Al ChurchSinger/songwriter Al Church played Homegrown back in 2001 at the historic NorShor Theatre with his high school band the Spoogees. Fast forward 14 years and a few Minneapolis rock ensembles later and this engaging performer has metamorphosed into a pop and R&B man. Mixing the infectious grooves of modern indie-soul music (see the Postal Service) with the recording techniques inspired by the Motown sound (see Otis Redding) has resulted in the funky-fresh new album Next Summer. He will be joined by Evan Fox on bass, Cole Pulice on sax, Levi Stugelmeyer on drums and Matt Sandstedt on keys.
