The Pistol Whippin Party Penguins:
Straight from the great Mill City comes the Pistol Whippin Party Penguins. Don't let the name fool you! This is not a violent group of flightless aquatic birds looking for a party, but rather 5 self proclaimed gentlemen, 2 guitars, a mandolin, a bucket of fiddles, an upright bass, a banjo, and a 4 part vocal harmony that will make Rush Limbaugh wanna pay taxes. This quintet from Minneapolis strives to maintain the original spirit of the "string band" while continuing to play new original music and creative cover songs. The combination of folk, rock, blues, bluegrass, and the occasional stage banter will create an experience that anyone can enjoy! Matt Walvatne, Jake Manders, Chris Pyle, Doug Canyon, Pat Mavity
Feeding LeRoy came out of the collaboration of Sonja and Lee's original songs, blending into a unique project, with their songwriting and vocal harmonies as the focus of this bands sound. It's kind of a family affair now, with brother Luke stepping in on the harmonica and long time friend and bassist, Adam Staupe on the upright bass, both adding their vocal harmonies, creating somewhat of a gospel undertone that acts as it's own instrument in the band.
You can find this foursome around the twin ports of Duluth, MN and Superior, WI, but they have also recently taken to the open road, bringing this up north sound to new cities across the nation. Think Gram Parsons and Emmylou meets the Jayhawks... its country music at its core, it's fun, its original, it's Feeding LeRoy.
