Mid West Music Fest to Present ‘Brass on the River” Fundraiser

Mid West Music Fest (MWMF) is set to host a fall fundraiser concert in Levee Park in Winona on Saturday, October 14, 2017. Brass on the River will feature music from Twin Cities bands McNasty Brass Band and Jaedyn James and the Hunger. On hand will be food trucks and beer for sale from Winona’s Island City Brewing Co. and La Crosse’s  Pearl Street Brewery. Doors open at 6:00 and the music starts at 7:00. Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 the day of the show and can be purchased at www.midwestmusicfest.org. The event is sponsored by Leighton Broadcasting, Island City Brewing Co. and Pearl Street Brewery.

McNasty Brass Band is a collection of Minneapolis/Saint Paul based horn players and percussionists that fuse the Minneapolis sound with the spirit of New Orleans. Jaedyn James & The Hunger is a 10 piece, raw funk, rock n roll, soul band who burst onto the Minneapolis music scene in the fall of 2014. The Hunger brings the heat; Jaedyn James, a fiery sparkplug- ignites her band and audiences.
