Summary: Voodoo Mary was at the pinnacle of rock stardom in the 90’s, charting a string of hits, playing to sold-out stadiums around the world, and even notching a Grammy nomination. Somewhat of an anomaly, the band itself was a revolving door for musicians that served as a vehicle for the band’s namesake, principal songwriter, and only original member, Mary Kershaw. The world, however, loved Voodoo Mary and were captivated by her voice which had once been described as “a bayou blend of cigarette smoke, attitude, and smooth whiskey.” Yet, like so many bands, their star doesn’t shine quite as brightly anymore, and they are a shadow of the band they used to be, playing in clubs with a capacity of 500 instead to arenas of 20,000. Desperate to right the ship and help Voodoo Mary reclaim its spot amongst rock royalty, manager Reg Kennedy announced suddenly that all of the band members and road crew would be replaced at the end of the tour in hopes of finding a group of professionals who could do justice to Mary’s impressive catalog of songs. Tempers and tensions understandably ran high because of the decision, but the two shows leading up to the end of the tour went off well despite it all. The Carbon Underground was set to be the last show with the current band and road crew. Everything seemed to be going according to schedule until Reg didn’t show up for the VIP Meet and Greet, leaving Mary’s personal assistant to manage the event. A throng of fans was actually in the middle of posing for photos with Mary and the rest of the band when someone accidentally bumped one of the equipment cases near the stage, causing the body of a very dead band manager to fall out.
