New Sound Underground
New Sound Underground
Marked by their high-energy, all-instrumental performances, New Sound Underground has become a must-see band in the Minneapolis music scene. The band stands out with all original songs, engaging arrangements and exhilarating live shows. Drawing inspiration from a wide array of styles including funk, jazz, fusion, rock, soul, R&B, and gospel, the band released its debut self-titled album in 2013, a year in which they also went on to play the Telluride Jazz Festival. This success has allowed the band to perform at prominent venues including First Avenue (Minneapolis), The Dakota Jazz Club (Minneapolis), The Twin Cities Jazz Festival ('13,'16), and Prince's renowned "Paisley Park: After Dark" series.

In 2014, New Sound Underground partnered with the legendary venue First Avenue in Minneapolis to start a new concert series called "Funk on First" and held well attended shows that included great local bands from the up-and-coming funk/fusion/jazz scene in the Twin Cities. New Sound Underground was voted "Best Jam Band of 2015" by the Twin Cities local paper City Pages. In March of 2016, the band partnered with Last Triumph's annual Take Off Tour to SXSW in Austin, TX.

New Sound Underground will release its second album this Summer entitled Push and continues to captivate audiences with their original sound.
Bird's Eye
Bird's Eye
Bird's Eye is a Madison six-piece creating funky hip hop with live instrumentation. Building cred steadily since 2013, they now fill venues alongside other prime acts both local and touring. Shows are characterized by the band's ability to engage a crowd and surprise even devoted fans when inviting guests to share the stage impromptu.

The rhythm section—featuring Evan's explorative bass, Sean's refined drumming, and Lauren adorning the mix with keys, vocals and sax—builds a groove-driven foundation for Ra Fury's cutting lyricism, Joe's wah-wah counterpoint on guitar, and Hannah's soulful lead-singing. All six are uniquely valued because everyone has a part in each song that makes it so recognizable. Bird's Eye plays at least monthly in the Madison area and has demos posted on Soundcloud and Youtube—show your support!
