MANTRABASH featuring The Mantras
Visulite Theatre (16+ (Must have ID) - Under 16 with Parent Only)
Doors Open: 8:00 - Show Starts: 9:00
Forming only six years ago, The Mantras continue to hone their direction and precision show by show. Building a reputation as go-for-broke live act, the quintet has been playing to consistently larger and larger crowds in their home state, including a number of sold-out shows. They have been steadily building a following both regionally and nationally with music that is a high-energy collaborative of funk-rock, middle-eastern, electronica, metal; a fusion that will shake your knees and rattle your toes.
Comprised of guitarist Keith Allen, drummer Justin Loew, keyboard player Justin W. Powell, bassist Brian Tyndall, and percussionist Brent Vaughn, the band unified their musical vision in 2005 and has continued to hone their sonic direction, and precision, show by show. The Mantras continue to impress their peers, and win over new fans at every turn with their instrumental prowess, positive lyrics, and unending drive to put on an amazing show every night! This rising profile has resulted in an incredible year, seeing The Mantras and their members sharing stages in double-bills and direct support for the likes of Umphrey's McGee, Eoto, George Clinton and P-Funk, Kyle Hollingsworth Band and many more.
The Mantras now have the ability to make HQ multi-track recordings of their live shows available to the public. In 2011, The Mantras began compiling a large archive of HQ live recordings via their new mobile tracking unit, lovingly named R2. Sound engineer Matt Gordon set out to build this archive so that MantrasLive.net can be made available to the fans in early 2012. When launched, MantrasLive.com will allow fans to purchase every show recorded by the band. Copies of the night’s show are now available to fans in attendance, and for now, all recordings are being made available to the fans on the night, for FREE. The Mantras have also released a small series of select shows on archive.org, again for FREE to the fans.
