Live Music | Dulono's Pizza (Minneapolis Location Only)
This show features Chris Silver, Marty Marrone, Heath Loy, Tom Schaefer and David Tousley. Dick was an educator and an amazing bluegrass musician who frequented Dulono’s stage. He was one of The Mando Boys, based out of the Twin Cities, and had an infinite love for traditional bluegrass music. He tragically died 6 years ago from an accident in his home. This show is in honor of his friendship, leadership and legacy. Please join us in celebrating his life through music and stories.
Bernie King and the Guilty Pleasures came into being in early 2010 when they put together a group for a local jug band contest. The synergy between original members Bernie King, Julie King, Matt Smith, and John Kurtis Dehn was so natural and right that they decided to keep on making great music as a band. And that’s exactly what they did as witnessed by the release of two great albums, 2012’s Bernie King and the Guilty Pleasures and 2014’s Pretty Little Gal.
The Middle Spunk Creek Boys have been a band since 1968. The group has performed countless number of shows across the mid-west including many performances at Dulono’s Pizza throughout those years. Dulono’s welcomes the band back to their stage!

As one of the Twin Cities hardest working acoustic acts, Timbre Junction has cemented a reputation for playing across a variety of musical styles and putting on a spirited show. With their emphasis on skillful playing, tight arrangements and expressive vocals done “their way”, Timbre Junction pushes the envelope…this is not your everyday Minnesota bluegrass band.
While traditional bluegrass, country blues, cowboy and western swing anchor their repertoire, the band is far from predictable and can be tough to categorize. What makes Timbre Junction different is their taking a song from any era or genre, and turning it on its head to make it their own.
Timbre Junction’s lineup has evolved since they formed in 1998. Founded by Minnesota bluegrass stalwarts Mike Regouski and Karen Radford, the band rotated players for some years until settling upon the current crew which now includes distinguished Minnesota musician Amy Ferman (Fiddle/Mandolin) and Stan Chew (Guitar/Mandolin) who was last to join in the fall of 2013 after moving to the area from the east coast.
The New Distractions are a Minneapolis quartet with electric & acoustic guitar, drums, keyboard, acoustic bass and vocals. Their eclectic playlist ranges from swingin’ blues and funky rock to American roots and alt-country. Vocal duties are shared and are a strong feature of this group of seasoned musicians who always bring great playing and enthusiasm to their shows. Their piano and guitar-driven playlist is delivered in a cohesive, creative show – at times rockin’, then singing soulful and sweet. Their monthly gig at the Midtown Global Market is a favorite with all ages. Join The New Distractions for a little bit of everything – from the Dead, Aretha, and Bonnie Raitt, to the Joneses: George, Norah and Rickie Lee.
This Minneapolis-based band takes their name from the Minnesota State Fair’s large display of farm equipment. Their original style blends American folk with unexpected touches of ska, klezmer, celtic and a bit of rock & roll. If you look up “diverse” in the dictionary, it says “see Machinery Hill.” Catchy original songs with well-crafted lyrics are showcased along with striking interpretations of traditional tunes. They have performed along with such diverse acts as Beausoleil, Buckwheat Zydeco, Frente, Phish, Black 47, Brave Combo, Eugene Chadbourne, Jimmy Carl Black and Queen Ida; and have headlined at The Great River Folk Festival, among others.
Machinery Hill is the 1996 winner of the Minnesota Music award for best world beat CD, the 1999 MMA winner for specialist recording and has been included in TPT’s series “MN. Original (episode #226.)
