I’ve been so happy to be a part of the Midwest Country Music Association for the last year; I’ve made new friends (who possess amazing talent), grown my professional network, played at amazing new places, and had a ton of fun doing it all!
Our latest Midwest CMA adventure brought us all to Route 47 Pub and Grub in Fridley, MN, where almost 50 members of the organization were Mixed-Up into different bands for a night of friendly competition featuring a theme we all had to follow.
This year’s theme was Movie Soundtracks. Our band “Dirty Duets” performed music from the classic film, “Dirty Dancing,” including “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life” and “Love Is Strange.” We also performed one country wild card song, a newer hit by Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson called “Don’t You Wanna Stay?”
Last year my band won the inaugural event, and though my band didn’t “win” this year, I absolutely won playing with some of the finest gentlemen in the country music scene.
Make sure to follow the “Dirty Duet” crew:
Drummer Grant Thelen, Bassist Derek Patrin, our Lead Guitarist Joe Flip and my fellow Lead Singer, Mark Stone. They are all incredible and you’ll love what they do in their own daily musical endeavors!

Thanks, as always, for supporting independent musicians!
