Biography

BoomBox is producer/DJ Russ Randolph and singer/songwriter/guitarist Zion Rock Godchaux. This pair of dynamic artists uses their rich musical history and their vision of music and popular culture to deliver a style of music distinctly different from anything heard or seen in music today. This signature sound and show brings live music to a new, elevated level.

BoomBox evolved through the common visualization of a pair of forward thinking artists from diverse musical backgrounds. Raised by supportive and musically inclined parents, both Godchaux and Randolph had an obsession with music at very young ages. Godchaux, who grew up with deeply embedded rock and roll roots, began playing drums at the age of two, and played guitar and wrote his own songs as a teen. During the 90s, Godchaux was a well-received touring DJ based out of the San Francisco area. Randolph began as a young drummer, but it’s what was happening behind the scenes that attracted him most. As much producers as they are musicians, it is Randolph’s understanding of soundscape and Godchaux’s knack for songwriting that keeps BoomBox resonating at higher levels.

Randolph, previously known for his production credits (Rex Foundation, Saliva, Sugarland, Los Lobos, Chuck Berry) crossed paths with Godchaux, while they were recording the Heart of Gold Band album, “At The Table,” with Godchaux’s mother, Donna Jean, formerly of the Grateful Dead. Godchaux had a heavy hand in creating the album through writing and singing as well as playing multiple instruments, while Randolph guided and engineered the album’s development. The rest, they say, is history, and together, Randolph and Godchaux’s talents tear apart previous notions of music and sound as experienced through their debut album “Visions of Backbeat.”

BoomBox originates from Muscle Shoals, Alabama, which is recognized openly by the music industry as one of the few areas that remains famous for contributions to popular music. Muscle Shoals is credited with producing some of the most revolutionary styles and creative artists in the history of Rock and Roll. The community holds a vibe that stimulates the development of an unofficially trademarked sound. BoomBox incorporates this rich history into their music, allowing for the grand entrance of a greater style and fusion of Rock and Roll, Vintage Psychedelic and House.

BoomBox’s high-energy show remains the essence of the group. Night after night the group draws people of various ages, musical interests and backgrounds, guiding them on a journey into sound and revelation. The union of Randolph and Godchaux combines a producer/DJ with a vocalist/guitarist in a real-time live format creating a genuine and fulfilling performance for the mind, body and soul.

Lyrics

Stereo

Written By: Z. Godchaux

cool breeze through the trees
hear it shakin to the ground then go
breaking up
suddenly all the dreams as your drifting out at sea start stackin up
back again lands end, maybe better just to jump than go fallin off
who's to know which way to go, there's a hole in the bucket dear Lisa
didn't mind spendin time under water while the beeze they came a buzzin
tangerine was on the scene with a burnin purple sky as a backdrop
could it be, the mystery has been hangin out hiding in a whiskey shot
who's to know wich way to go, there's a hole in the bucket dear Liza
but I heard your stereo
comin from your window
yeaaaaaaaah your stereo
lighten up these shadows

Who Killed Davey Moore?

Written By: B. Dylan

who killed davey moore
why and what's the reason for
not me said the referee,
don't you point your fingers at me.

I could have stopped it in the 8th
and maybe saved him from his fate. but the crowd would have booed I'm sure, not getting their moneys worth.

it wasn't me that made him fall.
you can't blaim me at all

chorus

not us said the angry crowd,
who's screams filled the areana loud.
too bad he had to die that night.
we just wanted to see a good fight.

we didn't mean for him to meet his death.
we just wanted to see some sweat.
it wasn't us that made him fall.
you can't blaim us at all.

chorus

not I said the boxing writer.
pounds the print on his old typwriter, saying boxing is here to stay, there's just as much danger in a football game.

fist fighting is here to stay,
just the old american way.
it wasn't me that made him fall, you can't blaim me at all.

chorus

no I said his manager,
puffin on a big cigar
its hard to say its hard to tell.
I always thought that he was well.
to bad for his wife and kids he's dead. if he was sick then he should have said.

it wasn't me that made him fall.
you can't blaim me at all.

chorus

not I said the man who's fists..
layed him low in a cloud of mist.
who came here from cubas door
where boxing ain't allowed no more.
well I hit em, I hit em.
yes its true
but that's what I get paid to do.
so don't say murder don't say kill, it was destiny it was gods will

chorus

Right Around 2

Written By: Z. Godchaux

well I'm playin along as the night awaits dawn, things start to loosen.

cannonball starts to roll from my head through the toe and out my shoe yeah.

and that's when she opened the door as the bass hit the floor, I had it comin...

and try as I may there's not much I could say, lord I felt like runnin.

cause they were right about you...
it was right around 2.....

went to say I was wrong for boomin my song in the late night hours.
but then she said with a grin, plug the microphone in, hook up some power.

now there's just one more thing, like a bird she can sing to the break of dawn yeah...

she ain't new to no scene, I step back, I let the queen go and lay it on me....

chorus
