Mean Black Mamba create raw, foot-stomping music rooted in gritty, hard hitting tunes. Their own brand of blues’n’roll is a gumbo of juke-joint culture and African rhythms to create trance-like dance music. Guitarist and singer, Guy Collins, with drummer extraordinaire, James van Minnen, are swamp-gospel prophets in the temple of cosmic delta boogie.
The opening gig is performed by Andy Lund, a born musician, his style is characterised by alternative-folk and country-inspired sound. His vocals are honest and riveting. Andy formed the band Andy Lund & the Mission Men, releasing two albums between 2008 and 2012.
