Good Morning Bedlam is made up of Isaak Elker, Victoria Elker, Dawson Redenius, and Kat Seeger, and has become an innovative force in the midwest folk scene. Their shows are known for their contagious energy with band members careening about the stage. With tight, soaring, three-part harmonies and thumping kick-drum, they captivate their audience show after show. Every song is a unique twist on what is generally dubbed as folk music.
"We want to surprise our audience from song to song. Rather than creating our music to fit a genre, we allow it to be an outpouring of our own stories and unique sound," said GMB front man Isaak.
You will be treated to a haunting waltz, whistling, jazz scatting, and the euphoria of the violin melodies. When it comes to their lyrical storytelling, Isaak said, "Were desperate to connect to people through the common human experiences that we write about and the exuberance of our live show. People have a lot of choices of how theyll kick back, so we intend to deliver a show where they can be free to share in whatever they need to - joy, grief, anger, gratefulness, or bedlam!"
Good Morning Bedlam has become a staying force in the folk genre with a 200-plus show tour in 2019 before the COVID-19 shutdown, claiming the first-place title at the John Hartford Memorial Festival Band Competition, and being finalists at the NWSS Band Competition. Their shows are known for their wild energy and stunning harmonies. GMB has played at festivals alongside such artists as Shakey Graves, Sam Bush, Jason Isbell, The Infamous Stringdusters, and Trampled By Turtles. In 2021, GMB ran a successful Kickstarter for their much-anticipated third full-length record Lulu where fans from around the world pledged a total of $34,000. GMB has been featured in Bluegrass Today, Relix Magazine, Glide Magazine, and Paste Magazine. They are continuing to tour full-time in 2023 as they gear up to release an EP in late 2023.
