Seaberg is a hip-hop, jazz punk, and neo-soul band fronted by black genderqueer guitarist, Taylor Seaberg, Paraguayan drummer, Carlos Kelley, and bassist, Joshua Maxwell . Often soulful and punk driven, the group carries a vibrant energy. Under their former name of "People Will Dance," Seaberg's in-studio performance of their song "Vibes" was featured in City Pages' Local Frames and the Local Current blog's Friday Five music video roundups. Seaberg has also performed at an MPR sponsored album release show for Chastity Brown's "Silhouette of Sirens" at The Fitzgerald Theater, a Greenroom Magazine sponsored show for Oshun, as well as Minneapolis Institute of Art's Third Thursday Art + Lit events. In late 2016, Seaberg released their first demoed recordings. The name of the EP--'The People Will Dance Tapes'--nods towards the origins of the band while looking toward the future. Songs like 'Fool's Gold' pay homage to the stylings of jazz guitarist George Benson melding social commentary about hook up culture along with breakup blues. Taylor showcases their auto-biographical lyrical abilities on tracks like 'I Don't Know' and 'Run.' When not performing with the full band, Taylor can be found performing their solo original music under the same name.

Laurel & The Love-In:
Laurel & the Love-In came together piece by piece, soldiering on until they found each other in Nashville in 2015. The common love of early rock and roll are what brought them together, but it’s their wide array of influences that help them to stand out. Their fusion of raw blues, rock and roll guitar solos, and 1960s girl-group inspired harmonies help them create a sound that is entirely their own.
The band consists of lead singer and pianist Laurel Sorenson, Krista Hess on guitar, background vocalist Veronica Selby, drummer Michael Rasile, and keyboardist Sarah Bernstein.
