Dusty's on Friday!

Hello friends! I will be playing a set this Friday, March 7th at Dusty's in fabulous Northeast Minneapolis, where I will be accompanied by the finest bass player on either side of the Mississippi, Mr. Nick Salisbury! We will be opening for singer/songwriter/nicestguyever Doug Collins and his band The Receptionists. It's going to be a great night of beer, tasty Dago sandwiches and live music -- what's not to love? Hope to see you there!

Thanks and Happy 2014!

Happy New Year! It was a great run of shows to close out the year, and I would just like to say thanks to everyone who made it out -- I couldn't have had more fun, and it was great to see so many familiar faces! And a big thanks as well to J.T. Viele, Jim Walsh, and David Booth, as well as the folks at Moto-I, Harriet Brewing, and The Acadia for letting us make a ruckus. See you all soon!

Moto-I tonight, Hootenanny on Thursday

Tonight's the night! Come on down to Moto-I and shake off Monday with some music, fried rice and sake! Joining me tonight will be Nick Salisbury on bass and Blair Krivanek on guitar, and maybe, just maybe, Nick will bust out the ShakerShoe™. Get there early -- doors are at 8:30 and music starts promptly at 9:00 with Johanna Matthews. We'll be on at 9:45, followed by The Gentlemens Anti-Temperance League at 10:30. It's gonna be a great night --don't miss it!

And if that weren't enough, this Thursday, the 19th, it is once again time to hoot! The Mad Ripple Hootenanny is back in it's new weekly home at Harriet Brewing, and the Ripple himself, Jim Walsh, was kind enough to invite me to be part of the festivities. It's gonna be songs, stories and shenanigans with me, Chastity Brown, Shawn Gibbons, David Booth, Mike Gunther and Brad McLemore. The music runs 5:30 - 8:30, and it's FREE! Plus, we'll be in the middle of a brewery, which kinda seems like a win, so come on out and hoot!

Upcoming shows!

I'm excited to announce a couple of upcoming shows!

Monday, December 16, I will be playing the Artists Showcase at Moto-I in Uptown Minneapolis. I will be joined by a couple of the baddest men in town, Nick Salisbury on bass and Blair Krivanek on guitar. Get there early -- music starts promptly at 9:00 with Johanna Matthews, we'll be on at 9:45, followed by The Gentlemens Anti-Temperance League at 10:30. It's gonna be a fun night with lots of great music!

Then, on Sunday, December 22, I will be playing at the Acadia Cafe in Minneapolis. Joining me for this show will be the man himself, Mike Medicine Horse on guitar. It's been tough to get this guy out of the house, so come on down and see what amounts to a musical unicorn! Music starts at 8:00 with David Booth, followed by Aaron Tinjum at 9:00, with us closing out the night at 10:00. It's gonna be another great night of music!

So that's what's what. I hope you can make it out to one or both of the shows -- I promise a good, good time!

Singing, songwriting and open mics in Minneapolis

Jim Walsh, music writer extraordinaire, has written a great article on the open mic scene here in Minneapolis. He made the rounds with singer/songwriter/nicest-guy-you'll-ever-meet Doug Collins and paints a pretty fantastic portrait of a man kicking out the jams, two at a time. I managed to rate an incredibly kind mention as well. So get reading, and then get out to some open mics!

Stone Arch Bridge Festival 2013

It's that time of year again! I'm excited to announce that Peter Lochner & The Brothers I Never Had will once again be playing the Stone Arch Bridge Festival at St. Anthony Main. This seems to be the one time of the year I can get the full band together, so we're going to make the most of it and have a good, good time! We've got Jordan Carlson on drums, Blair Krivanek on guitar, Nick Salisbury on bass, Stook! on piano, and, if that weren't enough, we've got Caleb Garn making his triumphant return to the stage on lap steel -- the Gooch is back!

We play on Fathers Day, Sunday, June 16 from 2:15 - 3pm at the City Pages Central Avenue Bridge Stage. This particular stage is beer garden adjacent, so if that doesn't entice you to make it out, I'm not sure what will. I mean besides all the other awesome bands, great food and blocks and blocks of artwork. What's not to love? Corn dogs, people! We'll see you there!

Date: Sunday, June 16, 2013
Time: 2:15 - 3pm
Place: City Pages Central Avenue Bridge Stage at the Stone Arch Bridge Festival
