Free and Easy Band Live


Jan 5, 2013
08:00 PM until 11:00 PM


Free and Easy, an innovative Twin Cities’ music original that changed the landscape of live music in Twin Cities night clubs, is back and better than ever. The concept for Free & Easy was simple: use studio players and singers, write “hip” arrangements, and play music that makes you want to dance.

Free and Easy was inducted into the Minnesota Hall of Fame in May 2008 and features David Rodriguez, Lauren McAurthur, and Jimmy Rodriguez on vocals, Dick Hiebeler on bass, and a blazing horn section led by Dick Jorgensen (lead trumpet), Deone Johnson (trumpet/bone/keys), along with Aaron Moe on reeds and Bobby Hirte (trumpet/trombone/percussion). Scott Bolin keyboard player and singer extraordinaire has recently joined the band and Free and Easy is ready to awaken a new generation of music lovers.

Free and Easy cut their teeth on Tower of Power, Earth Wind and Fire, and all things funky, and you’ll love their takes on Cee Lo Green, Bruno Mars, Black-Eyed Peas, Mayer Hawthorne, and Robin Thicke. If you want to take a walk on retro side you’ll love their Jersey Boys Medley and might see a little Michael Jackson break out right after a Prince groove.
