Guest: Midwest Hype
Midwest Hype came of age in the early 2000’s in La Porte, IN when lead singer/guitarist George Matthew Prellowitz met drummer Max Kepler and bassist Nate Miller and began playing music together. The three of them all went on to go to Ball State Univeristy, where they met keyboard player Kevin Krismanich, saxophonist Ben Morrisey, & trumpet player Scott. Upon graduating, the band proceeded to embark on a grueling tour schedule, playing 150+ shows annually over the course of the next 5 years. In early 2010, emcee Justin “Ideal” Diehl joined the band, adding the perfect complement to the mixture of hip-hop, reggae, funk, and jazz that encapsulates the band.
