We would like to take this opportunity to invite everyone to our annual fundraiser. We will be back from Nicaragua to visit all of you & share about the work we have been doing for the past year. This benefit will help to raise money for us to continue working with the children in both urban and rural communities in Nicaragua.
We are excited to boogie with some of the greatest bands in the Twin Cities, seriously guys, THANK YOU!
The Rich Lewis Band plays a soulful mix of R&B, New Orleans and Motown. This blend of musical styles creates an infectious sound that makes you want to stomp your feet or shed a tear.
Take a sneak peak at what you are in for listening to this awesome group! In the words of Earl King,
“Society has no priority, were all one part of a whole.
When people scream and shout, you hafta hear em out. Everybody is a beautiful soul.
You gotta pull together, go hand in hand. You really got to do your best.
Wouldn’t it be a perfect sight to see: the whole world filled with happiness.”
Back for their second year, we are more than excited to welcome this four piece, bluesabilly band, The Abiders!
The band members are equally entertaining as they are talented. They have great chemistry both on and off stage and play lively originals and covers. Julie Weisenhorn writes the original songs full of relatable lyrics and adds a driving rhythm acoustic and vocals that can be sweet-as-pie one minute, and soulfully bluesy the next. From Liverpool, England, Doug Molland plays the perfect gritty vintage bluesman, pulling off licks and lyrics that harken back to Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters and Howling Wolf. In the true blues harp tradition, Karl Weisenhorn presents his own style making you think of such heros as Junior Wells, Norton Buffalo and Paul Butterfield. Rick Anderson keeps the groove going on stand up bass, and his vocals have that great rockabilly twang that makes the crowd go wild.
Last year was a blast, we had a full day of dancing and fun with our family, friends, and community! We want to thank you all for of the wonderful memories. Here are a few photos…
