Mingo Fishtrap is a six-piece soul-funk band that has been titillating audiences around the world for more than a decade. Based in Austin, Texas, Mingo Fishtrap performs with jocund tenacity. Singer-guitarist Roger Blevins Jr. has an airy and scratchy gospel voice that resembles Curtis Mayfield with a greater vocal range. Every one of the players demonstrates world-class chops on their instrument, and the combined vocal harmonies of Blevins, keyboardist Dane Farnsworth, and drummer Chip Vayenas are so in sync that they slide up and down together like the fingers of a blues guitar player. Mingo Fishtrap plays soulful melodies about love and perseverance that tug at the heartstrings.
Mingo Fishtrap will perform as part of Park Point's Concert in the Square with The Campbell Brothers, The English Project, Vanishing Sun, and Brendon Caroselli on Friday, June 15, at 400 Park Point Drive. 6 p.m. Free. facebook.com/ParkPointConcertintheSquare; mingofishtrap.com.
