Wood & Steel
Chuck Colley and Erik Wendelken play original instrumental music that has been described as folk-blue/jazz. A mix of upbeat driving tunes to sensitive waltzes and much in between. Typical comments state the soulful blend of guitar and bass are clever but simple. 'Very easy and fun to listen to'. Chuck Colley and Erik Wendelkend have been playing music together for over a decade. Both transplanted to Nantucket Island about the same time and hooked up with each other through other musicians. Mainly the'Eel Grass' boys. Both started teaching at Nantucket High School in 1996 and both have wonderful wives that support them even though they are musicians. Both like to ride twin cylinder motorcycles. Both were born in the 20th century, in the U.S.A, and both like to make noise on large boxes made of wood and steel strings attached. The similarities are absolutely uncanny.
