Forecastle Preview: Elmwood Band

Nashville’s Elmood Band might well be the next Dave Matthews Band. Or maybe the next Virgina Coalition. Similarly equipped on stage with the sax and all, lyrically less quirky and perhaps a touch less sentimental than the Dave Matthews that I recall from those days when I was regularly listening to him, Elmwood comes off as authentic and genuine, and I can imagine that the jam band-heads of the festival and the average college student of the crowd could easily fall in love to one of their songs. I have to admit a bit of nostalgia when listening to songs like “Dreaming Little Things” which was always what I loved about DMB’s songs.  If you like the genre, as most of the WP-heavy audience will, I suspect you’ll really enjoy these guys.
