Kinda Kinky are a band devoted to the music of The Kinks. Fronted by Minneapolis bar stars Dave Randall (The Boot R&B, Skeleton Ed, The Red Flags) and Keith Patterson (The Funseekers, The Conquerors, The Spectors), and backed by the formidable rhythm section of Lynn Von Sien on bass and Steve Kent on drums, they are a Twin Cities’ favorite, making the Star Tribune’s Big Gigs list 5 years in a row for their holiday benefit concert. With over 120 Kinks songs in their repertoire, Kinda Kinky are more preservation society than tribute band – eschewing the typical costumes and posturing while embracing the musicality and live chops. A must-see for fans of live rock ‘n’ roll.

A lot of great tracks have surfaced over the course of 2016 and new ones keep emerging, but it’s bands like M. T. Foyer that make the sifting through the chaos worthwhile. Anyone familiar with Michael Sienkowski’s past work probably shouldn’t be surprised by the band’s formidable early outing. Sienkowski was essential to Sleeping in the Aviary who helped develop Mike Krol into a powerhouse, and he also made some outstanding music as Whatfor.

“All I Wanna Do Is Love You” and “Let’s Make Something Happen” make sure that M. T. Foyer’s introduction isn’t to be taken lightly; focus on this band and waltzing away with a whole handful of favorites is all but inevitable. [Steve Spoerl, Heartbreaking Bravery]

“Our music is black, with yellow and red stripes” – Jim “Rheezy” Ruiz

Their eyes met over their Lambics in the busy Minneapolis bar. They gave each other the secret sign and in that instant an appointment was made, a journey begun. Three Froome dogs now united by their passions for two-for-one, wool jerseys, steel lugged frames, and the bittersweet and sometimes tragic history of Belgian cycling.

Each day since that fateful first begins with a 70 km ride, then a practice. Tan lined thighs and dusty faces are the uniform of their work.

McTaves is a climber who rarely leaves her saddle. Losing no momentum, she drops riders trying to hold her wheel ascending de Muur van Geraardsbergen as easily as she drops bombs on her chrome Gretsch snare.

Charlotte, Chuck to the peloton, is a ferocious sprinter whose equal has not been seen since the days of the great Freddy Maertens. She brings that same ferocity to the funky lines she lays down on her Hofner Solid bass.

Rheezy, The Mod Missile, has been known to put two bike lengths on those who dare challenge him for the top podium spot in the final 100 meters. Uniquely able to balance a breakaway spirit with a strong commitment to his team, this leader is often a GC contender with his beloved JRS strongly positioned to take the team victory.

The JRS, completed their first release, Mount Curve Avenue, with help from their kameraden; Allen Clapp, Allison LaBonne, Brian Tighe, Mike Crabtree, Peter Anderson, Peter Robelia, Jim Ouska, David Salmela, David Hamilton, David Schelzel, and Max Eider. Together they will continue their journey. They will continue creating deeply beautiful music until songbirds weep and they achieve their ultimate goal: the rainbow jersey. (Korda Records)
