Duluth native Dave Mehling formed the Fontanelles with Darin Rieland after they met at the 400 Bar in Minneapolis and bonded over their shared love of “both kinds of music — country and western.” They took their band in the rock direction, however. After various lineup changes, bassist Beau Jeffrey and drummer Jason McGlone have joined the group and a debut album is expected this year. Expect no Prince covers, per the band.
