Biography

The Late Night Drive Story, 2007 When does a Late Night Drive last over four years? It does when It’s an original blend of blues, jazz and adult rock from the Milwaukee band, Late Night Drive. The band took its name from a song written by front man and songwriter, Mike Woods. This should answer the age old question, “what came first, the band name or the song title”? We still don’t know which came first, the chicken or the egg? But that one is best left to philosophers and agricultural experts. The song and the band’s music both reflect the feeling of freedom the open road and great music can bring on a Late Night Drive. It doesn’t matter where the road leads because the destination is a mood not a place. You can’t mapquest the journey, but when you get there its worth whatever a gallon of gas is going for these days. Since the very beginning, the decision was made to concentrate on original material…wherever the lyric or melody went. Genre doesn’t matter. The first song was a tune Mike wrote for the first practice called “Glass Half Full.” That session led to a careful building of the group’s song repertoire and several trips into the studio. A 5 song EP was completed in 2003 and an album has been in the works since February, 2006. Time and money permitting, look for its completion in 2007.
