Wildwood: 2000 - 2011 RIP

All good things come to an end and Wildwood has been great fun for the last 11 years. We entertained a lot of folks around the California Central Coast with our brand of roots country, American folk, and bluegrass music. I want to thank my band mates, Julio Boysenberry and Ron Miller, as well as our old friend and an original member of Wildwood, Paul Beeler. I'm proud of what we were able to do and those guys did more than their share and taught me a lot. We put a lot heart, the best of our musical abilities, and a love of this music into Wildwood. We played a lot of fun shows and a lot of great music. Now the time has come to move on in hopes that other musical directions will materialize.

Thanks to all our Wildwood pals - your support and friendship was our real inspiration.
Yours Truly,
Dr. Dan
Wildwood - RIP

Wildwood General Information

Wildwood is an acoustic group originally formed in January, 2000 on the California Central Coast. We perform an upbeat mix of acoustic folk and bluegrass, from ballads to breakdowns. Wildwood is available to entertain at private parties, coffee shops, and saloons. We do tunes ranging from Bob Dylan to modern folk ballads of Townes Van Zandt, Michael Murphy, John Fogerty, Steve Goodman, and Jean Ritchie, traditional bluegrass of Bill Monroe, Flatt and Scruggs, and Jim and Jesse, and progressive bluegrass of Del McCoury, Herb Pedersen, Country Gentlemen, and The Seldom Scene.

With Ron Miller onboard as the new lead vocal core of Wildwood '09 we're ready to re-take the Central Coast!

For bookings, please see contact information below.

Wildwood features:

Re-formed in 2009 when Ron Miller joined an ongoing musical partnership already in progress with Julio and Dan, our first performance in our new configuration was in June 2009 at the Slow Down Pub in Arroyo Grande. We're looking forward to many more and will see you soon.
