Winter Blues Party 2016

Winter Blues Party 2016

What a Winter Blues Party it was.......the low temp hit -19, but it did not deter the 110 Blues fans that came out for a great night of Blues!

Luke Ellenbaum kicked off the show with some of his Delta style Blues to get the crowd warmed up for argueably one of hottest local acts around The Jennifer Lyn Band....Jennifer along with Darren King on bass and Kevin Holm on drums played a great set warming up for Matt Spinks. Unfortunatly, Jennifer's set had some sound issues, that was finally fixed by replacing a bad cord. The sound was fixed for the headline act, The Matt Spinks Trio out of the Denver area.......Matt certainly was the skilled guitar player and great vocalist as billed. Matt had to perform a lot of covers as his bass player Mac McMurray had only done 3 prior shows and no rehearsal, Mac really was a crowd pleaser with his solid skills and general antics that made him fun to watch. Bismarck native Jack Greenwood was on drums for Matt Spinks and I was very impressed with his smooth and steady style. Without a doubt The Matt Spinks Trio has what it takes.......make sure you catch them next time!

Steamer Promotions would like to Thank the following for helping make the show a success: Vintage Guitar Magazine, Ramada Bismarck Hotel, Nightlife Music and the Muddy River Blues Society.

Catching up!!

My, my, my!  Just like that the time has flown!!  Been a busy year for us at Dakota Nights...some new equipment...some new venues....& of course,.....some new songs!! Some of the new Classic Country added are  "Home of the Blues" by Johnny Cash..."Stranger", by Johnny Duncan & Janie Fricke, cause we love to duet!!  Also added is  "Country sunshine", by Dottie West, "6 White horses" by Tommy Cash, plus some other great Classics!  One of the fun songs we added to our 50's is "I Can Help" by Billy Swan....I know, it was made popular in the 70's, but it is such fun, & fits perfectly in with our 50's & 60's music!!  We have also been busy with a few gigs, as well as gardening & horse training on my part....& farming for Dennis's part.  We do, however, make the time for our practices...they are very important to us!!  Check out our calendar to see where are playing, or where we have been  & have a listen to our music on our page...it was recorded a few years ago, but  it gives you an idea of our music, although, our sound recordings have improved with knowledge, & experience!!!  :)  Drop me an email if you have any questions about "Dakota Nights".  I would love to visit with you, reader!!  kswvymoo@ndsupernet.com
