It will be a night full of music at the Grand Stafford Theater in Downtown Bryan, as Wood & Wire and Buxton will headline a free First Friday concert on Friday, October 5.
Wood & Wire, a bluegrass band from Austin, first formed in 2011, and released their self-titled debut album two years later. Since that time, they have have released four more albums, including their most recent, “North of Despair,” in April, 2018. While the band is easily recognizable as a member of the bluegrass genre, they stand apart from others by how well their voices and energys blend together. The diverse background of the band members, including one who grew up playing classical piano, helps bring new sounds and ideas to the forefront.
Joining Wood & Wire for the concert is Houston’s own, Buxton. The band’s unique performances, style and sound all play to their strengths. Singer/guitarist Sergio Trevino’s voice is smooth and sensual, which matches the group’s lyrics well. The band uses sound elements similar to love songs of the 80s and 90s, bring nostalgic-like feelings to their original songs.
While the two bands are definitely worth seeing, their performances will be magnified thanks to the venue. The Grand Stafford Theater has a rustic charm to it, with three-stories of space to enjoy the nightlife. Bringing that classic, old-school charm will perfectly match the vibes of both groups, as each of the performances will showcase vintage feels.
Doors open for the evening at 7 p.m., with music beginning at 8. General admission to the event is free, but premium packages are available as well. More information and purchasing options can be accessed on the Grand Stafford Theater’s website, under Events and Tickets.
Be sure to get to Downtown Bryan early and enjoy the rest of the First Friday festivities!
