Rebirth Brass Band

The Rebirth Brass Band have been at the forefront of the brass band revival that they helped kick off almost 30 years ago. Formed by the Frazier brothers, Phil and Keith, along with Kermit Ruffins in 1983, The Rebirth Brass band has gone from playing on corners in the French Quarter to selling out concert halls across the world and appearing in David Simon’s HBO hit “Tremé.” It’s been a…

Red Baraat web

Red Baraat

Formed in 2008, Red Baraat is a pioneering eight-piece band from Brooklyn, New York. Conceived by Sunny Jain, the group has drawn worldwide praise for its singular sound — a merging of hard driving North Indian bhangra rhythms with elements of jazz, go-go, brass funk, and hip-hop. Created with no less a purposeful agenda than manifesting joy and unity in all people, Red Baraat’s spirit is worn brightly on its…

Red Molly

Red Molly

If one word describes Red Molly’s music, that word is joyous. From their soaring, signature harmonies to the rich, varied tones of their individual voices, Red Molly is simply a joy to listen to. Their brilliantly wrought a capella tunes are love letters to the art of the vocal blend, and their innovative instrumentation is perfectly suited for foot stomping bluegrass-tinged barnburners and perfectly crafted heart-full ballads alike. Though each…

Regina Carter

Regina Carter

Violinist Regina Carter is considered the foremost jazz violinist of her generation – a designation which doesn’t quite paint the picture. As a result of her curiosity, passion, and quest for beauty brought to every stop taken on her full musical journey, she was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship (a “genius grant”). Those are more apparent than ever on her 2014 recording Southern Comfort, in which she explores the folk music…


Regina Marie Williams

A phenomenal actor and world-class vocalist, she consistently wows critics and leaves audiences enthralled, staying in high demand. This lady of the stage leaves cataracts of applause in her wake at such nationally renowned venues as The Guthrie Theater, Penumbra Theatre Company, Mixed Blood Theatre and The Dakota. For good measure, acclaim comes from no less a source than Angela Bassett who, in Entertainment Weekly, named Regina Marie Williams “the…

The Regulars!

The Regulars!

The Regulars! have been hailed as “a funky Twin Cities supergroup” from Minnesota by City Pages, including members of the Big Wu, Gypsyfoot, Hyentyte, MN Bluegrass Band, and Burnin’ Hyder. The Regulars bring the sensibilities of Funk, R&B, and Fusion together with original material and the power of Rock and Roll. Band members have played all over the country, and at some of the biggest festivals in the country. The…


Reina del Cid and the Cidizens

The Cidizens are led by Reina del Cid, described by Minneapolis’ Secrets of the City as “the way-more-talented-than-you girl next door.” Del Cid’s honest, unassuming stage presence is coupled with a raw energy that animates every meticulously crafted and lyrically driven song she puts forward. Hailing from Fargo, ND, the self-described “nerd rocker” moved to Minneapolis for school and used the tens of thousands of dollars she earned in academic…

The Rembrandts with Sherrie Austin

It’s still heard in every…

Rene Marie Microphone

René Marie

René Marie – singer, actress, writer. Eartha Kitt – singer, actress, writer. Never before has there been a vocal recording tipping the hat to the divine Ms. Kitt and her fiery, sensual and clever interpretations of songs. With her incredible vocal range, her emotional resonance and strong independent streak, René maintains Ms. Kitt’s legacy and helps keep her spirit alive. I Wanna Be Evil (With Love to Eartha Kitt) is…


Reneé Austin

Six-time Minnesota Music Award winner and WC Handy nominee Reneé Austin calls her gospel music a mix of country, R&B and classic soul, “roadhouse soul,” and it’s an apt description of the energy and passion she brings to the stage. Raised in Kingsland, Texas, this multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter has opened for or shared the stage with such artists as Jonny Lang, Los Lobos, Blues Traveler, Big Head Todd & The…
