Equal XchangeThrow together some funk, hip-hop and rock, make it all live, add a dash of Duluth influence, and you get Equal Xchange. Rain “Ray the Wolf” Elfvin, formerly an MC in Crew Jones, raps in front of the melodies put down by guitarist Jesse Hoheisel, bassist Jason “Kokes” Kokal and drummer Mat Milinkovich. Rounding off the live experience, and this group of local music-scene veterans, are Aaron Hoffmeister and Brad Fernholz blasting on their saxophones. The group released its second album, Fair Game, in September.
