Abraham Lincoln was born in a cabin. These clanks and sounds were born in a cabin as well. If company in history is anything we are off to a good start. Hopefully we can skip the whole Civil War thing.
The Holy Ghost Electric Show started in a abandoned cabin on Cody Rogers' property a couple of years ago. Armed with nothing but a nasally voice and out-of-tune strings, they marched bravely into the bipolar arms of the local music scene of Northeast Mississippi. Playing at bars, houses, parking lots, parties, and for policemen in a park late at night, it humbly climbed out of nothing. The Holy Ghost Electric Show grew and so did its sound. Channeling influences and painting till the sounds were made their own, each member brought something all his own. The band is comprised of four core members Cody Rogers (Vocals), his brother Jake Rogers (Guitar), Austin Wheeler (Drums), and his not-brother Will Shirley (Lead Guitar).
There are also people who travel and play with them on stage. Jesse James (Trombone / Piano), Ben Ricketts (Bass / Vocals), and Andrew Horton (Violin) are at the front of this musical entourage. Together they move from town to town, hole-in-the-wall to hole-in-the-wall, happy as can be, making noise and merriment for the locals and themselves. In February of this year they released their EP called Fire On The Mountain, but despite being grateful, they felt that it didn't capture the full spectrum of their sound. They want to make a record to be proud of, that will fully capture the characters and clangs of the weird America that is The Holy Ghost Electric Show. They hope this Kickstarter will make this vision a reality in the near future. If they are funded the proper amount of money they will record in Water Valley, MS (Near Oxford, MS) this summer. The Holy Ghost Electric Show appreciates your interest and help in this project and hopes to shake your good luck hand soon.
