About the Band of Oz

“The Band of Oz was formed in 1967 as a part-time band playing fraternity parties and high school proms all over the South. In 1977 the band went on the road full time. Since that time the band has made an exceptional name for itself throughout the Southeast by playing the top clubs and corporate parties, and getting excellent reviews along the way. For several years the group has been a guest on most of the major beach concerts in the Carolinas, Virginia, and Georgia.

The Band of Oz is one of the most successful groups in the Southeast, and continues to get the very best reviews from the top people in the entertainment business. The band now features a full horn section to total a dynamic eight-member group. They still perform well over two-hundred shows per year for corporate events, festivals, concerts, wedding receptions, and many other public and private events.

“[They had]  humble beginnings in eastern North Carolina (Grifton) . It was a bunch of grammar and junior high school guys (because no one was old enough to drive) being hauled around in Ray Houston’s Chevy station wagon pulling a little red trailer. The group at that time was called The Avengers.”

“The Band of Oz released their latest CD ” Over the Rainbow ” They feel it is one of, if not their best work ever.

In March 2005, Band of Oz owners Keith Houston and David Hicks decided to bring a new, youthful sound to the band after Butch Barnes announced that he would be leaving in April 2005. At that time, Scott Fine /Vocals and Trombone, Tim Morris /Vocals and Trumpet, and Daniel Morris /Saxophone and Vocals joined the Band of Oz to bring a new youth and a BIG new sound to the band.”

About John

John Westmoreland (guitar) grew up in Pittsboro, NC playing blues and rock in various groups. In his late teens he began playing jazz and eventually studied jazz performance and classical composition.

A native North Carolinian with deep roots in the blues, John Westmoreland is a multidimensional musician. He studied jazz and classical composition at Berklee College of Music where he was also a recipient of the BEST scholarship. His teachers have been some of the foremost in the nation, including: Scott Sawyer of Raleigh NC, Jon Damian inventor of the Rubber Tellie and author of “The Guitarists Guide to Composing and Improvising,” and most recently he had the opportunity to study with the world renowned Malian virtuoso Djelimady Tounkara. He’s also attended a number of master classes including a workshop and performance with legendary jazz guitarist Jim Hall.

In 2011 John started collaborating with Senegalese griot Diali Cissokho who introduced him to the rich, captivating music of West Africa. It wasn’t long before they were playing together in the NC based band Diali Cissokho & Kaira Ba, and also performing together as a duo exploring the beautiful soundscapes of guitar and kora. As a solo artist he plays his own dynamic, and sensitive interpretations— interweaving jazz standards, African traditional music, Blues, Bach, the American Songbook, as well as his own original compositions.

Always looking for new and interesting directions to take his craft, he also provides improvisational accompaniment for yoga classes, and is currently exploring other ways that music can facilitate healing and personal growth.

Ellerbe Creek Band – Aug. 26 at 8

Listen to the great dancing sound of the Ellerbe Creek Band playing Saturday August 26, 2015 at the Pittsboro Roadhouse.

“In 2009, 5 childhood friends from Durham got together to reconnect and have a little fun playing the classic songs and singing the sweet harmonies that they grew up loving. What started out as just a once a week hobby quickly turned into a desire to go out and share these great classics with the rest of the Triangle. A few years and several shows later, we are still putting smiles on faces playing all the great tunes from days gone by. If you grew up in the 60’s, 70’s, or 80’s, you will love taking a trip down memory lane with The Ellerbe Creek Band.”
