Thursday, July 24, 6:30 - 9:30 p.m. The Damariscotta River Association's Midcoast Music Fest at Round Top Farm (the third of three concerts of the Midcoast Music Fest). Maine's best music, food, beer and oysters in the Darrows Barn, one of the region's most memorable performance spaces.|
The Mallett Brothers Band is an alt-country/rock band from Portland, Maine. Drawing from an array of influences including rock and roll, folk, blues, bluegrass, neo-traditional and classic country and even punk, MBB are known for high-intensity live performances. They were nominated for "Best Emerging Artist" of 2011 by Deli Magazine, Boston, and "Best Band/Act in Maine" in the 2011 New England Music Awards. Find out more at The Mallett Brothers Band.
Opening for The Mallett Brothers are two bands this year: Amy and The Engine and Joe Gallant and The Transit. Amy and The Engine (featuring Amy Allen) is a Berklee College-based band fronted by Maine's Amy Allen that features the songwriting team of Allen and Tyler Perry (no, not the movie star). Self described as "indie-folk-pop", the band formed in the long winter of 2014 in Boston and, in addition to Allen and Perry, also features Ben Kling (mandolin/keys), Cody Nilsen (lead guitar), Will Goodroad (drums) and Blain Crawford (bass). Their debut single, "I Got You", will be released to radio in mid May and a full length album is slated for fall 2014. Allen, named the Portland Phoenix's "Best Female Vocalist" in 2011 and 2013, met Tyler in a Berklee writing class when they were assigned to write a song together and they haven't stopped writing since! They count among their influences The Beatles, Paul Simon, Dr. Dog, Scissor Sisters and Fleetwood Mac and they will be touring up and down the east coast during the summer of 2014. Find out more at Amy and the Engine.
Joe Gallant and The Transit is a four piece alt-country rock act based out of Portland Maine. Gallant has drawn comparisons to Ryan Adams and Tom Petty with a "distinctive gruff-but-melodic" vocal delivery (Bangor Daily News) and a style considered "twangy, smooth and hooky" (Portland Press Herald). Drawing from an influence of country, blues and rock, JG+T keeps their audience dancing and singing along throughout their latest release "The Rise and The Fall."
