American Roots Revue wins a Legacy Grant! The group will perform in five out state Minnesota communities in partnership with homeless shelters, veteran, and community organizations.
Back by popular demand after two sold-out shows at the Dakota in November, gospel great Robert Robinson; the unstoppably creative dynamo J.D. Steele; R&B powerhouse Tonia Hughes and gifted songwriter Larry Long will return with a band of musicians second to none on Saturday, January 18th. Their collective performances have circled the globe from Madison Square Garden to the Hollywood Bowl; South Africa, Scotland, Brazil, Russia, Kenya, Italy and France. You may also recognize each from shows with everyone from Prince to Pete Seeger, Mavis Staples to Bruce Springsteen. Together for an explosive new show at the Dakota, they will warm up your January with their powerful and heart-warming performances from the vibrant traditions of gospel, jazz, rhythm & blues, folk and rock. For this Martin Luther King weekend, they will be celebrating with you the ties that bind us together through our shared love of music rooted in the American experience.
