Dec 12 Captain Gravitone & the String Theory Orchestra Return to The Grand Kabaret!
Friday, December 12th @ 7:30 PM Captain Gravitone & the String Theory Orchestra Return to The Grand Kabaret!  

Captain Gravitone & the String Theory Orchestra plays Americana Folk Rock, infused with Tango and Jazz, one of the many great, new bands coming from Minnesota. The group's superhero, Captain Gravitone, tangos in big box stores, beautiful women clad in leather, beat poets, elephants, philosophy majors, the circus and parallel universes come to life in the group's compositions. The sound is fun, sometimes moody, with a distinct sense of humor reminiscent of Tom Waits, Frank Zappa and Bela Fleck. The group features Eli Hoehn on banjo, Wayne Schmidt on the electric guitar, Corban Noah on electric bass, Damen Price on drums and a host of other musicians that lend their talents to the group on an occasional basis including vocalist Kelly Quinn, violinist Karen Kozak, guitarist/vocalist Mark Bishofsky, guitarist/vocalist Jason Helder, percussionist Daryn Christensen, and bassist Bill Grenke.

Dec 13 Javier and the Innocent Sons Return to The Grand Kabaret!
Saturday, December 13th @ 7:30 PM Javier and the Innocent Sons Return to The Grand Kabaret! 

This potent quartet from Minneapolis plays timeless barrel-house roots music that is projected from the contemporary perspective of songwriter Javier Matos. Javier grew up listening to the early blues patriarchs on his father’s record player with his ears glued to the speakers. This music struck him to the core, and Blues has been his passion ever since. After a 20 year career took him from coast to coast, he settled in Minneapolis and formed The Innocent Sons.They are Grant Wibben on upright bass and Twin Cities music veterans Dan Schwalbe and Dave Larson on guitar and drums respectively. In 2010 they released their first record, titled “Lost in Loretto "

"Every so often a guitar player comes out of nowhere to knock you off your feet... Javier Matos is such a player. He can play bottleneck slide blues like he was born with a National guitar in his hands. He has a confident solid vocal talent to boot, packing a solid punch behind his fierce guitar attack." Tim Sheridan~All music guide

"In a time when blues is defined by a boring tendency for slick or overzealous distortion, Matos isn't afraid to keep it real and make it bleed." Ian Power~MN Daily

"Clear, powerful, soulful, mature, menacing, uproarious and infernal" James Norton~ Heavytable.com
