While I was Minnesota I was able to attend and rock out at the Basilica of St. Mary. The block party is hosted by a local radio station Cities 97 to raise money for a gorgeous church in downtown Minneapolis. Cities 97 is the best radio station ever! yep... EVER! they always have great music new and old, and they have interviews and live sets with some killer artists.
The Jayhawks were the second band to play on the Main Stage. The Jayhawks are originally from The Twin Cities so most people are familiar with them. They debuted in the 1980's so I haven't really heard much of their music although I did enjoy it.
David Gray was the headliner on Friday night. He totally rocked! and has a great sense of humor and even decided that he was going to do a header with a GIANT beach ball going around the crowd. One of his more popular songs is "Babylon" on his first well known album White Ladder, He also played many of his songs from the more recent album Draw The Line. If you haven't listened to him before, you should!
UP NEXT: More Basilica block party, the culinary tour and baseball.
