Our Headliners and Featured Acts

Puss N Bootspuss-n-boots

Puss N Boots (Sasha Dobson, Norah Jones, and Catherine Popper) are at their core, three women who share a love for music. Whether it’s Country, Americana or just plain old hard drivin’ Rockabilly, through their mutual favorite covers or original tunes, this all girl power trio delivers by singing their tails off and making people laugh like crazy. Puss n Boots will be releasing their first album with Blue Note this July.

Puss N Boots will bring Maplewoodstock 2014 to a close with a Sunday night set starting at 8 pm.

Robert Randolph and The Family Band

Robert Randolph and The Family Band first gained attention with the release of the album Live at the Wetlands in 2002.  The band followed with 3 studio recordings of the next 8 years which, together with tireless touring and unforgettable performances at randolphsuch festivals as Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, and the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, won them an expanding and passionate fan base.  Randolph’s unprecedented prowess on his instrument garnered him a spot on Rolling Stone’s “100 Greatest Guitarist of All Time” list, and also attracted the attention of such giants as Eric Clapton and Carlos Santana, who have collaborated with him on stage and in the studio.

The band’s latest album (Lickety Split) features his distinctive mix of rock, funk, and rhythm & blues.  Randolph, of Irvington, NJ, has traveled the world with his music, and now brings it back to Maplewood this summer.

Robert Randolph and the Family Band will headline Day 1 of Maplewoodstock 2014, as they leave everybody dancing on Saturday night.

Midón has collaborated with such heroes as Herbie Hancock and Stevie Wonder, along with contributing to recordings by Jason Mraz, Queen Latifah and Snoop Dogg and the soundtrack to Spike Lee’s She Hate Me.

NOTE:  Schedule subject to change.  If weather interrupts the schedule we pick up the schedule as per the "clock."  In other words, if it pours rain from 4 pm to 5:45, we pick up the schedule with whatever band is scheduled to be playing at 5:45.  However, we have a covered stage, so light or moderate rain won't stop us. Last minute updates to the schedule (due to weather or other factors) will be announced in real-time on our Twitter channel -- twitter.com/maplewoodstock

Pray for sun.  ;-)
