Enjoy Woody Pines’ viper jazz Friday

Grab your dancing shoes if you’re planning to come to Woody Pines show at Lee Street Theater & Performing Arts Center, 329 N. Lee St., on Friday.
“People can expect a real foot-stompin’ good time,” said Justin Dionne, the theater’s managing artistic director. “Woody’s music is very fun.”
Woody, the lead singer of the group, said people can definitely expect an upbeat show.
“Maybe we can rouse people to get up and dance in the front rows,” he said. “It’s generally an acoustic show, but we’ve got elements of rockabilly.”
Woody said the band plays a mix of blues, folk and viper jazz.
“Viper jazz is kind of an invention of our own,” he said. “We always have a hard time describing our music, so we kind of made up our own genre.”
The three-piece band also incorporates “upbeat boogie-woogie” into its music stylings.
The Nashville-based band is coming to Salisbury for the first time as the second act in Lee Street’s Winter Concert series.
“We’re excited to play in the new space,” Woody said.
Dionne said the band’s unique sound is something he expects Rowan County residents to enjoy.
“We are also going to leave room for a dance floor because I can totally foresee some dancers for this one,” he said.
Statesville native Abe Reid will open for Woody Pines. He is a former member of the premier rag-n-roll band The Blue Rags.
“I met The Blue Rags when I was traveling on the west coast,” Woody said. “They were a huge influence on me, so it’s kind of neat that we’ll get to play with them.
“It’s really going to be a great show.”

Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are $10. They can be purchased online at leestreet.org or at the door the night of the show.
