GENERAL B AND THE WIZ
Formed in 2009 by Seth Duin and Quincy Voris, General B and the Wiz have come a long way from their origins as a satire band. Since then, General B has gained three members and released two full-length albums along with their 2013 EP, Lie Until You Prove It.
General B and the Wiz connects with listeners through a variety of genres by writing songs from the heart and putting on high-energy performances. As collaborative songwriters, they have learned to allow songs to develop naturally while focusing on the essentials of rock and roll. General B and the Wiz delivers high-energy music that will keep you laughing, dancing, and rocking to your heart’s content.
The band will be releasing their third full-length album in Summer 2017, recorded with Joe Mabbott at The Hideaway Studios in Minneapolis, MN.
Sleeping Jesus, the soft-spoken hopeless romantic, paces his 3rd story apartment humming the melody to what would be “Brooklyn”. Caught flatfooted by unlikely love, uncertainty of what a summer in New York may bring, and the reality of a fleeting youth. New York falls through the cracks; he spends the mid west summer recording and writing what would soon become Perennial, his debut EP release. Perennial sweetly delivers a dose of nostalgia with the feeling of being torn apart by the surrender to love’s binding grip.
Consisting of four musicians from Minnesota, Ruben formed out of the pure joy of creating music and harmony. With influences ranging from rock n roll, to soul and pop, to the encompassing sonic force of the wall of sound, their music follows no set course, and often takes the shape of whatever it pleases. Songs are often layered with close harmonies, riffing guitars and warm horns.
