The Southside Aces travel to Denver for the Rocky Mountain Balboa Blowout Two nights of music for great dancers. We fly back and then perform as part of the Twin Cities Winter Jazz Festival 3pm MacPhail Center for the Arts.
Karen Vieno Paurus is a really wonderful musician. She was voted best vocalist at the Minnesota Music awards, has appeared on NPR, fronted pop bands and we have worked together during Lili’s Burlesque and MPR Stage Sessions as well as her own cabaret performances. Karen has yet to release an album featuring her own music. Until now! Passion Prayer and Poison will be released on March 15, 2008 at the Times Bar and Cafe in Minneapolis MN. This was such a great project to be a part of. I recorded the guitar for the album and also got to produce and arrange some really incredible original music. This project was also so lovely as it felt like a return to my roots; original music heavy on collaboration light on ego, an honor to be involved.
Kafe 421 with Andrea Sander-Connett March 28, 2008. Andrea is a great person to work with. She has a really diverse repertoire and has me singing in languages I do not speak. Come to the show!
