This groove jam funk band, based in and around Linz in Upper Austria, is run by drummer Josef Hinterhölzl (aka Joe Backwood). Over the last year or so I had the great pleasure of working and playing with this fun and high energy five piece – what’s more is that Joe has picked all the tunes from my original repertoire and has also tasked me with MDing the band – there is really nothing not to love about this gig!
As we are young band we are looking to add to our existing gig circuit – one of the steps we have taken towards this is to release our first EP called ‘Brother Joe’s Garage’ featuring five original songs. Have a listen/download on any of the provided links below – choose your favorite service, heads up though, only on Bandcamp you can NAME YOUR PRICE – give us whatever you think the music is worth to you or even better, invite us to your next festival – no matter how big or small!
Backwood Five are:
A big thank you to Tom Fitzsimmons who helped us out in the studio and last but not least Karl Vanden Bossche who overdubbed percussion @his on ‘Samurei Phunk’ and ‘Scarlett Town’ – always a pleasure to work with such master musician (“More cowbell, anyone?”).
