Slur Presents WOODY DARES & THE WESTERN'S TONERS - Live @ Slur Bar On Wednesday 09th of April !
Woody Dares discovered rock and roll music at fifteen years old in St Louis, Missouri (USA). A transplant from France, he was taking English courses and staying with a host family when he started banging out Chuck Berry and Elvis Presley tunes on his first guitar. Once the fire of music started burning in the summer of 2004, it never stopped.
When he returned to France, he had only four words etched in his mind: play, write, sing, compose. Woody, (formerly Armand Garreau) fronted punk bands (name of bands) as singer and guitarist for two years and began to study at the world famous CIAM music institute in the city of Bordeaux.
After Woody finished school, he ditched the books and joined the band Laréplik, a prominent street-folk band in Bordeaux. Fueled with punk rock energy and instruments like accordion, double bass, drums, banjo and guitar, Laréplik won over crowds and continued to ascend the ranks of the French music scene and beyond.

Laréplik toured and played 50+ shows in France, Switzerland, Czech Republic and Germany playing with bands like Pigalle, Peter Pan Speedrock, BananeMétalik, Métisolea, Les Sales Majestés, and Los TresPuntos. Then the band recorded their third album : “De l’amour, de la mer, et de la mort” (“About love, sea, and death”).
After that, Woody decided to put his guitar and song writing ability back into action and record his own songs. The first EP by Woody Dares is called “La vie est un brouillon” (“Life is a draft”).

Travelling around South East Asia in 2012, Woody found a home in a beautiful Thai resort where they hired him to play one hour of Rock’n’Roll every night. Since then, he has done over 300 shows in Thailand, Lao, Cambodia, Indonesia and France, as well as live radio performances and interviews.
Recently, Martin Joly and Patrick Becknell joined him to create a high energy power trio that goes by the name of Woody Dares &The Western’s Toners. They’re currently touring around Thailand and Cambodia playing songs from 1936 to 2014, cover tunes and original compositions from blues to folk, punk to funk, jazz for good measure, and that good old fifties rockabilly.
