Danielle Nicole Band back in town Friday
The Danielle Nicole Band will perform Friday at Whiskey Bones Roadhouse, 3820 N. Broadway, Rochester.
A former member, with her brothers, of Trampled Under Foot, Nicole formed her own band and released a six-song disc, “EP,” last March. The New Orleans-flavored songs represent a departure of sorts for Nicole, who was reared in Kansas City with its solid blues tradition.
Nicole, who previously performed under her family name of Danielle Schnebelen, was named Best Instrumentalist — Bass at the 2014 Blues Music Awards.
Music Friday goes from 8:30 p.m. to midnight. No cover charge.
Riverside slows pace Sunday with Concert Band
After a blazing start to the Down by the Riverside season, things turn more sedate Sunday when the Rochester Concert Band and Choir performs in Mayo Park.
The season opened with concerts by the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Firefall and Eric Paslay, the latter drawing a crowd estimated at 11,100 last Sunday.
The Concert Band and Choir won’t draw nearly that many, but should provide a relaxing evening of music in the park. The 50-piece symphonic wind ensemble and 50-voice concert choir are directed by Chuck Blattner. The program will include “Let it Go” from the movie “Frozen,” Norman Dello Joio’s “Scenes from the Louvre,” and Ralph Ford’s “Suite from Video Games Live.”
Music starts at 7 p.m.
Upcoming Down by the Riverside:
Aug. 9 Sonny Knight & the Lakers
Aug. 16 Lucius
Aug. 23 America
Magraw brings mixed bag of musical styles to Crossings
ZUMBROTA — Guitarist Dean Magraw who continues to be one of the most eclectic artists in Minnesota music, will perform at 8 p.m. Aug. 8 at Crossings at Carnegie, 320 East Ave., Zumbrota.
Magraw ranges across a variety of musical styles, from jazz to folk to rock to blues, in a playing style that often seems effortless. He sprinkles it all with witticisms and humorous tales.
His ability to play so many types of music is one reason Magraw has played with artists as diverse as the punk-folk group Boiled in Lead, Irish band Altan, classical violinist Nigel Kennedy and Minnesota mandolin player Peter Ostroushko.
Tickets are $15 in advance, $18 the day of the show.
It’s suddenly lovely for a concert in Chatfield

Tickets are $20; 507-867-2927.
