98.3 The Penguin presents
MARC BROUSSARD with Mingo Fishtrap and Andy Suzuki
Tuesday, September 23, 2014 Doors: 6:30 PM | Show: 7:30 PM
$18 - $22
This event is 18 and over.
Marc Broussard is an artist with a unique gift of channeling the spirits of classic R&B, rock and soul into contemporary terms. This gift has been a matter of common knowledge since 2002, when Broussard released his debut album, Momentary Setback, which he recorded and released independently at age 20. It was no secret before then, going back to those lucky witnesses who heard him belt "Johnny B. Goode" onstage at age 5 while sitting in with his father's band. Throughout his life, Broussard has been tapped as a talent to watch.
Marc's song "Home" was successful at radio and catapulted him onto the national touring stage. His music has been placed in many TV shows and movies. The timeless, soulful nature of Marc's vocal lends well to Film and TV, and will continue to do so for years to come.
Marc inked a deal with Vanguard records in July 2012 and will be writing and recording this fall. He will be releasing an LP early 2013 as well as touring extensively.
With a sound dancing between gutbucket soul, N'awlins grit-down funk and horn fueled Motown pop, Mingo Fishtrap is an anomaly in the contemporary music scene. With each album, the group gravitates closer to the classic sounds that inspired them to learn their craft. What's old is new again; with young audiences flocking to see a live show that lays its musical roots more in 1969 than 2012. And that's just fine with bandleader Roger Blevins, Jr.
"Blues, soul and R&B is the common denominator of pop music. People around the world know that sound- Chess, Stax, Motown, Muscle Shoals - as part of the soundtrack to their lives. I grew up listening to Pops (Blevins' father and Mingo's bassist, Roger, Sr.) play those tunes to every age, race, color and creed. And from what we see, at least, people still need it."
Mingo Fishtrap traces its beginnings to the mid 90s when Blevins and another five of the group's members were attending the University of North Texas' Jazz Studies program. Originally derived as a loose, after-class jam, Mingo covered songs from Otis Redding, Tower of Power, the Neville Brothers and other soul and funk masters with no particular professional ambition.
"Obviously, there wasn't a lot of classic soul being played around campus," says Blevins. "People around the dorms just took to it and the ball started rolling. We were good friends playing music we loved; that's a good recipe."
More than a decade, thousands of shows and countless miles later it's that same delicious soul food that Mingo cooks up. With an inspired, high-energy live show, they engage the audience - persuade them to, sometimes literally, join the band inside the music. With a new 11 song EP, In The Meantime, featuring music from a recent show in Austin, TX as well as some new studio tracks, adding to their catalog of CD releases, Mingo captures a musical conversation, which speaks with reverence about the past and with hope about the future.
Through their time together on the road, Mingo Fishtrap has performed on bills with a wide range of artists: Sting, Blues Traveler, Ozomatli, Galactic, Delbert McClinton, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Little Feat, George Clinton & P-Funk, MOFRO and Jonny Lang among others.
Andy Suzuki & The Method are proving that there is still songwriting and soul in pop music. The band's eclectic instrumentation, featuring electric violin, djembe, and piano, pushes the boundaries of the acoustic singer-songwriter genre and has been garnering rave reviews across the country. NPR declared that "Andy Suzuki...is blessed with a velvet voice," and Time Out New York praised the band's "deadly way with melody." In 2011, WNYC Public Radio named Andy Suzuki & The Method the #1 band in Manhattan in their annual Battle Of The Boroughs competition, featuring the band in 2 show-stopping performances at WNYC's Greene Space. TheUrbanDaily.com recently featured Andy Suzuki & The Method in their 'Top 25 Artists That Need To Be Heard in 2012', asserting that the band's latest release is proof that "there is still soul in music."
Capturing the energy of Sara Bareilles' memorable piano melodies, Ben Harper's thoughtful lyricism, and Dave Matthews Band's virtuosity, Andy Suzuki & The Method deliver an unforgettable live show. They formed at Brown University in 2005 when band leader, Andy Suzuki, met hand-percussionist, Kozza Babumba, through a mutual friend. After playing the college circuit for a few years, the duo met violinist Jason Gorelick in 2008. The newly-formed trio ended up playing their first show at Brown's most popular venue, The Underground. It was immediately after this sold-out show that the band settled on the name 'Andy Suzuki & The Method,' marking their official beginning. The band has been touring the east coast ever since, building a loyal fanbase and industry buzz surrounding the release of their upcoming project.BUY TICKETS
