Pit Stop

Pit Stop, a band from Minneapolis, Minnesota, plays original tunes combining elements of Americana, Blues, Country, Folk, Rock, and a dash of Doo-wop. Experienced musicians and longtime contributors to the Twin Cities music scene, Pit Stop is Jake Balistrieri (vocals, guitar), James Patrick Horigan (guitar), Sarah Mevissen (vocals, guitar), Zack Warpinski (bass), and Gage Webster (drums).

Inspired by the sound and songwriting of Gram Parsons, Townes Van Zandt, Connie Francis, Canned Heat, The Flying Burrito Brothers, and The Velvet Underground, Pit Stop has a familiar yet singular sound. With captivating harmonies, lyrics balancing humor and heartache, a locked ‘n’ loaded rhythm section, and guitar solos that rip, Pit Stop guarantees a dynamic and entertaining live performance.

Their self-titled debut album, Pit Stop, was released on November 13, 2021, followed by a sold-out album release show at Eagles #34. Pit Stop is currently playing shows around town and writing their sophomore album.
