This past October minimalist music pioneer, Steve Reich, turned 80 years old, and ever since, major cities around the globe, have held musical celebrations honoring Mr. Reich’s invaluable contributions to contemporary music.   It seemed that the party bus would stop short of the Twin Cities until local musician and Steve Reich fan, Cody McKinney, decided to throw his own party. He enlisted the help of friend, local luminary, and percussion legend JT Bates, who knows a thing or two about hosting creative music events.

Every Monday in April, The Icehouse restaurant and live music venue, will play host to nearly 30 local musicians performing over four decades of Steve Reich pieces.  This “Vignette Festival” is presented as part of JT Bates’ Monday night Jazz Implosion series, which regularly plays host to some of the most unique improvisors from Minnesota and around the country.
