“Elmwood Band was infectious from the very first note and played with a conviction and energy that is rarely seen in the jam scene. Their energy on stage reminds one of Fear if Dave Matthews replaced Lee Ving back in the day but decided to play Dave’s songs and arrangements. Odd yes, but it works! The thunder of a double bass drum rumbled throughout the theatre and onto the streets of Charlotte. Bass riffs flowed effortlessly while the sound of saxophone added color and melody. Unusual for jambands, Elmwood brings a front man who is not only comfortable in his role but also confident without being arrogant. He beckons the attention by his very presence. They are not a metal band. They are not a jam band. They are Elmwood Band and they filled our heads with catchy lyrics, complex songwriting, monstrous and complex drum parts.” –Jambands.com
