Eugine Roszo is a local Ukrainian born singer/songwriter and recording artist performing under the name “Roszo”. His original content is heavily influenced by his upbringing in Northeast Minneapolis, and by his connection to dance, painting, and creative writing. Roszo released his first EP worldwide in 2016, which quickly earned him a following on Spotify, Facebook, and Instagram. His dance-infused music video for the title track “Give it All” received acclaim from the Minnesota dance community, and a live presentation of the choreography (performed by Roszo himself) was included in the 2017 Minnesota Fringe Festival.
Roszo has studied songwriting under Judy Stakee at her workshop in San Francisco, guitar with Minnesota favorite Joey Flip, annually attends the CDbaby DIY musician conference, and is a volunteer with the Minnesota Music Coalition. Roszo is a regular at the Coffee Shop Northeast, Underground Music Cafe, and Blarney’s Downtown. He actively donates his talent to the community and can be seen at fundraisers for various Twin Cities Non-profit organizations. Upcoming engagements include a new EP and video content to be released in 2018.

The Marimba Bullies is a Twin Cities-based marimba ensemble playing upbeat, high-energy music based on the rhythmically complex music of the Zimbabwe mbira tradition. The Bullies’ repertoire consists of traditional African songs as well as arrangements of contemporary music performed in the lively, danceable, and just plain fun style that is unmistakably the Marimba Bullies.
John and Chanel Lane fell for each other as they fell into old-time music seven years ago as part of Chicago square dance string band Can I Get An Amen. They have emerged from five years of homesteading in the rural Midwest as a deeply entwined duo, pivoting between traditional songs, fiddle tunes, original material, modern covers, and square dances.

Singer/songwriter Andrew Spreck digs deep into classic rock, folk rock, classic country… anything with soul and passion to deliver an inspiring blend of cover songs and original material in live performances, as well as through his two studio recordings.
Early in Andrew’s solo acoustic journey, he started using the phrase “keep music live” and he does just that, averaging 40 shows a year—frequently accompanied by a percussionist—with 30 original songs rotating throughout his performances and more songs than he can play in one sitting, Andrew’s set list changes with every show.
Spreck is in his 25th year as a performing musician. In 2011 he transitioned from lead guitarist/lead vocalist playing in rock & blues cover bands to blossom into an outstanding solo acoustic artist.
While his first solo cd of original music titled “In the distance” is reminiscent of his electrified rock background, it also foreshadows the future with a handful of acoustic-driven songs. The follow-up “Devotion”, released mid-2014 is a true snapshot of the life he’s been living. Roughly half of the songs on Devotion were born directly from the solo acoustic experience.
In the electronic age of limitless personal jukeboxes, Andrew’s music celebrates a simpler time when music was honest and earthy.
