From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Mighty Wallop! was a short-lived Jamestown, New York-based band formed by Dennis Drew, Steve Gustafson, and Jeff Erickson of the band 10,000 Maniacs in 2001. It was quickly a sextet, which included Ryan Seekings on drums, Stan Barton on fiddle, and another guitar player. Drew and Erickson recorded around 50 songs as demos, and the band played a handful of shows as a sextet through Summer, 2001, most notably the well-received performance at The Great Blue Heron Music Festival in 2001. Shortly after that performance, the band restructured itself into a trio (Drew, Gustafson, and Erickson), performing occasionally through 2002.
