Corey Medina and Brothers will continue the Reif Drive-In Concert Series on Thursday, June 18 at 7 p.m. in the Myles Reif Performing Arts Center parking lot.
“These drive-in shows have turned out to be quite popular during this age of social distancing,” said Reif Arts Council Marketing Director Paul M. Gregersen. “This is a unique way for us to continue providing live music opportunities, while keeping our ticket buyers safe in their cars. Plus the lights flashing and horns honking after each song is pretty cool.”
Concertgoers tune FM radio dials to an open channel to listen to the music through car stereos via a transmitter. Windows up or down. Volume at their preferred level.
Medina is a Native American Blues Artist from Shiprock, N.M. Medina refers to the Brothers as a representation of the relationship he likes to keep with his fellow band mates. Currently the Brothers band consist of Eric Sundeen of Bemidji on Drums and Gary Broste, also from Bemidji, on upright bass.
After three years of talking about a full-length studio album, in 2019 Corey and The Brothers released their debut full length album, “Better Days.” They set out to spread light to dark, and hope to the hopeless with their raw, soulful, intimate music and stage presence.
“We look forward to having Corey and the band back to the Reif, albeit a drive-in format. We’re used to hearing them on KAXE in the car, but not live in our parking lot. This show will be pretty special,” Gregersen said.
The Reif Drive-In concert series continues Thursday, June 25 with local act Cowboy Angel Blue.
Tickets for all Reif Drive-In shows are $20 per car and available at
reifcenter.org or by calling 218-327-5780. The drive-on series is made possible by contributions from the Blandin Foundation and Edwards LaPlant Construction.
