Brad Savage & Nate Hanson
May 4 @ 5:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Brad Savage is a singer/acoustic guitar player who got his start in the public eye playing on the streets of downtown Fargo, ND where he quickly became known throughout the city as “That Idiot Who Still Plays Outside When It’s 11 Degrees Fahrenheit”. After moving back down to the Cities, he began playing bass and singing in the grunge-punk band Sheepshank. Brad’s acoustic set is heavily inspired by his busking and features many covers of classic rock, modern rock, and punk songs, as well as a few originals.
    Nate Hanson: a new(ish) Americana (love that catch-all term) singer-songwriter based out of his parent’s basement.  Writes songs about feeling older than he is while simultaneously dealing with the problems juvenile behavior brings.  Sounds like the record you play alone in the early hours of the late-night/morning, meaning acoustic, country-tinged music with a groove.  Plays around the Twin Cities Area and specializes in providing a distraction to fill up the awkward silence that accompanies Tinder dates.

House of Mercy Recordings Presents: Erik Brandt & The Urban Hillbilly Quartet

Erik Brandt and The Urban Hillbilly Quartet

“These concrete jungle hayseeds from the wind-whipped plains of St. Paul are fervent eclectics, liable to wander into funk,
Arabic, or Irish music at the drop of a hi-hat.  But their true allegiance is to bands like the Flying Burrito Brothers
and their descendents, who like to mash together country, bluegrass, and rock n’ roll.”
Rick Mason.  October 2003.  City Pages.  (Mpls, MN)

It started as a jam session in 1995 in a now burnt-out St. Paul hole-in-the-wall bar.  Over 18 years later, the Urban Hillbilly Quartet has grown into an award-winning Twin Cities-based ensemble that delivers an eclectic mix of musical styles, blending electric guitar, piano, accordion, bass and drums.  On stage, the Hillbillies perform mainly original material–most of which can be found on their eight albums—especially their latest: 2008’s Bring in the Sails.

Their music has been influenced by: Midwest powerhouses The Jayhawks and Uncle Tupelo; UK’s Grand Drive; Canada’s Bruce Cockburn; and folk/jazz star David Grisman.  UHQ has been compared to R.E.M., The Grateful Dead and The Waterboys.

The core of the band is Erik Brandt (guitar, accordion, piano, lead vocals), Jeremy Szopinski (electric guitar), Dave Strahan (electric guitar, banjo, vocals), Mike Schultz (bass) and Jim Orvis (drums) who have been performing together in the UHQ all over the United States and overseas.
