Exploring the musical legacy of Prince and beyond
This summer Bands on the Boulevard features local acts from the First Avenue scene. On July 30, the band Nooky Jones brings sophisticated soul to the stage.
Described by NPR's Heavy Rotation as "equal parts Stevie Wonder, D'Angelo and Prince," Nooky Jones combines different styles of music with intimate vocals, intricate horn arrangements and tight rhythms.
During Bands on the Boulevard, enjoy a free outdoor concert every Tuesday night in July. Bring a lawn chair and pack a picnic or purchase food from the terrace grill. Come early and take advantage of free admission to the exhibit First Avenue: Stories of Minnesota's Mainroom from 3 to 8 pm.
Bands on the Boulevard is presented by Xcel Energy and The Current. The First Avenue exhibit is made possible in part by presenting sponsor, Baird.
