BoomBox consists of two versatile producers, DJs, songwriters, multi-instrumentalists and longtime friends Russ Randolph and Zion Rock Godchaux. Together they develop an electronic blend of vintage Rock and Blues made to move dance floors while incorporating their signature Backbeat, Psychedelia and Funky House sounds. Applying a multi-track platform, they are free to create their hybrid style on the fly with a rhythm that moves fans and opens them up to Godchaux and Randolph's overall vision. Derived from the rich musical history of Muscle Shoals, AL, to the psychedelic rock and underground electronic scenes of the west coast, their unique approach can only be achieved by the blending of sound and culture.
BoomBox's first release, Visions of Backbeat, contained the breakout song "Stereo" that built the foundation for their rapidly growing fan base. After years of steady touring and honing their sound, they released their sophomore effort, downriverelectric, and was hailed by critics as a progressive follow up effort. BoomBox are continuously working on new releases, using a blend of programming and live instrumentation with both members on drums, Randolph on keys, and Godchaux on guitar, bass and vocals.
Each live show is unique to the venue and the crowd, who are the driving force of the rhythmic BoomBox experience. "It's all natural, it's all in real time, and that's why it's Rock 'n' Roll", says Godchaux. Traditional set lists are never created prior to shows, instead, BoomBox chooses the music based on the atmosphere, to create a one-of-a-kind experience for fans. Randolph adds, "We just want to go out with no game plan. That way it's fresh for us, and we can follow the energy of the crowd. We're down to get down, and we hope that people are down with us."
Signal Path began in 2001 in the Mountains of Montana where they forged a unique brand of electronic dance music by splicing technology with raw instrumentalism. Now thriving in one of the most explosive electronic scenes in the country, the Denver based band creates powerful studio work and wildly popular live shows. Playing to packed crowds throughout the US, Signal Path's unique live experience is as beautiful as it is intense as they bend guitars, basses, drums, and synths around a core of unrelenting rhythm and massive low end production.
