The Wood Brothers performance in the Big Room in January of 2015 is considered by many Big Room regulars as the “show of the year” in 2015! With Oliver Wood on guitar and vocals, Chris Wood on bass and vocal and Jano Rix on percussion and vocals, this trio presents a uniquely soulful approach to the roots/Americana genre.
