Mingo Fishtrap (Austin) CD Release Show with Chris Watson (Ft. Worth) at Sam's Burger Joint, Thursday May 22nd

"Mingo's fourth full-length record, the aptly-named On Time (due June 3 on Blue Corn Music) blends punchy horns and gritty Memphis grooves with N'awlins funk to create sounds steeped in both modern pop and sixties soul sensibilities, that transcend both era and genre. “My first love is classic sixties soul, funk, and Motown,” says Roger. As the band has grown, this early love affair has become a bigger part of Mingo’s musical landscape. “There was a time early on when we were really into these crazy, bombastic arrangements,” he explains. “Now it's more the song, the groove and the overall feel.” With Special Guests The Chris Watson Band
