I’m not going to lie, I’m going crazy from not having shows. Going from a show literally every night to no shows for the forseeable future was a complete shock to my system, my mental health, and my cats so I’m beyond excited to announce that Crooners is doing a drive in concert series starting on Friday, May 8th.
Music will be provided by the amazing Jennifer and Reed Grimm. Born to a musical family, Reed Grimm has been performing on the stage since the remarkable age of 2 years old. Reed studied music and philosophy at UW-La Crosse where he co-founded the band Shoeless Revolution in which he is both lead singer and drummer. Through Shoeless Revolution, as well as performing with family members, friends and others, Reed has toured extensively around the country. Reed continues to pursue any and all musical adventures that come his way.
Some of Jennifer’s credits include performing at Carnegie Hall; Johnny Mercer Songbook Series at the Ordway; Steerage Song at the Fitzgerald Theater; earning the #2 spot on Aruba’s year-end top 100 countdown; performing in New York City with shining press in The Village Voice; opening up for Oleta Adams at the St. Vincent Blues Festival; performing on Garrison Keillor’s (creator of A Prairie Home Companion) Rhubarb Show; sharing performance events with Huey Lewis and The News, Michael Buble, and Martina McBride; starring in the Ordway’s production of My Way, A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra; being the voice of the World Figure Skating Champions Tour theme song; and singing as a featured artist on many albums including Gene Adams’ Jazz Anthology, Power of 10, The Minnesota Boychoir, Century Big Band, New York’s Jonathan Rayson, Norah Long, Theater Latte Da, Girl Singers of the Hit Parade, Mark Croft, Tim Patrick and the Blue Eyes Band, Gourmet Jazz and LA’s Holly Long.
