Aug 1 Minnesota Barking Ducks Perform at the Grand Kabaret!

For over 30 years the Fabulous Minnesota Barking Ducks have brought a driving, diverse, blues-based music to the Twin Cities and all points between. Two members of the band have enjoyed the trip for the entire time: David "Burnie" Benson has steady laid down his distinctive, back-of-the-beat feel on drums; and Mic McCormick has forever silenced crowds with his phenomenal, oh-so-tasty guitar. Mic tells stories with that thing, and most people listen.

The "new" members have been Ducks for a little less than a decade. Ed Dunn plays bass and sings. Ed is intense, and plays deep in the pocket with Burnie, the two of them laying down a regular roadmap. Kit Kildahl sings and plays guitar and occasional harp. Kit has known Mic and Burnie since '75, when he was playing with the Dust Bowl Blues Band and Ace in the Whole.

These guys have a lot of music to draw on, so the result is a wide-ranging songlist--blues of course; but also rock, R & B, and jazz standards like "Fly Me to the Moon".

Johnson Park in New Ulm is home to the New Ulm Brewers of the Tomahawk East League. New Ulm is also known for its quality amateur baseball with the Kaiserhoff, and the ball park is just blocks away from the historic downtown. Johnson Park is a great place to check out a ball game."

Aug 8 Stephanie Nilles Performs at the Grand Kabaret

Chicago-born jazz/punk/barrelhouse musician Stephanie Nilles has been doin' Kesey proud one bar at a time since 2008, hustling around the United States, Europe, and Canada (except from 2009-2010 for legal reasons), averaging 150 gigs a year, and captivating unsuspecting listeners with a voice that would make Jelly Roll Morton look orthodox and Ma Rainey look sober.

Having studied piano and cello since the age of six, she was a finalist at the Young Concert Artists' International Competition, a gold medalist at the Fischoff Competition, and had performed on NPR on three separate occasions by the age of seventeen. At twenty-two, she had graduated from the Cleveland Institute of Music with a degree in classical piano performance and temporarily relocated to New York City, where she began writing songs and performed regularly on the east village anti-folk scene.

She has since sung with Bobby McFerrin in Carnegie Hall, directed the musical program of a Brooklyn burlesque series, covered Busta Rhymes' "Break Ya Neck" in the skeletal remains of a bombed-out cathedral in Nuremberg, been invited to perform official showcases at SXSW and International Folk Alliance, and self-released 4 full-length albums, two of which were picked up for European release by German roots/blues label Tradition und Moderne (Taj Mahal, John Fahey).

When Stephanie's not sleeping in her car, she lives in New Orleans, which might not be the best idea.

Aug 11 Alice Lind Play Reading Society
August 11: A Member of the Wedding by Carson McCullers
 

Plays are selected with the criteria that they are great pieces of literature and contain universal truths and/or significant themes. Many of the selections have won Tony Awards or Pulitzer prizes for literature. Suggestions are always welcome for the following season.

Volunteers will be asked to read parts throughout the evening. Depending on attendance, the leading roles may be read by several people for each act or scene. Persons attending do not have to read or may request smaller roles to read. Suggestions from the public for future plays are strongly encouraged. Contact Paul Warshauer at (507) 359-9990.

The Society meets on the Second Tuesday of each month and is dedicated to the idea that reading and listening to plays allows the participants to understand the words and themes of the author more clearly than in some performances. The series is named after the former Governor’s wife, Alice Lind, a supporter of social causes and literacy.  To make reservations, please leave a name and phone number on the voice mail at the NUACT office phone (507) 359-9990 along with how many will be in your party.  For more information about the play reading options contact Paul Warshauer (507) 359-9990. For more information about the Lind House, please contact Trudy Beranek at (507) 354-8802.  If you would like to be on the monthly mailing list, please email us at execdir@newulmact.com

Aug 15 Jeff Braegelmann & Guest Performs at the Grand Kabaret!
Singer and guitarist Jeff Braegelmann plays authentic story songs from the vault. His performance is direct, simple, and heart-felt, delivered with respect for the songs and his listeners. Jeff sings classic folk, country and other American tunes by Axton, Tubb, Cash, Dylan, Prine, Waller, Ives, Husky, Pierce, Miller and others. Jeff's strongest musical influence has been Johnny Cash, and Jeff performs regularly with Bob Wootton, Cash's lead guitarist of 30 years. Jeff doesn't sing what you hear on the radio. He'll introduce you to beautiful tunes you haven't heard and reintroduce you to beautiful tunes you may have forgotten you love.

Please enter Door 6 and take the elevator to Floor 3. For more information, visit newulmsuzuki.org. The Suzuki method originated in Japan, where Dr. Shinichi Suzuki taught the art of playing the violin to young children by combining a music teaching method with a philosophy which embraces the total development of the child. Suzuki Talent Education is so named because Dr. Suzuki?s philosophy was founded on the belief that every child could learn, and music study was for everyone, not just for those who exhibited signs of talent. He also believed that a positive learning environment would also help to foster excellent character in every student.

Aug 21 Sidewalk Cafe Performs at the Grand Kabaret!

Minneapolis-St. Paul ensemble Sidewalk Café plays the music popularized by guitarist Django Reinhart and legendary jazz violinist Stephane Grappelli of the Hot Club of France in 1930s Paris. This swinging music is a favorite of all ages and is making a major comeback. The three members of Sidewalk Cafe include Prairie Home Companion veteran Gary Schulte, one of this country’s top jazz violinists; jazz guitar virtuoso Reynold Philipsek, a favorite of jazz great Pat Martino; and bassist Jeff Brueske, who is in great demand playing with Gypsy jazz groups as well as modern jazz, fusion, and swing ensembles in the Twin Cities.

Jeremy Walker of the Dakota says, “Sidewalk Cafe is a hard-swinging group that plays with bravado and passion that transcends the genre and captures its fundamental appeal and excitement.”

You've also heard members of Sidewalk Cafe with Twin Cities Hot Club, Parisota, Gypsy Jazz guitarist legend Dorado Schmidt, and more.

Aug 22 The Best of Hank & Rita: A Barroom Operetta

An original stage presentation by Joe Tougas, performed by The Frye (Joe Tougas and Ann Rosenquist Fee) and Dan Vierck

The Best of Hank and Rita is a real-time concert performance taking place long after this fiction-al singing-songwriting duo’s brief moment in the Top Ten. The show opens with audio of Rita’s breakup letter written earlier that day and left behind at the hotel for Hank to find after the show. The scene cuts to house comedian “Danny Vee,” finishing up his opening act with wisecracks about microwaves, confusing trends and the tabloid follies of tonight’s headliners, Hank and Ri-ta.

The duo takes the stage upbeat and polished per usual, Rita resolved to have one last good time together, Hank oblivious to the real state of their relationship. When a fan makes an unex-pected request, the show veers off the safe set list and into deeper cuts — requested by each other — from the duo’s past, songs chronicling of pain, lust, revenge, and hope.

The story and songs are written by Joe Tougas, who draws on two decades as a regional arts and entertainment journalist and editor who regularly covered bands like Hank and Rita, bands whose popularity peaked long ago but who carry on and find audiences in secondary markets.

Tougas performs as Hank along with Ann Rosenquist Fee as Rita. Tougas and Fee are real-life performers and songwriters in the acoustic duo and Grand Kabaret favorites The Frye. The show also features Madison, Wis. standup comedian Dan Vierck as Danny Vee, Hank and Ri-ta’s opening act.

“The Best of Hank and Rita” being performed in summer and fall of 2015 in Mankato, Minneap-olis, Duluth and, on Aug. 22, New Ulm. Musician or fan or both, you’ll enjoy this original and un-forgettable evening.
