Summertime Shows

Although we have been recording and preparing our next EP, this summer we had the opportunity to play some awesome shows, including Good People Good Times and Gnawbrew Music Fest. We have more tour dates up for more chances to come see us before the summer is officially over.

2016 Guranteed to be a “Trip”

We are very excited to get back out on the road this summer. We have been writing, recording, booking, and working with a few management companies. Needless to say, we’ve been busy making sure that this next season brings The Trip as a whole new monster at bigger and better venues not just here in Indy, but all over the east coast. Make sure to stay up to date by liking us on Facebook or checking in here on the site from time to time. You won’t want to miss the huge leaps The Trip will be making this year.

Most importantly:

We want to thank all of our amazing friends, family, and fans who have continued to show us non stop support. Your faith in us made “The Trip” more than a hobby of local gigs and music writing; it took us to amazing places, introduced us to some incredible individuals, and created amazing memories for us that we are insanely thankful for. Words can’t describe how much we value our fans and the support they show us. We know that with you guys we will go farther than we could’ve imagined.

Thank you so much for a great year,
The Trip

“The Trip is a band of three, young well-rounded musicians in every way. Everywhere I see them play and when they perform at my radio show, their passion and desire for music really hits home with anyone and everyone that is listening.” This is what well known and respected Indy DJ, Penny Lane had to say of The Trip after they promoted an upcoming performance on her daily radio show. This was only months after the formation of the band and they were glad to already have accomplished so much. Their top of the line radio-quality EP recorded with award winning producer, Corey Miller, sold over 500 copies and the band wasn’t even a year old. Each member knew that this was more than just an after-school hobby, their music was selling on ITunes and Spotify and fans were sharing it with friends and family. Before The Trip knew it, they had garnered a fan base like no other and a reputation of releasing solid, flawless recordings and performing with an enormous amount of energy and clean sound.It all started when the band’s writer and front man, Dacota Muckey, saw the “Huxford Brothers” performing at a local all ages club in Fishers, Indiana. Jake  and Riley Huxford were a bass and drum duo that made an audience in awe at what a couple of brothers could do with nothing but four strings and some drums. Jake’s unique bass riffs with Riley’s extremely clean drumming caught Dacota’s ear immediatley. The three spoke after the show and after a few jams, The Trip was born.

The band wasted no time getting into the studio. They recorded their first 4 song EP  with award winning producer, Corey Miller, at The Lodge in downtown Indianapolis. The CD was a huge success and sold over 500 copies. Bars and venues started to become very interested in the buzz The Trip was producing in the music world. The three piece quickly got to gigging and promoting their unique sound. The owner of Bloomington’s Players Pub had this to say after experiencing The Trip; “We run a music house with 14 acts a week. My employees hear a lot of bands. Several of them bought “The Trip” CDs & insist that we keep their CD in the house music rotation. These 3 young players love to play and it shows.”

Their music has now been performed in hundreds of bars and festivals all over Indiana from the Bluebird, to the Cornstock Festival, Occustock and more. They have made appearances on radio stations all over Indy including  WTTS in Bloomington, Giant 96 Real Radio in Shelbyville, Radio Free Indy Online and more! Their music is being sold on ITunes, Google Play Store, and more. It’s very clear that The Trip is going big places and their music is the driving force behind their success.

On May 9th, 2015; after half a year of recording, The Trip released their first full-length album, “Cloud 9.” They sold over 100 physical copies the night of the release and are continuing to get a copy into every hand in the music world. “This album, it represents progress for us. Its a perfect portrayal of the sound that molds our band into what it is,” lead singer Dacota Muckey proclaimed.

Anyone who is introduced to The Trip in the musical world immediately realizes that they a very serious musical force. “They have the fullest sound I’ve ever heard a 3 piece have,” claims Owner of Stable Studios, Chris Kinnick. Expect nothing but big things from The Trip. They are sky rocketing at an exponential rate and their music isn’t just getting a big hype here in Indy, but all over the country. Stable Studios just recently launched an online radio station the plays The Trip’s songs all over the world!
