Mad Satta is a rapidly rising Soul/R&B group comprised of some of the tri-state areas most promising young musicians. Founded by vocalist Joanna Teters and up-and-coming bass player, Ben Carr in 2010; Mad Satta is an 8 piece band that combines the sounds of old school soul music with hip-hop, rock, and jazz to create an original sound that has been turning heads since its inception.
Joanna Teters, a student at Berklee College of Music, is a brilliant vocal stylist with roots in jazz, blues, reggae and pop music. She has been selected as a featured soloist with the incredible “Rhythm of the Universe” project, and has performed extensively in Boston, New York, and Puerto Rico. She is joined by bass player and principle composer for the group, Ben Carr, keyboardist Kevin Theodore (Ever Forthright, Soul Understated), standout Connecticut guitarist Ted Morcaldi, and drummer Zane West. In June of 2012 Mad Satta added a funky horn section that features Collin Wade (alto, soprano sax), Jason Fitch (tenor sax) and Eric Zeiser (trumpet). Having already appeared at venues such as The Bitter End, 92 Y Tribeca, Café 939, The Bowery Electric and The Falcon, this band is destined for a bright future.
