-Mingo Fishtrap is what you call "Bluesy, gritty musical soul food"-

Texas Music magazine calls Mingo Fishtrap “the space where melodic pop meets gritty Memphis soul, with a twist of N’awlins funk.” While attending the University of North Texas’ College of Music, Roger Blevins Jr. casually asked a few dorm mates to jam on some old soul & funk tunes. Missing that sound that he had grown up hearing, the Mississippi-native quickly found himself surrounded by an eight-piece band, complete with percussion and horn section. That first unassuming encounter lit a fire that spread to Dallas’ infamous Deep Ellum, Fort Worth’s legendary Caravan of Dreams and down the I-35 corridor to Austin, which they now call home. Mingo has carried their brand of whiskey-soaked, funky soul on the festival circuit and shared the stage with their contemporaries, Trombone Shorty, MOFRO and Galactic, as well as legends, such as Sting, Little Feat and Earth Wind & Fire. Finding what time they can between shows, Mingo is putting the finishing touches on their fourth full-length album.
