Nick Kody and the Creek Road Band to perform in Wellsboro
WELLSBORO – At 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nick Kody and the Creek Road band will perform orginal rock and roll, blues and country songs, as well as covers, at the Gallery in the Warehouse Theatre, 3 Central Ave.
Kody plays guitar and mandolin and is lead vocalist; Aaron Peters is on drums; Aimee Peters on hand percussion and Adam Schmidt on keyboard. They are also vocalists.
At Wellsboro, the band will perform several cover tunes, such as “The Weight” and “Up On Cripple Creek” by the Band and “Melissa” by the Allman Brothers.
They will also perform selections from Kody’s two albums, “Rainy Day Blues” and his recent release, “Sonic Farm Sessions.”
Nelson Starr who is in the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame, co-produced the Sonic Farm Sessions with Kody at Sonic Farm studio in Colden, New York.
Starr describes him as having an “unmistakable affinity for blues and real-deal classic rock” that would lead the listener to believe Kody is three times his age.
He said Kody brings a “fresh perspective and renewed vitality to the tried and true fueled by his equally soulful vocals and smooth, late-sixties guitar delivery.”
“My mom’s side of the family all played music in high school. We think the music gene goes back to my great-great-grandfather who was a violinmaker in Huntington Mills,” Kody said.
Two of the violins are now in the Smithsonian. One is made of matchsticks.
