An Evening With Broken Spoke
Broken Spoke, the rabble-rousing folk band, have been a fixture in the Minneapolis folk music community for over ten years. The members Chris Hollister and Tony Petersen also often perform across the Midwest with their solo acts (as Prank Williams and Ditchbird, respectively) and these two will be opening up the night solo before joining together. Think that’s confusing? Don’t worry.
Their first time here, no one left the place. These guys are slightly vaudevillian in their approach to the audience. They get everyone engaged and waiting for what may come next. One member of the crowd compared them to the Smothers Brothers of 70’s fame-firstly they are musicians, but there will be loads of jokes and stories. They play off each other, but watch it, you may unknowingly become part of the show. The fact that this show is scheduled on April 1st is no accident.
Please bring cash money for the hat which will be passed. This is your way to say ‘thank you’ for the entertainment these two men are sure to bring you.
