“The title cut was our favorite.  It could have easily been named ‘Monday Night on the corner of Rampart and Canal,’ with its funked-up percussion and organ, the scratchy guitars and Famous Flames-era horn section driving this second-line romp and  ‘cookin’ us all up a little rice and beans.’

For several years, the CD Woodbury Band has been called ‘the Northwest’s best-kept secret.’  Now, the word’s out everywhere with the release of ‘Monday Night!,’ with its clever songcrafting, fascinating instrumentation, and overwhelming power to make you wanna get up and boogie!!!” – Sheryl and Don Crow

“A rocking album, full of burning guitar, tasteful keyboards, soulful sax, and great tunes, Monday Night! is a solid debut for the CD Woodbury Band.  Full of rocking swing-revival, classic Texas shuffles, seasoned with hints of R&B and jazz, the album features a band that can downright play…

…The album is well worth a listen.  Not only is the playing and production quite good, but the style is unique.  Of course, the band draws heavily on more traditional blues influences, but their sound is not old-fashioned.  Quite the contrary, they are a new and unique addition to the blues tradition.

Combined with his exceptional band of songwriters, singers and headcutting instrumentalists, the result is booty-shaking contemporary blues with wit and extraordinary substance”
