CEG & Nolafunk Present
A Night of Funk! With Voodoo Visionary and Waiting On Mongo & special DJ set by PK.KID!
Hailing from the Dirty South musical mecca of Atlanta, GA, Voodoo Visionary’s improvisational funk dance music balances a tight, grooving rhythm section with soulful organ, funky clavinet, singing synthesizers, and masterful guitar licks to create a sound the group calls psychofunk. Influenced by a wide array of artists from Parliament Funkadelic and the Meters to the Grateful Dead and Allman Brothers Band to Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock, Voodoo Visionary has a uniquely blended sound that’s guaranteed to put the 'oogie in yo boogie.
The band consists of Dennis Dowd (keys), Jimmy Lynch (bass), Scott MacDonald (vocals), Jose Rivera (percussion) Mac Schmitz (drums), and Mike Wilson (guitar) and features Martin Anderson (saxophone) and Ben Otieno (trumpet) known as the Side Chick Horns. Over the past 11 years, these players have built a unique chemistry that allows for exceptional improvisation during live shows and relaxed and creative songwriting sessions.
Voodoo Visionary released their debut album, Spirit of the Groove in March 2015 and their sophomore album Off The Ground in February 2017. While playing across the country over the last several years, the band has shared the stage with Col. Bruce Hampton, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe (featuring Jimmy Herring), TAUK, DJ Logic, Zach Deputy, Earphunk, Roosevelt Collier, Jerry Joseph, The Main Squeeze, Futurebirds and more. In May 2015, they made their major festival debut at Counterpoint Music Festival near Rome, GA. Since then, they have excelled further into the national music scene with festival performances at Suwannee Hulaween, Sweetwater 420 Fest, Imagine Festival, Backwoods Music Festival, Funk Fest, Purple Hatters Ball, Great Outdoors Jam, and Hookahville.
