Mad Satta is a rapidly rising soul/jazz group comprised of some of the tri-state areas most talented young musicians, founded by vocalist Joanna Teters and upcoming jazz bass player, Ben Carr.
Joanna Teters, a student at Berklee College of Music, is a brilliant vocal stylist with roots in jazz, blues, reggae and pop music. She is backed by bass player and principle composer for the group Ben Carr, stand-out Connecticut guitarist Ted Morcaldi, drummer Zane West and Kevin Theodore (Ever Forthright) on keyboards. With their recent addition of a horn section (Collin Wade on alto saxophone, Eric Zeiser on trumpet, and Jason Fitch on Tenor saxophone), the band is taking the New York music scene by storm with recent performances at venues such as The Bitter End, 92 Y Tribeca, and The Falcon.
