Porky’s Groove Machine is the intergalactic ambassador of Wisconsin’s silliest nerd funk. Since forming in 2011 we’ve been spreading the funk across the Midwest and East Coast. Comprised of a three-piece horn section and auxiliary percussionist on top of a traditional rock rhythm section, the Groove Machine’s sophisticated musicality and not-so-sophisticated humor has been described by Julian Loida of WIUX (Bloomington, IN) as “the vibe of the B-52’s and the Flaming Lips combined with the sound of Phish, G. Love and Special Sauce, and New Orleans music.”


The Hennepin County Millionaires Club is a 7-piece band from Minneapolis. Drawing from a wide variety of influences, “HCMC” incorporates elements of rock and roll, country, ska, pop, reggae, New Orleans, funk, and soul. Despite having a great breadth of influence, it’s difficult to say that any of those genres would accurately describe their music. Their sound is original and unique, but remains cohesive and catchy, with a general pop sensibility. Instrumentation includes a 3-piece horn section, 2 guitars, bass, keyboards, drums, and vocals. All of which are featured prominently throughout the music.


Radiochurch is a dynamic collection of musicians based in Minneapolis. Each member of Radiochurch brings in their own unique elements of 90s R&B/hip-hop, soul, and heavy rock, and when they come together the result is a polished feel-good experience that lends itself to any music lover. Ellis Cleve (vocals) Trevor Wiest (guitar), Jack Barrett (keys), Greg Byers (bass) and Lars Johnson (drums).
