Engaging a vast audience that includes fans of reggae, rock, hip hop and a dash of folk, B.C. five-piece Mindil Beach Markets’ debut album is nothing short of musical universality. For many bands, getting recognition and attention requires a lot of talent and an equal amount of luck – – and MBM has both, with the help from the hit Machines and the melodic Working Man Blues. The album is almost a compilation of music styles, perfectly brought together by five guys who wanted to reach audiences from all genres. The album also received ample praise from respected artists and has earned MBM credit among them. This album is sure to get you in the mood to “groove” and “jam” with your friends as you become hypnotized by this talented and funky five-piece.
