Woodie Alan Description

With namesake singer and frontman Alan Paul back in the U.S., Beijing's premier blues and jam band has been on hold. Now he's returning for a visit and City Weekend's 2008 Beijing Band of the Year will be back -- for one night only.

Blues, jams, originals and classic covers with a twist.

Don't miss this rare chance to see Woodie Alan back in action.

Some of the praise for their debut CD, Beijing Blues:

"Best Chinese blues band I ever heard. Who knew?"
-Billy F. Gibbons, ZZ Top

"This great mix of Western and Eastern music proves that blues is a universal language. A cool CD with lots of soul that will not only appeal to blues fans."
--Joe Bonamassa

“A very pleasantly smoking CD...good tunes and good musicians clearly enjoying making great music together."
--Charlie Musselwhite

"Simply amazing."
-Col. Bruce Hampton

"The essence of world music: stone cold American blues with subtle Chinese overtones and killer slide guitar."
-Brad Tolinski, Guitar World
