Hailing from the outskirts of East Los Angeles, The Voodoo Fix is a floor stomping combination of blues, rock, and funk that is nearly impossible to classify into one genre of music. With a heavy tour schedule that has kept them on the road since 2009, The Voodoo Fix has evolved their musical style, drawing on a range of influences including The Rolling Stones, Funkadelic, John Lee Hooker and so many more.
With shared experiences from a blown up school bus on their first tour, a month of isolation in a remote mountain cabin to record their first album, to sharing the stage with Buddy Guy, Howlin' Rain, and Toubab Krewe on their first East Coast tour, The Voodoo Fix has earned their reputation for being a hard-working rock machine with their nose on the grindstone. The eclectic musicians in the band glue together very different, but dynamic playing styles into one unforgettable experience that takes music back to its roots while expanding the borders of established 'genres' of music.
On lead vocals is Abe Rivers, a blues-drenched soul singer from San Francisco whose sunglasses reflect the awe-stricken faces captivated by the grit in his voice and the growl of his guitar. The band's funky side comes from bassist Captain Willy, known for his hypnotic rubbery grooves and tunes, bare feet and furry faced charm. Balancing the funk with rock is Los Angeles native Scott 'Mr. P.' Parrelli whose guitar style blends tones and techniques from Keith Richards, Lou Reed, and John Frusciante into one sound that has become signature to the band's style. Holding down the rhythm, is a sometimes rotating cast of pocket drummers, led by Watts native and gospel-bred, multi-instrumentalist and studio drummer, Demario Dunn as well as New York native Jeremy 'Deitz' on Beatz, who drove the band on their year long tour.
