Saturday, July 9th, 6:00 – 7:30 pm: Kiss the Tiger
Kiss the Tiger pounced onto the Twin Cities’ music scene in late-2016 and have been making big waves ever since. Inspired by the sounds and energy of The Rolling Stones, Tom Petty, and Patti Smith, Kiss the Tiger has breathed new life into 21st century rock and roll. Their EP “Elliot Park” was released in November of 2017. In 2019 Kiss the Tiger released their sophomore album “Let Me Bleed”. “Vicious Kid”, released June 3rd, 2021, marks Kiss the Tiger’s 3rd full-length LP, and 2nd full-length studio album. Star Tribune named “Vicious Kid” one of the Best Minnesota Albums of 2021 so far.
Saturday, August 13th, 6:00 – 7:30 pm: Good Morning Bedlam
Good Morning Bedlam has become an innovative force in the midwest folk scene. Their shows are known for their contagious energy, with members careening about the stage. With tight soaring three part harmonies, and thumping kick-drum, they captivate their audience night after night. Every song is a unique twist on what is generally dubbed as folk music. In 2021 GMB ran a successful Kickstarter in July of 2021 for their much anticipated third full-length record ‘Lulu’ where fans from around the world pledged a total of $34,000. GMB has been featured on Bluegrass Today, Relix Magazine, Glide Magazine, Entertainment Tonight, and Under the Radar Magazine.
Saturday, September 10th, 6:00 – 7:30 pm: Jaedyn James
Jaedyn James is a powerhouse singer, songwriter, bandleader, and master of the stage. Her songwriting draws from the styles of Janis Joplin, Prince, Amy Winehouse, and Sharon Jones. Her sound can be best described as Midwest Soul and her band packs a punch. Audiences everywhere are touched by Jaedyn’s story and wowed by her talent. Don’t miss a Jaedyn James show.
Seating will be first come, first served general admission. Bring your own lawn chair or blanket to sit on in the park! Each concert will be $15 per ticket, with youth under age 12 free (but ticket reservation still required).
