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 & Emmylou Harris, 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.

Pit Stop is currently writing their sophomore album, to be recorded early 2023.
