Mad Satta at BAMcafé Live
Mad Satta is at the forefront of a new movement in music. This exciting and sophisticated eight-piece band merges elements of old-school soul with hip-hop, rock, and jazz to create an intriguing sound that spans generations. Led by vocalist Joanna Teters and bassist Ben Carr, Mad Satta is coming up through the ranks fueled by hard work, passion, and a relentless drive to reach an ever-expanding audience. Teters confidently fronts the band with grace and depth of soul beyond her years, with her own musical roots deep in funk, reggae, and jazz. She is joined by the bass player and principle composer for the group, Ben Carr, keyboardist Kevin Theodore (Ever Forthright, Soul Understated), standout Connecticut guitarist Ted Morcaldi, and multi-instrumentalist and drummer Zane West. In June 2012, Mad Satta took its sound to the next level by adding Collin Wade on alto sax, Eric Zeiser on trumpet, and Jason Fitch on tenor sax. Mad Satta has since shared the stage with some notable musicians and musical acts, including Ozomatli, Afrika Bambaataa, Gretchen Parlato, and Taylor Eigsti.
