The Blind Mule remains one of the best music venues in Mobile to experience some of the freshest local sounds, and on Friday, Feb. 20 patrons will have a chance to check out SNAK. Carson Taylor (guitar/vocals), Jonathan Ashley (drums/vocals) and Julian “Frankenstein” Truxillo (bass/vocals) are the brains behind the band.
With influences ranging from Frank Zappa to Parliament Funkadelic, this band has made it their mission to “uplift the original music scene.” The Azalea City has not seen a band like this in quite some time. Their original track “Summit” begins as a playful jazz number before falling into a downward spiral of funky wah-wah and intense tribal beats. “I Was Asleep” is the perfect mix of prog rock and jam.
If SNAK continues down this musical path, then locals can expect more great sounds from them.
The Dulac Smack will be coming to Mobile by way of Houma, Louisiana. This group will expose the crowd to their infectious brand of rock ‘n’ roll. The Dulac Smack has a rock sound that has been dragged through the grime and marinated in soul. The band will be playing tracks off of their release “FreE.P.”
