Klezmerica, Minneapolis, MN, Nov 6

As you may know, the Dakota Bar & Grill has moved to downtown Minneapolis at 10th & Nicollet, just a few blocks from the Convention Center. Klezmerica will be celebrating the move by performing at the new Dakota this Thursday evening, November 6, from 8:30 PM until 12:30. There will be a $10 cover. For more information, people can phone (612) 332-1010.

The Dakota is one of America's foremost jazz venues and one of the Twin Cities' finest restaurants. Virtually every major jazz musician has performed there. Roy Hargrove called it "the most comfortable jazz club in the world for musicians and audiences."

As it happens, the national Reform Jewish movement will be holding its Biennial Convention just a few blocks away, at the Minneapolis Convention Center Wednesday, November 5 through Sunday morning, November 9. Thousands from across the U.S. and beyond will be attending. Klezmerica has been selected to open the convention with a brief "Welcome to Minnesota" performance Wednesday night, November 5, in the Convention Center. It may be that someone you know who is here for the convention might also want to hear more of our music after their convention participation ends on Thursday evening.
