ABOUT THE PERFORMER

Mingo Fishtrap

Texas Music Magazine calls Mingo Fishtrap “”the space where melodic pop meets gritty Memphis soul, with a twist of N’awlins funk.”” Like kudzoo vine crisscrossing the Mississippi Delta, Mingo’s tenacious sound infiltrates the musical landscape on a sanctified mission to shake your soul.

The critically acclaimed collective have found their sweet spot. Now four albums deep, Mingo has honed its sound, rubbed shoulders with musical idols, and delivered powerhouse live shows to crowds of thousands across the country and globe in the years since the band’s inception in a tiny dorm room in Denton, Texas.

Mingo’s fourth full-length record, the aptly-named On Time blends punchy horns and gritty grooves with greasy funk to create sounds steeped in both modern pop and sixties soul sensibilities, that transcend both era and genre. “My first love is classic sixties soul, funk, and Motown,” says Roger. As the band has grown, this early love affair has become a bigger part of Mingo’s musical landscape.

“It’s clear that even with the revival of soul and funk music in recent years, only a few bands can match the vocal intensity Blevins offers combined with the instrumental prowess of his bandmates.” – jambands.com

2020 Rochester Lilac Festival announcement

As of today, we are being advised by the Monroe County Health Department that we will be unable to hold the 2020 Rochester Lilac Festival during the originally planned timeframe of May 8th -17th. As you can imagine, this is painful for all of us. However, we are hopeful and optimistic that we will be able to reschedule.

As time progresses, and more information is known, we’ll be letting you, our valued Festival participants and attendees know if, and when we plan to reschedule the Festival.

Hang in there and stay healthy.
