We're excited to announce the great entertainers for the Mark Kinion for State Rep Campaign Kickoff Party! Join us at George's Majestic Lounge at 2 PM Sunday, February 4th for Emily Rowland, Jesse Dean Rocks, & Phunbags Comedy Improv!
Emily Rowland is one half of musical duo Melody Pond. Her musical bandmate Candy Lee has her due date February 4th and so she will not be able to attend. We wish Candy the best on her upcoming baby! Emily will be performing solo, as she does often. Emily combines her love of musicals and harmonies with modern influences of folk, jazz, and blues to create an original sound both nostalgic and contemporary in nature. Combining her catchy and sugary sweet melodies with heartfelt, poignant, and largely autobiographical lyrics lends Rowland's songwriting an honest and fresh style. Rowland’s upbringing singing in both choirs and bands gives her voice a unique ability to both blend and weave as part of a group or lead as a powerful vocalist. Rowland has performed with brother Josephus and the love revival revolution and has opened for Elephant Revival, Ben Miller Band, Amy Lavere, and the Lost Gonzo Band with Candy Lee and the Sweets (now Melody Pond). She and fellow songwriter Candy Lee have been singing together for the past 9 years and perform as the duo, Melody Pond.
Jesse Dean Rocks is a Winslow native recently named the Top Independent Label Rising Star. Jesse Dean’s blues-rock originals showcase soulful bass lines, muscular lead and rhythm guitar, vibrating riffs and sultry jams. They reflect a blend influences from Mark Knopfler and Gary Rossington to Bonnie Raitt, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Warren Haynes and Cake. His are edgy songs of the South, smooth and blue, soaked in the sounds of the delta, revved up Texas boogie, richly electric rough-hewn southern rock played solid and clean.

The emcees are Mike Thomas and Julie Gabel of Phunbags Comedy Improv. We literally cannot think of a better duo to keep the good times rolling!
We'll be done in plenty of time for you to catch the Minnesota Super Bowl 2018 kickoff at 5:30 PM. What better way to get ready for the big game? It's TWO kickoffs in one day!
We can't wait to see you!
