After a string of sold out shows, performing at the historic Red Rocks Amphitheatre and a packed summer festival schedule, BoomBox will be embarking on their full-blown ‘Dark End of the Street’ Fall Tour with dates from the East Coast to the Pacific Northwest. In the midst of flying from coast to coast, they are finding the time to work on their third release, currently using the working title “Lost Ya” with a single due out by the end of the Fall. The EP will include all new tracks and is being recorded using a blend of electronic programming and live instrumentation with Randolph on keys and Godchaux on guitar, bass and vocals and both performing drums on various tracks.

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 it 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.”
