Catalyst

Chad Hassel/Lead Vocals/Manager

 I have a BS in Early Childhood Ed/Development, but left teaching to work where the insurance was better, currently at Digi-Key. I spent 14 year in the Army Guard with a deployment in Iraq. I have twin boys and enjoy music and anything involved with it. Influences are most 80’s bands and Gordon Lightfoot; but musical ability, if I have any, came from my mom.


Pat Sagsveen/Guitar/Lead Vocals 

I have a BA in music performance and an associate’s degree in electronics and telecommunications. I currently work at Digi-Key and am engaged. Most of my musical influences came from rock, funk, classical music, jazz, and reggae. I have been gigging for about 9 years and plan to continue as long as my body lets me.


Trent Olslund/ Bass/Guitar/Vocal   

I am a self-taught multi-instrumentalist. I play bass guitar, acoustic guitar, mandolin, ukulele, dulcimer and banjo. If it has strings I will give it a go. I went to school classical guitar performance and music education. My musical influences are Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Leo Kotke, Scott Huckabay, Bach Beethoven, Mozart and Palestrina.  


Nathan Salverson/Guitar/Vocals 

I am a self-taught guitar player and single father of two boys and have been playing in bands on and off for 20 years. I enjoy music from all genres, but my main musical tastes and influences are classic rock, hard rock, and heavy metal.


Derek Rud/Percussion 

I am self- taught drummer and guitar player (only play drums in the band). I enjoy most all genres of music, but mostly rock n’ roll, blues, rockabilly, some older country and even some jazz, gypsy jazz & zydecho/cajun. I have been playing drums since I was 19 years old. I have played in 3 different bands and have also done some recordings with my brother, (thou art in heaven) who was a singer songwriter and musician of “The Roulette County Bandits” on the east coast. I also would play music with him and my dad for enjoyment. My professional drummer influences are Stewart Copeland, Dave Grohl, Buddy Rich, Vinnie Paul, John Bonham, Ryan Vikedal, Phil Rudd, Kenny Aronoff, Tommy Lee, Brad Wilk, Chad Smith, David Garibaldi, Bill Ward, and numerous others… 


Mason Roberts/Sound and lighting Tech 

Curiosity may have killed the cat but it only fostered my growth and love for Electronics. From an early age anything having to do with electronics fascinated me. At the age of 18 I was professionally installing, repairing, high end home and car audio equipment. In 2015 obtained an associate degree in wired/wireless electronic technologies and after accepting a technical position at my current place of work. Quickly I began to specialize in lighting technologies where my love for music and electronics merged.
