Rooted in vocal harmonies, acoustic and electric guitar, piano, banjo, and an eclectic range of additional instrumentation and soulful arrangements, Beta Radio’s Americana-folk sound is the result of a decade-long collaboration between Ben Mabry and Brent Holloman.

Hey guys -- the BLB needs a quick description of our weird new sketch show. Something that says The Rinky Dink Show is a repertory sketch comedy show filled with the Twin Cities’ best comedic voices working out their very specific issues for YOUR benefit (the “you” being the audience)! Sketch. Stand-up. Song. Some serious silly, slightly off-center. Whatever it is, it has to look professional and glossy. Not something just copied and pasted from an email. Any ideas?
Light up the night at this peaceful, yet memorable outdoor event. Design your lantern and set it free on the still water, delve into delicious food from a range of local food trucks, jam to music and more.
