Boombox: Zion Rock Godchaux and Russ Randolph are both producers and multi-instrumentalists. They both bring diverse musical backgrounds containing a rich history from Muscle Shoals, AL. They had a vision for a unique sound and culture that only could be achieved together.
BoomBox creates a digital blend of Southern rock and roll with a vintage mix of Motown and psychedelic dance beats. Using a multi-track platform, they are free to create their sound on the fly with a rhythm that moves the people and opens eyes into Godchaux and Randolph’s way of life.
Each live show is unique to the venue and the crowd, who are the driving force of the live, rhythmic BoomBox experience. Since there is no set list, it’s about taking in what is presented to them that night, and serving the music to that group of people, for that experience. It’s about what feels right and making each note play for the better of the music.
Performing at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado was one of the summer’s highlights. The vibe of the amazing venue that is Red Rocks alongside the energy of the fans was electric and Russ and Zion felt every second of it. To capture the day, they were joined by the multi-media production company NoCoast, to document their set. The footage includes both live the performance and interviews about the allure of Red Rocks, their new direction and the forthcoming release. Check it out here.
