MUSICIANS4MUSICIANS PRESENTS: RE-VI-VAL
July 27 @ 8:00 pm - July 28 @ 8:00 pm$15
Musicians4musicians, founded by Kathleen Johnson in 2009, was established to support musicians through the rough times with gigs, health/wellness, and even housing. “Musicians4Musicians” attempts to help cut down the fees that just don’t make sense anymore and make event planners, buyers, and entertainment committees shy away from hiring LIVE MUSICIANS! We like to get right down and to the point when hosting special events. We love to help fund-raise and give back to the community, keep LIVE music ALIVE and just plain ole have an old fashion “HOUSE PARTY!” We love being and performing together and accept what we do as a blessing especially when we impact so many with our God given gifts. We always have a wonderful time doing what we love to do, be it rehearsing or PERFORM LIVE ON STAGE together with the best that Minneapolis has to offer and in the world has to offer; in LIVE ENTERTAINMENT!
Kathleen Johnson the founder of “Musicians4Musicians”, lead vocalist for “The Rage Project, featuring BKS”, “The Ladies of Jazz” and “Divas for Dads” and the list goes on. Kathleen brings together some of the most sought after and talented musicians, to perform and celebrate for a good cause!
She is an American singer, vocalist and band leader. Her musical resume includes working with artists many bands in the Twin Cities music scene, and mentoring artists. In the early eighties, she formed the band Myst with her sisters Mocha and Karen and aunt Rhonda Johnson which evolved into Best Kept Secret (BKS) in the nineties when Karen Johnson left and Kathleen became the lead vocalist.
She also was a member of TKO, a band formed by her young brother Kirk Johnson.
She worked with Prince in the nineties providing background vocals on many songs for him or associated artists.
She mentors, holds workshops and turns over her stage to up and coming new artists that are working on their craft and want to get comfortable and good at it! These artists work on their music with Kathleen and then have the opportunity to perform regularly with seasoned professional musicians in an attempt to learn LIVE MUSIC PERFORMANCE!
Kathleen puts on the playing field great side by side seasoned professionals and the artist that is shy and “Green” and comes up with a hell of a show! We put together shows and musical projects for fundraisers, corporate and special events, club dates, musicals, festivals, home goings or any event that has the need and desire for LIVE entertainment, but may have a limited budget. Kathleen has learned from the best and wants to share it with everyone!
RE-VI-VAL is a project that brings to “The Live Music Stage” the music of the 90’s, featuring 80’s artists and music a 70’s groove.
Let’s face it, the 90’s music was the new 70’s. This was a time when the guy and girl groups came back with a bang; singing tight harmony, stepping & dancing in sync’, producing energetic, vibrant & entertaining shows “Live On Stage”. The quality of the Voice was high and the Grooves were laid in the cut by using many samples from the music of the 70’s great musicians and recordings.
It is time to continue to teach the young people where the inspiration and origins of much of the music from the 90’s came from while at the same time pumping up the volume at the celebrations, festivals, and events full of people who love to get down.
