Wordsmith and the Temps
Your favorite Wesleyan 10+ piece hip hop band, complete with hard hitting horns, big bass lines, and a whole lot of soul. Light on the thug-posturing and acting cool, heavy on the love and the music. Josh “WordSmith” Smith brings the rhyme while Nate Mondschein, Steven Cooper, Dane Jackson, Will Monson, Donovan Arthen, Ryan Rodger, Ben Block, Myles Potters, Abaye Steinmetz-Silber, and Emma Daniels bring the funk. IF they all fit on the stage, that is.
Soul Kat Too
Solkattu: noun. South Indian rhythmic style
Soul kat: noun. A funky motherfucker
Too: adverb. Also.
They are soul kats. You can be a soul kat too. This is a brand spankin’ new funk band with Nate Mondschein, Spencer Hattendorf, Zack Rosen, Graham Richman, and Sam Friedman, featuring the vocal stylings of Garth Taylor. If you’ve ever seen these kids play before I don’t think I need to say anything more. If you haven’t… Well, the only thing I will add is that you should.
