About Boombox:

BoomBox is Producer/Engineer/DJ/Drummer Russ Randolph and Pro- ducer/DJ/Vocalist/Guitarist Zion Rock Godchaux. This pair of dynamic artists uses their rich musical history and their vision of music and popular culture to deliver a style of music distinctly different from anything heard or seen in music today. This signature sound and show brings live music to a new, elevated level. BoomBox evolved through the common visualization of a pair of forward thinking artists from diverse musical back- grounds. Raised by supportive and musically inclined parents, both Godchaux and Randolph had an obsession with music at very young ages. Godchaux, who grew up with deeply embedded rock and roll roots, began playing drums at the age of two, and played guitar and wrote his own songs as a teen. During the 90s, Godchaux was a well- received touring DJ based out of the San Francisco area. Randolph began as a young drummer, but it’s what was happening behind the scenes that attracted him most. As much producers as they are musicians, it is Randolph’s understanding of soundscape and Godchaux’s knack for songwriting that keeps BoomBox resonating at higher levels.

As much producers as they are musicians, it is Randolph’s un- derstanding of soundscape and Godchaux’s knack for songwriting that keeps BoomBox resonating at higher levels. Randolph, previously known for his production credits (Rex Foundation, Saliva, Sugarland, Los Lobos, Chuck Berry) crossed paths with Godchaux, while they were recording the Heart of Gold Band album, “At The Table,” with God- chaux’s mother, Donna Jean, formerly of the Grateful Dead. Godchaux had a heavy hand in creating the album through writing and singing as well as playing multiple in- struments, while Randolph guided and engineered the album’s development. The rest, they say, is history, and together, Randolph and Godchaux’s talents tear apart previous notions of music and sound as experienced through their debut album “Visions of Back- beat.” BoomBox originates from Muscle Shoals, Alabama, which is recognized openly by the music industry as one of the few areas that remains famous for contributions to popular music. Muscle Shoals is credited with producing some of the most revolutionary styles and creative artists in the history of Rock and Roll. The community holds a vibe that stimulates the development of an unofficially trademarked sound. BoomBox incor- porates this rich history into their music, allowing for the grand entrance of a greater style and fusion of Rock and Roll, Vintage Psychedelic and House. BoomBox’s high- energy show remains the essence of the group. Night after night the group draws peo- ple of various ages, musical interests and backgrounds, guiding them on a journey into sound and revelation. The DJ/singer-songwriter/Producer duo of Randolph and God- chaux has continued to amass legions of loyal fans through their fresh blend of decades of music history and popular culture.

The union of Randolph and Godchaux combines a producer/DJ with a vocalist/guitarist in a real-time live format creating a genuine and fulfilling performance for the mind, body and soul.

ZION

Zion Rock Godchaux was raised in Marin County, in the San Francisco Bay area. The son of Keith & Donna Godchaux of “The Grateful Dead,” Zion was born with music in his blood. By age two his instinct for rhythm was obvious and by six he was playing a spe- cial segment with his mother in “Heart of Gold Band” performances. Zion is a singer, songwriter, producer, dj, drummer and guitar player originating from the seemingly op- posite influences of Dylan, Hendrix, Ravi Shankar, the Dead and various reggae heavy- weights to the 70’s underground N.Y. funk, soul and disco scenes. Rather than throw one influence out for the other, Zion embraced both ends of the spectrum, and brought it out in his own style music.
