The Butanes: 8pm
Long a commanding presence on the Minneapolis blues/R&B scene, the Butanes began receiving numerous individual and group awards in the late 80’s. The early 90’s found the band holding down two house gigs that have since become a cherished part of local lore: the 10 strong Butanes Soul Revue brought southern soul to the Cabooze bar every Wednesday and the trio delivered Chicago blues to the 400 bar every Thursday. As the accolades piled up, local appearances became less frequent. The band could often be found playing behind luminaries around the world leading one New Orleans wag to dub them “the best band you’ve never heard of.” (site)
Maurice Jacox Group: 6pm
Multiple award winning singing legend, Maurice Jacox, has been on the Twin City music scene for over 45 years. From Willie and the Bees to the Butane Soul Review to Soul Tight Committee to the Straighten Up and Fly Right tribute to Nat King Cole, Maurice has a broad range of musical experience that illuminates in infiltrates each song he sings. With a mix of Jazz, Soul, R&B, Gospel, Pop, Roack and Big Band you are in for truly great night of music. (site)
