The 21st Night of September!

by Quincy Voris


Hey everyone! 

Summer has ended but exciting things are in store for General B and the Wiz this fall.

The recording that we did with Ben Durrant at Crazy Beast Studios has come to a close and I can happily say that we are proud of our work. We have a few things to wrap up before we can get the material into your hands/computers/iPods, but this month we are having a single release party September 21st at the Kitty Cat Klub in Minneapolis. We are in the process of making new t-shirts and merch for this fall as well-- keep in touch on the internet and you'll find out all about it!

As Summer comes to a close, we've begun our fall touring playing various shows and festivals around the Midwest, including Adventure Camp Music Festival. It was really exciting for me to relive my middle school years and perform at a festival whose headliner was the Nappy Roots. (Ah nah hell nah!) I also had a great time visiting with my family from Alaska this July, meeting up at Decorah’s Nordic Fest. Our acoustic show at Toppling Goliath was fun as always, and we had a fantastic time performing on their patio.

We're ready for the 21st Night of September!! We look forward to seeing many of you at the Kitty Cat Klub in Minneapolis for our single release party this weekend!

It's been a little over a year...

by Quincy Voris


It’s been a little over a year since Seth, Erik and I graduated from Luther College. The three of us have since then met up with Kevin and Kai and moved into a house together in St. Paul, MN. The lot of us have been working in various non-profit jobs, and gigging on weeknights and out of town on the weekend. We’ve had an amazing year in the twin cities, and have met many great bands and people in the scene playing around 70 shows since last May, including teaching one of the "Artist and Industry" courses at McNally Smith School of Music. This class  provided me a chance to think about what it means to be an artist, and why exactly we are writing for this band. We are now all able to put on our resume that we are "visiting professors."
