Wood Brothers at Stoughton Opera House - photo by Tony Mueller Phine Art Photography
The Wood Brothers made their return to the historic Stoughton Opera House on a chilly Thursday night. The performance fit the room perfectly. Although everybody remained seated, you could feel most of the crowd was itching to groove as much as they could in their wooden theater chair. Sean McConnell opened the night with his original pieces. He was a perfect start to the talent filled night.
Oliver, Chris, and Jano opened their set with a very sweet song off their newest album, the song of course was “Little Bit Sweet”. One that is sure to pull a few tears out of the crowd. Which was perfect for the next tune to follow up, “Cry Over Nothing”. The performance consisted of a blend of newer tunes such as “Satisfied and Alablaster,” along with ones the crowd could join in on like “River Takes the Town”, and “Post Cards from Hell”. It was easy to see that the crowd was on the edge of their seat the whole time. I know I was.
The Wood Brothers walked off stage after rocking their hit song “Happiness Jones” and were back out quickly after a sporadic synchronized clapping of the crowd. Which brought us to the famous closer for the night “Luckiest Man” with a fantastic jam section to go on top of it.
The whole night was a treat and I was extremely honored to be able to document it. The Wood Brothers are a must see band and you still have time to catch them on the last leg of their tour! They’ll be in a town near you soon so don’t forget the name “Wood”!
