The Prophets of the Dawn of Correction
Kevin, the business mind, with his boss bass is both bass and boss. Laying the groundwork with bottle-bottom bass the main Mayan is a rare breed, a soft spoken man with the prompt of command in his voice. When Kevin asks somebody to do something in his amiable soft-spoken way people do it. To do otherwise might hurt his feelings. Low key, high power.
Ray , Lead singer and rhythm guitar Ray's the man with the plan, a stonecutter roughing out the blocks with his rhythm guitar. The tortured artist writes most of their material but each adds of his talent and of himself, running Ray's original ideas through the mill of four distinct personalities. Ray's admirable goal is to write songs that do not repeat. Go to it Ray! We'd love to hear them.
Brian "The Mayan" , lovable, warm-handed craftsman, affable and precise as a jeweler or sculptor, Brian is the finisher smoothing and polishing the megaliths. His original lead guitar laces the layers together with psychedelic threads of gold and silver stitching the fabric of space/time, embroidering a musical lame. Brian could pick licks for the gods.
The irrepressible Chuck , serious about life, personable Chuck, the guy every body wants to know, is not afraid to fail but hates losing. Dependable, the steady workman tattooing the congas and other percussion, polishing this towering edifice of sound, of mind, of sound mind, with timed touches of hide. Chuck brightens the gigs with candles and incense as well, he is what Mayan means.
Sometimes 1 + 1 = 2+
The Mayan Factor, a combo of unique personalities,
talents and tastes that compliment and augment forging a music greater than the sum of its parts. New music for the new millennium, intricately wrought and dedicated to the proposition that those who are "good" are soon gone. Braving a loathsome wind atop the Ziggurat of Love shouting unto the world: "Yes, there is another way! There is another way! There is another way!"
The Mayan Factor.
