Tune into the Cuyuna Lakes Chamber’s Virtual Music in the Park throughout summer. Virtual Music in the Park is a free, family-friendly video concert series everyone can watch from the safety of their electronic device. Blue Collar Sound and Easy Street Productions have partnered with the Cuyuna Lakes Chamber to film the video performances of each local musician and band throughout the six-part series.
A new virtual performance featuring area artists will be posted on the Cuyuna Lakes Chamber website, YouTube and Facebook on the second and fourth Thursday evenings of the month through August. Details are available at cuyunalakes.com/virtual-music-in-the-park/
Next on the Virtual Music in the Park lineup is Radda Radda on Thursday, Aug. 13. Long-time pals and Minneapolis music scene veterans Mo, Grant, Allen & Duncan, came together in an atom bomb of pop-rock rainbows in the spring of 2017 to create the band. Band members describe the song stylings of Radda Radda to traverse a bridge betwixt heartbreak and hell-why-not, built from howls at the moon, heartfelt declarations and mighty walls of Telecaster twang, all the while maintaining an unmistakable pop sensibility charismatically imbued with Americana overtones that succeed in fighting shy of the predictable. The group has supported the like of Huey Lewis & The News, Kelly Clarkson, The Wallflowers, Red Wanting Blue, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and more.
