Blistering funk and dance music mixed with Soul, Blues, Americana, Jazz, Rock, and even a li”le Hip Hop — bringing the crowd to their feet every !me. Playing with acts like Dermot Kennedy, Robert Cray, Pert Near Sandstone, and many more. Mae has been a Nominee for City Pages “Best New Band and Best Live Concert” and going on to win City Pages Reader’s Choice Best New Band.

Mae Simpson‘s horn-laden soundcheck lures us to the Backwoods Stage for one of the most energetic and memorable performances of the weekend. The Twin Cities- based band led by astounding vocalist and namesake Mae Simpson bucks Blue Ox’s bluegrass-leaning tendencies with a lively blend of rock and roll, blues, folk that throws the couple hundred night owls looking on with us into an after hours frenzy.” – Milwaukee Record and Josh Hoppert
