MINGO FISHTRAP

ON TIME

2014-05-13

Mingo Fishtrap is an eight piece soul, funk and blues outfit from Austin Texas, that captivates the sounds of the Crescent City. Lead vocalist & guitarist Roger Blevins Jr. has a distinct Jon Cleary sound to his vocals and the rest of Mingo Fishtrap could be compared to the Absolute Monster Gentlemen with a hot horn section. Band leader Roger Blevins claims that much of the inspiration for Mingo Fishtrap came from listening to his fathers and Mingo's bass player old R&B recordings. It only takes one listen to this disc and you know that he not only captured this sound but expanded it into a funky New Orleans -Texas stew. This represent Ming Fishtrap's seventh full length recording and for my money they are one of the best undiscovered treasures recording today. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
