Dead Larry
Dead Larry
A delightful blend of psychedelic rock, dance and funk offers a look into the new generation of musicians and fans. Dead Larry transplanted themselves into Minneapolis in Oct of 2011 from their hometown of Iowa City, IA. A group of 4 guys in their early twenties, Dead Larry loves to party and encourages the crowd to get up and moving. With a vast range of influences it's hard to pin down the sound, but comparisons have been made to Modest Mouse, The Talking Heads, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd. Dead Larry encourages a community of friends and family (known as "The Family of Funky Friends") that continues to support and grow with Dead Larry throughout their adventures. Touring relentlessly across the country, Dead Larry is a psychedelic force to be reckoned with.

"An all too short set by psychedelic funk pop band, Dead Larry, from Iowa City, Iowa, was all I needed to realize where the great music truly was. Lead singer/rhythm guitarist Mark McGuiness screamed his lyrics with rock 'n' roll conviction to the raw and dark simplicity of the musical compromise that is the rest of the band. Each member worked their musical niche to create something greater than themselves that is Dead Larry."
- Travis Beck, The Daily Nebraskan (Jul 28, 2008) on Dead Larry's performance at 10,000 Lakes Festival '08
Max Graham & The Fam

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.

Tim Booth
Tim Booth
Timothy John Booth (born 4 February 1960) is an English singer, dancer, and actor best known as the lead singer from the band James.

Booth was born in Bradford, West Yorkshire, England and attended Shrewsbury School. Whilst a student at Manchester University studying drama, Booth encountered Jim Glennie, Paul Gilbertson and Gavan Whelan in 1981 in the cellar bar of the University's student union. Impressed by Booth's distinctive dancing style, Gilbertson invited Booth to join their band as a dancer. Booth accepted the offer, and was soon promoted to lead singer and lyricist of James.

After a struggle for success and recognition throughout the 1980s, James finally achieved commercial success in the early 1990s with the rise of the Manchester music scene, and their single "Sit Down" reaching number 2 in the UK Singles Chart.

During 1995, Booth took a break from James and recorded an album with film composer Angelo Badalamenti, entitled Booth And The Bad Angel. He then returned to James to complete the recording of the album Whiplash, and stayed with the band until 2001 when he announced his departure to concentrate on other projects.

2007 marked the return of James, with new tunes and extensive touring through 2008.
