Troker
If Salvador Dali ever made a heist movie, then Mexico’s Troker would have been the soundtrack. Hailing from the land where tequila has long been its most famous export, Troker may just be the most important new musical export today. Troker’s sound careens between the sublime and the dangerous; a blend where metal riffage merges with powerhouse funk drumming and DJ scratching, with melodic horn lines pull from jazz and mariachi traditions. Troker is a band that cannot be pigeonholed into any one genre.

Their albums are almost cinematic; awaken the senses, and provoke powerful emotional reactions from listeners around the world. This proposal looks for adventurous, fearless listeners with diverse tastes in music; an invitation to join a sonic journey that has been curated by a group of creatively crazy musicians – an experience that might tactically be comparable to shock and awe. Troker’s artistic mission is to create music that excites the audiences’ senses, but more importantly, music that inspires the audiences’ soul. The world needs more daring musical consumers willing to be provoked and pulled out of their comfort zones.

“Immediately infectious tunes and an energetic live show“. –The Huffington Post
McNasty Brass Band
McNasty Brass Band is a collection of Minneapolis/Saint Paul based horn players and percussionists that fuse the Minneapolis sound with the spirit of New Orleans. The outcome of this fusion is hard-hitting dance music and high-energy live shows.

Each player works tirelessly outside McNasty Brass Band as a side-man, some with national and international touring acts. That’s what makes McNasty special-- these youthful but experienced side-men come together and showcase their compositions, solos, group vocals, and stage presence as front-men. “McNasty Brass Band is a perfect example of why you shouldn’t make fun of the kid who is super into trumpet in 5th grade” (twincitiesmedia.net). “King Size Life,” their first studio album (available January 27, 2017), encapsulates their live energy with exciting compositions, rowdy gang vocals, and rip-roaring solos. The only thing missing is their dance moves! “King Size Life” will be released along with a series of four music videos.
