ABOUT THE STREET BAND
Formed as a 5-piece in 1983 in Fargo North Dakota, The Street Band hit the road full-time bringing their “harder side of rock” covers and originals to 13 states around the Midwest. Having both male and female lead singers and being a crack band musically, they were an audience favorite wherever they performed! When the 90’s came, The Street Band disbanded and the members found other musical outlets such as variety, country, and blues music and although apart, they all have stayed active players in the game. Enter 2020. The Street Band has reformed to do a series of one-off shows showcasing proven 80’s rock / pop covers they did back in the day, including hits by Loverboy and INXS.
The Street Band – “Rockin’ Up Your Alley.”
ABOUT ROCK FROM THE HEART
Pete and Amy Johnson formed Rock from the Heart after Pete was diagnosed with an aortic aneurysm and aortic valve disease, and they struggled to find consistent information on the disease. “We love rock music and music brings people together, so we decided a great way to raise awareness would be to hold a benefit concert,” Pete and Amy said. Our first two events in Minneapolis were well received, and it was tough having to cancel the 2020 event. We are thrilled to be returning to the Pantages Theatre in 2022!”
Rock from the Heart’s mission is to support families from diagnosis to recovery, connecting them with resources and information that is often hard to find. Through concerts and education events, Rock from the Heart uses music to inspire and provide hope to people affected by aortic disease.
"Knowledge is power when it comes to your health, and aortic conditions are not exception. We want to share the details of our journey so people aren't left searching for answers." --Pete and Amy Johnson, Rock from the Heart founders
