Mark Joseph was Inspired and forever changed by witnessing the virtuosity of “The King of Blues” (BB King). Shortly after he was gifted his first guitar in 1991, at the ripe age of 10. The subsequent decades, two thousand plus live shows, five full-length albums and multiple EP’s, have permanently written Mark Joseph into the sonic history he was inspired by so many years ago. Yet the blues was the common thread throughout for this Minnesota born singer, songwriter, and guitarist.

“Joseph shows not only his ability to tell a good story but also shows versatility moving easily from one style to the next. He isn’t content to remain in one genre and he excels no matter what style he chooses for a song.” ~ Americana Highways

Mark is also a full-time member of The Big Wu, Momentary Lapse of Floyd and various other projects.

Smokin' Joe Scarpellino is a songwriter based in the Twin Cities, present throughout the Minneapolis jam band scene. He's known for collaborating with a wide array of musicians and bringing them together for various music projects and being the man behind the Galactic Get-Down music festival in southern Minnesota. He also produces his own "Smokin' Joe Show" regularly on Facebook live.
