Floodwood is Al Schnier’s new bluegrass side project with moe’s drummer, Vinnie Amico, plus members of Wooden Spoon. The band is from the “The Leatherstocking Region” of upstate New York and veteran musicians who have performed on stages around the world for the last 20 years. They are breathing fresh life into timeless acoustic music & play with the dexterity & chops of seasoned pros. Al Schnier & Vinnie Amico, not only play together in moe. (http://moe.org) one of the premier touring bands in the country, but they’ve also spent over 10 years recording & touring with the Americana group Al & The Transamericans. Likewise, Jay Barady spent over 10 years recording & touring with the Bluegrass group Wooden Spoon from Taos, until returning to his hometown in central, NY. Nick Piccinni is a classically trained violinist, who learned his bluegrass chops the old fashioned way – in festival picking circles. He’s an award winning banjo player & fiddler in high demand on the NY bluegrass circuit. Bass player, Zachary Fleitz is an avant-garde bassist, not unlike Wooten & Oteil, & has even developed his own patent pending midi instrument – “the midi wing chun dummy”.
