    Mingo Fishtrap in the wind

    Early show 6:30!

    Blues, soul and R&B are the most common denominators of pop music. People around the world know the songs from Chess, Stax, Motown and Muscle Shoals Records as part of the soundtrack to their lives. Mingo Fishtrap traces its beginnings to the mid 1990's when Blevins and five of the group's eight members were attending University of North Texas’ Jazz Studies program. Originally derived as a loose, after-class jam, Mingo covered songs from Otis Redding, Tower of Power, the Neville Brothers and other soul and funk masters with no particular professional ambition. They started playing some gigs and the more they played the more they were wanted back. Today they are touring nationally and we are lucky to have them.
