Community Noteworthy Food & Music

We’ve been around the Twin Cities for over 25 years. We feel community involvement is important and we model this by getting involved with community efforts, benefits, & fundraisers. Read below to learn about the Dakota Foundation and our upcoming community events.

Dakota Foundation

This 501 (3)c organization was founded in 1997 by Lowell Pickett, along with Jane Matteson and Tom Trow. Its purpose is to nurture a new generation of jazz musicians and listeners by introducing young people to jazz, and helping them understand, enjoy, and care about what they are hearing.
