Joey DeFrancesco Trio
  • Friday, 7:00pm CDT-8:30pm CDT   Ical event icon
  • "Ranging from sublime to positively pyrotechnic... the best B3 player on the planet." – Jazz Times To hear Joey DeFrancesco today, his music embodies the traditional art form infused with a distinct modern approach, just part of what makes his music unmistakably his own. Joey DeFrancesco’s emergence in the 1980s marked the onset of a musical renaissance. Organ jazz had all but gone into hibernation from the mid-’70s to the mid-’80s until DeFrancesco reignited the flame. With a natural gift for music, DeFrancesco also swiftly picked up on the trumpet after a touring stint with Miles Davis as one of the two youngest players ever recruited for any of Davis’ ensembles.

Free for 7pm ticket holders! Raised in the church choir and steeped in R&B and garage rock rumble, Nikki Hill is a spitfire with the soul-drenched voice of Etta James and the tattooed, beehived-hair aura of Cramps’ guitarist Poison Ivy. Nikki and her band are climbing to the top of the roots music scene step by step and leaving jaws on the floor along the way. With a no-filter energy, they take all the flavors of American roots music and deliver a sound that will make you believe in rock n’ roll again. Independently released on house label Deep Fryed Records, Nikki Hill lets her soul rip on her third LP, Feline Roots. This new collection bends through supercharged blues, punk, soul, revival tent gospel, and rockabilly shouts. Nikki has never been afraid to take the road less traveled, and it’s clear with Feline Roots that she’s living every word.

RENT - 20th Anniversary Tour
  • Saturday, 2:00pm CDT   Ical event icon
  • In 1996, an original rock musical by a little-known composer opened on Broadway… and forever changed the landscape of American theatre. Two decades later, Jonathan Larson’s RENT continues to speak loudly and defiantly to audiences across generations and all over the world. And now, this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award®-winning masterpiece returns to the stage in a vibrant 20th anniversary touring production. A re-imagining of Puccini’s La Bohème, RENT follows an unforgettable year in the lives of seven artists struggling to follow their dreams without selling out. With its inspiring message of joy and hope in the face of fear, this timeless celebration of friendship and creativity reminds us to measure our lives with the only thing that truly matters — love. https://hennepintheatretrust.org/events/rent-broadway-tickets-minneapolis-mn-2019/
