The People Brothers Band (as The Band)
From humble beginnings at late-night open jams in a Downtown Madison bar, The People Brothers Band have solidified over the past three years into an eight-piece Rhythm & Soul powerhouse. Their eclectic blend of original grooves, conscious lyrics, soulfully mastered vocal and instrumental work, along with diverse self-tailored covers, holds the crowd on the dance floor and keeps them begging for more. From funk to soul, rock to reggae, folk to R & B, they’re guaranteed keep the audience on their feet.

Performing over 150 shows to date, The People Brothers Band are most at home on a live stage. As a testament to their passion for live music and adventure, The PBB have produced, hosted, and headlined their own grass-roots, independent, live music and camping festival every year, since their first summer together in 2009. Featuring three days of more than 30 local and regional bands from Madison and across the Midwest (look out for People Fest 4! (Aug 2012).

Comprised of: Teresa Marie (Lead Vox), Bobby G (Lead Vox/Keys), Greg Schmitt (Drums/Vox), Timmy Lochner (Guitar/Vox), Adam S…(Percussion/Vox), Nicky! (Lead Guitar/Vox), Matt Simmersauce (Saxophone/Vox), Scotty Lochner (Bass Guitar), and an influence spectrum ranging from Bluegrass to Hip-Hop…They are a hard act to pigeon-hole….

The Soapbox Project (as Bob Dylan)
The Soapbox Project (as Bob Dylan)
The SoapBox Project is a collection of music, words, ideas,
musicians, locations, eardrums and pulses....

Applying everything he's learned from his 6 years as the front man for the genre defying band Hooch, singer/songwriter Derek Ramnarace is currently writing and recording under a new moniker simply titled The SoapBox Project.

With a superb cast of top notch players (including Drummer Guy Boldon and Bassist Dan Braun), excellent songwriting and passionate live show, TSBP is quickly gaining fans and praise throughout the Midwest Music Scene.

The sound has been described as Roots, Roll n' Soul though many believe it's hard to sum it up that easily citing obvious influences in reggae, blues, folk, bluegrass, rock and many others.
The New Speedway Players
The New Speedway Players
The New Speedway Players are a conglomeration of long-time Madison musicians: Chad and Rob from Electric Spanking and
Baghdad Scuba Review; Tim and Sheryl from Chicken Bacon; Matt and Ben from The Gadjo Players, BEEFUS, Charlie Painter and Friends, and more. Brought together by the music from one of the greatest bands ever- The Grateful Dead. It's on this wondrous playground of musical joy you'll find them jamming and smiling all night long.

We feel that it's incumbent on us to do our part to preserve the music of The Grateful Dead. We do this not by collecting bootlegs of their shows or finding rare recordings (there are others out there doing that way more effectively), but by playing the music they created. We all have spent a great amount of time learning the 'rules' so-to-speak that the music of the Dead adheres to. Much like jazz or classical or bluegrass, their songs (more specifically the jams) follow riffs, motifs, and scale patterns that help make their sound so unique. Other groups try to replicate their sound to the tee with amps, speakers, guitars, and on and on. Even to the point of replicating shows to the date. Our approach is a little different in that we play in the spirit of what we feel is one the greatest bands in the history of music. Their jams were free and expressive while following their 'rules.' We try to do the same, just with our own touch.
