A touring experience
One of the best musicians to emerge from the Twin Cities, St. Paul appeared in Purple Rain as a teenage wunderkind, playing keys with The Time on hits like "Jungle Love" and "The Bird." He was hand-picked by Prince himself to be lead singer of The Family (best known for "Nothing Compares 2 U") on Prince's Paisley Park label.
In the tradition of Motown's Funk Brothers, St. Paul has assembled the who's who crew of the
Minneapolis Sound with St. Paul & The Minneapolis Funk All-stars, showcasing those who wrote, produced, performed, or sung on some of the biggest hits from the heyday of electro funk-rock in the Twin Cities.
Their incredible show: “THE MINNEAPOLIS SOUNDS” is now a National Tour.
The All-stars include*:
Jellybean Johnson - Drummer for The Time and The Family.
Dr. Fink - Keyboardist for Prince and the Revolution.
Kirk Johnson - Drummer for Prince and the NPG.
Elisa Fiorillo - Singer for Prince and the NPG.
Horn Heads - Horn section for Prince.
Oliver Leiber - Producer of Paula Abdul and guitarist with Tamara and The Seen.
Jason Peterson DeLaire - Paisley Park House Band, Keys and sax withCarmen Electra.
