Originally formed in 2002, the Chicago-based POWER trio Audiobon gives fans in the often opposed camps of indie-label art rock and mass-market pop hooks cause to celebrate one band in one place at one time.

Audiobon credits it’s influences to the psychedelics of Cream/Pink Floyd, the stoner doom of Black Sabbath/ Kyuss, the epic presence of Led Zeppelin/KISS and the controlled chaos of Sonic Youth/ Jimi Hendrix. The band delivers a contemporary fusion of adrenaline-based rock n’ roll, honoring the sounds of old and new alike. Their unrelenting set of explosive, blues-tinged power refuses to conform to audiences’ expected pleasures—leaving them in a heightened state of ecstasy all the more.

Prepare yourselves for a unique mystical experience as David Bon casts his spell to conjure up the spirits of old and new using his musical wizardry to deliver a sonic yet emotionally charged performance. From his poet’s pen come both socially and spiritually sensitive lyrics aimed to take you on a journey of metaphysical proportions. Add choir-like sustaining guitar, cavernous harmonica and an eerie theremin and you’re in for a truly mesmerizing, transcendental musical experience.

The volcanic explosion from behind the drums is none other than Charlie Sochacki, raining down his molten lava with Bon since the beginning. Be prepared for a bare-chested fury of FIRE as he pummels and crashes down on Bon’s catchy codas sending the villagers running for their lives.

Last but not least, the “Zeus” behind the thunder, the final ingredient in the recipe of musical ambrosia, rock for the gods, is bass player, Andy Soodek. “Finally”, says Bon, “a bassist who’s not afraid to DIG IN and get his hands dirty!” And dirty he gets spilling out a heavy sludge-like vibe that’ll rattle your brain and stain your soul. ~audiobon.com
