12:05am, Austin, Texas based funk band MINGO FISHTRAP started their set by entering
the club from the front entrance, strapped with marching drums & horns,
like a New Orleans marching band. The first song performed was in the vein of a
Tower of Power funk jam, with some funky, bold horn playing by Steven Butts
(trumpet), Greg Wilson (baritone saxophone) , "Peanut Butter"
(saxophone), and Mark Gonzales (trombone)....also, the drumming by Peter Thomas
was tight! The next song featured a piece of Dr. John's classic "Iko
Iko" and Robert Randolph's "I Need More Love"....the guitar solo
by Roger Blevins, Jr. was great and the churning organ riffs by Aeron Riordon
were also great! Mingo Fishtrap performed a song that sounded like some Neville
Brothers stuff....it sounded like the Nevilles tune "Brother John"
and even included a full verse from the Meters song, "They All Ask'd For
You". "Catch The Bus" featured some great bass funk by Roger
Blevins, Sr. "Dirty Gritty" was one of the remaining songs that ended
the set at 1:15am.
