Our Bilal show was postponed at the last minute, so we give you a free music Friday in gratitude for your support.

Dine at the Dakota tonight for our Friday free music special with the traditional New Orleans style jazz of the South Side Aces to set the weekend mood.

About Southside Aces

Southside Aces perform traditional New Orleans jazz. The band first began as the brainchild of Clarinetist Tony Balluff and Sousaphone player Erik Jacobson. Their whispers and rumors materialized in Tony’s foyer near Pillsbury and 27th in South Minneapolis, late August 2003. Since their first gig on a flatbed truck in Apple Valley, they’ve played weddings, festivals, clubs— “music furnished for all occasions”.

The Aces have self-produced and released three CDs: All Aboard!! on Mardi Gras, 2005, Bucktown Bounce in September of 2006, and A Big Fine Thing in June of 2011.

This special show will showcase the timeless music of Sidney Bechet.

Tony Balluff: clarinet
Zack Lozier: trumpet
Steve Sandberg: trombone
Erik Jacobson: sousaphone
Robert Bell: guitar
Dick Bortolussi: drumkit
