Now I know you’re wondering, where can you see us? Where can’t you see us is probably the better question! County fairs, street dances, clubs, bars, weddings, special events! We do it all and the party is just getting started, so..shall we?"

June 23 - Trailer Trash

Trailer Trash 
"TRAILER TRASH started at the 24 Bar in the now defunct Berman Buckskin Building in 1992. Moving to Lee’s Liquor Lounge in May, 1993, they held down a regular Wednesday night gig that became a midweek attraction of Minneapolis nightlife. Thanks to the resurgence of classic country music and swing-dancing in the mid-90s, the band gained a following among new generations of music lovers. To this day, TRAILER TRASH is known for playing traditional country music as well as a wide variety of styles from the American hit parade. A typically eclectic set list will span decades and touch the heart of every audience."
