Tickets and event information
Adam Levy is probably best known for working nearly 20 years as the lead singer/songwriter for The Honeydogs. Levy’s songwriting has always been expansive, exploring musical styles as diverse as Americana roots, psychedelia, soul, world, jazz and classical. His voice is life-worn, his lyrics provocative and unique. Levy has also embarked on a slew of side-projects for the last five years: electronic experimental music with Liminal Phase, orchestral chamber pop with And The Professors, children’s music with Bunny Clogs, ‘60s’ and ‘70s’ soul and funk with Hookers $ Blow and early-mid 20th century jazz with Rose Room. He is currently working on his first truly solo project, expected out in 2014, as well as a new Honeydogs record. He likes to think he still hasn’t written his best song yet.
Bethany Larson & The Bee’s Knees, called one of Twin Cities’ best kept secrets by local press, brings a preacher’s daughter from Austin, Minnesota to the forefront of the state’s music scene. Larson grew up with three older brothers singing in the church choir. She picked up the guitar at fifteen and during college, trained in classical voice. She began writing songs and soon after hit the stage. In the process of recording her sophomore album she joined forces with the “Bee’s Knees” – her brother Chris Larson on guitar, keyboards and backing vocals, Sara Horishnyk on drums/percussion and Sam Johnson on bass. Bethany Larson & The Bee’s Knees have been moving up the scale, playing venues including the Dakota Jazz Club, the Aster Cafe, the Red Stagg, the Midwest Music Festival in Winona and the Paramount Theater in her hometown of Austin.
