The Floorboards are an Appalachian roots rock ensemble hailing from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.
The band marries rock & roll and country roots with the sights and sounds of southern mountain towns. Jake and Rob shake the leaves from the trees. Bob wails like a steam whistle cutting through the pines. Chris coaxes stringed cries from the hills and hollers. Matt tells the story.
The Floorboards have quickly become a staple in the roots music scene and are branching out with purpose. The band has shared the stage with old school pioneers and genre shaping newcomers alike. Acts such as Dwight Yoakam, Trampled By Turtles, Yarn, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Royal Southern Brotherhood, Laura Reed, Los Colognes, and many more.
“If you’re an alt-country kind of a person, do yourself a favor and check this crew out. Even if you’re not into all of that, I’m betting you’ll turn into a head-bobber even if you don’t start cutting a rug.” – Jeremy Sanchez HomeGrown Music Network
