Lake Minnetonka’s ‘Melbourneapolis’ Album Launch Tickets
8:00pm, Fri 23 February, 2018
Howler, MELBOURNE, VIC
It's been a long time coming, but the debut full-length album from Lake Minnetonka is finally here!
Crafting a contemporary Melbourne take on the Minneapolis Sound (made famous by the likes of Prince, Janet Jackson, Sheila E, and the Time), Lake Minnetonka's 'Melbourneapolis' ("Melbourne-apolis") infuses elements of funk, new wave and even a bit of blues into an irreverent jazz cocktail made for dancing ("Nothin' but a party!" as Prince used to say).
Joining us for our celebration are the boogie masters Silver Linings, as well as American Idol sensation DeAndre Brackensick. Lake Minnetonka's set will feature a cavalcade of special guests from the album including Shannen Wick (Fulton Street), Fran oise D'Argent (Silver Linings), Henry Manetta, with more to be announced soon!
The album itself features performances from Minneapolis Funk Royalty: St Paul Peterson (The Time, The Family), Dr Fink (Prince and the Revolution), Eric Leeds (The Revolution, D'Angelo), Sonny T (New Power Generation), and Petar Janjic (Dr Mambo's Combo).
Pre-Order 'Melbourneapolis' from bandcamp and get instant downloads of the four singles 'Clipnosis', 'Out There Bout There', 'There It Is', and 'Rare Love'!
