Well, it only took two-and-a-half years of Covid and other mitigating factors, but we’ve finally rescheduled my long-delayed visit to the Twin Cities area. I was originally scheduled to play in April 2020. But I expect you remember how weird those early pandemic months were for all concerned. Thanks to Dan for keeping me in mind for this attempted re-do. Lord willing, I’ll actually be there this time! I’ve left the “legacy description” from the original date below. Hope to see you there.
Advance tickets are $30.00 through Eventbrite. Tickets at the door are $35.00. (Please note this venue is not currently handicapped accessible. There are stairs involved for getting to and from the second-floor performance area.)

From 2020: This is going to be a blast. A couple decades or more ago, I worked with Dan Adler at Church of the Open Door in the Twin Cities. He is the founder/director of Heart of the City Ministries in Anoka, MN. I’ll be doing two sets and likely taking requests along the way. I haven’t been to the area in years and I am really looking forward to being back there again to sing. (And, if I’m being honest here, I’m also giddy at the opportunity to possible grab some Red’s Savoy Pizza during my visit!) … Oh, okay, where was I? Oh yeah. From the website, here is a great summary of Heart of the City’s mission and work. Who wouldn’t want to be a part if this?!?
MUSIC WITH A MISSION: USING MUSIC AS A TOOL TO UNITE
Since 1996, Heart of the City Ministries – a non-profit, Christian, multi-ethnic music ministry, has been sharing the Gospel and bringing a message, model and experience of multi-ethnic worship and Biblical unity through the amazing talents of the Heart of the City Worship Band! Now, since 2018, they are continuing this mission through hosting stylistically and ethnically diverse quality concerts at the Heart of the City Music Factory in Anoka, Minnesota.In a time when divisions are increasing and becoming more entrenched, the need is great in every big and small way to build bridges in the name of Jesus.The Heart of the City Band has 11 different ethnicities represented in it with it’s members coming from many different congregations of various Christian denominations.Their music reflects that diversity in style including Native American, East Indian, Gospel, Urban Contemporary, Reggae, Salsa, Bossa Nova, Modern Worship, Hymn styles and others.
