Author Rick Shefchik - "Everybody's Heard About the Bird..." Book Release Party & Jam Session

An all-star lineup of some of the most successful and accomplished rock ‘n’ roll musicians in Twin Cities history will join Rick Shefchik as he introduces his new book, "Everybody’s Heard About the Bird: The True Story of 1960s Rock 'n' Roll in Minnesota," at the Electric Fetus on Wednesday, November 11, at 7 p.m.

Rick will host a discussion and jam session with Tony Andreason of the Trashmen (“Surfin Bird”), Dale Menten and Tom Klugherz of the Gestures (“Run, Run, Run”), Jim Johnson and Doni Larson of the Underbeats and Gypsy (“Footstompin’,” “Gypsy Queen”), Jim Donna of the Castaways (“Liar, Liar”), Larry Wiegand of the Rave-Ons, South 40 and Crow (“Evil Woman”), Phil Berdahl of the Stillroven, Ron Butwin of the Escapades and Mike Waggoner of the Bops. Afterwards, Rick and the musicians will sign copies of the book.

"Everybody's Heard about the Bird" is the first comprehensive history to trace the evolution of Minnesota 1960s rock and roll. This behind-the-scenes, up-close-and-personal account relates how a handful of Minnesota rock bands erupted out of a small Midwest market and made it big. From Augie Garcia and Bobby Vee to The Trashmen and the Castaways, "Everybody’s Heard about the Bird" reveals how this monumental era of Minnesota rock music in the 1960s evolved.

This event is free and open to all ages. We hope you'll join us for this very special evening.
