WXPR Concert Series: Mae Simpson

January 28 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Mae Simpson

Mae Simpson shook up the Twin Cities’ scene in 2019, winning Battle of the Bands and City Pages Reader’s Choice “Best New Band,” along with being named a nominee for “Best Live Concert”. Mae and her seven-piece band includes a horn section and blurs the lines between a wide range of influences, from the depth and energy of funk and rock, down to the melodic edge of R&B and folk. Led by Mae Simpson, who’s ‘…voice is larger than life — but not as large as her uncontainable energy that radiates from the stage.” Helen Teague – Minnesota Public Radio.

Known for their intense and exciting live shows, the band has an immediate impact that favors the human connection between the musicians and the audience. Opening up for acts like Dermot Kennedy, Karl Denson, Rubblebucket, Robert Clay, Langhorn Slim, Pert Near Sandstone and playing many notable stages across the Midwest like First Ave. Main Room, The Fillmore MPLS, Basilica Block Party, and Blue Ox. If you are a fan of artists such as Alabama Shakes, Lake Street Dive and Bruce Springsteen, Mae Simpson is right up your alley.
