Early June

May 24th, 2011

I hope you all have a safe and restful memorial weekend! Make some live music viewing plans for the first week of June. Here are some ideas:

Wednesday, June 1st, my new Classic and Modern Country trio, Two Hicks and a Chick is playing at Maple Tavern, in Maple Grove, MN from 7pm-10pm. Come hear songs from artists like Lady Antabellum, Shania Twain, Johnny Cash, Linda Ronstadt and many more. Two Hicks and a Chick will be at the Maple Tavern the first 3 Wednesday’s of June! No Cover.

Friday, June 3rd, the main event of the summer: Martin Zellar’s NEIL! Tribute is reuniting at St. Paul’s finest, O’Gara’s Garage! It has been 5 long years since I shared the stage with Martin, and I can BARELY wait! Tickets are going fast, so click this link to purchase tickets. $10 bucks. Music at 9pm.

Saturday, June 4th, DRUNCH! is back at the Narrow’s Saloon in Wayzata MN. Okay, let’s get down to business, folks. Who doesn’t absolutely love day drinking? Is there anything better than stumbling out of a tavern in the late afternoon with the warm sun on your face?! Come hear Mimi Mimosa and Harvey Wallbanger sing all the hits you love from 11:30AM until 3:00PM! No Cover.

Monday, June 6th, my favorite show of the summer, Ali Gray Band will be playing at Peavey Plaza’s Alive After Five summer music series from 5pm-9pm. Skip out of work, and head straight to Peavey Plaza (located between Orchestra Hall and Brit’s Pub). It’s FREE! All ages! Plenty of street food and drink to keep you satisfied.

Plenty of more June shows where that came from. Check out my calendar page on my website for future dates!
