The Wendy Woo Band
Friday 9:30PM @ Magic Rat
Rocky Mountain Slap-tap
Wendy Woo is a singer/songwriter in Colorado. She is also known for her guitar work, especially using her acoustic guitar as a percussion instrument in a style that she has come to call “Slap Tap”. Woo is one of a small number of Colorado performers to win the Westword Music Awards five times (after that, a five-time winner becomes ineligible and is named a member of the Westword Hall of Fame).
Woo plays both acoustic and electric guitar. She performs both as a solo and with her band. She has recorded more than 100 original songs in a variety of genres: folk, jazz, blues, funk, rock, and pop.
During her career, she has been associated with three different Colorado music scenes: Boulder/Nederland, then Denver, and now Northern Colorado. Because Woo is so popular in Colorado, she has been called the "Queen of the Denver Scene," the "Denver DIY queen," the "queen of the local scene” and the “self proclaimed Mayor of Loveland”. She has toured nationally, playing many of the most famous acoustic rooms around the country including “The Bitter End” in New York City, “Eddie’s Attic” in Atlanta, GA, “The Bluebird Theatre” in Nashville, TN “The Utah Room” in San Francisco, “The Rainbow” in Portland, OR and many other nationally renowned venues including “Red Rocks” in Morrison, CO and “The Fox Theatre” in Boulder. Colorado has always been her home-base. "I know that I do get lumped into that hometown artist thing but ... well, the bottom line is that I love it here."
