Music & Events

Jack of the Wood has been fortunate to have had some really amazing musicians grace its stage over the years. From members of Flogging Molly & Dr. Dog, Shovels & Rope, Dick Dale, Southern Culture On The Skids, The Avett Brothers, The Blank Tapes, Steep Canyon Rangers, the Kruger Brothers of Switzerland and Mary Jane Lamond of Nova Scotia to Ralph Lewis and Mark Pruitt from our own back yard. We’ve hosted Old Crow Medicine Show, Warren Haynes Christmas Jam By Day, Brother, the Red Stick Ramblers, Colonel Bruce Hampton, Seven Nations, Old Blind Dogs and many more.

The entertainment offered up on the weekend is first rate and up close, getting started around 9:00 p.m. for a minimal cover charge. We also play host to three different jam sessions throughout the week. On Sundays starting around 3 p.m. is the Irish Session, On the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month, we continue our Singer Songwriter in the Round series, which is always free and goes from 7-9 p.m. Wednesdays at 5 p.m. is our Old Time Mountain Music jam and Thursday night is the highly popular Bluegrass jam, which starts around 7:00 p.m. Everyone is invited to bring their instrument, help make a little music, or just come down and listen in.

PATRICK COMAN’S  REDS & BLUES  was written in homage to the albums that lie at the heart of this foundation. Each song was written as a mythical “missing track” to an album that has contributed to the unique style he calls “playing the reds and blues”. These albums include everything from touchstones by Bob Dylan, The Band, and the Rolling Stones to work from Tulsa Sound pioneers Leon Russell, JJ Cale, and lesser known gems from Whiskeytown, Big Star, and rockabilly legend Jerry Lee Lewis.
