The Mammoths w/ The Voodoo Fix live at The Hummingbird
September 9, 2017 @ 10:00 pm - 2:00 am| $5
Comprised of four members: lead singer David Kapsner; lead guitarist Michael Jekot; bass player Tyler Rush; and percussionist Tim Durand, The Mammoths have refined their sound and found their sweet spot in blending elements of blues, rock and psychedelic music into their songwriting. With face-melting guitar licks, hard-hitting drum beats and soulful vocals, this motley crew has found their home in Austin, Texas. Kapsner, Rush and Jekot started their collective musical journey at the young age of 13. The trio was dispersed across Texas before reconnecting as a group in the Live Music Capitol of the World. After losing their drummer in the process, they stumbled upon Durand, a seasoned percussionist with eighteen years of experience. After that South by Southwest jam session, the four never looked back – and The Mammoths were born.
“The Mammoths are an up-and-coming Austin band to watch fueled by their fiery unapologetic live shows reminiscent of a young Led Zeppelin. In meeting with these guys at AMF on their future plans, this band is clearly driven on playing hard and using the old school work ethic of making fans one sweaty show at a time,” said Alex Vallejo (Vallejo Music Group/Austin Music Foundation).
The Voodoo Fix:
Formed in the south-side of Los Angeles, The Voodoo Fix are a larger than life rock band that blends genres of rock, funk, and southern soul into one seamless sound. On their new album Back For More, the band ventured into the studio with a feel-good mindset that can be heard loud and clear. Grateful to call Nashville home, The Voodoo Fix brought an element of rock and funk to the local scene with well attended shows at some of Music City’s most popular venues. Most recently, The Voodoo Fix won Lightning 100’s Music City Mayhem and is poised for success in Nashville and beyond. Live, The Voodoo Fix puts it all on the table leaving crowds ecstatic, energized, and hungry for more of the high-powered, soul-sustaining rock they provide night after night. The Voodoo Fix lives for their audience and makes music “for the express purpose of making people feel good.” According to bassist Will Halsey, “We are built from the ground up, independent to the bone. I think people appreciate our tenacity and work ethic. We give it everything we got and that comes across to our audience.” The unifying message certainly comes across in the music with lyrics like “You got to find what you love and let it kill you!” In totality, The Voodoo Fix is a band of blue collar road warriors with worldwide history and a formidable future. The Voodoo Fix is Abe Rivers (Vox-Guitar), Will Halsey (Bass-Vox), Scott Parrelli (Guitar) and Logan Todd (Drums) and they are coming to a town near you.
