“Austin, Texas doesn’t have a Trombone Shorty, the Subdudes or Dirty Dozen Brass Band like New Orleans does but they do have Mingo Fishtrap, and they’re just as funky and soulful as those bands with a healthy dash of Motown tossed into their pot.” Something Else Reviews
“It’s clear that even with the revival of soul and funk music in recent years, only a few bands can match the vocal intensity Blevins offers combined with the instrumental prowess of his bandmates.” Jambands.com Texas Music Magazine calls Mingo Fishtrap “the space where melodic pop meets gritty Memphis soul, with a twist of N’awlins funk.” Like kudzu vine crisscrossing the Mississippi Delta, Mingo’s tenacious sound infiltrates the musical landscape on a sanctified mission to shake your soul. The critically acclaimed collective have found their sweet spot. Now four albums deep, Mingo has honed its sound, rubbed shoulders with musical idols, and delivered powerhouse live shows to crowds of thousands across the country and globe in the years since the band’s inception in a tiny dorm room in Denton, Texas.
