THE MALLETT BROTHERS BAND
The Mallett Brothers Band is an alt-country/rock band from Portland, Maine.
No Depression says they “make you want to scream at people to make them aware of the awesomeness that they are more than likely missing.”
Dispatch Magazine calls them a “six-piece living inferno.”
They have been “gobbling up accolades like sunflower seeds” since their 2009 inception, according to the Portland Press Herald.
They were voted Best Local Act, Best Live Act, Best Roots Act, and won additional awards for Best Local Album (Low Down) and Best Song (Low Down) in the 2012 Portland Phoenix Best Music Poll. They were voted Best Local Act, Best Live Act, and had their debut album named Best Local Album in the 2011 Phoenix BMP, after their first full year of playing together. 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.
They won the 2011 Oxford Rockin’ Country Showdown Competition, garnering them a $25K grand prize (which went almost entirely to gas and van repairs to support their busy tour schedule); their debut record was the top-selling local CD in Bull Moose Music in 2010; and their sophomore release, “Low Down,” was featured on several year-end best-of lists this past December, nationally as well as locally.
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’ve played national festivals as well as sold-out venues ranging from grange halls to rock clubs throughout the Northeast U.S.
Join them at The Asylum Saturday April 27, 2013 8:00 pm – 11:30 pm
