The Criss Starr Xperience:
The Criss Starr Xperience! band are a group of musicians from Minneapolis, MN dedicated to keeping alive the 'Minneapolis Sound.' After a chance meeting at a hotel with Morris Day of the Time, Criss Starr moved to the twin cities and began working with Matt Dr. Fink and Bobby Z Rivkin, former members of prince's band The Revolution. The end result is an eponymous 3 song 'Demo for Prince' called Yours 4Ever which includes the Bee Gees classic remake "Too Much Heaven" & the rockin' "What cha' Say?"
Tickets To Brasil:
TICKET TO BRASIL was founded in 1999 by classical and contemporary jazz guitarist and composer Pavel Jany, and it is based in Minneapolis / Saint Paul, Minnesota. This international, unique and well established ensemble has performed at a number of local as well as international events, including: The Winnipeg Jazz Festival, Hot Summer Jazz Festival, MN Orchestra SommerFest, Twin Cities Jazz Festival, Sioux Falls Jazz Festival, Grand Marais Jazz Festival, Ordway World Stage Festival, Bloomington Latin Music Festival, MN Winter Jazz Festival, MN State Fair, MN Global Jazz Festival, and many more. The group has opened for such renowned artists as Karrin Allyson and Cibelle. Since 2001, Ticket To Brasil has released four CDs.
PAVEL JANY, a classical, jazz, and international music guitarist, composer and percussionist, was first introduced to Brazilian music through the works of Heitor Villa-Lobos and legendary guitarist Baden Powell, while he was studying classical guitar in Europe. He was further inspired by a number of bossa nova artists, and by the masters of Brazilian fusion, such as Airto Moreira, Flora Purim and Egberto Gismonti, to name a few. His interest in samba and Afro-Brazilian music deepened during his three year stay in West Africa. He also traveled extensively to South America, and while his long musical journey encompasses many various styles, Brazilian music remains his main domain.
