Imagine going to a double matinee showing of Led Zeppelin & P-Funk at Dream Theatre and then heading to an Amsterdam discotheque to dance til the sun came up. That's about as close as can be described without seeing Soap for yourself.
Like the band name, Soap’s music is undoubtedly fresh. With influences ranging from jazz, blues and funk to progressive, psychedelic and electronic, Soap skillfully fuses all of these genres into one – danceable rock. Set out to make every show inspiring, every note overflowing with energy and everybody move without remorse
Dance, rinse, repeat. Soap.
A delightful blend of psychedelic rock, dance and funk offers a look into the new generation of musicians and fans. Dead Larry transplanted themselves into Minneapolis in Oct of 2011 from their hometown of Iowa City, IA. A group of 4 guys in their early twenties, Dead Larry loves to party and encourages the crowd to get up and moving. With a vast range of influences it's hard to pin down the sound, but comparisons have been made to Modest Mouse, The Talking Heads, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd. Dead Larry encourages a community of friends and family (known as "The Family of Funky Friends") that continues to support and grow with Dead Larry throughout their adventures. Touring relentlessly across the country, Dead Larry is a psychedelic force to be reckoned with.
"An all too short set by psychedelic funk pop band, Dead Larry, from Iowa City, Iowa, was all I needed to realize where the great music truly was. Lead singer/rhythm guitarist Mark McGuiness screamed his lyrics with rock 'n' roll conviction to the raw and dark simplicity of the musical compromise that is the rest of the band. Each member worked their musical niche to create something greater than themselves that is Dead Larry."
- Travis Beck, The Daily Nebraskan (Jul 28, 2008) on Dead Larry's performance at 10,000 Lakes Festival '08
A new Minneapolis based jazz-funk experiment led by Kevin Gastonguay and an ever changing cast of bad dudes.
