Gumbo for the SoulMile Marker 7 was founded by the brothers McElroy officially in January 2000. Unofficially, Mitchell, Jordan, and Sean have been playing music together since the mid nineties. They built upon this brotherhood foundation of Motown, blues, and rock and roll, to form something that is uniquely their own. They possess a writing style coupled with vocal harmonies that only blood can conjure up, and a bond on stage it takes years to create.
Beginning with friend's parties, coffee houses, and local spots, they’ve now shared the stage with artists such as Benjy Davis and Tim Reynolds, and opened for juggernaut bands Phish, Kings Of Leon, and The Black Keys. They’ve played live on The Rick and Bubba Show, and have been nominated for a BAMA Award. MileMarker 7 released their second album, Get On Down the EP, in October 2009, and continue to tour the south playing predominately original music and setting the world on fire one soul at a time!
