Mo Lowda began with 3 high school kids. Those kids all ended up at the same college in Philadelphia, PA where other kids wanted them to play at their basement parties all the time. So, they did. All the time. They are no longer kids. Two full-length albums (2013, 2018) and an EP (2016) later, Mo Lowda & the Humble now average 100+ tour dates a year, nationally and internationally, including festivals like Firefly, Peach Fest, Mountain jam, and more. When they are not on stage, they are laughing. Sometimes even when they are on stage, they are laughing. The band is slated to release their third full-length in early 2020.
The internet describes Okey Dokey as "psychedelic doo wop", but if you ask the Nashville duo themselves, they are "just a couple of wizards born to ride". Visual artist Aaron Martin & guitarist Johny Fisher combine the best of psych & soul to send the listener on a nostalgia-laced, dreamland trip.
Coming off their latest record “Tell All Your Friend”, the band released a collaborative EP entitled “Curio Cabinet I” featuring friends of the duo like Dent May, Liz Cooper, Arlie, and Devon Gilfillian. Okey Dokey is currently recording their third LP and playing headlining shows across the US.
Beginning in Austin, TX, in the heart of their middle school days, David Kapsner (lead vocals/guitar/piano), Michael Jekot (lead guitar/vocals), and Tyler Rush (bass/vocals) came together to transcend the barrier of blues-rock into funky psych-soul through their various music ventures. Bringing the audacious and wonderfully talented Tim Durand (drums/vocals) into the picture has recently solidified the band with a roaring sound and strength to complement their vibe. Dedication to their music has evolved The Mammoths from garage rock to sophisticated blues-funk, and constant experimentation has allowed each member of the group to always stay true to their roots. Jekot, self-described as playing in the “grunge-endrix” style, notes that Kapsner’s soul-vocals, Durand’s pure metal, and Tyler’s deep, groovy funk stand out in the realm of rock, drawing influence from all over to create a sound that is entirely new, yet curiously familiar.
"The Mammoths are an up-and-coming Austin band to watch fueled by their fiery unapologetic live shows reminiscent of a young Led Zeppelin. In meeting with these guys at AMF on their future plans, this band is clearly driven on playing hard and using the old school work ethic of making fans one sweaty show at a time.” - Alex Vallejo (Vallejo Music Group/Austin Music Foundation).
"Crisp and catchy songwriting and performances make The Mammoths new recordings jump through the speakers." - Kevin Wommack (Playing in Traffic Records)
