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 first met at the Flint Crepe Company and started Loxodon after playing shows in the Michigan music scene. Named after the scientific name for an elephant and also a popular species in DND & Magic the Gathering. Trevor Hayse Hardin filled out the band on bass guitar. No one remembers how or when Trevor joined.  

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 only full-length album, ‘American Odyssey, Pt 1’ released in June 2023.
