"What is Wookiefoot? What isn’t Wookiefoot?!
Wookiefoot is a band, a Non-Profit 501C3 Charity Organization
(www.bethechangecharities.org), a circus, a philosophy, and a community of globe trekking bliss junkies and believers that are the fuel to keep thisTribadelic Spaceship going! Their charity organization (with the support of their community) has donated over $500,000 to third world relief efforts.
Wookiefoot invites their community home every September… when they host and headline their own Global Conscious Gathering calledShangri~La Festival at Harmony Park in Southern MN.

Wookiefoot’s live sets are an always inspiring and entertaining barrage of sonic and visual stimulation. The fast paced circus like set has been called “Short Attention Span Musical Theater”. These live performances are a
one of a kind experience that mixes Reggae, World Beat, Hip Hop, Irish, Funk, Folk, Rock & more with a large band featuring everything from a vintage Hammond Organ to Bag Pipes! Combine that with a mind-blowing stage show that may include anything (such as a light show, projection,
costumes, fire, dancers, aerialists, magic, clowns, puppets, etc)… and you better buckle up! Welcome… and thank you for riding Wookiefoot!"
Kinetix
Kinetix
Dynamic. How better to describe Kinetix, a band whose most recent album Let Me In hit #47 on the iTunes Top 200 Rock Charts and yet just wrapped separate national tours with hip hop darlings Flobots and Australian roots-rock kings Beautiful Girls? ‘Let Me In’ certainly plays like a byproduct of a unique career trajectory, managing to maintain a fresh approach while smoothly transitioning between energetic rock and carefully crafted pop. Hot on the heels of their new album, a free acoustic show release and an upcoming slew of major summer festival dates, Kinetix looks to be even more potent in the coming months. Already renowned for their performances, it’s easy to call Kinetix in 2011 a “must-see” live act. Simply put, they’re the type of band that reminds you why it’s fun to let loose.

Kinetix’s rise from their humble Denver roots into a nationally touring band is the result of talent, enthusiasm and a lot of hard work. Formed at the Lamont School of Music at Denver University, Kinetix was originally meant as a vehicle to blow off steam and play music at weekend hangouts. However, their popularity during those early days became a campus phenomenon that quickly outgrew the limited confines of house parties and campus events. Within two years of forming, Kinetix was selling out local theatres and collecting invites to summer festivals nationwide. Encouraged by the warm response, the band set out to establish themselves nationally and have been building their fanbase ever since.

The eleven tracks of Let Me In were engineered and mixed by Jason Livermore at the reputably rock and roll Blasting Room Studios and mastered by Chris Gehringer of Sterling Sound. The new album builds upon the band’s reputation as a live tour de force, but now heralds the rock quintet as studio musicians capable of creating an album worthy of mainstream radio play.

Kinetix is:

Eric Blumenfeld – vocals, keys

Adam Lufkin – vocals, rhythm guitar

Jordan Linit – lead guitar

Josh Fairman – bass

Pete Koopmans – drums
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
