Ways to Connect

I was lucky enough to have some special guests in the studio during New Music this week - Bemidji boys Corey Medina & Brothers along with The Incepticons came by to play some of their brand spanking new songs for us. They were also our guests for the CenterStage Concert Series at The Reif Center on Thursday.

Check out the video they put together!

Live Music

Feb 17, 2017

Our latest CenterStage MN Concert was last night, (featuring a northern Minnesotan for the first time in the series!) with Sam Miltich & Charmin Michelle. I had the opportunity to sit next to a man, probably in his late 80s/early 90s. This dude was feeling the music, being transported in time; I couldn't help but share in his love.

Milt Lee talks with Sam Miltich about his life as a musician.  Growing up surrounded by a large musical  family in northern Minnesota, taking his talents around the world and landing back to his roots playing jazz throughout the Upper Midwest.

Record Store Day

Record Store Day is coming! Record Store Day is coming!

Centerstage Minnesota features Minnesota artists in an eclectic mix of folk, rock, blues, jazz, and world music. One of the bands played this week is Tapes 'n Tapes, a Minneapolis based band. In early 2017, Tapes 'n Tapes re-released their first, self-titled EP. in a digital format. Inactive since 2011, this might mark the resurgance of this popular Minnesota band. Hear the whole show in the archives or by clicking here. Send any comments to KAXE/KBXE.
