Jim Gruidl’s Buddy System | America’s Roast Beef (Indie Rock) $10

Saturday, September 28, 2019 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Jim Gruidl is a stalwart member of the Minneapolis music scene. From his early days as a member of The Bloods (Gark Records) he has carved out a path as a songwriter, and a guitar player. “I’ve been really lucky over the years to be able to team up with great local musicians and create art, whether it was playing my stuff or just playing guitar on their projects. The Buddy System is just the next logical step in that progression.”

Gruidl recently teamed up with bass player Brenda Shepherd to start this new project. “She’s a great musician and more importantly, she lives and breathes the music scene. If she’s not playing in one of her projects she’s helping other women and girls achieve their dream of playing rock n roll with other people.”

Also in the band is Gruidl’s daughter, Ruby Gruidl. An accomplished violin player with the Greater Twin Cities Youth Symphony, she travels a new path that involves electric guitar and singing. The latter is a breathtaking sound to behold.

Peter Anderson is on drums. Growing up together, he and Jim have been on a musical journey that started when they were ten, and has lasted four decades. “The only thing I can say about Pete is that he’s a rock solid drummer, and a rock solid dude.”

Mark O’Day is also sharing the drumming duties on occasion. “Good drummers are always busy, and I was fortunate to meet Mark while playing guitar for someone else. I asked him to step in and play my stuff and he did so with a great feel and connection to
the music.”
