The Karma Mechanics:
The Karma Mechanics is a band from Black Mountain, NC, that formed after performers at White Horse Black Mountain’s Tuesday Night Open Mic met and decided to converge forces of Rock & Roll into a collective of musical diversity and originality. Singer Dave Landy (age 70) has been writing songs since Woodstock, equipped with a guitar, he’s going to, “Play that 6 string ’til the day I die!” Hamza Vandehey (age 34) has joined Landy on stage since their debut performance at White Horse Black Mountain in the Fall of 2015, stitching the soundscape together with ecclectic electric guitar stylings to compliment Landy’s percussive rhythm guitar foundation. In 2018, Hamza brought in his uncle, seasoned Bass Player Dan Toomey (age 69) to complete the rhythm section with a neighbor of Landys, Scott Jones (ageless!) a former Rock Radio Disc Jockey with a strong affinity for everything that ROCKS! Their debut album will be realeased mid-2020, entitled “Here for a Good Time.”
