Blackberry Wood feature boundless energy and quirky humour

E-mail Print PDF

I expected more people coming out to hear gypsy rock/ folk quartet Blackberry Wood at the Slice, Nov. 10. As more trickled in by the end of the Blackberry Wood rock it jazz cabaret style. Photo by Richard Ameryband’s third set, the band was having the time of their lives and the audience was falling suit.

They had boundless energy with a beaming saxophone player in a sexy red dress blasting jazz and grinning wildly.

 Frontman Kris Wood, sporting a crazy hat, played energetic guitar and leaped around the stage. Their new drummer provided an unstoppable beat and their new percussionist added an array of percussion including shakers and a whistle, plus the odd cymbal crash.

 They had a healthy doses of humour, illustrated by playing an upbeat version of the cantina song from Star Wars, which they followed up with by adding the Muppet Show theme.

They played songs about Russian bear and a man who fought the Russian bears, not to mention an array of circus music, energetic eclectic, originals  powered by that sexy, sulty  saxophone, plus other weird and wonderful stuff.
