About the Artists
Mighty Swell formed in 2016 when Sam Trawick and David Faulk (fiddle and guitar) met each other backstage at Disney World. They both realized they were from cousin states (Arkansas and Tennessee), and quickly became friends. One night after a couple whiskeys, they started talking about music, and soon enough began playing music together several nights a week at Disney Springs and other central Florida venues, with pianist Drew Moenning! They played country, bluegrass, and some top 40 pop tunes with a hillbilly twist!
Now, five years later, they have performed in numerous venues across Florida, Tennessee, Texas, North Carolina, and Georgia. Ted Raffetto is now their keys player and Bruno Ufret was a great addition as the drummer. Mighty Swell is the perfect band to bring your whole family, including grandma and grandpa, for some good ol’ back porch pickin’ with big stage flair!
Originally from Kinston, North Carolina, Bryan Malpass’s southern roots are evident in his soulful baritone and impassioned storytelling. His music is a hybrid of pop, southern soul, and country. He has shared the stage with legends such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, ZZ Top and Edwin McCain in notable venues such as House of Blues, Hard Rock, Alabama Theatre, Disney World, Universal Studios, and SeaWorld.
