Quincy Mumford & The Reason Why

July 25, 2016 at 6pm


This summer, Quincy Mumford & The Reason Why brings funk to their hometown of Asbury Park.

Mumford was nine years old when a neighborhood friend prodded him to learn guitar so the two could start a funk band. Enamored with the music of Blink-182, Talking Heads, Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Pink Floyd and Sublime, Mumford began to focus on songwriting after hearing Jack Johnson’s album In Between Dreams. At age 15, Mumford started taking his feel-good act to open mics around town. In 2008, when Mumford was just 16 years old, Lakehouse Music released his self-titled debut album.

After 600 plus shows and four award-winning albums, Mumford released his fifth album, It's Only Change, in July 2013. Recorded in Nashville, Tenn. with producer Ken Coomer (Wilco, Uncle Tupelo), It's Only Change features performances by Jerry Roe (K.D. Lang), David Labruyere (John Mayer) and Aubrey Freed (Black Crowes, Sheryl Crow). Mumford—who has performed at The Gathering of the Vibes in Bridgeport, Conn. and Musikfest in Bethlehem, Penn.—has shared the stage with Slightly Stoopid, Rusted Root, moe., Donovan Frankenreiter and Tedeschi Trucks Band.
