Useful Jenkins is a spirited group that mixes campfire mystique along with a driven acoustic rock show. Their music takes you back to the front porch with a jug of shine and a foot stompin’ good time. The band’s original songs are well crafted and stick in your head long after the show. Their nicely placed cover tunes span their influences which include Yonder Mountain, Grateful Dead, and some traditional bluegrass. This is a show that will make you wanna kick off your shoes and dance away your cares.
Mikel Wright and the Wrongs
Currently based out of South Minneapolis, Mikel Wright & The Wrongs is an ever-evolving group of talented musicians. Mikel broke fast onto the Minneapolis music scene in the summer of 2007 and has since earned a respected reputation for cultivating ridiculous bands and unforgettable jams.

Most recently, Mikel has tag teamed shows and built lasting bonds with other acts such as: Shoeless Revolution, Jon Wayne & The Pain, Roster McCabe, BigTree Bonsai, Scott Zaker, Mark Joseph Project, SOAP, and P.B. & The Jam. Mikel is constantly innovating his progressive beach-funk sound by adding fresh players and creating new renditions of his originals and covers alike.
Their catalog is vast whether they are performing their own music or the music of their idols. From The Doors to James Taylor, or Bob Marley to Sublime, this band is sure to get all audiences singing and dancing along.
Mikel Wright & The Wrongs have performed at the hottest clubs in minneapolis to festivals ranging from the biggest in the world, Summerfest in Milwaukee, to Minnesota's own Big Wu Family Reunion, Bella, and 10,000 Lakes Festivals.

# Gripweed is rambling, rolling, grooving, good times music. Their songs roll like the hills of the Midwest. They groove & climb like the Rocky Mountains where they are created, and they ramble like Ole Miss herself. In a word Gripweed's music is America in all it's wild glory. Underneath the depression in these hard times, underneath the bullet fast lifestyles we live today there is still an America that is real and free, that is calling us all back to live more simply and to care enough to bring others along with us on that journey. It's time for a REVIVAL and Musketeer Gripweed will make you TESTIFY!" Jon Jordan-NADY Press " Jon Jordan - Nady Press

Look, we make original music from the heart. We out everything into our music, and as people, on a basic level, we are more driven to be friends that sell ourselves to the music industry. We have patience, mindfulness, and we care about each other and the people that enjoy our music. Musketeer Gripweed is unlike any other band, because our friendships and fun are the most important things we seek.....and the music happens because of this.....but here's more fo' ya iffin' ya want! Peace!.
