2/4/2008 Freewheelin'


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.

The 5th Annual Jackson's Juke Joint Mardi Gras Party takes place this Wednesday, February 6 at the 331 Club in Northeast Minneapolis. In addition to the Rockin' Pinecones we'll have music by Mr. Rolls, which includes the host of KFAI's Louisiana Rhythms Karl Smelker. Come on down, the Pinecones start at 7:00.

Concert alert: I'll be hosting a big showcase of musicians at the Cedar Cultural Center on Saturday, February 16. The performers include:
* Razz Russell The House of Mercy Band
* Nikki Matteson Her Ruemates
* The Copperheads
* Cooker John
* Summit Stunt Pilots with Mikkel Beckmen (Dave Babb Randy Webb of the Front Porch Swingin' Liquor Pigs with guest Mikkel Beckmen of the Brass Kings, Crush Collison Trio and Charlie Parr)

What a lineup....lots of roots, americana and bluesy stuff. Tell your friends. If we draw well, maybe the Cedar will let us do something more often. More information and tickets are available at: thecedar.org.
