Dance to Earth Wind and Todd at Grandma Ray's Saturday May 28th!

Come see the band and join in the fun at the newly remodeled "Grandma Ray's!" (Formerly the American Legion). A real stage and the biggest dance floor in the county! Great food and drink and lots of warm company to start off this summer with a bang. Earth Wind and Todd are a popular local '70's dance group that plays uppity pop, dirty funk, smooth soul, groovy disco and rebellious rock. Come on down and join the band in not taking things too seriously.

Ricardo Lemvo & Makina Loca @ ACA June 11

If there's one concert you don't want to miss this season, it may well be L.A.’s  Ricardo Lemvo & Makina Loca, a band whose music the Los Angeles Times calls "seamless and infectious" and the New York Post "celestial." The Boston Globe says their unique sound is "one of the most potent musical marriages imaginable, the Cuban son with the African soukous."

Thanks to generous support from the Arrowhead Regional Arts Council and the Global Awareness Fund of the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation, the North Shore Music Association is thrilled to present:


Arrowhead Center for the Arts, 51 W. 5th St. Grand Marais

June 11 - 7:30 PM

Tickets: General admission. $20 adults, $5 youth (18 & under). For sale in advance (no fees) at  (search "Arrowhead Center for the Arts") and at door.

More about Ricardo:

Ricardo Lemvo is a celebrated pioneer of innovative music that blends Afro-Cuban rhythms with pan-African styles (soukous, Angolan semba and kizomba).Congo-born of Angolan ancestry, Lemvo is the embodiment of the Afro-Latin Diaspora, which connects back to Mother Africa via the Cuban clave rhythm. Since forming his Los Angeles-based band Makina Loca in 1990, Lemvo has performed countless shows with them throughout Europe, the Americas, Africa, and Australia.
