Karen Ann and Mike McMann
The Nellies are an Albany, NY based hard driving, modern bluegrass band.

The Doornails - on hiatus
Featuring Ted Hennessy, Gene Lemme and Mike McMann
Venturing down from the hills east of the Hudson, this talented trio mixes the elements of old style blues and bluegrass into something new, different and slightly warped. The Doornails deliver a memorable collection of ‘tongue-in-cheek’ originals with obscure covers and a few familiar ‘warhorses’. All of their songs come flavored with some twang, a little soul and a lotta chops. The stellar musicianship of Master-Flat Picker, Mike McMann and longtime harp blaster/songwriter Ted Hennessy shine when this trio rips through a set. All the while, ‘Geno’ Lemme on the stand up bass keeps The Doornails from veering off too far off into the ditch.
