Don’t Miss The Mammoths At Cruiser’s
This Saturday night January 14th a great little band out of Austin TX is rolling into Junction. Nope, the show's not downtown, it's at Cruisers.
The Mammoths are a cool rock/blues outfit from deep in the heart of Texas. I've been to Austin a few times. I wandered the streets and clubs during SXSW. There is serious talent in that town. If you hang in Austin, you're the real deal.
Comprised of four members: lead singer David Kapsner; lead guitarist Michael Jekot; bass player Tyler Rush; and percussionist Tim Durand, The Mammoths have found their sweet spot in blending elements of blues and psych into their songwriting. These guys rock too. With a mix of hard-hitting guitar riffs, rock'n drums, and soulful vocals, this bunch has made a name for themselves.
Kapsner, Rush, and Jekot started the project at the tender age of 13. The trio was dispersed across Texas before reconnecting as a group in the Live Music Capital of the World aka/Austin, TX. There they found Durand, a seasoned percussionist with eighteen years of experience. After a jam session at SXSW, the four never looked back – and The Mammoths were born.
The critics agree, "The Mammoths are an up-and-coming Austin band to watch fueled by their fiery unapologetic live shows reminiscent of a young Led Zeppelin. In meeting with these guys at AMF on their future plans, this band is clearly driven playing hard and using the old school work ethic of making fans one sweaty show at a time.”-Alex Vallejo (Vallejo Music Group/Austin Music Foundation).
