Taste of Cheese (Wisconsin Exposure 1 of 5)

The Northwoods Band was formed in August of 2004 and have been performing mainly in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Sharing the stage with Fat Mat Maw Rooney, Stealin' Strings, Natty Nation and The Big Wu is common for the Northwoods Band on any given performance.

Unfortunately, I have not been able to see the Northwoods Band live as of yet but that will be changing shortly. On any given evening the Northwoods Band brings 2-4 hours of original material that crosses through all ends of the musical rollercoaster.

The band is made up of Jake Ilika (lead guitar and vocals), Joel Ward (rhythm guitar and lead vocals), Ben Asseff (bass and vocals), and Charles Smyrk (drums and percussion).

Upcoming Performances

Mar. 10 - The Terminal - Minneapolis, MN
April 28 - Kathy's Pub - Rochester, MN

They have plans to release their first studio album in April.

Some Grooves:
Who Turned Out Your Lights>Goulash
