Food is available on site by Asase YAA, pronounced “ah-sah-see-yah”, and means “mother earth” in Akon Mythology. Global foods for festivals with vegan and vegetarian options available.
Chaos Combat Marching is a dark & powerful mash up of noise artists & musicians who rock juxtaposed with a classic (deconstructed) marching band style. The group follows the basic construct of a standard marching band, but trades woodwinds and brass for customized circuit bent toys and devices. Members include: Ben Severns, Nicholas Knutson, Steve Peterson, Daniel Ciernia, Nicholas Smith, Colleen Harris-Severns, Darrin Casey, Greg Ganellis, Brad Fabian, James Graham, John Vance, Keiko Kawakami, Jake ElDjVasques, Jason Hayes, Jack Lasecke, Whittney Streeter and John Schwarzkopf.
The Magnificent Edison High School Alumni Marching Band Shun the shuttle, the bling, the sheet music and the graduating trombonists. Think high stepping, casual uniforms, and band music learned in high school. Now you’ve got the picture and sound Edison High School Alumni Marching Band, marching strong in Northeast Minneapolis, throughout the Twin Cities and now on the national scene at the New Orleans Mardi Gras! 30+ years and going strong!
Silver Lake Symphonic Winds Walking Band Silver Lake Symphonic Winds is a community band founded in the summer of 2012.
