The Mae Simpson band is pure energy and soul. The singer-songwriter Mae who hails from South Carolina, has a huge voice and stage presence. She has brought together a collective of seven musicians who each bring a unique flavor to this powerhouse group. Formed in the fall of 2017, Mae Simpson Band have built a broad collection of original music that refuses to fall neatly into a single genre. Blistering funk and dance music mixed with soul, blues, country, calypso, jazz, rock, and even a little hip hop — bringing the crowd to their feet every time. In the spring of 2018 the band won the Battle of the Blues Bands at Famous Dave’s and opened the Lowertown Blues Festival. Since that time Mae has been a Nominee for  City Pages “Best New Band and Best Live Concert” . Going on to WIN City Pages Reader’s Choice Best New Band. From playing at First Avenue to Dakota Jazz the band can also be seen at a range of music festivals and venues in the region. The band features: Mae Simpson. Drummer- Aaron Silverstein. percussionist- Ricardo J. Romero, Sax- Keaton Judy. Trumpet – Paul Pederson, bass- David Kellermann.  guitar- Jorgen Wadkins.

“Mae’s powerful voice has remnants of Janis Joplin and Ella Fitzgerald, tied together with a rasp of Joan Jett. Brought together by an extremely talented and passionate band, Mae Simpson Music is a ticking timebomb for breaking into the national array of local artists to make it “big.” – Richard Dollarhide (Music in Minnesota)
