We had the first concert Thursday night for the 2017 portion of our CenterStage MN Concert Series with The Reif Center. The Honeydogs were here, and man, they were great. Have you seen them? I knew the band was going to be fun when I walked backstage into a flying Millennium Falcon with the guitar player doing high kicks to try and knock it down. They brought that kind of energy and level of fun onto the stage throughout the performance.

Our collaboration with The Reif Center continues with a concert this month featuring longtime indie rock band in MN, The Honeydogs, January 19th, 7:30pm.
