Hank Williams was born September 17, 1923, in Mount Olive, Alabama. Considered one of the most popular American country music singer/songwriters with songs like “Cold, Cold Heart,” “Your Cheatin’ Heart,” “Hey, Good Lookin’” and “I’ll Never Get Out of This World Alive.” He died of a heart attack at the age of 29 in 1953 in the backseat of his Cadillac.

Hank Williams continues to be a huge influence on upcoming Artists of all genres, and The Cabooze is pleased to celebrate what would have been his91st birthday with a musical tribute to his life and music.

Curtiss A (born Curt Almsted) is both a musician and a visual artist. One of the original artists on the Twin Tone label, he performs one of the most popular shows in the Twin Cities, an annual tribute to John Lennon.

 

Curtiss formed Wire, his first Twin Cities band, in 1969 and played with various permutations of that group through the 1970s. His first recording, a six song EP, was with the Spooks, which he started with future Replacements guitarist Slim Dunlap.

In 1978, Curtiss (as Buzz Barker) released the single-cum-political rant, I Don’t Wanna Be President. Its B-side, Land of the Free, was played at Solidarity rallies as the Polish trade union protested martial law. Following those classic singles, Twin Tone released a full length album in 1980. The acclaimed Courtesy received five stars in Rolling Stone. Curtiss followed with two more albums on Twin Tone, The Damage is Done and A Scarlet Letter, the latter produced by Al Anderson of NRBQ.

Over the last two decades, Curtiss has released several critically acclaimed albums, and he continues to play throughout the Twin Cities with his band,The Jerks of Fate Curtiss A & the Cold Cold Hearts.

The Cabooze is pleased to welcome Curtiss A back home to The Cabooze!!!

Minneapolis based reggae rockers Jon Wayne and The Pain have been carving a sizable niche in the reggae-rock genre.  Their third release “Surrender” builds upon the success of the group’s sophomore album which adds Jam and EDM to their unique mix of Reggae, Rock, and Dub that fans can’t get enough of.  Jon, Teeto and Chuckie are the ultimate coast-to-coast road warriors having played an average of 20 shows per month for the last 4 years.  Their live shows include a powerful display of the trio’s “Reggae-Tronic Dub”.  The band creates a unique psychedelic Reggae sound by blending Reggae-Rock with evolving bass heavy tangents of electronic dub.
