Minocqua Brewing Company,238 Lakeshore Dr
Saturday, April 4, 2015 8:00 pm

In the summer of 2011, while working in the same restaurant, Bryan, Greg,and Trevor discussed forming a band. Alongside Trevor's roommateHarrison, the four of them jammed together a couple of times and wrotesome songs. In September they performed their first performance,proclaiming themselves as Tin Can Gin. Over the next 11 months Tin CanGin held gigs in various venues around the state of Minnesota, including Duluth's Pizza Luce and The Fine Line Music Cafe' in Minneapolis.In May 2013, they added Nori to the lineup thus filling out the sound of the band.

Tin Can Gin’s unique sound draws from each member’s personal backgrounds:from Harrison's traditional bluegrass upbringing, Trevor's ska and reggae beginnings, Bryan's classic rock and folk backgrounds, Nori'sceltic melodies and Greg's funky bass, you're sure to find a soundemitted that tickles your musical palate. This hurricane stew of influence brings out a style of music that is as bitter and sweet as the best IPA's out there.Tin Can Gin is currently recording their debut album at Musicality Studios in Duluth, MN.

THE McCARTNEY YEARS (7:00 pm)

THE McCARTNEY YEARS
Campanile Center For the Arts, 141 Milwaukee Street
Wednesday, April 8, 2015 7:00 pm,
 Doors open at 6:30 pm

The Premiere Paul McCartney Concert Experience.

 There are many Beatles tributes.  But there’s only one show that celebrates the genius of Paul McCartney at the height of his career in the mid 1970s.  And this is it!

 Praised by Beatles promoter Sid Bernstein – the guy who brought the original Beatles to North America – as “the best on the scene today”, The McCartney Years is a note-for-note faithful recreation of a mid 1970s Paul McCartney concert.

 Led by perfectionist Yuri Pool as Sir Paul, the band has a commitment to 100% live and accurate reproductions of McCartney’s concert experience.   The show is period-true, technically stunning and sonically explosive. Every note is live and played true to its original arrangement.  It has set the standard for all who might follow in this significant body of work. And….it’s a blast to watch and listen to!

 Whether he’s playing a real McCartney-style Hoffner bass or sporting the same wardrobe from the “Wings over America” mid-70s tour, Yuri is true to Sir Paul in his musicianship, vocal stylings and presentation. And the band doesn’t miss a beat delivering a texture that will transport you back to the first time you heard these great songs on vinyl. TMY players include David Usselman (guitars and bass); Braden DeCooman (guitars); Darryl Lahteenmaa (keyboards and synth); Karen Bell (percussion and keyboards; Aaron Gueverra (drums) and of course Yuri on bass, vocals, piano and guitar.

 Experience three decades of ‘The Beatles’ and ‘Wings’ live – with the world’s premier McCartney concert experience. Rewind into the 60s and 70s to dance, sing and relive your passion for McCartney with a band that has opened for Mariah Carey, performed sold-out shows across Canada and been featured on CNN.

Hobo Nephews Of Uncle Frank- Folk Rock W/Special Guest Ryan Young (8:00 pm)

Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank- Folk Rock W/Special Guest Ryan Young
Minocqua Brewing Company,238 Lakeshore Dr
Saturday, April 11, 2015 8:00 pm

The Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank's critically acclaimed 2007 album Sing! will be remembered as a landmark recording in the roots music resurrection happening in Minnesota.  The recording is mostly live and raw, the playing sharp and dirty and the songs are as emotional and bold as they are vivid and well crafted.  The Hobo Nephews new album Traveling Show (release Sept 1, 2009) is a confident and exciting evolution of the same formula as the road hardened trio of drummer Paul Grill and the brother songwriting team of Ian and Teague Alexy eloquently trace the emotional ups and downs of life on the road over a roller coaster of dirtyroadhouse stomps, visceral ballads, rock n' roll burners, country-bluesshuffles and most things in between.   Most bands lack a strong singer/songwriter with originality or true grit.  Hobo Nephews is there are group that can boast having two songwriters of style and substance.

The Alexy brothers grew up in the New Jersey shore town of SomersPoint - the town where Bob Dylan hired The Band before Ian and Teague were born.  A simple twist of fate brought them to Dylan's hometown of Duluth, Minnesota where they started the band as a duo in 2005 with are volving cast of musicians helping them celebrate their original songs alongside inspired renditions of Leadbelly, Mississippi John Hurt and most importantly Woody Guthrie.   They did their first tour to the rocky mountains in a Honda Civic hatchback in which they survived the 10,000foot I-70 mountain pass in the middle of a blizzard.

The Hot Club Of Cowntown (7:00 pm)

The Hot Club Of Cowntown
Campanile Center For The Arts, Milwaukee
Wednesday, April 29, 2015 7:00 pm
    
Since its beginnings in the late 1990s, Hot Club of Cowtown’s star has continued to rise as its reputation for jaw-dropping virtuosity and unforgettable live shows has become the band’s global brand. Lauded for its “down-home melodies and exuberant improvisation” (The Times, London), the Hot Club has always woven a combination of seemingly disparate styles together to its own magical effect, setting up camp “at that crossroads where country meets jazz and chases the blues away” (The Independent), and “conscious always that above all else, the music is for dancing and an old-fashioned good time” (New York Times). The band’s musical alchemy has been described as “another breathless journey in the Texas tardis” (The Times, London), while American Songwriter observed that “The excellent three players of this band could be doing anything but have chosen to honor the greats of jazz and swing with their sound.” The Belfast Telegraph calls them “a pretty much perfect country trio at the very top of their game,” while the New York Times, reviewing a live performance in New York City in 2011, describes the trio as armed with “an arsenal full of technique and joy.”


Along with the Hot Club’s dedicated cult following worldwide — they have toured for the U.S. State Department as musical ambassadors to Azerbaijan, Armenia, the Republic of Georgia and the Sultanate of Oman — certain titans of the industry have also taken notice. Bob Dylan, with whom the band toured and with whom James has toured and recorded, is a continuing inspiration. The Hot Club has opened several shows for Willie Nelson, toured with Nelson and Dylan during a summer-long stadium tour, and recently opened seven nights of Roxy Music’s sold-out “For Your Pleasure” U.K. stadium tour in early 2011. In the U.K. the Hot Club of Cowtown continues to tour extensively and has been featured at the Glastonbury Festival and has also been a returning guest on Later With Jools Holland, the Cambridge Folk Festival, and BBC Radio 2’s Radcliffe and Maconie and Bob Harris Country shows.

This group has been recently nominated for the 2015 Ameripolitan Music Awards for Western Swing Group - to be awarded on February 17th. Let's wish them luck!!
