Electric Mud was started by brothers Marc and Matty in Staten Island, NY back in 2008. Soon after the band was formed, both brothers left New York to join the Navy in 2010, putting their musical aspirations on hold. In the military, and stationed in San Diego, they met Colton and Phil and started jamming on their off time. The drive to make music became stronger than ever. All four members decided to complete their time in the service and pursue music full time.
With an old school vibe that clearly represents the golden era of rock’n’roll, they’re bringing back the classic sounds of the 60s and 70s. The band tries to pay homage to every era of rock’n’roll roots, even back to the beginning of American blues, early country and Motown. Bands and artists like The Rolling Stones, Otis Redding, Tom Petty and Waylon Jennings can be heard in their sound. Catchy songwriting with strong hooks, paired with a tenacious live sound, have given Electric Mud a reputation to pay attention to. If you’re looking to find tunes for your next road trip, or trying to catch a real rock’n’roll show out on town, Electric Mud is exactly what your looking for.
Special Guest 5 Dead X’s
Chris Kinnear, (formerly of Reckless Abandon and The Fancy Lads) formed “5 Dead X’s” in late 2018, with Jason Liebman, Chris Crosby, and Joe Pess. They will release a new CD later this year. Their Americana sound is reminiscent of Wilco, Jayhawks, Old 97s, and Neil Young. Before forming this band, the individual members have played internationally, and also locally.
