The Ultimate Honky-Tonk music of Dusty Woods has its roots in years of bar-band experience. Shaped by country, blues and rock 'n roll influences such as Lefty Frizell, Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis, Eddie Cochran, BB King and Muddy Waters, Dusty was always a strong supporter of genuine honky-tonk, from traditional country to blues. Some musicians make you want to dance - Dusty makes you GOTTA dance!
There's more to Dusty than just country! Dusty always felt that blues and country are closely related, despite the differences in feel (compare This Side Of Lonesome and Stormy Blues - different approaches, but the heart-cry is the same).
Dusty's early blues influences included BB King, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, and Sonny Terry. He relied on his Telecaster, "Gypsy", for some really tasty blues licks.

I am sad to announce that Dusty Woods passed away on September 8. He is sorely missed, but his music lives on. I'm dedicating this website to keeping Dusty's legacy alive.
Over the next few weeks I hope to have all of his tracks and albums available here for download via Dusty's BandCamp site.
