REED GRIMM: Reed Grimm started his life on stage. Growing up in Ellsworth, Wisconsin with a nationally touring musical family he joined the act at the remarkable age of 2. Not only did performing come naturally to him, but Reed realized that it was an opportunity to create experiences that can truly change lives. After picking up the drum set at age 12 he played in several bands, but it wasn’t until his high-energy band Shoeless Revolution that he blended drumming with lead singing. Touring extensively throughout the country, Shoeless traded sets with acts such as Cold War Kids, The Flaming Lips, The Black Keys and The Roots. In 2011 an unexpected audition for American Idol caught the attention of the judges which carried him to perform for 20 million viewers on Live TV, landing him at #14 on season 11. He recently released his debut solo album “Reminders” which was funded by a successful Kickstarter campaign raising $28,000. With an enthusiastic personality, vibrant music, and drive to inspire the creativity within everyone, Reed Grimm has traveled the world performing at festivals, schools, hospitals, has made multiple trips overseas to perform for members of the US military, and collaborated with several non-profits to help their unique missions flourish.
DEAD LARRY: Dead Larry’s powerful blend of high energy rock, dance and funk shakes the foundation of modern music. From rock driven sea shanties to pulsating dance beats. From Beatle-esque harmonies to spine chilling screams. From shake-yo-booty funk jams to orchestral themes of space and time travel. Dead Larry is one thing: Original. The band was formed in a basement in high school, and after over a decade of writing, touring, and chasing the dream Dead Larry has a grown to be one of the most prominent independent rock bands coming out of the Midwest.
SUPER ACOUSTIC BROS: A super-group of sorts playing funked up acoustic music for video game nerds. Comprised of Aaron Heaton (Heatbox), Reed Grimm, Alex Steele, and Nick Spielman – and possibly more special guests!
MAE SIMPSON: Mae Simpson is a singer/ songwriter born in Beaufort South Carolina. From a very early age, she would find herself singing songs that she had never heard, because they were hers. Throughout the years, she has found love in the music that she writes, with passion, soul, and a rawness reflected with each lyric.Today she works with an array of talented musicians in the Twin cities, hoping to bring soul and female power back to the local music scene.
SMOKIN’ JOE: Smokin’ Joe is a Minneapolis based alt-grass supergroup fronted by Joe Scarpellino (of Dead Larry). Joe hosts a rotating cast of Midwest talent featuring members of Kind Country, Useful Jenkins, Space Monkey Mafia, and SisterTree, just to name a few. The genre is a mix of bluegrass and 90s alternative rock, with elements of folk, pop, reggae, blues, and funk.

Best known for his roles on Adult Swim’s Tim & Eric Awesome Show Great Job!, David Liebe Hart is an outsider musician, actor and painter. A true original, he has communicated with extra-terrestrials, owns a large collection of puppets, and is obsessed with trains.
On stage, David unleashes his most unbridled, maniacally passionate self, complete with his decrepit ventriloquist puppets, stories of alien encounters, and heartily belted songs about space, locomotives and unrequited love. Every show is as different and unpredictable as David is himself, and can veer from hilarity in one moment to awkward confusion in the next. In any case, a truly unique and mind-bending experience is guaranteed. This fall’s US tour has Liebe Hart backed by electronic wizard Jonah “Th’ Mole” Mociun.

Chip The Black Boy was once just one of David’s puppets but has taken on a life of his own with the help of frequent Liebe Hart collaborator Jonah Mociun who has re-fashioned Chip into a creepy high-pitched rapper. With an album of his own and a hit YouTube video (“Am I Weird?” – https://youtu.be/nvWD7xT0Alk) Chip now takes the stage as a solo act.
Whatever Your Heart Desires draws influences from old school hip hop, hardcore punk, and Japanese footwork to pose a bold challenge to mainstream EDM music. In a live setting WYHD employs Donkey Kong bongos, hand-made MIDI controllers, and video projection for an immersive audio-visual experience. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMQaP_SwUJ8
