EVERY FIRST TUESDAY OF THE MONTH
10PM • NO COVER • 21+
A rebellious cadre of Twin Cities jazz and hip hop luminaries, Coloring Time is a musical accident waiting to happen, so to speak. Instrumentalists Casey O’Brien (bass),Graham O’Brien (drums), John Keston (keys), Robert Mulrennen (guitar) and Jon Davis (reeds) pave nebulous jazzways on which vocalist/MCs Joe Horton, Kristoff Krane and Adam Svec race headlong to rapture and epiphany. The group often reinforces its numbers with notable vocal and instrumental guests. Never the same show. Always an adventure!
my favorite way to write, sing, play music, fall in love and live life is when it happens in the moment. without hesitation. without a second look. freestylin. raw. fresh. organic.
i am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason and nothing is ever permanent.
i trust my gut and follow my intuition. at the end of the day, i just wanna sing from where it hurts.
i have had the privilege of working with memebers of Doomtree (Dessa, Lazerbeak and Paper Tiger) and have be fortunate enough to appear with them on 89.3 The Current. i have performed two original tunes on MN Original in 2013. i also have collaborated with members of Heiruspecs and have appeared on Sean McPherson’s solo project, Too Big To Fail (2014) as well as Midway Felix’s, Slow Cold EP (2012) and Something Different (2014).
