Rochester is a strong music city, based mostly on its flourishing local scene. Touring acts aren't as kind to this city between cities. But every once in a while a band comes through, latches on, and rides the tide to local hero-dom.

The Wood Brothers are such a band. First opening for the poster-child of Rochester hero bands, Tedeschi Trucks Band. Then breaking through as a club pass band at the Rochester International Jazz Fest. They quickly returned as a main stage headliner, and headlined at the Lilac Festival soon after that. Wednesday night they were back at the Kodak Center for a rare wintertime visit. Tedeschi Trucks, Jazz Fest, Lilac Fest, Kodak… hitting all the Rochester sweet spots, it's no wonder they've found a place in the city's hearts.
