Woody & Sunshine are touring through Colorado this summer, performing their Grateful Dead-influenced Americana, jamgrass and funkgrass at venues across the state.

The husband and wife duo will be pickin’ and grinnin’ from 9:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. Friday, Sept. 2 at Cruisers Bar, 715 Horizon Drive.

Woody & Sunshine DeLassio’s Facebook page describes the couple as “a string pickin’ duo growing from the hills of the Ozarks. Energetic and entertaining, this pair of pickin’ grinners is trying to revolutionize the classic grassy feel of acoustic hill music into their own self-formed style.”

Be it Grateful Dead, Jerry Garcia Band, or anything Jerry Garcia, it’s listed as Woody & Sunshine’s main influence, along with John Hartford, String Cheese Incident and Keller Williams.

Sunshine plays banjo, and Woody the guitar. They both add vocals and foot percussion to their original tunes to create “a special Arkansas twist.”

“Formed around a love for music, and each other, Woody & Sunshine came together early in 2011. Through collaboration, and constant jamming, this duo is ever-evolving and growing into their self-taught, free-form genre,” the duo’s Facebook bio says.

Call Cruisers at 314-2554 for show information.
