Cook County's Most Wanted!
Full Moon, Spring Equinox, Campfires and Birthday Shenanigans!
Well, there’s a TON to celebrate this upcoming Weekend!
Full Moon, Spring Equinox, Birthday Shenanigans and ...
Cook County’s Most Wanted Friday Night!!
Cook County’s Most Wanted (CCMW) is a 6 to 7 piece Grand Marais-based dance band with a loyal local and regional following. They have been playing in and around Grand Marais, MN for a good 12 years or so now....a very good 12 years!
At one time, they went by the name “Rod ‘n Real,” but after their crooner Gary Croft had a dream that included a Blues Brothers type scene, with cops waiting to arrest them when we got off stage, and the name “Cook County’s Most Wanted” on the marquee, they took it as a sign, and changed the name!
If you’ve heard of the Minneapolis jam band “The Big Wu,” well, our good friend Al Oikari, plays keys and lap steel in that band, and when he’s free, he also plays with CCMW. The guy is world class and will make you melt with his playing. Talk about sweet notes. It’s like manna from heaven, for real. You have to hear it, he really is incredible.
The rest of the band don’t suck too bad either! In fact they are incredible!! Rod Dockan leads the way with his rhythm guitar, vocals, and dazzling presence.
Next to him is Carah Thomas, adding a folk/roots/Americana vibe with her mountain dulcimer, vocals, and percussion.
The legendary Gary Croft brings gravitas to the group with his country ballads and phenomenal voice.
Adding more firepower to the group is rocker Steve Johnson on electric guitar, vocals, and sweet pedal steel.
Last but not least is bassist Snuffy Smith, with his mind like a steel trap for songs, always in the pocket
