Woodpecker, an electric pop ensemble spawned out of Manhattan''s lower east side music scene, combines marching band and orchestral elements with guitar, bass and drums to create a conceptual sound they call "Underground Parade Music."
The unique instrumental make-up of Woodpecker offers a refreshing change of pace to the jaded rock and roll ear and allows the band a wide range of expression not enjoyed by the more standard and ubiquitous guitar/bass/drums format of most rock bands. Woodpecker''s eclectic mix of pop song structures coupled with bass trombone, cello, hillbilly harmonies and backwards guitar create a raucous environment of a rock Salvation Army band with a bad acid hangover -- with occasional bell, whistle, trumpet or clang thrown in for good measure.
Woodpecker has been critically acclaimed as purveyors of a twisted underground Americana, their sound being described as "smartass and quirky", "very pretty and somewhat deranged", and "folk-rock clatter."
