Northern Warehouse and neighboring artists and the Black Dog Café and the Lowertown Entertainment District to host a block party on the theme; “The End of the Line… is Just the Beginning!”
Featuring live music by:
Maurice Jacox band: 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 as well as the Secret Stash Soul Review and his trip to Cuba to sing with the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra and subsequent work with Nachito Herrera, you will be gifted a broad range of musical styles. With a mix of Jazz, Soul, R & B, Gospel and Standards, look forward to being transported by his rich vocal and swinging band.
The Brass Messengers: A Minneapolis/St. Paul sprawling fun factory of eleven musicians. Music of choice is anything that fits into the twisted brass tubing, from inspired originals, to "sing-a-longs" and “covers” from around the globe. Truly, a joyful noise.
