Highlight of JazzFest? Andra Day!

In her own respects looking like Billy Holiday and sounding like Nina Simone and Amy Winehouse doesn’t hurt. She did a cover of Missippi God Damn and a montage of Bob Marley, truly a beautiful voice. Andra is going places.

Hudson writes a great article about Brian Masek & Jesse Christen

One of the best local interviews I have read in a long time. I can say I have been very fortunate to know Jesse and Brian for over 20 years, two of the top musical artists not only in Sioux Falls, but the region. Jesse is a regular at the Bolin Fest in Sioux City. I can’t even count the number of times I have seen both of them play around town and at my 15 year stint at Touch of Europe. Watching them both grow as musicians has truly been a treat. Though I could never play an instrument (just ask Jesse about the number of jokes he has cracked when I have asked him to teach me guitar) I truly appreciate music, and the raw talent these two have is remarkable. Please check them out at Jazzfest, 6 PM Thursday night on the main stage and Saturday night on the 2nd stage.

JazzFest is also a treat this year (25 years), I have been attending almost 20 years, the great mix of blues, jazz, R & B and even pop rock this year will make it one to remember, the weather is also going to be perfect. Props to Rob Joyce and SF Jazz and Blues, some of my proudest moments as a graphic designer and artist have been with the work I did with them, creating the logo for two years in the past. Come and join us and help me celebrate my big 44.

1st Friday Artshow, Friday May 6, 2016

Angie has reinvented herself once again. A former student of MCAD, Angie has dabbled in about everything; pottery, clock making and painting. She got obsessed with encaustic (a process of heating dyed (bees)wax) a few years ago, and has finally got comfortable with the process. Encaustic is actually very ancient, and made popular with the Byzantine painters. The effects are rich in earth tones. I encourage you to check out her show, I’m sure it will sell out the first night.
