The Fractals- Free Concert ( June 30 )

The Northland’s ‘Fractals’ are the region’s best Surf & Hot Rod show band. Specializing in guitar classics of the 50’s and early 60’s, The Fractals offer a much more exciting show than an ‘Oldies’ review. The dual vocals and surf-guitar attack thrill young and old with tributes to; The TrashmenThe Titans, The Fendermen and other Mid-west legends. The Fractals ‘down-shift’ easily to Roy Orbison, Buddy Holly, and Johnny Cash for older fans, but keep the energy and dynamics up for everyone. The presentation is always top-notch with matching shirts, amps, and fun rapport with the audience. In venues big and small, The Northland’s ‘Fractals‘ are an exciting musical experience!

THIS CONCERT IS FREE! Thank you everyone that has supported LWPAC for 25 years. Please email luciuswoods@lwmusic.org to receive your free tickets.

Copper Box ( July 14 )

Danny Jerabek (accordion, keys, percussion, vocals, cornet, sousaphone, etc.) and his wife, Michelle (Thull) Jerabek (bari saxophone, vocals, guitar, percussion, etc.) both started performing with their family on stage at an early age.  Once in their teens, they crossed paths again and eventually realized they were meant to be together.  They started writing songs and formed a band and the rest is history! The current line up includes the highly regarded talents of Dan Cable (drums, percussion) & Drew Hicks (bass, vocals, & guitar). For over 16 years the band has been pushing to keep this band on the road with the help of family, friends and fans. Copper Box has performed small, intimate shows to large, main stage festivals nationwide

As one music journalist commented, “(Copper Box)…as refreshing as a cool spring breeze blowing new life into a stuffy room…worth checking out!”

Bringing crowds to their feet at the hardest to please and sophisticated night clubs in the Midwest, Reverend Raven and the Chain Smoking Altar Boys play traditional blues, straight up with a big dose of passion. With smoking grooves, served up with hot harmonica and smooth stinging guitar they play original songs peppered with nods to Slim Harpo, Little Walter, Jimmy Rogers, Billy  Boy Arnold, Junior Wells and the three Kings.

The Whitesidewalls ( August 4 )

The Whitesidewalls Rock ‘n’ Roll Revue was founded in 1972 in Forest Lake, Minnesota. College classmates Pat Brown and Eric Satterlund discovered a mutual love for 50s and 60s music and decided to form such a group. The Whitesidewalls grew quickly in popularity and became a fixture of the Twin Cities music scene, appearing at ballrooms, bars, corporate and community events and celebrations throughout the 5-state area. They presented the Rock ‘n’ Roll Revue for many summers at the Valleyfair amusement park in Shakopee Minnesota, and were a part of the first Winter Dance Party revival (the annual event commemorating the last shows of Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and The Big Bopper at the Surf Ballroom) in Clear Lake Iowa in 1979, and have returned to perform many times at the February event. The Whitesidewalls have operated continuously since 1972 and carry on today, bringing the best of rock and roll, rockabilly and doo-wop from 1954 to 1964 (the “golden age of rock and roll”) to many thousands of friends, fans and dancers each year.

Pat “Hound Dog” Brown was a founder of the band and continues as bandleader today. He has a deep knowledge of the music of the era; it is his focused vision that has defined the show band. Pat plays guitar, bass, drums, keyboards and sings.

David “Swanee” Swanson became a Whitesidewall in the second year of the band’s existence. In addition to his role in the band, Dave has been active in the local recording scene for decades, performing at, producing and engineering many sessions in the region, where he is well-known by musicians and fans alike. Dave plays saxophone, guitar, keyboards and sings.

Brad “Gino Gambucci” Nelson joined The Whitesidewalls in 2009. He has performed in the Twin Cities for over 40 years and has been a part of many acts in the region in that time. He, too, has recording experience as a performer and engineer. Brad plays bass, keyboard, guitar and sings.

Bill “Bobby Maestro” Spalding joined The Whitesidewalls in 2010. Bill has performed for decades in the area and consequently is known in the musical community as a desirable sideman and vocalist. Bill plays keyboards, bass, guitar and sings.

Erik “Rocky Beaumont” Swenson became a Whitesidewall in 2011. He has worked extensively in the area for many years, performing on stage and doing recording session work and jingles. Erik is fully vested in the music industry, managing a music store in his “spare time”.  Erik plays drums, bass, guitar and sings.

The Whitesidewalls Rock ‘n’ Roll Review remains very active today. In addition to the many shows they play each year they also produce a weekly radio show hosted by Twin Cities disc jockey Michael Patrick “Records” Ryan, which is broadcast in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Florida and New Jersey and streamed online. They have also staged many performances of their 2-act musical play, “Love Potion #10”, around the region to great success. They have been inducted into the Mid-America Music Hall of Fame, the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame, and the Iowa Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They continue to thrive, and feel blessed that they can bring joy to their audience while doing something that they love.
