General B and the Wiz is an indie/psych rock band with a blues influence from Minneapolis, MN which initially started as a duo between college roommate Quincy Voris and Seth Duin in the fall of the 2009. After a couple years changing around the lineup, they eventually solidified the four-man lineup they are known for today.
In 2012, General B and The Wiz released their second full-length LP, Right in the Head. Recorded in Brewster's family's cabin in the Northern woods of Minnesota, Right in the Head features much of the indie blues that the band has become known for, with some added psychedelic-folk directions.
Currently, General B and The Wiz live in Minneapolis, Minnesota where they are busy writing and playing as many shows as possible in the surrounding states. Having played hundreds of shows to date, the band is hard at work writing, performing, and recording new music.
On October 29, 2013 General B and the Wiz released Lie Until You Prove It, a new 5- song EP. Recorded by Ben Durrant (Andrew Bird, Roma di Luna, Dosh) at Crazy Beast Studios in Minneapolis. Lie Until You Prove It blends eras of doo-wop with honest, creative rock and roll. General B and The Wiz have crafted an innovative and driving sound that still remains reminiscent of the bare indie-blues that the band has become known for, while never fearing to take their sounds in exciting new directions.
The Weathered Heads will open the show.
