Loxodon band

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.

Mo Day and Joe Neminski met playing shows in the Michigan music scene when they started Loxodon together in 2018. Named after the scientific name for an elephant and also a popular species in DND & Magic the Gathering. In 2022, Trevor Hayse Hardin joined filling out the band on bass guitar.

Loxodon has made several releases all to positive critical acclaim. They have won several awards including the BWA for ‘Best Live Performance’ but in 2021 they won the Michigan Superstar competition which led to them recording their first full-length album, ‘American Odyssey, Pt 1’ released in June 2023.

“No one is doing what we are doing.” Mo says. “We say we are Alternative Rock but really we are just a ‘whatever we feel like we want to do’ kind of band.”

“We’ve got like a yin-yang thing going.” Joe says. “It works well.” Which is why Loxodon has endured all these years surviving a world-wide pandemic and several line up changes.

You can expect to see Loxodon playing in Michigan at venues and festivals like the Machine Shop, The Vault and many others. They regularly update their website with news, shows and even opinion blogs maintained by Mo Day.
