Aaron Wood Playing Steel City This Wednesday

This Wednesday, blues rock artist Aaron Wood comes to town, headlining a concert at Steel City. From his press release:
Aaron Wood Rocks Out with The Ends

Blues infused "rock n' roll troubadour, (Dan Reed, WXPN-FM)” Aaron Wood announces a collaborative tour with funk-rock band, The Ends. Wood typically tours as a solo or duo, however teaming up with The Ends allows fans to see Wood’s music performed with a full band and greater depth. They will also play original songs by The Ends.

"His voice is not only incredibly solid, forceful and wise, but contains a powerful amount of soul (usually only heard in funk, gospel, R&B and of course, soul) that seems to come effortlessly," comments Bold Life Magazine about Wood.

Wood, also known by fans as “Woody”, is an Asheville, NC resident and native of the Piedmont of North Carolina. Aaron Wood grew up steeped in the traditions of blues and folk music of North Carolina. Wood performs at music festivals locally and across the country including Jazzfest, Bonnaroo and Charlotte BBQ and Blues. He recorded his latest record, a self-titled release with the help of a successful Kickstarter campaign, raising just under $10,000 from his fans. Throughout his career, Wood shared the stage with a diverse list of musicians, many of whom helped shape the music of today, such as Jimmy Martin, Leon Russel, R.L. Burnside, Warren Haynes and Carlos Santana. As the winner of CMT’s 2006 television show, Big Break, he performed with Sara Evans. He is also a former member of the Blue Rags, a band signed to Sub Pop Records.

Blurt Magazine refers to Wood as, “a strong contender for the busiest and most prolific musician in North Carolina.”

The Ends are an original rock band who combine multiple genres of music to create a unique experience at every show. The Ends' vast catalog of originals and covers is a wide variety of musical influences, from jazz to punk and country to funk. Their music is best described as groovy, American rock with an incredibly unique twist. Members of The Ends currently reside in Burlington, NC.

The concert starts at 7:30pm and tickets can be purchased at the door for $5.

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm. For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page , to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community. As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website
