The Woods are: Blair Latham (Tenor Sax, Bass Clarinet, Flute, Guitar), Joe Callwood (Guitar), Tom Callwood (Bass), and Rick Cranson (Drums)

“A burst of big healthy vibes. A high-intensity chill-out. It’s laid back and cool, but always solid in its groove. I love the range, from sultry blues to pagan ritual, with pretty much everything in between. It’s like latter-day troubadours have come to town. These are great earthy, singable tunes, and everyone of them with a unique twist. The writing and playing are constantly inspired. This is an awesome dose of positively-energized music.”

– John Psathas, Composer (Athens Olympic ceremonies)

Lovebite is an intimate venue with some seating with restricted viewing of the band.
Doors open at 6.30pm with the band starting at 7.30pm. It is recommended that you arrive early to secure a seat.
