Born in Duluth, MN and raised in South Texas, Joshua Lassi got his start singing in various garage bands in High School and College. He didn't pick up a guitar until the age of 20 and quickly worked to learn how to play. After just 6 months of playing he was booking shows with good friend Nate Plaunt as the duo Joshie and The Kid. The guitar was rough but he would keep practicing his trade for the next several years. After moving to the St. Croix Valley/Hudson area, he was able to book a regular solo show at the Twisted Grill. Josh has been a staple in Hudson on Thursday nights ever since the fall of 2006. Now playing a regular Thursday show at Ellie's on Main in Hudson, Josh plays all across the St. Croix Valley and Eastern Minnesota area. He also tours the many other parts of both Minnesota and Wisconsin with his super fat rock band "The New Skinny". Josh loves what he does and it shows when he plays. He is influenced by the likes of Better Than Ezra, Jack Johnson, Oasis, Johnny Cash and many others. He gets a bit yappy on the microphone and has been know to belittle hecklers and "overconfident" females....it's all in good fun and if he's good for one thing it's usually a good laugh.
