Marty's On Newport
Faithfully donning a fedora, tie and suspenders, Brenton Wood’s still got style and soul. Originally from Shreveport, Louisiana, the singer made a name for himself out west back in 1967. That’s the year Wood released “The Oogum Boogum Song,” and “Gimme Little Sign” off Double Shot Records. He followed up the chart climbing feats with the less appreciated but still legendary ballad “Me and You,” on his sophomore album. Wood, at 76, still frequents the oldies circuit and shows no signs of slowing down. He performs for audiences, young and old, who sing-along to all his songs. But don’t croon “Me and You” to impress your hyna unless able to hit those high notes. Otherwise, let brother Brenton take it away!
