Uprooted from Galveston, Texas riding the wave of musical medicine. With a side note of comedy, and eccentric yet eclectic style of fashion, and a folky sound and gypsy vibe that amps up a crowd and keeps you moving your head, tapping your feet... or just get up and lay the boogie down! We have had the honor to perform at festivals such, Arise, Project Earth, Shangri La, Flow Fest and more. The vision behind this project is to spread spiritual healing and awareness worldwide. We all know change is needed in this world drastically, but we cant change until we all realize our potential in each and every one of us. We know that, together, we are all the change!
...it's a movement of people who want to better themselves for the sake of the planet, the universe. A movement to help people gain consciousness, and awareness of whats going on around them. A movement that promotes positivity and the realization that we are all mirrors, and that we all reflect upon one another.

Space Monkey Mafia:
Space Monkey Mafia is an up and coming 6-piece ensemble out of the Twin Cities, Minnesota. Known for their high energy live performances, Space Monkey Mafia takes cues from classic ska/punk bands of the 90s and 00s while adding a healthy dose of rock, pop, blues and jazz. With members being trained at McNally Smith College of Music, the band incorporates top notch musicianship with fun cover medleys and danceable original songs. One of the band’s strengths is its versatility, pairing saxophonist Dante Leyva’s powerful soul vocals with guitarist Blake Foster’s punk howl, with every other member contributing vocals as well. Rounded out by a three piece horn section and a tight rhythm section, Space Monkey Mafia leaves it all onstage while performing live. Stay tuned for their debut release, coming out early 2018!
Multi-instrumentalist and hybrid DJ, producer and performer BadNraD has become a fixture of the Minneapolis electronic music scene with his unique synth-heavy sound. Majestic vocals and epic harmonies float atop intoxicating melodies and body-moving bass lines. His work running the gamut from bright, funky and energetic to dark, deep and intense, there’s always a surprise in store for the listener.
He’s a regular on MPR’s “The Current” radio and KFAI, and his eclectic style has him opening for such musical luminaries as EOTO, Woody McBride and Darksiderz. BadNraD has rocked the dance floor in the famed First Avenue main room on several unforgettable occasions and was also featured in their Best New Bands showcase. Summer Fest, Bella Music Festival, and Bassgasm are just some of the massive Midwest events to experience BNR at his best… In front of huge crowds and behind huge sound systems.
His latest release “Deep End” (courtesy of Last Triumph Records) is a seven-track feast for the ears with a sensual, funky and pulse-pounding array of neo-retro pop/dance fusion reminiscent of the best music of the late 80’s and early 90’s, topped off with a contemporary twist. Emotional, vivid and rhythmically intense, “Deep End” is the ultimate aural tonic for those who like their music sexy, hip and innovative.
