Wood Blind

HOMEGROWN WEEK ON KUMD.
A mutual love of Ska brought Veikko Lepisto and Jason Wussow together to form Woodblind over two years ago. They met at Wussow's coffee shop, Beaner's Central, when Lepisto returned to Duluth after more than twenty years in Los Angeles performing with musicians ranging from the Royal Crown Review to Bette Midler.

Wussow has been part of several bands including Flux Skapacitor and No Room to Pogo. The duo has gigged steadily and released singles and videos; they now have their first full-length album, Big Voice, coming out and dropped by our studios on April 29, 2016 to perform. They had shows throughout the town over the weekend, including participating in part of the Homegrown Music Festival.

Listen to our session with this acoustic ska duo featuring Jason Wusso and Veikko Lepisto from April 30, 2014. They joined us during Homegrown week and talked about how they connected up to start playing together.
