The name Mene Mene, pronounced [mɛneɪ mɛneɪ], comes from Daniel 5:25, where King Belshazzar has a vision depicting the end of his reign. Like the interpretation of the dream, Mene Mene hopes to bring thought-provoking, allegorical ideas for listeners while creating aesthetically pleasing music. The group Mene Mene is Brad Feagan and Alec Stockman. The two have been playing together in various bands throughout the Kansas City area for nearly 2 years. Before Mene Mene Brad studied voice at KU, obtained his teaching degree, and played bass and piano in several local bands. In college he played bass for the Lousiana Street Band and won a national battle of the bands hosted by General Mills. He also plays bass for the Kansas City-based band Future Kings. Alec, a KC native, has been playing drums since high school and creates backtracks, lights, and recordings. Mene Mene sounds epic, orchestral, and dark. Brad’s classical piano style over Alec’s technical drum skills create unique, poignant, and stirring sonorities. Their lyrics aim to evoke specific feelings and thoughts in their listeners while the music pulls them in with haunting melodies, beats, and riffs. With their first EP effort Stone, Steel, and Spark, Mene Mene hopes to break into the Kansas City music scene and carve a place for their pensive and cerebral sound.
