SONNY FREAKIN KNIGHT, YOU GUYS! SONNY FREAKIN KNIGHT!


SONNY KNIGHT & THE LAKERS!
LIVE AND UNLEASHED!
Rockbend Folk Festival
Saturday, September 6th @ 8:30pm
Minnesota Square Park
St Peter, Minnesota
FREE! FREE! FREE! FREE! FREE! FREE!

You guys really need to go to this show on Saturday night.  Sonny Knight has been kicking around the Minnesota music scene off and on for about 50 years, and he's hit it big with the 2013 release of his album I'm Still Here.  It's an amazing collection of classic R&B, and everything about it exceeds any expectations.  I'm Still Here is a great album.  Do you have it in your collection yet?  If not, WHY NOT?

We first met Sonny via his history with Haze, the mystery band.  In person he's a very introspective guy, but when he hits the stage he's a force of nature.  His band, The Lakers, is TIGHT.  Really solid horns and rhythm.  When he sings "everybody get up and dance" you're gonna be compelled by the power of music to do just that.  You have no other option.  Sonny Knight and The Lakers shows have been receiving rave reviews all across the country, and they have been featured on World Cafe and WBEZ, so that's not too shabby.

Look, all we're saying is that you need to be at this show on Saturday.  It's free, for pete's sake, and the band is gonna knock you on your ass.  That's right!  I said ass!

Here's some great video and audio of Sonny Knight for you guys to digest.  Honestly, it's gonna be a great show.  Don't live with the regret if you pass on it.
