Porky’s Groove Machine
Purple Funk Metropolis

Three funky bands takeover the Hook stage for a night of soulful high-energy fun.
Porky’s Groove Machine has been getting both funky and silly since the fall of 2011. While their costumes and sense of humor show their willingness to not take themselves too seriously, their dedication to high-energy and high-entertainment performances is anything but laughable. With classic covers, quirky originals, and synchronized dance moves (for band and audience alike), their live shows are a delight for crowds of all ages.
Purple Funk Metropolis is a charismatic seven-piece instrumental band with a raw sound inspired by soul, jazz, funk, and more. Their origins trace back to jazz classes at the University of Minnesota. They recorded their first EP Morsels in 2017 and have continually been performing, recording, and rehearsing since, which has allowed for their sound to mature and evolve.  The new album The Golden Goose is out now.
Radiochurch is a soulful pop group based in Minneapolis.  Their honest, feel good music has been making waves in the Twin Cities. Each member brings their own unique perspective and style, creating a fluid and dynamic experience that lends itself to any music lover. Their most recent release The Love EP is a charming collection of love songs that have a nostalgic “mixtape for your crush” vibe.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
