“ROCKED THE HELL out of the room. Dave (Matthews) on Crack perhaps. Elmwood Band is just a lot of fun! Must See!" - Carolina Live Music Society


Elmwood Band was infectious from the very first note and played with a conviction and energy that is rarely seen in the jam scene. They may be young but they are musicians' musicians, each being equally and technically proficient at what they do.” - JamBand.com


"The band’s instrumentation was impressive to say the least — from the sax to drums to bass, they all had a moment to solo and shine." - Creative Loafing

Bio

Formed in 2008, Elmwood has quickly become one of the Southeasts most sought after live bands. Their amazing live performances landed them the coveted opening slot for O.A.R.'s Fall 2009 Arena tour.

Tours with G. Love and Special Sauce, Pat McGee Band, Edwin McCain and a side-stage performance in April 2009 with the Dave Matthews Band in Birmingham have capped off an impressive first year of touring.

Their music is hard to put in one category. Elements of rock, pop, funk, soul and jazz permeate the songs creating a different experience around every corner. The band however truly shines with their energetic live performance. Singer and guitar player Rusty Kelly and bass player Nash Johnson met in college where they started performing together as an acoustic duo. Sax player Derek Haight and drummer Donnie Marple came on board after responding to craigslist ads looking for musicians. Derek straight from 4 years of international touring, playing over 50 countries, and Donnie coming from his 2007 win of the Guitar Center Drum-off (do yourself a favor and check out the mind-blowing video of his winning solo on youtube!) where he was crowned best drummer in the US and awarded over $25k in prizes.

Following in the footsteps of the many bands before them to build a career on the road, the Elmwood guys look forward to the next few years getting to know the inside of a van as they criss-cross the US bringing their amazing live show to anyone and everyone who will listen. If the reaction from fans in the first year is any indication it wont be long before you are converted after seeing their high energy and musically inspiring live show.
