Mallett Brothers Band at The Wildcat Tavern – October 27th

JACKSON NH – The Mallett Brothers Band’s busy tour schedule over the past seven years has helped them to build a dedicated fan base across the U.S. and beyond while still calling the state of Maine their home.

The Mallett Brothers BandWith a style that can ranges from alt-country to Americana, country, jam and roots rock, theirs is a musical melting pot that’s influenced equally by the singer/songwriter tradition as by harder rock, classic country and psychedelic sounds. Texas Hill Country Explore Magazine calls them “New England’s wildly eclectic crew of genre rebels.” Bill Copeland Music News says “Combining their authentic roots rock sound with a reflective lyrical style that perceives stories on the level of epic myth, it’s like William Faulkner has been resurrected with an electric guitar in hand.”

Jonathan Sarty opens the show at 7pm

Dinner Reservations are Required for Guaranteed Seating 603 383-6502
