C.D. Woodbury has performed in Texas Roadhouses and in Stadiums. He has performed for two US Presidents, foreign dignitaries, and Jimi's music for the Hendrix family. He has jammed with jazz legends, international blues stars, and has worked with sidemen to the biggest rock acts. Yet, he still remains "the Northwest's best-kept secret". Though he has played many styles, he always returns to the blues and American roots music on his guitar.
In 2009, the C.D. Woodbury Band was formed primarily out of an unrehearsed appearance at the Snohomish Blues Invasion with CD and former members of Tim Casey's back-up band, the Bluescats. The Bluescats were one of the top acts in the region and a top selling act in Europe, including edging Eric Clapton to be the number 1 blues act in Belgium one year. Chris Kliemann, Don Montana, and Mike Fish are a dynamic, tight rhythm section.
The CD Woodbury Band plays a mixture of new interpretations of old favorites, obscure jems, and original songs.

“When I got back to Seattle from my Roomful (of Blues) stint I needed a guitarist. On the good word of Randy Oxford I exchanged e-mails with C.D. We played our first gig together, no rehearsal. ...He is absolutely a consummate professional. That's A Fact, Jack.” Mark DuFresne
"he is a musician's guitarist." Roy Brown, from the March 2009 WBS Bluesletter
