“Being a black musician [in the ‘60s] was a big struggle,” Wood told the Weekly last year a week before he first performed at the Fox Theater. “I had to really love what I was doing to keep on going.” Every time the longtime R&B musician – known for Top 20 hits like “The Oogum Boogum Song” and “Gimme Little Sign” – performs, his eyes glow with a serious passion, particularly along lyrics like “You wear the cute mini skirt with your brother’s sloppy shirt/ I admit it girl, I can dig it.”
Wood recently built his own studio in San Bernardino so now any time he feels an itch, he can unleash some more oogum boogum. Singer Ron Ellison, known for his work with the legendary Delfonics, will also be on hand to deliver love making hits like "La-la Means I Love You." [AJ]
