Lagoon fans, let’s take a moment to welcome back to the stage seasoned Lagoon performer, Wendy Woo. With her fabulous display of talent and zest, Wendy will be closing out the eight-week series on Aug. 2. Pack your picnics and smiling faces and help us wrap up this amazing Lagoon season.
Many of you have already had the pleasure of watching Wendy perform. For those of you who have not, here is the scoop on the band. Wendy Woo and her crew have enchanted audiences of all ages and demographics with her original songwriting, powerful vocals and dynamite personality. Dubbed “Queen of the Denver Scene,” Woo has recorded more than 200 original songs and plays more than 150 shows each year. Her trademark sound combines smooth guitar playing with her original “slaptap” technique, where she uses the guitar body and fret board as a percussion instrument.
Woo’s talent has earned her numerous honors, including Westword Magazine’s “Singer/Songwriter of the Year” five times, which won her a spot in Westword’s Hall of Fame. She has played at numerous notable venues across the country, including Blue Bird Café in Nashville and Red Rocks Amphitheatre, and performed alongside legends such as Michael Franti, Sheryl Crow, Indigo Girls, Brad Paisley, Carly Simon and many more.
While you are at the concert, don’t forget to take advantage of delicious food provided by the onsite food trucks – Wing Shack, The Taco Stop, Sustainable Spoon and Ba-Nom-a-Nom. You can enjoy your yummy eats while listening to Little Kid Rock performer, Tea on Mars. They will be opening for Wendy Woo this coming Wednesday.
As the summer is coming to an end, take advantage of all the music, food and warm summer nights you have left. We hope you choose to share all of this with us at Lagoon. See you Wednesday!
