"Joe was a Huge success when he performed at Valley City State, the students loved every song he sang. If they left they came back with friends to enjoy it as well. Joe is a fresh new sound to sit back and listen too and enjoy! "Once you have Joe on campus, be ready because the students will want to know when he is coming back!" - Kari Stricklin, Director Student Center/Student Activities

"Dickinson State University"

Joe worked out just great! He is personable and is able to get the kids interacting with him, a talent that most artist wish they had. Although he stood facing into the sun for over an hour, he gave a very good show. Thanks for the opportunity to have a fellow North Dakotan preform for us.
- Jacquetta Hancock, CAB, Dickinson State University - Dickinson, ND

"Anoka Ramsey Community College"

Joe was quite good, the audience started out slow but then warmed up and had a good time. Joe is very nice, easy to work with. I will definitely keep him in mind for next year. His covers are really awesome too....
- Cindi Gilbert, Director of Student Activities, Anoka Ramsey Community College - Cambridge, MN

"Normandale Community College - Bloomington, MN"

He isn’t finish yet, but the kid has a little somethin’-somethin’. I don’t believe our small room did him justice last year, or perhaps he was still green. This is probably the most engaged-I have seen our audience in the 9 years I have been year. He’s a keeper. - Chris Mikkelson, Director of Student Activities

"Saint Paul College - Saint Paul, MN"

Joe was great! Very laid back and easy to work with … great sense of humor. The variety of music he played appealed to just about everyone. We had a lot of great input from students and a few requests to bring him back…so we probably willJ He was very professional, on time, and again…great to work with. So far that has been our experience with all artists we have worked with you on…so keep up the great job recruiting such great talent - Lisa Christensen, Director of Student Life


Still working on that hot first release.



A fresh new face in the Midwest, Joe Dretsch is a soulful blend of talent and passion. A musician, singer, and songwriter from Frazee, Minnesota, Joe’s natural ability has captured audiences at hundreds of shows over the past few years. Add to the mix “utility guy” Bryan Loweree and you’ve got a dynamic duo that can go from waltzes to modern rock and back again. Sporting only acoustic guitars and a bare bones percussion set, Dretsch and Loweree draw crowds most full bands envy. Fresh off Midwest tours including colleges in Wyoming, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota, the duo have shared the stage with local favorites 32 Below, and national acts such as Ryanhood and Emerson Drive. Their laid back style, vocal harmonies and onstage joking resonate with country, pop, rock, and oldies fans alike.
