Alive & Kickin, the Twin Cities’ premier high-energy, senior rock ensemble is back for its annual musical production of songs and stories that will move, uplift, and leave you wanting more.

The 35-member ageism defying ensemble are ready to rock you with an ALL NEW Original Production – The 70’s – a hit-packed show featuring songs from KISS, Gordon Lightfoot, Donna Summer, ABBA and more. Celebrate this pivotal era with our cast as they sing and share stories from their time in the ’70s and their perspectives from living in their 70th decade. They will re-introduce you to the music you love and inspire you to find your own voice and purpose in life at any age. With only four performances, be sure to get your tickets soon. June 6-9th, Bloomington Center for the Arts.

Join us for the Friday June 7th show and stay for the after party! Appetizers and fun included in the ticket price. Meet the cast and creatives of A&K, dance to the music of the ’70s, relive memories and create new ones. A&K is community serving nonprofit and tickets to this special evening help support our programs. Beer and wine for purchase. Free parking for all performances.

Alive & Kickin (A&K) is a Minneapolis-based 501(c)(3) rock ensemble featuring the talents of members aged 60-99+ years young. Its mission is to “give a voice to seniors through personal stories and popular songs.” The production process is not for the faint of heart. Music rehearsals are 5 hours per week, Sep. – June. Members learn and memorize more than 20 songs and write personal stories which are professionally recorded. Auditions are held annually in July.

A&K exists at the intersection of the performing arts and senior services. Members perform and receive professional vocal and music training, with many boasting the physical and mental health benefits of participation.

The Cast performs small community concerts year-round at senior centers, senior and assisted living facilities, and at corporate, public, and private events.

A free, participatory monthly SingOUT! program is held the 2nd Monday of every month at the Cora McCorvey Center for Health and Wellness in Minneapolis. All are welcome.
