It’s been quite the rollercoaster ride, but the eight members of Austin’s criticallyacclaimed soul collective Mingo Fishtrap have found their sweet spot. Now four albums deep, the eight-piece outfit has honed its sound, rubbed shoulders with musical idols, and delivered powerhouse live shows to crowds of thousands in the years since the band’s inception in a tiny dorm room in Denton, Texas. Don't miss them back on stage at the Leaf!!
“If what James Brown supposedly said was true – ‘the one thing that can solve most of our problems is dancing’ – then Mingo Fishtrap has plenty of business to take care of in our nation’s capital.” Zoe Polluck – Writer, Washington City Paper
“…tight ‘n’ punchy horns, deep rhythms, restless melodies, and emotive singing has garnered Mingo justified respect as a live powerhouse.” David Lynch, Austin Chronicle
