    white-sidewalls-2017

    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.(more…)

    Layne Yost pays faithful tribute to the timeless, still-popular music of John Denver on Sat., Jan. 12, at 7:30 p.m. Crossings brings, “Tribute to the Music of John Denver,” to the State Theatre.

    Jon Shimoda, bass, and Carol McDowall, fiddle, accompany Yost’s pure vocals and guitar playing in this homage to the music and the man. They capture the simple soul of Denver's music. Woven within the music are stories that give insight into Denver's life and legacy.

    Denver is best known for songs like, “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” “Annie’s Song,” “Sunshine on My Shoulders,” and “Thank God I’m a Country Boy,” along with other hits. A common theme in his lyrics was his enjoyment of the natural world. He was one of the most popular and best-selling acoustic artists of the 1970s, and his songs were hits on several charts, including the Billboard Hot 100, country and western, and adult contemporary. He earned four platinum albums and 12 gold albums during his career.(more…)

    When Hap Anderson, a widowed 83-year-old Minnesota farmer that thinks he’s still quite the ladies’ man, sells his family farm, he finds himself adrift and staring a short future in the face. Driven by the possibility of showing up with an old flame and impressing his old army buddies, he sets out to attend his 65th WWII reunion in California with his directionless and unreasonably self-confident granddaughter, Ashley. Each with their own issues and agendas, they head west in a dilapidated Winnebago.

    Get ready for a night full of great songs from artists that Nashville artist Jeff Dayton has worked with over the years, legends such as Glen Campbell, Johnny Cash & Willie Nelson. It’s a show full of uptempo fun and memories, strong guitar playing and skilled backing musicians. Presented by Crossings at the State Theatre on Fri., May 17, at 7:30pm.

    From the White House to the Grand Ole Opry, Jeff Dayton has been playing guitar and performing all his life. He’s a Nashville producer and writer and loves the concentrated creative scene in Music City. His hometown roots in Minnesota and years in Arizona earned him the job of bandleader with Hall of Fame artist Glen Campbell for fifteen years. He also found time to land his music degree, regional hit records and the honor of backing artists including Vince Gill, Willie Nelson, Toby Keith, Buck Owens, Tracy Byrd, Bo Diddley, Dizzy Gillespie, Gene Autry, Mac Davis and many more. Once arriving in Nashville, Jeff focused on writing and producing, but because of his reputation and guitar skills, was soon touring with megastar Kenny Chesney, Lee Greenwood, Sarah Darling, Tammy Cochran and others.(more…)

    Terry Lee Goffee has been a Johnny Cash fan since he was 8 years old. His long-running admiration for the music and the man is apparent in his performance as Cash in “The Ultimate Tribute to Johnny Cash,” brought by Crossings to the Zumbrota State Theatre on Fri, June 28, at 8 p.m.

    Goffee does more than play the music or “impersonate” Cash: like an actor in a play, he becomes his character from the moment he walks on stage until the end of the show. He plays the music so well audiences and reviewers rave. He plays the man so well, he was chosen to provide the moves for a Cash character on the Guitar Hero 5 video game.

    He looks like Cash. He sounds like Cash. He moves like Cash--Nobody does Johnny Cash like Terry Lee Goffee.

    Audiences will revel in 34 Cash songs, including classic such as “A Boy Named Sue,” “Sunday Morning Coming Down,” “I Walk The Line,” “Ring Of Fire, “Folsom Prison Blues,” and “Hurt.”(more…)

    Johnny RogersJohnny Rogers will transport his audience back in time when you could go to your favorite malt shops with your favorite girl and dance to your favorite bands. “Buddy & Beyond: The History of Rock ’n Roll” is a tribute to the music of the legends of rock ’n roll.

    His show will start with Rogers’ uncanny portrayal of Buddy Holly and go on with tributes to legends Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis,Ricky Nelson and Chuck Berry. The show climaxes with his portrayal of the King himself, Elvis Presley.

    Performing on stage with some of the biggest names in the business and entertaining for four U.S. presidents, among his many fans Rogers is already considered by many to be one of the best entertainers on today’s music scene.

    His stage presence echoes the king of rock ’n roll and his guitar licks blend the skills of Chet Atkins and Jimi Hendrix. Rogers was nominated for best show in Branson, Mo. in 2009 and 2010, and Branson critic Gary Wackerly says he’s the best entertainer he’s seen in his 25 years.(more…)

    It's been 50 years since Woodstock attracted 400,000 people to a farm in upstate New York to listen to music by such artists as Janis Joplin, Joe Cocker, the Band, Sly and the Family Stone and the first live performance of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. Over the course of three days, the world changed as the peace-loving, hippy culture took root in the American consciousness. Sure careers were launched in those three days and the event was historic and unprecedented in scope. But more importantly, the possibility that people could come together and live peacefully, caring for one another and helping each other, created a feeling of optimism as the 1970's began. On October 4th, musicians from a large number of different bands all around Minnesota will join together and play the most iconic songs from that weekend. Who knows? Maybe we'll spark a renewed sense of optimism that peace can be had yet in our lifetime.

    Thomasina Petrus has created a very special piece of musical cabaret celebrating the life and influence of Billie Holiday. With the unthinkable ability to capture the vocal and physical (abilities) of “Lady Day”, Thomasina takes us on a scintillating audible history that eventually ends with the discovery of Thomasina’s own incredibly unique and powerful voice. Her story of discovering Billie when she was young is a fascinating and highly entertaining piece of cabaret. Full of humor and emotional realness, audiences of any age come to understand the impact music and culture have on every generation and how we are all continually linked to our past. Thru a musical timeline of artists impacted by Billie Holiday including Bessie Smith, Louise Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James and more, Thomasina celebrates the history of each of these beautiful black women and men who inspired and influenced Jazz and it’s origins, while incorporating the American history that shaped (it).
