SOAP:

Like the band name, Soap’s music is undoubtedly fresh. With influences ranging from jazz, blues and funk to progressive, psychedelic and electronic, Soap skillfully fuses all of these genres into one – dance infused rock. Imagine going to a double matinee showing of Led Zeppelin & P-Funk at Dream Theater and then heading to an Amsterdam discotheque to dance until the sun came up. That’s about as close as can be described without seeing Soap for yourself.

Originally from just south of Chicago, Illinois, Soap uprooted and moved to Minneapolis in 2007 and has become a staple in the thriving Twin Cities music scene. January of 2014 will mark three years of Soap’s weekly residency at The Cabooze, a long-standing tradition at the legendary Minneapolis venue. Following the likes of The Big Wu and God Johnson, Soap has not only continued that tradition, but has expanded on it with a new allegiance of fans. These strong Midwest ties have also helped the band tour successfully throughout the region and beyond, notching over 120 shows each of the past three years.

Soap has become a favorite on the festival circuit, performing at 10,000 Lakes Festival (2 times), Summer Camp Music Festival, Wakarusa Music Festival, Big Wu Family Reunion (2), Bella Music Festivals (4), Prairie Grass Music Festival (2), Whippersnap Music Festival (2), Shoe Fest (3), Wookiefoot’s Project Earth and Shangri-La (formerly Harvestfest), as well as sharing the stage with notable acts and performers, such as Tea Leaf Green, Zach Deputy, Bernie Worrell, The Motet, Hot Buttered Rum, Kinetix, Jon Wayne & The Pain, Heatbox, Roster McCabe, Steve Molitz and more.

 

 

 

Kind Country:

Kind music for kind people. Kind Country is a Minneapolis based band that plays American standards as well as their own brand of Cosmic American music. Since their formation in 2012, the band has focused on creating live performances with high levels of improvisation and energy gathering with a goal of creating a moment of musical bliss that can be shared by audience members and band alike.

Kind Country released their debut self titled album “Kind Country” in the fall of 2013. Since then they have been bringing their music on the road playing live performances at theaters, bars, auditoriums, festivals, and everywhere in between all throughout the United States.

Formed as a 6 piece string band in 2012, Kind Country has recently begun incorporating drums and keyboard into some of their live performances bringing the total number of musicians to 8. This large collaboration of musicians has recently begun production on their next album slated to come out sometime later this year.
