Bio

One of the best musical partnerships in Southern California, Woodstock Mud has captivated audiences with their three-part harmonies, inspired song list and excellent musicianship for over a decade.

With an impassioned point of view as personal as it is message-oriented, Woodstock Mud has always sung about socially relevant issues. The songs they perform chronicle two of the most evolutionary decades of our times and the music touched the lives of fans of all ages through timeless hits including "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes," "Time of the Season," "Ohio," "Woodstock", "Going up the Country," "Spinning Wheel," "Run Through the Jungle," "Stand by Me", and "San Francisco" to name just a few. They have, in fact, become the reborn voice of ghosts of the 1960's and 1970's.

Musically, Woodstock Mud continues to enhance their legacy with new songs and audience praise. Potent as ever in holding an audience, fans continue to attend performance after performance to feel the music once again.

When Woodstock Mud originally formed in 1990 as Maybe Tonite, with each partner already claiming their own rock ‘n roll pedigree, they instantly bonded. Together, Woodstock Mud forged something magical, made possible by the harmonic convergence of their distinct and complementary voices. Native Californian's Michael Aguilar and Ray Chavez began their careers as acoustic folk/rock singers playing in clubs and coffeehouses throughout the west coast. Drummer Vince "VC" Chavez began playing drums in his high school marching band and eventually played in dinner theatres all across southern California and touring with The Young Americans.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Steven Radice was thrust into a family who held high regard for names like Sinatra, Basie, and Ella. From an early age, Steven took to singing vocal harmony, soaking up swing era sounds of the Mills Brothers, the Ink Spots, and the Pied Pipers. He has performed in doo-wop groups, folk ensembles, and anywhere good harmony singing could be found. That he found his way into Woodstock Mud was truly a stroke of good luck. "I heard Mike and Ray were looking for a harmony singer. I had one listen and was immediately hooked. There's a musical and personal chemistry I love. It's great to be called the third voice of Woodstock Mud."

These four consummate singer-songwriters and musicians were united by the seeds of change sown throughout the '60s and ‘70's to create a musical force. According to Aguilar, "When we heard Steven put on that third harmony, we thought we were gonna' die. It was about the rightest thing we ever heard."

Today, Woodstock Mud continues to describe the separate and joint visions of Michael Aguilar, Steven Radice, Ray and Vince Chavez as they continue to tour, record and advocate for social, and political justice.
Solo commitments notwithstanding, Woodstock Mud has always been about community, and both as musicians and as Californians, their dedication is unwavering.

Just as they will always address the important issues facing our society in their music, Woodstock Mud will forever remain four together in song and one in spirit.
