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 & roll made to connect people 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. “It’s all natural, and it’s all real time, and that’s why it’s Rock ‘n’ Roll”, says Godchaux. 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. 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.”
