General B and The Wiz

General B and The Wiz are an adventurous band collectively out of Decorah, IA, Minneapolis, MN, and Eagle River Alaska. By stretching rock to different ends of a sonic spectrum, they are consistently elaborating their sound to provide a new twist on indie blues.

As the band strives to make music as enjoyable for an audience as it is for themselves, they have crafted a genre described anywhere from "dancey," and "bluesy," to delicately musical or sometimes gritty . While their original music varies around these terms, their influences range from the 1700's to the 1960's, to 2013. Having performed with countless local and nationally touring acts, their unique sound has let them enjoy sharing the stage with just about any genre.

"While their sound is indeed evocative of bands like The Black Keys, Cream, The White Stripes, Led Zeppelin, and The Doors; it's their flawless execution and songwriting prowess that jumps out and rattles your cage like a good rock band should."
