"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!"
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
Sovereign Sect
Sovereign Sect
Hailing from the frozen Tundra of Fargo, Sovereign Sect has taken the reins and pioneered one of the most underrated, vibrant live electronic scenes in the midwest. The Sect has played longside such acts as Marty Party, Mimosa, Ana Sia, Kraddy, Two Fresh, Pnuma Trio, Signal Path, EOTO, Fresh@Death, SPECTRE, OTT, Nasty Nasty, Mochipet, Eprom, Eskmo, Lynx and Janover, Beats Antique, Propa Tingz and Vibesquad, and have become a staple for bass music lovers from hundreds of miles away. With the recent addition of two new members to the previous producer/drummer combo, Sovereign Sect is delving into new realms of live production and improvised digital controllerism - tactfully fusing live performance aspects of traditional jam bands with the dance-friendly, musical-riot-enducing elements hip-hop, and bass culture music. Sovereign Sect is a sonic phenomenon not to be missed.
