The Woodbox Gang’s influences are as diverse as the music which they perform. The group admires artists such as Tom Waits, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, and the Ramones for their enduring inventiveness and their courage to “do their own thing, regardless of what anyone else may or may not be doing.” The band’s multi-instrumentalist Alex Kirt says “We are influenced by everything we’ve heard, whether it’s a symphony orchestra or a push rod knockin’ in an old 350 engine. Just about anything that makes a sound can be used to enhance the mood of a tune.” This idea can be heard on any one of the group’s 5 albums on which they’ve used traditional guitar, mandolin, lap steel, banjo, fiddle, and bass combined with didjeridoos, kazoos, sawblades, gutbuckets, crowbars, ashtrays, and rusty gasoline cans to add brilliant audio hues their musical palette.
