They've a new member, Nic "Cottonseed" Clark, harmonica player who comes up from Denver. Every good blues band needs a harmonica player! Looking forward to hearing them in this reformed group. Mikey moved over to drums from rhythm guitar. From what I've heard, this new arrangement seems to be Magick!
Look for them in Casper, Saturday, November 27, playing a fundraiser for themselves to get themselves to Memphis for the big 2011 International Blues Challenge February 1-5. The boys are being sponsored by the Wyoming Blues and Jazz Society, based in Casper, and will perform in the youth showcase, sponsored by Smokin Bluz of Charlotte, NC, that will take place on Friday, February 4. They will also be competing in the quarter-finals on Wed and Thu nights. They are guaranteed to play at least twice in the competition, and then once in the Youth Showcase.
They've been written up in the Casper Star-Trib and the Cheyenne Eagle, and here's the bio that will be in the IBC catalogue:
They had some t-shirts made up to sell to help with raising funds. Contact Billie at their website if you'd like a t-shirt and to help get these boys to Memphis.
Another Kind of Magick is an exciting young blues band from Cheyenne, WY. Led by guitarist and vocalist Taylor Scott, the boys range in age from 14-17 -- bassist Louie Uribe, drummer Mike Uribe, keyboardist Evan Scott and harp player Nic Clark. Developing their sound from various styles of blues and other genres, AKM has found a niche that is original, yet true to the roots of the blues. These young men are well beyond their years in commitment and drive. Their sound, partnered with high energy and a surprising blend of soul and talent, is the foundation for the success they have experienced over the past several years. Don't miss the "Magick" these boys are bringing to Beale Street.
