Biography

Formed in 2008, Elmwood has quickly become one of the country's most sought after live bands after dates with O.A.R., Blues Traveler, The Wailers, Umphrey’s Mcgee, Grace Potter, G. Love and Special Sauce, and side-stage performances with the Dave Matthews Band.

Singer and guitar player Rusty Kelly, bass player Justin Smith, sax player Derek Haight and drummer Donnie Marple all came on board after responding to craigslist ad's looking for musicians. Derek came from four 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, check out the mind-blowing video of his winning solo on youtube!) where he was crowned best drummer in the US. If the reaction from fans after seeing their high energy and musically inspiring live show is any indication, it won't be long before you are converted into an Elmwood fan.
