Satsang
Biography
Satsang is a Conscious Music Collective blending world conscious lyrics with a unique blend of Folk, Soul, Indie Rock, and Hip-Hop. Satsang seems to have something for every musical palate. The lyrics come from and are rooted in change, growth, awareness, and imperfection, and are used as a mission statement for reflection, growth, and activation. Touching on everything from the bliss of traveling and the growing pains of change: to societal ills and civil rights. The live show is everything that the band name suggests: A gathering of people to assimilate and share their truths. The rhythms and energy put forth by the band keep everyone on their feet, and the lyrics leave them craving active and immediate change. Satsang has toured all over the country and has shared the stage with the likes of Steel Pulse, Nahko and Medicine for the People, Trevor Hall, Wookiefoot, Mike Love, and many more. "It still amazes me how far they have come in such a short period of time. With a very dedicated fan base and a lot of respect in the music community amongst other artists, Satsang is a band to watch closely. "
Smokin' Joe
Smokin' Joe
Smokin’ Joe is a Minneapolis based alt-grass supergroup fronted by Joe Scarpellino (of Dead Larry). Joe hosts a rotating cast of Midwest talent featuring members of Kind Country, Useful Jenkins, Space Monkey Mafia, and SisterTree, just to name a few. The genre is a mix of bluegrass and 90s alternative rock, with elements of folk, pop, reggae, blues, and funk.

Smokin’ Joe songs focus on the lyrical content and melodies most of all. The songs and stories are often autobiographical, and provide a real and raw look into the tragic yet joyous life of Joe Scarpellino. Joe utilizes his music as an emotional outlet, and the songs are as much therapy for him, as his fans. Overall it's about balance. You can not have love, hope, and togetherness without fear, despair, and loss. It’s this balance that draws fans to the music. The number one goal is to inspire and to be inspired in return, for there is no greater gift in life.

Smokin' Joe has performed with such acts as Nicholas David, Trevor Hall, Wookiefoot, Pert Near Sandstone, Useful Jenkins, Kind Country, The Ragbirds, and more.
