The “alt-folk sextet” Woodenbox were described by Uncut as “like Dexys covered by the E Street Band – horn led perky pop with a Mariachi twist”. Formed in 2008, the band was drawn together, their website described, due to “their love of a fine sandwich, spaghetti westerns and The Beatles combined with an adoration of all things Mariachi, particularly ponchos”.

Their debut album “Home and the Wildhunt” unsurprisingly charmed critics and audiences alike. The follow up is due out in May under Olive Grove Records and is entitled “End Game”. Lead singer Ali Downer explains the motivation behind the release “The album was created as a unit falling apart but looking to stay together.”

Support comes for the evening from Emma Stevens.

A lifelong passion for music matched with a geeky fascination for social media and websites resulted in the creation of Inverness Gigs back in 2010. The aim of the site is to help promote, support and generally raise awareness of the local music scene.In fairness fifteen years of being a psychiatric nurse never prepared me for the experiences that we have had over the last few years and the evolution of Inverness Gigs has certainly been a steep learning curve.I currently write (less and less), edit and co-ordinate most of the Inverness Gigs activities.Occasionally seen on Twitter, and  LinkedIn, if you want get in touch you can contact me via our Facebook page.
