Ticket to Brasil

TICKET TO BRASIL is a Bossa Nova, Afro-Brazilian Samba and Latin Jazz Fusion project created around a collective love for the celebration of rhythm and for the spirit of experimentation. The group was founded in 1998 by classical and contemporary jazz guitarist and composer Pavel Jany, and is based in Minneapolis/Saint Paul, Minnesota.

They regularly perform at Summer concerts at Lake Harriet Bandshell and Minnehaha Park. PPERRIA neighbors and friends: you do not want to miss this one!!

Dance, sway, or just sit back, and relax while listening to an intoxicating tapestry of elegant Bossa Nova, groovy, Latin Jazz, and hot Afro-Brazilian Samba.

Tuesday, August 20th, 7:30p.m.


Hailing from the sultry savannas of Colombia and the warm beaches of Panama, Tropicante's lead singers, Karin Stein and Ed East, will keep you energized for hours with the sound of popular Latin beats.

Tropicante is a 4-musician ensemble which has traveled nationwide and internationally, bringing smiles to thousands with its contagious and upbeat music. Lets listen in and have some fun.

Old Time Pals: Adam Granger, Bob Douglas & Pop Wagner

Old Time Pals

Their music is a blend of old-timey string band, bluegrass, swing, and old country, with a dash of originals thrown in for good measure. A highlight of their show is the comfortable--and usually funny--repartee that surfaces among the three between songs. You'll hear guitar, fiddle, mandolin and other creative instruments. Come and enjoy.
