Exploring Entertainment in Florida's 850 & Beyond
They were recently named the “Discovery of the Year” by John Platt at WFUV New York City, and were profiled Acoustic Guitar Magazine this past September. Their seventh and most recent release, Early Best, is a carefully curated collection of songs from the band’s early years, which saw them springboard from Boston street performers to tour mates with Jason Mraz. They currently reside in their hometown of Tucson, AZ, where they have won more than a dozen Tucson Music Awards, including “Best Folk Band” and “Best Rock Band” (you can decide for yourself which is most accurate).
Ryanhood is on tour promoting their latest album, Early Best, and will perform at The REP Theatre, on 11/7/19 starting at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $30, $24 for REP members. The REP Theatre is located at 216 Quincy Cir, Santa Rosa Beach, FL 32459.
WHAT THEY’RE SAYING ABOUT RYANHOOD
“The duo’s rock roots are evident in their high-energy performances and especially in the guitar work of Green… [but] their music taps into contemporary folk and pop too, showcasing tight vocal harmonies as much as instrumental interplay.”
– Acoustic Guitar Magazine
“True showmanship… they consistently deliver an amazing performance”
– CD Blender
“There were touches of the magic that Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel capture so flawlessly.”
– Raleigh Music
“Nestled in a great pocket, feeling all at once focused on storytelling and intimacy while not being afraid to wield a big musical stick.”
– For Folk’s Sake
“Green and Hood expertly weave pop-sensible tracks that ride the alternative folk wave straight into a medley of musical influences. From a clap-along opener on through the incredible rock-leaning guitar showcase that is ‘Welcome You Into My Head’ and the sweet, unrequited vocal-centric closing number, it’s another compelling installment from the Tucsonans.”
