Rollins Band Offshoot Mack Going Soph
Joining former Rollins Band drummer Jason Mackenroth in Mack's lineup are bassist Michael "MK" Kelly (Magnified) and guitarist Billy O'Malley (Seka, Stripmind, Jocobono). Between albums, Mackenroth moved from Los Angeles to Las Vegas and joined Blue Man Group's show at the Venetian, where Kelly and O'Malley also serve as band musicians.
Mack will play a record release party at Count's Vamp'd in Las Vegas on Thursday, October 13th. A U.S. tour will be announced shortly. For the live shows, Blas Elias (Slaughter), who also plays in Blue Man Group's Las Vegas production, will play drums, enabling Mackenroth to step out front on lead vocals.
Today Mack launched a Kickstarter.com campaign to help finance the vinyl edition of Pay To Play and shoot the video for "Ride The Sky." Backers can receive such perks as a drum lesson with Mackenroth (in person or via Skype), a stint as an extra in the video, complete with styling by a top Vegas hairdresser, or the chance to be the set photographer, with the resulting photos posted on the band's Facebook page. Fans can check out all the options here.
