About the Bands
The Muatas (Ayanna and Cam Muata) are a duo that writes, produces, and performs their own music. Their style is a mix of post-punk, trip hop, dark wave, shoe gaze, and electronic with a mixed sound of sampled and programmed beats, layered with synthesizer, guitar and bass guitar, ambient strings, and vocals that often range between the melodic and spoken.
The Real Chuck NORAD is a Minneapolis based musical group providing a soundtrack to a dystopian future we deserve. They try on the music of bands they like because it’s fun. They also like playing songs for the future that they write on their own spaceship. Band members include Chris Hepola drums, Paul Perez percussion, Josh Granowski bass, Albert Perez guitar, Matty Harris tenor, Nathan Berry trumpet/trombone, and Jenna Wyse vocals.
Mad Mojo Jett is an all-star party-rock, garage-trash, doom-pop quartet from Minneapolis. The band features Mady and Monet from The Toxenes, Joe from Low Rats, and Eric from JettKick.
