Stocker Arts Center Welcomes “Guys with Guitars”

“Guys with Guitars,” featuring Doug Wood, Darren Frate and Patrick Woods, will perform at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, August 25 and 26, in the Cirigliano Studio Theatre.

Lorain County Community College’s Stocker Arts Center will present its first show of the season, “Guys with Guitars,” featuring Doug Wood, Darren Frate and Patrick Woods, as part of the revamped Studio Sessions series at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, August 25 and 26, in the Cirigliano Studio Theatre.

The Studio Sessions series was previously called the Studio Theatre Cabaret series. This season, the series is focusing on professional musicians from the region. It is still being held in the intimate Cirigliano Studio Theatre.

“Guys with Guitars” includes three regionally accomplished solo musicians live on stage. Wood started the group more than five years ago and it has since appeared as part of the Studio Cabaret Series in 2014.

The show features a mix of each musician performing solo pieces, along with collaborations of original and recognizable cover tunes from artists like Simon and Garfunkel, the Beatles and several more favorites. “We also have some fun collaborations we’ll be doing, especially some familiar tunes that the audience will know,” Wood said.

Wood is originally from the Elyria area and is excited to perform near his roots. “My family lived in the apartments across the street [from LCCC] and I went to kindergarten and first grade at the old Erie Elementary School,” he said. “My dad used to be a teacher and coach at Lake Ridge Academy in the early 1970s.” Wood has previously been featured on TV and radio shows such as “Echoes,” “River City Folk” and “Late Night with David Letterman.”

Wood’s tune “Cat Dance” was orchestrated by Paul Shaffer and performed live twice on the “Late Night with David Letterman” show on NBC. Additionally, all three of the players had their most recent CD releases played on NPR’s “Echoes,” which airs on over 200 stations nationwide.

To purchase tickets, call the box office at (440) 366-4040. Hours are Monday through Friday from noon to 6 p.m. The box office is also open 90 minutes before ticketed events (60 minutes before Student Matinees). Guests may also purchase tickets online at www.stockerartscenter.com.
