Protige (Mark Koenigs) and Eboli (Jason Reinert) worked together as a DJ team for ten years before they became the DAD duo. Stemming from the want to make hip hop their full-time gig, they decided to give their DAD idea a shot and as they say, the rest is history.

"We usually write separately so when we get together with our DAD time that we have, we can record," explains Protige.

You can see them on the Abe Stage at Saturday in the Park this weekend.

 

Le Mars band, Goodbye Old Friend, have been writing together since early 2016. Alex Singer, the band's vocalist, and Colby Bishop, bassist, talk about their songwriting process and how their song Charlatan came together.

"We just try to write lyrics and write music that's gonna open people's eyes to their own lives and reflect upon themselves and start thinking about what's going on in the world in general," explains Jason Rhodes, the band's drummer.

Goodbye Old Friend will be playing on the Abe Stage at Saturday in the Park, next Saturday, July 1st.

Sioux City band, Stop Motion Skeletons, discuss their musical influences, songwriting process, and how they came up with their band name. 

"It's really hard to write music over already written lyrics. It's so much easier to write a melody that you really like and then listen to it over and over and over until you get lyrics to it," explained Shawn Fertig, the band's lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist.

SPM contributor Bertha Iniguez launches a new series that looks at 2nd stage performers at this year's Saturday in the Park Festival. First up, the "folk punk for angsty people" sound of Tapwater Shrimp. 

"Normally I just sit around and be sad on an acoustic guitar and then we make it real fast when we all meet up," Brinkerhoff says about Tapwater Shrimp's writing process.

The band released their new EP, Knife Game, on June 9th, with an album release show at Whiskey Dick's.
