Richmond based rockers Katana Mantra hove been a force on the music scene since its inception in 2001. Over the years the band has seen members come and go, but has always persevered and continued to move forward. The present lineup consists of Wildman Brian “Sideshow” Lytle on vocals, shred-virtuoso Joey Farish on lead guitar, the all versatile Adam Hamil on guitar and keys, Jon “the Kid” Cauble on bass, and shedding the wood behind the is kit is Bubba Farmer. The band draws from a wide range of influences to create their original rock sound. KM produced & released its first full length CD in the fall of 2005 which has sold moderately despite any major marketing. Other notable accomplishments include working with Memphis, TN talent giants Heartbeat Productions, Grand prize winners of Rockitz Regional battle of the bands on two different occasions, selected over numerous bands by Cox Radio station 96.5 to be part of a 3 band showcase in 2007. 2008 will see the band release a 3 song EP recorded at Sunrise Studio in Richmond, VA.
