BIRDWOOD - dedicated to Art Wood
Eel Pie Club, Twickenham.
A thrilling All-Star combination of three bands that played on Eel Pie Island in th 1960s - The Birds featuring vocalist, Ali Mackenzie (which in the 1960s also featured Ronnie Wood on guitar), guitarist, Derek Griffiths of The Artwoods (which featured Art Wood on vocals) and Keith Grant of The Downliners Sect on bass. Mark Freeman (Rollin' Stoned, Art Wood All-Stars, Downliners Sect) is on drums and Chris Parren (Strawbs, Rocky Horror Show Band) is on keyboards.
Tonight’s performance will be dedicated to the late Art Wood (elder brother of Rolling Stone Ronnie) whose assistance, enthusiasm and encouragement in the Eel Pie Club’s early days will never be forgotten. Raffle to benefit Prostate Cancer UK.
