As usual in February we feature music with a focus on Rørosmartna, the 155 year old pre-Lenten winter market in Røros. Music and songs about the area, the season and the event from area musicians and habitual visitors to the event. Link to web-information: http://www.rorosinfo.com/index.jsp?CSL=en
Dan Daddy Squeeze Newton was my guest DJ this morning. In the big bag of great music he brought along was his new release Hi Top Sneakers. He’s having a CD release party on Wednesday, Feb. 13 at the Varsity Theater in Dinkytown. Doors open at 7:30 for the 8:00 show.
The Rockin’ Pinecones, one of Dan’s groups will be our guests at the 5th Annual Jackson’s Juke Joint Mardi Gras Party. The band reunited back in 2003 for our 1st Mardi Gras Party, which at that time was tied into the weekly series at the Viking Bar.
