"Jukebox Hero Spits out Favorites"

Who: Jukebox Hero

When: Tonight at Motherloaded Tavern, Breckenridge and Sunday at Snake River Saloon, Keystone

Where'd the name come from? The band name is more of a definition of the band; we play almost everything, similar to what you would hear from a Jukebox.

Home base: Copper Mountain

Who are you? Jukebox Hero started playing in the winter of 2008 to the aprés ski crowd at Copper Mountain, mixing classic hits from artists like Bob Marley, Hall and Oats, the Eagles, Van Morrison, Steve Miller and The Band with current favorites from artists like Jason Mraz, Jack Johnson, Collie Budz, Old Crow and many others. Jukebox Hero plays most genres of music from rap to country and loves taking requests from the audience.

If your music were a tangible item, what would it be, and why? Jukebox Hero would be a can of mixed nuts, because there is a lot of variety, something for everyone, and we are salty so you can't stop eating (or listening)!

Why do people love ya? Because we play what they want to hear, and we do it with energy and fun!

How do you keep it fresh? We are constantly adding songs to our catalog from good requests we get from audiences. Occasionally we bring a special guest up to play or sing a song with us; the crowd loves the variety and so do we!

What's the craziest thing you've done/weirdest experience? We just played a party in Boulder for the Hash House Harriers drinking/running club on Memorial Day weekend. Let's just say they know how to drink, and they have some really funny drinking songs, and what's more fun than playing to a crowd of 100 men and women all wearing red dresses singing along to “Billy Jean” ... great stuff.

"Songs from the Street"

Songs From The Street by Peter Martin
Guitarist Supplements Street Performing With Traditional Gigs
By Peter MartinThe Inquirer & Mirror - Nantucket, Massachusetts

Last summer he quit his Boston temp job. He didn't "work" anymore, and sang about it instead.
"Rather play in the street for free than get another job in the city" are the lyrics from "Don't Work Anymore," the eighth track of Mike Woodard's first solo CD.
Woodard threw his guitar case down on Main Street last summer and called it his office. He punched out every day with about $50 in cash.
"Sometimes I make $75 in an hour. Other times I make $30 for an entire day," said Woodard. His song continues, "You can't make enough money to be happy."

After a summer of strictly street performing, Woodard has moved i

He is tall and lanky, a little like James Taylor, whom he idolizes, but his voice sounds more like that of Dave Matthews.
Woodard stood at the end of a small brick patio with a six-string acoustic guitar, a bottle of beer, and a microphone as the film "Small Time Crooks" came to a conclusion a the White Dog Friday night.
"I've got to keep it quiet, there's a movie going on," he explained to the audience. Some patrons pay attention, others to their company, but they all hear his folk rock and voice. Passersby on the street ask friends "who is that?"

A producer from an ABC soap opera asked the same question and requested Woodard's CDs, of which he has sold about a hundred this summer.

"A guy yelled at me once. A grumpy old man told me, 'that's not a real job, why don't you get a job?' " said Woodard. "He was just pissed because he didn't know how to play the guitar or something."
Woodard knows how to play the guitar. Beside playing the Colorado area and many Boston clubs he's been in four bands and put out three CDs. In 1996 he played with Up With People when he and Ryan Dekoe, future friend and manager, shared a flight to Caracas in a Venezuelan military cargo plane at the req
After his gig with Up With People, Woodard and Dekoe moved to Boston "to become rock stars," he said. That goal has not been met, yet. Tired of Boston, the city, and $1,000 in parking tickets, Woodard took Dekoe's advice and headed for Nantucket.

Without setting foot on-island, he had already helped produce a song about it.
"The harpooner," a song about a drunken Figawi sailor, was Woodard's first connection with Nantucket. Later, works like "She Must Have Come From Somewhere," a song about the girlfriend he met on Nantucket, more accurately reflect his impression of Nantucket today.

Monday and Thursday he plays lead guitar and vocals for the Janitor's Gulch Band at a local bar. Saturday afternoon Janitor's Gulch plays at the Cisco Brewery and are compensated with cases of beer. Woodard hopes to play a few gigs at the Chicke

"CD Review"

SKIING MAGAZINE
review of Mike Woodard's 1st album Mike Woodard and the Hippy Freedom Fighters, Workin' It

If Great bridges are a trademark of fine acoustic rock, Mike Woodard's music is filled with Golden Gates. Putting folk, jazz, blues, and spanish influences into an orchestral reinvention of the open air jam, the Freedom Fighters trounce mere Grateful Dead imitators. A brilliant debut with a hot rhythm section-our adventure pick. - Skiing Magazine
