No, not The Woodrow Band, which is still recruiting, y’all. We’re talking about Light Horse Harry, the Western swing/blues/rock band composed entirely of Woodrow Wilson High School students and one alum.

Lead singer/guitarist Zach Youpa sent us the most professional email with links to their Bandcamp and Facebook pages. He says they are working on manufacturing CDs, and they have a show in Austin Sept. 21.

Youpa has a voice that reminds me of Billy Joe Armstrong of Greenday, but on “Ain’t Your Way,” he surprised me with some pretty soulful blues singing for a Lakewood kid.

It’s definitely worth a listen.
