Dakota Debut!

An exciting new band comprised of some of the finest jazz players in town. The longest-running jazz duo in Minnesota, sublime song-crafter Charmin Michelle and one-man orchestra Joel Shapira augment their ensemble with Jimmy Kennedy on piano and saxophone ace Nathan Hanson. Longtime cohorts Tom Lewis and Nathan Norman provide a sympathetic foundation. Between the six of them, they have seen hundreds of gigs and thousands of hours on the stage. There’s no telling what will happen next.
