Mineral Hill was formed in 2017 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. We bring salty Americana, funk, honky-tonk, bossa nova, psychedelia, polka, New Mexico gothic, disco…. Enthusiastic fans have described us as “surprisingly tolerable,” “dork core” and “the house band at the human dog park.”
Lauren Addario on drums and vocals, Jonathan Mack on guitar, banjo, and vocals, John Funkhouser on keyboard, vocals, and melodica. Oh, and we all play the kazoo!
Albuquerque DJ Matthew Finch said: “For those who feel a certain amount of starvation and need more in the way of extinction, oligarchs, cheese, sasquatch, singing whales, fish and spam, we may have the band for you.”
