About Life's Worth Livin' Biography The Mantras' music is a high-energy collaborative of funk-rock, electronica, metal, and fusion that will shake your knees and rattle your toes.
Comprised of guitarist Keith Allen, drummer Justin Loew, keyboard player Justin W. Powell, bassist Brian Tyndall and percussionist Brent Vaughn; the band unified their musical vision in 2005 and has continued to hone their sonic direction and precision show by show. The Mantras continue to impress their peers and win over new fans at every turn with their instrumental prowess, solid lyrics, and unending drive to put on an amazing show every night!
Hailing from Greensboro, North Carolina, the band has been playing to ever-increasing sold out crowds in their home state during 2011, and are experiencing rapid growth into new markets throughout the South, Midwest and North East. In 2011 alone, The Mantras and their members have shared the stage in double-bills and direct support with Umphrey's McGee, Eoto, George Clinton and P-Funk, Kyle Hollingsworth Band, Papadosio, The Werks, Perpetual Groove, Zoogma, Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band, Count M'Butu, and many more.
The Mantras now have the ability to make HQ mutli-track recordings of their live shows available to the public. In 2011 The Mantras began compiling a large archive of HQ live recordings via their new mobile tracking unit, lovingly named R2. Sound engineer Matt Gordon set out to build this archive so that all Mantras Live recordings can be made available to the fans in early 2012. When launched fans will be able to purchase every show recorded by the band from Livedownloads.com. Copies of the night's show are now available to fans in attendance and for now all recordings are being made available to the fans on the night for FREE.
The Mantras, together with Stanlee Ventures of the famous Camp Barefoot Music and Arts Festival, are proud to present MANTRABASH 2012 June 21st-23rd, at the breathtaking High Country Motorcycle Camp in Ferguson, NC.
