“We love all kinds of music, so that’s what kind we play.”

The Woodshedders are an Indie Roots Rock band boasting four all-original studio albums and performances at hundreds of festivals and shows. The band consists of Dwayne Brooke on guitar and vocals, Ryan Mayo on bass, Jesse Shultzaberger on drums, Jacob Smith on Saxophone and Keys, and Fiddlin’ Dave Van Deventer on Fiddle.

The Woodshedders bring lyricism and musicality to fun, danceable shows that swerve through Honky-Tonk, Gypsy, Appalachian, and Vintage Rock n’ Roll, often in the same song.

“As Americana shape-shifters, the Woodshedders deftly move between various styles of roots music. The five-piece string band first formed out of a weekly gypsy-jazz gig in Harpers Ferry, but on its third album, “Wildfire,” the group reveals a much broader range of influences.”
