Mother Load Band

Mother Lode was formed in Colorado in 2003. Mark Simpson on Bass & Vocals is the only remaining band member of the original lineup … as the band has been evolving on and off stages across the front range ever since. Always a performance powerhouse, Mother Lode is known for its signature blend of awesome harmonies and subtle textures over driving rhythms.

Defining the Mother Lode sound is a challenge. “Acoustic Rock” might be a good place to start, but the stigma often attached to that label is far from the Mother Lode experience, which is closer to the “ROCK” side of that scenario. And although they do play a wide variety of “Classic Rock” songs, their choice of classics strays far from the everyday me-too standards: Calls for Van Morrison will yield an evocative “Into the Mystic” rather than the overplayed “Brown Eyed Girl.” Folks wanting to dance to the Beatles will hear a spirited “Eight Days a Week” or “Help” over the less challenging “Twist and Shout.” Even still, the band’s repertoire embraces more recent acts like Stone Temple Pilots, John Mayer, Collective Soul and Matchbox 20, which (thankfully) takes them out of the “Stone Age Classic Rock Dustbin” and infuses the trio with a fresh take on what people have come to know and expect from an ever-evolving band like Mother Lode.
