About Floodwood:

The foothills of the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York, also known as “The Leatherstocking Region” is home to Floodwood, the northeast’s newest progressive string band. While the band is merely a year old, there is already a huge buzz around this band as they’ve been tearing up festivals, PACS, & clubs on the east coast with their original brand of newgrass.Al Schnier & Vinnie Amico not only play together in moe., one of the premier touring bands in the country, but they’ve also recorded & toured as the Americana group Al & The Transamericans for over a decade.Likewise, Jason Barady spent over 10 years recording & touring with the Bluegrass group Wooden Spoonfrom Taos, until returning to his hometown in central, NY.Nick Piccininniis a largely self taught violinist, who learned his bluegrass chops the old fashioned way – in festival picking circles & bluegrass festivals. He’s been a professional banjo player & fiddler in high demand on the bluegrass circuit since the age of 13, & has toured w/ The Abrams Brothers, The Atkinsons, The Delaneys, & more.Bass player, Zachary Fleitz is a Berklee Graduate & Hypnotic Clambake alumnus. Zach joined forces w. Wooden Spoon & has played w. J & Nick for the last few years.
About The Mallet Brothers:

The Mallett Brothers Band is an alt-country/rock band from Portland, Maine. Slightly more rock than country, theirs is a musical melting pot that’s influenced equally by the folk and singer/songwriter influence of brothers Luke and Will’s dad David Mallett – himself a noted musician – as by the harder rock, punk and even psychedelic influences of the other band members. Brian Higgins on drums, Nick Leen on bass, Wally on dobro and electric guitar and Nate Soule on electric and acoustic guitars and mandolin. It’s song-driven music that holds up under the lens of solitary listening, but that’s equally apt to crank a room full of rockers into whiskey-fueled high gear.

Since forming in 2009, they’ve released three full length albums and toured the country extensively, providing support for acts ranging from The Josh Abbot Band, Blackberry Smoke,  Charlie Robison, and the Turnpike Troubadours, to .38 Special, Toby Keith, Chris Caigle, and Travis Tritt. They have also appeared on stage in a huge range of clubs from Maine to Texas, including the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville and the famed Continental Club in Austin.

The Mallett Brothers Band was named best band in New England, and recieved best album in New England for “LAND” at the New England Music Awards this year. Sharing the nomination with some powerhouse bands such as Kingsley Flood and Deer Tick made these awards even more of a nice surprise.
