Woody’s Rampage’s “Tip Jar” album is a strong collection of songs from a power-°©trio
with a rough edge. Front man and guitarist/singer Ryan Hall takes his vocal pyrotechnics
on a range from a low growl on the blues to a purely melodic tone—just listen to TLC’s
“Waterfalls” and “Kiss from a Rose” by Seal. There’s even a powerful instrumental cover
of “Freeway Jam.” Covering the old warhorse “House of the Rising Sun” to obscure
blues laments “Cypress Grove” and “Dead Letter Blues,” Woody’s Rampage fills the “Tip
Jar” with power rock, aged treasures from the past, and beautiful melodies.
Guitarist Ryan Hall, a New Orleans native, now divides his time between Denton, Texas
and New Orleans, where he fires up the guitar chair for Patrick Williams and His Blues
Xpress, a New Orleans power house, for festivals like Umbria Jazz in Italy.

Bassist Forrest Johnson, a native of Dallas, plays with force. He’s obviously influenced
by European metal groups and “Clutch” from the USA. Forrest completely fills the
bottom with great licks and roaring lines. Since joining Woody’s Rampage, Forrest has
recorded on the band’s second album, “Big Easy Homeboy.”
Drummer Dave Whitlock, another Texan from Lubbock, is the old pro anchorman of the
trio. Consistent energy and tasteful fills flow out from his playing. Dave’s experience with
different styles in different bands means he never runs out of ideas. He gets it all done
very convincingly.

“It was an absolute pleasure having Woody’s Rampage at House of Blues Las Vegas. They
were some of the best groups we have ever had in our venue playing four straight nights
of amazing music. Walking into the venue and seeing our guests standing up, clapping
and singing along to the music was a great sight to see. With all of the entertainment
in Las Vegas, we had guests returning night after night just to see them perform again.
People could not get enough. Their passion for music was felt through their performance
making everyone want to get up and dance. Whether it was Ryan belting out with his
soulful southern voice, or playing a solo on his guitar behind his head, everyone felt every
moment of their performance & craved more. We have never seen the place so lively.”
-Brian Kline, Director of Venue Operations, House of Blues Las Vegas.
