KFAI is proud to sponsor the Butanes Soul Revue's 26th Anniversary show, Friday, December 27th at the Minnesota Music Cafe in St. Paul
The Butanes Soul Revue was formed in December of 1987 when the Butanes added three horns, three vocalists and played a set of deep soul for a Christmas extravaganza at the Cabooze bar in Minneapolis. The show was a success and the Cabooze presented the Butanes Soul Revue every Wednesday for the next five years. Wednesdays at the Cabooze soon became known as the place where "the hip slip to sip" and a general party atmosphere developed.
Thru the years. The Butanes have also backed up numerour blues legends including Percy Sledge, Eral King, Pinetop Perkins, Betty Lavette, and Bo Diddley.
