SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – It’s been nearly 41 years since the Woodstock music fest, but one band is keeping the buzz going, man.

Woodstock Mud is a tribute group that performs classic rock originally played at the infamous 1969 gathering by artists like Janis Joplin, The Who, and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.

Frontman Michael Aguilar says the band aims to recreate the music just as it was at Woodstock – down to every strum, drum beat, note, and solo.

Aguilar says die-hard Woodstock geeks keep them on task at concerts by hovering as they perform, checking for authenticity in their chords.

The guys don’t mind though, because they respect the sanctity of the music and want to get it just right.

To avoid taking away from the iconic tunes, Aguilar says they don’t dress up in ’60s gear like typical tribute bands.

Their next gig is this Sunday (Jul. 11) at Woodstock Tribute Weekend at the Orange Country Market Place in Costa Mesa, California.
