THE GINA POWERS BAND  With: Max Johnk Quartet
The Gina Powers Band plays their own original brand of Americana and country music.  Working on their debut album, this is a band going places, driven by Powers’ rich, and powerful, vocals.  Opening the program is Fargo’s Max Johnk Quartet, a jazz quartet extraordinaire!  Hailing from Fargo, the quartet mixes standards with original compositions… all played with bravura virtuosity and impeccable style.  A ”swinging” musical treat not to be missed!
