BoomBox at Vinyl Music Hall
A little house, a little blues, a little funk, a little rock, and a whole lot of soul blast through BoomBox.Since first emerging in 2004, founder, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Zion Rock Godchaux has been quietly seasoning andsimmering this recipe to perfection. At the same time, the Muscle Shoals, AL native stays true to what attracted countless fans in the first place.“I remain open to anything you would hear coming out of a boombox,” he explains. “There are a lot of different vibes and angles, but it still adheres to a universal rhythm. This new record(Western Voodoo)is the most musical and varied, yet it’s tightly wound in respect to that syncopation. There are only a few rules. It should be heavy groove. It should make you want to move. Overall, I’ve further developed the sound people are used to.”“You hear about different forms of magic around the world,” he goes on. “The West, in general, has its own voodoo influenced by the blues. That’s what shaped me as a musician growing up in this country. It’s hard to put in the words, but you know it when you hear it.”You hear it in everything that BoomBox has done thus far. Over the course of fivealbums, the group has become a streaming favorite with numerous tracks cracking amillion plays on Spotify. Moreover, they’ve made audiences groove everywhere from Electric ForestandHangout Music FestivaltoHigh Sierra Music FestivalandRed Rocks.In the spring of 2019 Zion enlistedhis “brother from the same mother” Kinsman MacKay to embarkon BoomBox’smost exciting configurationto date. “There’s a special kind of chemistry between two brothersplaying music together,”Zionexplains. “Since 2003we’d get together and make tracks just for fun, and realized we had a strong connection in the studio.”The two always knew theywouldwork on a project together someday,and when the doors opened up logistically in 2019, it was the natural move for the brothers to take form as BoomBox.BoomBox debuted their live horn section called “The BackBeat Brass” in the fall of 2019 to great reception. “It’s like these songs are my childrenthat I’ve been raising for the past 15 years, and with the addition of the horns it feels like seeing them again for the very first time” says Godchaux. The Backbeat Brass, led by trumpet artist Nic Chaffee of Delta Nove, will be featured on select shows in 2020, bringing a classic live horn sound filtered through an array of psychedelic sounds and elements.
