Hank Woji & Friends in Concert! Bill Frey Opens

March 1, 2025 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
$15 – $20.00
Hank Woji and Friends in Concert.…what a great way to kick off the partaking of March spring celebrations!
A self-described “Jersey Shore Ex-Pat turned West Texas Desert Rat”, Hank Woji cut his musical teeth as a bassist in the vibrant Asbury Park, NJ music scene of the 1980s & 90s, playing in some of the Garden State’s most dynamic and innovative bands, while performing at festivals, and in clubs and concert halls, from Virginia to Ontario, in styles ranging from Blues and R&B to Reggae and Rock & Roll to County Rock and Worldbeat!
In the Spring of 2001 Hank moved to Houston, TX, fell in with a community of great Texas songwriters, and found a new musical voice as a Singer Songwriter. But, destiny turned a page and it was his chance move, in 2009, to the far West Texas desert town of Terlingua that has most reshaped his life and his music.
Critics have described Hank’s music as “acoustic-wielding, sharply observed, Americana all the way” and being “in the best tradition of the Texas troubadours like Guy Clarke, Townes Van Zandt and Butch Hancock” and that “His troubadour style also comes very close to the style of Woody Guthrie or Pete Seeger, or as we heard on ‘Nebraska’ from Bruce Springsteen.”
Hank has released six self-produced CDs: Medallion in 2005; American Dreams in 2008; There Was A Time in 2010; Holy Ghost Town in 2013; The Working Life in 2014; and most recently Highways, Gamblers, Devils and Dreams in 2023.
Of his recently released 6th CD, Tony Award winning songwriter, Anaïs Mitchell says: “Highways, Gamblers, Devils and Dreams is a sprawling meditation on mythic American themes, Hank is a warm-hearted and precise troubadour of the old school.” The album debuted in September 2023 at #5 on the Euro Americana chart and #3 on the FAI Folk Music chart.
Over his 40+ year music career, Hank has performed with such notable artists as:
Jonathan Byrd, Joe Jencks, Sonny Kenn, Hogan & Moss, David Amram, Spook Handy, Jaimee Harris, Susan Herndon, Terry “Buffalo” Ware, Grant Peeples, Bob Livingston, Rebekah Pulley, Clarence Clemens, Butch Hancock, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Bruce Springsteen and Pete Seeger.
Hank is a proud member of AFM Local 1000 and tours nationally, performing regularly at festivals, coffeehouses, theaters, clubs and house concerts as a solo singer songwriter; in various duo and trio configurations; and with his TexAmericana Jam Band, The Hank Woji Conspiracy.
Listen to some of his music:
