From their authentic acoustic sound to their warm, intimate staging, the Sherwood Brothers’ show is heavily influenced by the Unplugged movement of the late 80s and early 90s. The Sherwood Brothers’ energetic performances and stripped down interpretations are rock in their purest form.
Influenced by 50s rockabilly, classic country, and 70s & 80s rock, the Sherwood Brothers deliver everything from Johnny Cash to Metallica, the Beatles to Rush, Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones to Imagine Dragons and The Lumineers. The band’s unique set list features acoustic renditions of rock essentials from classic, southern, contemporary, and alternative genres.
On stage, founders Darryl (lead vocals), Dennis (acoustic guitars, vocals), and Neal (upright bass, mandolin) present a modern, professional style with a clean and classic look. Mood lighting, backlit panels, LED string lights, fire pots, candles, and throw rugs provide a warm, natural, unplugged ambience. A spectrum of acoustic instruments, including upright bass, banjo, mandolin, resonator and acoustic guitars, cajons, congas, and acoustic drums, round out the stage plot.
Experienced in their craft, the Sherwood Brothers have expertly honed their style over the years. Rock at the core with a huge sound, vocal precision, diverse instrumentation, unique arrangements and infectious presence… well, let’s just say it’s not your momma’s acoustic.
