecta! There is something amazing and beautiful about bands that strip down to the bare essentials of the trio formation. Take a moment and look at this list of bands/artists below and realize that they all have one thing in common; they existed exclusively with 3 musicians, 3 instruments, drums, guitar, and bass.
The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Cream, The Police, Sublime, Rush, Stevie Ray Vaughn & Double Trouble, ZZ Top, Nirvana, and even punk trios like Green Day, Alkaline Trio & Blink 182. Also noteworthy are "power trios" which included only 3 musicians as well as a vocalist, like Led Zeppelin, The Who, & Queen.
"Trios usually emphasize instrumental performance and overall impact." - Rolling Stone
Until next time, stay safe out there, and be kind to each other!!
Peace, Love, & Reggae :)
