The History of Wood 'n Crow

Dan Crow says: John Wood was raised in Phoenix, Arizona and, though he couldn’t explain why, he wanted to be more like Dan Crow. Dan Crow was raised in Denver, Colorado and, though he couldn’t explain why, he wanted to be less like John Wood.

 

The two family music artists finally met in Santa Monica, California when John, who was booking concerts at the famous McCabe’s Guitar Shop, saw Dan perform and was, frankly, awe-struck! Crow’s virtuosity on the kazoo inspired John to become a superb guitarist. John booked Danno! The two iconoclasts became fast friends, with each doing thousands of school assemblies and hundreds of birthday parties. They eventually shared stages and recording studios throughout the west. Dues paid!

 

Our respect for family entertainment and the kid’s music business led us to establish the artist support site, www.kidzmusic.com. We’ve since decided to interview and review all the artists that make the magic happen.

 

John Wood says: Scoot up closer, kids. Dan’s perspective is a tad skewed, that’s why I like him. I first saw him at the freeway offramp holding a well-worn cardboard sign that read, Will Kiss a Cow for $$! Well, that piqued my curiosity, so we went looking for a cow and sure enough he was true to his cardboard words.

 

We do everything together: play guitar, write songs, do podcasts, curl our hair, do our nails – we are inseparable except we live 870 miles apart as the crow flies. Our mission is to entertain, educate and certainly change the demeanor of those who have a difficult time smiling. Yes, I see a hand raised at the back of the room… tune in!
