Hazmat Modine

A sonic melting pot merging all genres into one!

Hazmat Modine, a unique blues/jazz/funk ensemble, is deep in command of their self-created idiom — swimming in international waters but never far from the American coast.

LPCA Member Presale: Tuesday, September 27 at 10 am.

Tickets available to the general public: Wednesday, September 28 at 10 am.

Hazmat Modine has toured the world for over fifteen years. From Borneo to British Columbia, China to India, Brazil to New Zealand, throughout Europe and into Siberia. The band distills American music into an essence from its myriad forms: Blues, country, R&B, rock-n-roll, jazz, gospel, world music, soul, roots... Yet it adds to this mixture something raw and mysterious that feels at once familiar and new.

Their new collection of original material finds Hazmat deep in command of their self-created idiom — swimming in international waters but never far from the American coast. Malian riffs infuse with Mississippi mud and Tin Pan Alley, stretching the band’s roots aesthetic to include notes of hibiscus and the buzz of mosquitos. There are songs about death, striving, hoarding, time, and the march of dementia. Soaring horns and wailing harmonica are joined by the clang of modern India and the murmur of China, a distillation of Hazmat Modine’s travels through time, place, and sound. They weave lyrics that reflect on the times and troubles of the world we currently live in.
