Voodoo Visionary

Voodoo Visionary hails from the dirty south musical mecca of Atlanta. Their improvisational funk dance music delicately balances a tight rhythm section featuring deep grooving bass and funky drum beats with dexterous keys and masterful guitar licks to create a sound the group calls psychofunk. Influenced by a wide array of artists such as Parliament Funkadelic, the Grateful Dead, Talking Heads, and Medeski Martin and Wood, Voodoo Visionary has a uniquely blended sound that’s guaranteed to put the 'oogie in yo boogie.

The band is made up of Dennis Dowd (keys), Jimmy Lynch (bass), Scott MacDonald (vocals), Mac Schmitz (drums), and Mike Wilson (guitar). Wilson, Schmitz and Lynch have been playing together for over 8 years, during which time they built a unique chemistry that allows for exceptional improvisation during live shows. MacDonald and Dowd finalized the band's line up, serving as the rug that really ties the room together, and the group has since taken off around the Atlanta music scene.

Voodoo Visionary released their debut album, Spirit of the Groove in March 2015. Over the past two years, while playing across the southeast, the band has shared the stage with acts such as Col. Bruce Hampton, Zach Deputy, Earphunk, Roosevelt Collier, Jerry Joseph, and Futurebirds. The band performed at the RAW Artists Atlanta showcase in September 2014 at Terminal West, made a live radio and TV appearance on WUGA’s It’s Friday program, and in May 2015 made their major festival debut at Counterpoint Music Festival near Rome, GA.


I.R.E. (Intello Rhythm Eclectic) brings a Progressive World sound out of Atlanta, Georgia. Fusing an eclectic array of Reggae, Rock, and Funk; each used in a unique and original way, mixed with influential song writing and unstoppable energy. I.R.E. is quickly becoming everyones new favorite band.

I.R.E. is a band based out of Atlanta, Ga. With members from Ohio, North Carolina, and Georgia. I.R.E. has been together since 2009 and released their first album, Touch It in 2012. There is so much raw talent and many different styles being thrown into the equation that they touch it on many different levels.
