Anyone who frequented Rex Bar circa 2012 no doubt became spoiled, even took for granted, that Dave Adams and his eight Ripples brought their dance-friendly big-band grooves to the stage every Thursday. Now that Duluth no longer has a standing Big Wave date, fans are sure to mark their calendars for each gig. Adams’ soulful vocals are backed by the rhythm section of Alex Piazza, Andy Olmstead, Brian Wells and David Mennes. Steve Rogers, Matt Wasmund, David Rode and Alex Nordehn blow the horns. Between their favorite funk/soul classics and lively originals, audiences are tempted to get in, get on, get up and/or get down.
