Pick your all-time, All-Star Band!

All-Star Bands (MPR Graphic)

The Major-League Baseball All-Star Game is coming to Target Field and The Current staff started wondering, who would The Current listeners choose to be in their All-Star Band?

This is it, your chance to choose the ultimate All-Star Band!

Jimi Hendrix on guitar, Flea on bass, Meg White on drums, and Bono on vox? Or maybe Tom Morello, Les Claypool, Questlove and Shirley Manson? It's your band, you pick the All-Star members.

Then starting this weekend we'll play sets of music based on your All-Star Band submissions leading up to the big MLB All-Star ball game on Tuesday, July 15 at Target Field. If you have a story behind your All-Star Band, we'll share that on air, too!
