Rock-a-pop-a-funk-a-billy!

We decided that this is the best way to describe the kind of music that we do. It's a wide variety that includes elements of rock and pop music, classic country, and even some songs that are definitely quite funky and great to dance to! Rock-a-pop-a-funk-a-billy...kind of catchy, right?

First off, let's clear up what you are wondering about our name. How did we ever manage to come up with such an original and inspired name for our band? It was actually pretty easy. Our rehearsal space is located in a discrete, confidential location right in the heart of Berkeley, California's very popular Elmwood district. One evening after rehearsal, the discussion swung around to "what should we name our band?" and at the very moment, we were walking by the classic movie theatre there in the Elmwood district that was cleverly named "Elmwood". In a blinding flash of spontaneous inspiration, all four of us realized that we simply had to name the band "The Elmwoods", and thus the band was named. Feel better now that you know the details?

Originally, we got together to play music starting in 2008 just for fun and to selfishly keep it to ourselves. Since we had no real agenda other than to pick out songs we liked and see how those songs would sound if we did our version of them, our repertoire quickly became extremely varied and covered many different styles of music. Gradually, as we fine-tuned things along the way, we decided it would be fun to share our music with the world and started performing at private party gigs for our friends and then friends of friends etc.

For more details on what songs we routinely perform (not including requests...which we're happy to do!), please see the "Song List" page on our web site http://*******.***.

Anyway, we just wanted to put a few words together that would tell you about where we're coming from and what we do. Thanks for considering The Elmwoods!

They were really great! Alan was in constant communication with me prior to the party to make sure they did a great performance to match the type of party I was having! They added some songs for us, and made our party really fun! And the band sounds amazing!! The guys were really nice and fun. They showed up on time and set everything up, and were very friendly to my guests. They were very professional and really made our party very fun! I can tell they are experienced because they really sounded amazing! I'm so happy that they performed for my party!

Thank you so much for the great review, Erika! We had a great time playing music for your party. It was a lot of fun having you and your guests jump up to the mic and sing a couple of songs with us, that was great. Happy birthday!
