The Everly Brothers combined their two voices for a distinctive harmony that was wrapped around some of the finest songs of the early rock era. A major influence on the Beatles and virtually every vocal act that followed, the Everlys were also able to cross genres and had both pop and country hits.

This joyous performance features an all-star band and six wonderful vocalists, (including Mary Jane Alm, Matt Velline, Boyd and Aimee Lee, and brothers Paul and Tim Frantzich) all taking turns pairing up to interpret the rich and varied musical catalog of the legendary duo.

The show features virtually all of the hits- (Bye Bye Love, Wake Up Little Susie, Devoted To You, Cathy and Clown, All I Have To Do is Dream, Let It Be Me…) as well as some under-appreciated gems.

Mary Jane Alm
Mary Jane Alm
Mary Jane Alm and the band have had, and are still having, a great ride. They have opened shows for countless national acts. They recorded at Paisley Park, Creation, Cookhouse and numerous other great studios in Minneapolis with Tom Tucker, Peter Johnson, Scott Malchow and some other big shot from Nashville and most recently, with Grammy award winner, Steve Hodge, who produced, engineered, mixed and mastered her newest record, "Me and the Wild Blue".

The Mary Jane Alm Band is; Boyd Lee on acoustic guitar and vocals, Gordy Johnson on bass, Scooter Nelson on percussion and vocals and Brian Peters on guitar and pedal steel. They are the absolute best!

"Of all Twin Cities performers, no one is more adored than Mary Jane Alm, a talented charmer with golden vocal chords, disarming sincerity, an impressive collection of original tunes and a hot, high-caliber band." - St. Paul Pioneer Press
The Brothers Frantzich
The Brothers Frantzich
The Brothers Frantzich, Paul Frantzich and Timothy Frantzich, are a singer-songwriter duo. The twin brothers have worked together and separately, and with the poets Robert Bly and Coleman Barks, and perform and teach in the United States and United Kingdom. They have been writing, recording and performing music since 1996 and have released seven CDs.

Tim and Paul Frantzich were songwriters and members of Minneapolis bands A Few (1984–87), Ruby (1990–1994) and Ride Ruby Ride (1994–1996). Songs from their Ruby Socratic Gilligan CD were mixed by David Z.

They use a mix of various Travis picking and strumming techniques to build upon the blood harmony tradition, most commonly heard in country music.

The acoustic duo's approach to harmony singing commonly uses parallel thirds and fifths. Single vocal performances are also sometimes used.
