“One band leading the rock revival is…Flint-special Loxodon (pronounced Locks-o-don). Imagine the innovative, thumping buzz of The White Stripes, the hard rock science of the Black Keys, the rock jazz stylings of Steely Dan and the raucous funk energy of Sly & The Family Stone delivered in what can only be described as a stampede of sound.”
– My City Magazine
Founded in 2018, Loxodon has quickly gained a foothold in the thriving Midwest music scene by providing their brand of old-is-new, new-is-no-limits rock fusion to audiences who have been starving for a hero to fill a void in an otherwise bleak cookie cutter musical landscape. With influences drawn from the well of vibrant and technical prog rockers such as Rush to the often more sentimental leanings of The Beatles to the driving hooks and harmonies of Queen, the band maintains a sound that is somehow familiar, yet fresh and exciting to every audience they perform for.
Singer/guitarist Chris Day states, “We always have an eye on experimentation and what serves each song the best musically or creatively. Luckily, our tastes are so diverse that we have a lot of inspiration to learn from. Loxodon isn’t a band that stays still musically for very long.” Rounding out the remainder of Loxodon’s lineup is Joe Neminski on drums, bassist Johnny Mason, and keyboardist Jonathan Sadler. All four members are seasoned veterans in their respective music communities with the scars to prove it and the experience to back it up. Through their passion for the music as well as their bond with each other as a thriving bombastic musical juggernaut, Loxodon is poised to become the next reference point for other bands walking in their heavy footprints.
