The Whomping Willows is a Wizard Rock band from Providence, Rhode Island. In the muggle world however, he is known as Matt Maggiacomo, the front man of the band, The Whomping Willows. Realizing the effect wizard rock had on the world, Matt decided to write and record music based on scenes in the life of the aggressive tree. As a result, he released The Whomping Willow’s self-titled debut album in 2006. His two newest CDs are entitled Welcome to the House of Awesome and III. The Whomping Willows are also featured artists on many Wizard Rock compilation albums.
