Elevating the Blues Experience

Beatdown Saints bring a fresh and dynamic edge to the blues. Drawing inspiration from the Black Crowes, Grateful Dead, and Gov’t Mule, their sound seamlessly blends hard-rocking Americana with jam band spontaneity. Known for their electrifying performances, dynamic range, and improvisational flair, the Beatdown Saints deliver a compelling mix of the old and the new. Their shows captivate audiences of all ages, making them an ideal choice to elevate any lineup with their unique energy and broad appeal.

The Players

The band is comprised of Mike Setzer (Magic Carpet Ride, Born to be Wild Tour) on bass and vocals, Todd Kasper (Smokin’ Js, Mind, Kiki Fabulous) on drums and vocals, and the extremely talented Marc Berger on guitar and vocals.

Mike Has played all across the United States in venues of all sizes with Magic Carpet Ride and The Born to be Wild Tour (Featuring the original keyboardist of Steppenwolf, Goldy McJohn), and he’s shared the stage with Mike Pinera (Blues Image, Iron Butterfly, Alice Cooper), Jack Russell (Great White), Johnny Stachela (Allman Betts Band), and Nelson.

Todd has played events all over the Pacific Northwest with the Smokin’ Js and was a founding member of the band Mind (with local bass hero Keith Lowe.) Todd has also been known to drum for Stonesy (Rolling Stones tribute) from time to time.

Marc is the insanely talented guitarist who’s idea it was to form Beatdown Saints.
