The Brass Messengers are a Minneapolis street band playing mostly original music inspired by global sources. The BMs formed from the annual rubble of of the Heart of the Beast Mayday Parade and Ceremony in Minneapolis. The musical origins were found in the music of Africa, the Carribean and Balkans, but now the BMs play whatever works, throwing in a country song to the crying drinkers, a high speed polka or two for the midwest dancers, running in circles with the little ones, activating gatherings of our activist kin or a bit of Black Sabbath for the metal crowd. But mostly, it is an original music that rises from the heart of the band that can only be described as a homegrown Minneapolis street music sound.

Tree Party is a band of small-town transplants that now make music in Minneapolis. They started six years ago as a folk-country band, hot-iron branding the covers of every album, playing street dances and bull rides. Then they toured the Southern States with “The 7-Shot Symphony,” an Ivey Award-winning theatre production that they composed and performed a live Spaghetti Western-style score to. Their most recent release, Iced Over, was commissioned by the state of Minnesota and it sent the band up and around the Boundary Waters, into the Iron Range and along the Mississippi researching stories for songs. With more Blues and Rock influences these days, Tree Party manages to maintain that vintage-country feel with a groove for the present-day listener.
