No idea what this band name means, but this Austin, TX jumbo gumbo combo mixes soul. funk and New Orleans R&B in a nifty way. Killer horn line that hires out separately. Currently touring the South and Florida, supporting a new album (They have only a few in the near 20 years they've been together): http://www.allmusic.com/artist/mingo...p-mn0000400589
One listen and you'll be hooked:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tcwCFvYk7lk << their fans have put up a ton of tunes...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0lznDPU5WWk << ... I'm barely scratching the surface--here doing a classic N.O tune
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8pw6TAR9oNk << perf on the band bus--don't see that every day
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_cHrO2DXoR4 << James Brown medley--so nice!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GlDfc5QRZy0 << Totally rockin' the boat
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwdZKthqhF8 << not the classic tunes but it rocks, in a hip-hop way
Dern shame I couldn't find a full concert vid to see how they structure a show. Oh well. They do have a DVD on the Usual Suspect but it commands a premium price. That said, read that pro's review--it says it all: http://www.amazon.com/Live-Granada-T...ZK6/ref=sr_1_1
