The Mallett Brothers Band is a nationally touring alt-country/rock band from Maine. Slightly more rock than country, theirs is a musical melting pot that’s influenced equally by folk and singer/songwriter influences as by harder rock, punk and psychedelic sounds. Led by brothers Luke and Will Mallett, the band is rounded out by Brian Higgins on drums, Nick Leen on bass, and Wally on dobro and electric guitar. 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, the band has 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. Their touring circuit stretches from the Appalachian to the Rocky Mountains, from Maine to Mississippi, and they’ve appeared at some of the finest music venues in the country, including the Continental Club in Austin, the Birchmere in Alexandria, the Bluebird in Nashville, and more.
For 24 years, King Memphis has been making Portland dance with their brand of rockabilly and rock and roll music. Headed by Portland guitar whiz Matt Robbins, they were one of the first bands to play the very first Maine Brew Fest! After a long hiatus, King Memphis is back to shake the stage and put a little froth in your beery goodness!
For a guy who keeps such a low profile (he does not have a web site and only recently bought a cell phone), Steve Jones is one of Maine’s best known band leaders and musicians, and throughout his 20+ year career, he has played with practically everyone on the Maine music scene. In addition to fronting his own band, he still plays guitar and sings in The Boneheads, one of Northern New England’s's most beloved roots-rock bands. He has been called Maine’s most in-demand session guitarist and he is a producer and arranger on many local CDs released each year.
