For 40 years (and counting) Mud Bay has been electrifying audiences with their high-intensity brand of original Roots & Blues music. Weathering more than a few storms along the way, they have been hailed as true Soul Survivors–“The Band That Won’t Go Away”–much to the delight of their legions of fans throughout the world.
The five-piece band features four songwriters, three of whom are lead vocalists. Underlying this diversity is a remarkable consistency, the result of a shared vision refined over many years; distinct as the individual contributions may be, it all comes out sounding like Mud Bay.
The band features strong vocals and rhythmic elements reflecting a wide range of influences—classic Chicago Blues, Country, Cajun, Rock, Soul—all finding common ground inside well-crafted, inventive songs. Unconventional and uncompromising, Mud Bay has always taken the road less travelled, favouring innovation and interpretation over imitation and their dedication to expanding and enriching the Roots idiom they cherish has never wavered. And with four decades of dues paid, they have earned respect and praise from such blues legends as James Cotton (“Just like playing with family”) and the late great Stevie Ray Vaughn (“Mud Bay..?… More fun!”)
The men from Mud Bay are: Murphy Farrell – drums and percussion;
Dennis Ingvaldson – bass and vocals; Mud Bay Slim – Harmonica, vocals and percussion; Mark Branscombe – guitar and vocals; and Randall T Carpenter – guitar. steel guitar, mandolin and vocals.
