MST is a 6-piece multi-genre group based out of Bozeman, MT. Their unique sound consists of 70s rock with undertones of surf/psychedelic rock and jam styles. The young high-energy band consists of Alyssa Mandich (vocals), Gabby Rizzo (guitar), Trafford Turkiewicz (guitar), Aiden Doherty (keys), Ryan Totman (bass), and Eliot DeFrancesco-Evans (drums). Their enthusiasm is bound to bring great spirits and grooving times!
The Whags have been hard at work, making up for over a year of lost time together in the pandemic. In 2022 the Seattle band has embarked on two west coast tours and recorded their debut full length album with Adam Burd (Fleet Foxes, The Dip, Car Seat Headrest) at Avast Studios, filling large venue shows while keeping the spirit alive at smaller community events. Since releasing Smile Maker EP in 2019, one that received airplay on local independent radio giant KEXP and beyond, the band has gathered around them a robust and genial show family. Their open-ended approach to Americana, funk, and sunshine pop provides a musical tether for any concert goer. The band layers vocal-driven pop harmonies, anthemic guitar riffs, and jazz/funk rhythms that conjure swirly ballads amidst groove-heavy jams. On April 7 the band released their full-length album “Routine for Now”.
