The City of Maple Grove presents Concert on the Lawn on Saturday, September 14 at Central Park in Maple Grove, MN! This inaugural event features performances by Gear Daddies, The New Power Generation, The 4onthefloor and Kat Perkins.

About Gear Daddies

Gear Daddies is an Americana/Rock band originally from Austin, Minnesota.   Members Martin Zellar (electric and acoustic guitar, harmonica and vocals), Nick Ciola (bass), Randy Broughten (electric and pedal steel guitar) and James “Billy” Dankert (drums and vocals), played their first shows together in 1984. Currently, in addition to their respective individual pursuits, the guys of Gear Daddies reunite several times a year to perform throughout the Midwest.

About The New Power Generation

The reunion of former members of the New Power Generation (NPG) – including a number of those in the original configuration – was born out of the official Prince Tribute concert in October, 2016. Given the overwhelming response to that historic event, Morris, Sonny T, Tommy Barbarella, Tony M, Damon D, and Levi Seacer met with one of Prince’s former managers to discuss an official reunion in order to bring a live celebration of Prince and his music to ‘fams’ throughout the world. Their intent: to honor their boss, their mentor and his music. The band has since joined forces with other Prince alumni and world class artists to perform their own tribute concerts to their legendary mentor and brother, Prince.

About The 4onthefloor

Joining together in the name of fun & joy, the 4onthefloor bring their well-oiled, high-octane, rock’n’roll to the world with an immediacy rarely seen on stage in the 21st century. The furious delivery ebbs and flows with sing-a-long anthems and breakdowns to soaring guitar solos and unbridled full-bore rock. Camaraderie is a common theme, and stompers are finding like-minded rock’n’rollers at every show.

About Kat Perkins

Originally from Scranton ND, Kat Perkins gained the attention of the local Twin Cities music scene after she relocated to Minneapolis, including with her band Scarlet Haze. She made a musical comeback in 2014 after reaching the finals on Adam Levine’s team on The Voice. Since, she has gone on an average of two military tours per year to perform to troops overseas and sold out venues across the US.
