Zony Mash

Zony Mash made its debut in late 1995 as the unofficial house band at the OK Hotel in Seattle, where the guys honed their chops with months of weekly gigs. In Zony Mash you'll hear a wide variety of influences, including sixties-style psychedelic rock, the blues and definitely some sounds that could only be described as being from outer space. All of this was amalgamated into something completely original. Although named after a tune by The Meters, Zony Mash was nevertheless not a Meters tribute band. Although Zony Mash drew heavy inspiration from the past, they never succumbed to derivative nostalgia. Imagine instead a uniquely modern, unpredictable take on a Fillmore-era groove and a bandleader bent on pushing his music in new directions. In the end though, it's Wayne's unique harmonic sense and songwriting that set Zony Mash apart.
