The Parkway Theater says
Flamin’ Oh’s
Led by frontman Robert Wilkinson, the Flamin’ Oh’s burst onto the Minneapolis music scene in 1980 and thrilled music (and early MTV video fans) with Billboard charting hits, including “I Remember Romance.” Not content to rest on their early success, the Flamin’ Oh’s continue to record and deliver high energy live performances to great acclaim. The band’s latest EP, Hear And Now, was released in October 2015. The Star Tribune praises their work as “Hard edged Stones-like rock’n’roll. East Coast street anthems coupled with Midwestern optimism and enthusiasm.”

The April Fools
The April Fools began as a studio project for singer/songwriter Brian Drake, who intended to record a batch of his songs with help from
a wide network of players to flesh out the tunes. Guitar, bass, and drums would be augmented by horns, strings,
woodwinds, keyboards, vocalists, and more depending on the specific song. The songs themselves spanned a broad
spectrum—rock to straight-up county to alt-country/Americana to blue-eyed soul to Brit-pop to folk to 70’s AM radio and more.

The four band members got together for their first jam on September 15, 2013 with the agreement that this was simply a project
—a project with a beginning and an end. Then, a funny thing happened; they became a band. The ease of collaboration—the
charmed chemistry that presented itself—was apparent almost immediately and they all knew, without saying anything about it,
this was something they wanted to continue to do as an ensemble.

Finding a cohesive thread with which to bring together those diverse genres, they then began recording sessions for what
would become their debut album. Fast-forward and here it is. Ladies and gentlemen; The April Fools.
