The Southdale YMCA in Edina is proud to present the 30th Anniversary concert of fDeluxe (formerly known as The Family) at the legendary Dakota Jazz Club, 1010 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis. Proceeds from this special performance on November 24 will help the largest YMCA in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis-St. Paul to raise funds so that those who need the services of the Y will have access to their quality programs, activities, and facilities.To commemorate the 30th Anniversary of “The Family”, fDeluxe will perform the 8 original songs on The Family album. Originally signed to Prince’s Paisley Park Records, the album charted in the Billboard top 15 and provided 2 hit singles including Screams of Passion (#9) and High Fashion (#34), as well as the original version of the hit Nothing Compares 2 U (later released by Sinead O’Connor.)

Back in 2009, The Family reunited and fDeluxe was born. fDeluxe will also be playing songs from their more recent records Gaslight, AM Static, and Live and Tight as A Funk Fiends Fix.This special performance features original members of The Family and current members of fDeluxe including singer St. Paul Peterson, saxophonist Eric Leeds, and drummer/guitar player Jellybean Johnson. They support the YMCA’s desire for everyone in the community to have access to program and services including childcare, water safety, disease prevention and job training. Annually the YMCA raises funds to support the goal of never turning anyone away based on financial status. fDeluxe front man St. Paul Peterson states, ”Its hard to believe it was 30 years ago that this life changing record was released. It’s still as funky now as it was then. We all look forward to celebrating this occasion by performing the original record. We love being a part of this year’s fundraising campaign for the Southdale YMCA. We are honored to support such an important cause.”
