Georgia-bred improvisational-dance, funk masters Voodoo Visionary will be bringing the party to The Lariat, starting at 9:30 p.m. this Saturday, September 28. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased online in advance or at The Lariat.
Hailing from the musical hub of Atlanta, Georgia, Voodoo Visionary have been peddling their distinct brand of improvisational dance music they call “psychofunk” for over a decade.
Over the past 11 years, Scott MacDonald (vocals), Trent Gilson (bass), Jose Rivera (percussion), Mac Schmitz (drums), Mike Wilson (guitar), and Marcus White (keys) have developed a unique brand influenced by the likes of Parliament Funkadelic, The Meters, Herbie Hancock and improvisational masters The Grateful Dead. The exceptional chemistry in Voodoo Visionary allows the band to explore experimental musical territories with ease and expertise. Funky, yet innovative, Voodoo Visionary delivers an unforgettably funky dance party supported by creative, feel-good songwriting.
Voodoo Visionary released their debut album “Spirit of the Groove” In March 2015, and followed it with “Off The Ground” in February 2017. Rigorous veterans of the road, Voodoo Visionary has supported the likes of Zach Deputy, TAUK, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, and Col. Bruce Hampton with their distinct brand of funk. In 2015, Voodoo Visionary made their music festival debut at Counterpoint and have since graced major national music festivals like Sweetwater 420 Fest, Suwannee Hulaween, Imagine Festival, Backwoods Music Festival, and many more.
Relix Magazine referred to Voodoo Visionary as “a mix of psychedelic southern funk, Michigan soul, and Gulf Coast flavor.”
As their star rapidly rises, Voodoo Visionary continues to push the envelope of what improvisational funk can achieve while bringing an unmistakably Southern flare that is “guaranteed to put the ‘oogie in your boogie”, according to the band’s official website.
