Riverfront Amphitheater, Downtown Montgomery

This soul/funk band from Austin, Texas, is known for its energetic live performances. The band, founded in 2012, has released six albums and one concert video. Members list among their influences Stevie Wonder, Otis Redding, Sly and The Family Stone, Ray Charles, and James Brown, as well as the record labels Stax and Motown.

What started as a casual jam session with friends blossomed over time into an impressive eight-piece ensemble that evokes fond memories of listening to soul music at its height.

While the band's name comes from a crossroads just outside of Denton, TX, Mingo has long since extended its reach onto the national music scene, sharing stages with the likes of Trombone Shorty, Parliament, Sting, Little Feat, Earth Wind & Fire, Robert Randolph, Galactic, and MOFRO.

Audiences can always expect spontaneity and heart from a Mingo set, where the band intermingles fresh takes on songs from their extensive catalog with their twist on a few select soul standards.

David Lynch of The Austin Chronicle once wrote that "...tight 'n' punchy horns, deep rhythms, restless melodies, and emotive singing has garnered Mingo justified respect as a live powerhouse."
