Minnesota Music Academy Presents: Minnesota Artists Tribute Night

The MMA is gearing up for the 23rd Annual Minnesota Music Awards with a few special shows to pay homage to Minnesota music artists. The first show, “Minnesota Artists Tribute Night” where local music heroes pay tribute to their favorite Minnesota musicians, past and present, will be held on Thursday, July 31st at Mario’s Keller Bar. This unique show will feature Dan Israel & the Cultivators, Mike Gunther & His Restless Souls, Martin Devaney Band, Matt Anderson and Cheddar Slim & The Elvis Minds (featuring members of The Rakes, Betty Drake, Reluctant Prophets and The Bottlehouse). Each artist will play various Minnesota covers of their choosing, always keeping us on our toes. This is certainly not an event to be missed by anyone who’s a fan of the local music scene.
