Mingo Fishtrap w/ Moonfish2 | Free Show

It’s been quite the roller-coaster ride, but the eight members of Austin’s critically-acclaimed soul collective Mingo Fishtrap have found their sweet spot. Now four albums deep, the eight-piece outfit has honed its sound, rubbed shoulders with musical idols, and delivered powerhouse live shows to crowds of thousands in the years since the band’s inception in a tiny dorm room in Denton, Texas. Mingo’s fourth full-length record, the aptly-named On Time (out June 3 on Blue Corn Music) blends punchy horns and gritty Memphis grooves with New Orleans funk to create sounds steeped in both modern pop and sixties soul sensibilities, that transcend both era and genre. Audiences can always expect spontaneity and heart from a Mingo set, where the band intermingles fresh takes on songs from their extensive catalog with their twist on a few select soul standards. Mississippi native Roger first formed Mingo while studying music at the University of North Texas in Denton, Texas. What started as a casual jam session with friends blossomed over time into an impressive eight-piece ensemble that evoked fond memories of listening to soul music as a kid. While the band’s name comes from a crossroads just outside of Denton, Mingo has long since extended its reach onto the national music scene, sharing stages with the likes of Trombone Shorty, Parliament, Sting, Little Feat, Earth Wind & Fire, Robert Randolph, Galactic, and MOFRO.
