Road To Garlic Fest

If you haven't already heard, we announced that we will be opening up as direct support for REBELUTION at Garlic Fest 2015!!!

Since finding out this news, it has lit a fire under our asses to push ourselves to be the best possible band we can be for that show, and every single show leading up to then & beyond. If you've seen Bushwood in the past, we thank you very much for your support, but we now feel like we have been reborn as a new band, and we invite you all out to our upcoming shows to witness the evolution yourselves. That being said, we'd love to officially welcome our newest member on Trumpet/Guitar/Vocals Mr. Alex Coombs to the Bushwood family

Come experience the new vibe TOMORROW NIGHT Friday 8/15 @ the Funky Buddha in Boca Raton (2621 North Federal Highway Boca Raton, FL). Doors @ 9, with Music from 10pm-12:30 (2 sets including new songs!) This will be our 1st time throwing our own party there (no opening act), so please come out if you are near the area, bring some friends, and support a hard working local band that loves playing original music

Next Saturday 8/23, we have the honor of playing directly after Tribal Seeds at theSummer Daze Music Festival held at Propaganda Lake Worth! We hit the stage atmidnight, so all you late night party people that love reggae music, don't miss that show!

Looking into September, we have Hollywood ArtsPark Amphitheater Saturday 9/13which is super family & pet friendly, so bring all the little ones, and any chairs or coolers, it will be a party - and then we return to Jupiter on Friday 9/19 to jam out atGuanabanas, the coolest looking bar in South Florida.

"Reggae has a philosophy, you know? It's not just entertainment. There's an idea behind it, a way of life behind the music, which is a positive way of life. A reminder to make each day a positive day. To wake up and truly live."

Hollywood Beach Theatre THIS FRIDAY 12/6! And Happy Holidaze from BUSHWOOD!

Hey! Hope all is well. Happy Holidaze from BUSHWOOD!

We have a great show coming up THIS FRIDAY 12/6 at the Hollywood Beach Theatre (directions below) from 7-9pm and YOU are invited! It’s free, family & pet friendly, and literally right on the beach boardwalk! FYI- They will soon be demolishing this beautiful stage as they build up Margaritaville, so come on out and enjoy some live music on Hollywood Beach while it’s still around!!

Directions to Hollywood Beach Theatre: Take any major road to Sheridan Street, go East and then turn South on Ocean Drive (A1A), go to Johnson Street and make a left turn. The stage is at the end of the street on the ocean side!

In other news, we just returned from an awesome weekend in Islamorada playing the Bay Jama Reggae Festival where we had guest guitarist Aaron Fass sitting in with us for the whole set. This was extremely special for us as Aaron is an original member of Bushwood who left the band years ago when he moved to Texas. He now resides in Seattle but was in town on vacation so we invited him on stage with us, and we thank him very much for elevating our Keys experience. Also shout out to our good friends Mixed Culture & Fourth Dimension (who played thru some crazy rain!). Playing with both of those bands was a pleasure and something we hope to continue to do in the future. Much love to all the other bands who played as well. This was our 3rd year being a part of the festival and good times were had, and we hope to return next year as this has now become a yearly tradition for us.

We have some other great shows this December as well - Be sure to check us out for our debut @Biergarten Boca on 12/13 (9:30-1:30), at JB’s On The Beach 12/15 (afternoon set 2-5pm), at theSeminole Casino Coconut Creek 12/16 (Sunset Grill 8-11pm), and then to close out the year we will be jamming at the Funky Buddha in Boca on Saturday 12/28 with special guest Christopher Learyplaying an acoustic set to open up the show! As always, you can check our show schedule anytime on our Facebook events or http://BushwoodBand.com/Shows 

PS – If you haven’t heard our latest album “Tidal Wave” yet, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR??!? Its got 10 hot tracks, links are below - its all over the interwebs and every site or service you listen to music on and you can get a hard copy at any of our live shows - get yourself this album, you won’t regret it! 

The Atlantic Current magazine writer Dana Krangel had this to say about “Tidal Wave”
"Let's be real, there is no shortage of reggae bands making the rounds in South Florida. So what makes Bushwood stand out from the rest? They are polished. Their live show is on point, and now their recordings match up. Tidal Wave, the bands second release, oozes breezy jams worthy of a hang out sesh. The title track showcases their recipe for two parts reggae, one part funk and when that sax comes in, you can't help but jam out. Other tracks like "Top of the Line" and "I Don't Want My MTV" give off a clear message that Bushwood likes to party but puts happiness first. With great vibes  and chilled out lyrics like 'We need to make a change, our culture needs to rearrange / Get it back to where it used to be, supporting positivity' it's obvious that Bushwood is a band with a message, and that message is to have a good time."

In conclusion, thank you for supporting us and helping us follow our dreams of making and playing music! We hope to continue seeing you guys out at our shows, and if you haven't seen us in a while, you have to come check out the new lineup - we got Joey Bitton on Drums, and Curt Windom on Saxophone, and we are jamming better than ever! Also we're currently looking to bring in a replacement keyboard player, so reach out to us if you are interested. Until next time!
