Mungion with guests Earthmother
Since their inception in Spring of 2015, Mungion (pronounced mung-yin) has quickly made a name for themselves as one of the rising stars of the jam scene. Composed of Justin Reckamp (guitar/vocals), Joe Re (keyboards/vocals), Sean Carolan (bass/vocals) and Matt Kellen (drums/vocals), the Chicago-based four-piece is rooted in their ambitious compositions and improvisational abilities, offering up a raucous and joyous sound that’s guaranteed to have you smiling ear to ear and leave you wanting more.
Known for their whimsical songs, goofy stage antics, and undeniably explosive improvisations, Mungion’s jubilance is a natural extension of its members. Underlying the band’s quirky nature is their virtuosic musical abilities. This inherent talent and playfulness emboldens the group to be fearless in the studio and on stage, making for live performances that are infectiously lighthearted, refreshingly energetic, and deeply sincere.
With sonically rich and vibrant compositions, the band’s critically acclaimed debut album, 2016’s ‘Scary Blankets’, proves that the sky’s the limit for Mungion. You can catch them on tour at venues nationwide or at high-profile music festivals, such as Suwannee Hulaween, Summer Camp, and The Peach Music Festival.
Earthmother was formed under the philosophy of delivering an unforgettable and unique live experience. They met in Boston while attending Berklee College of Music and soon discovered that they had a shared love for improvised music. While most of their influences come from 60’s and 70’s rock, each member is influenced by an array of different styles, from blues to progressive rock to jazz. They use this as an advantage to express their music in as many different ways as possible, while keeping their music dripping with psychedelia.
