MPLS provides concert goers an “experience”, as they combine just the right amount of original music with great covers that are infectious and make people dance. MPLS is fun, positive, upbeat, and their caliber of talent make them “a must see” for 2016″.

Sure, the name of the group proudly represents the band’s roots in the Minneapolis Sound, but trust me, #MPLS is taking that sound to a whole new level. I just happy to be able to say, ‘I knew them when …’”
