Twin Cities Funk & Soul All-Stars

Fri., 2/8/13, 10 p.m.

This event is SOLD OUT.

Tickets are $8 (advanced sales for MHS members only). 
 
Held at Icehouse, 2528 Nicollet Avenue, Minneapolis 
 
The Twin Cities enjoyed a rich R&B scene during the 1960s and 1970s, featuring soul singers like Wanda Davis, Willie Walker and the Valdons along with funk groups like Willie and the Bumblebees, Band of Thieves and Prophets of Peace. Hosted at long gone and legendary venues around the Twin Cities, they created a rich musical genre and culture that came to be recognized as the “Minneapolis Sound” often credited to Prince who ultimately pioneered and popularized the music. 
 
The Minnesota Historical Society is proud to partner with Secret Stash Records and Icehouse to present a rare evening of Twin Cities Funk & Soul featuring original performers from their recently released compilation "Twin Cities Funk & Soul ('64-'79)." Dérobé Dance Band, a new group from the label, will be opening the night.
