Minnesota’s Honky Tonk Heroes at The Grand

Minnesota’s premiere honky-tonk band, TRAILER TRASH, will perform live in concert on Friday, February 11 at The Grand Event Center in historic downtown Northfield. Presented by the Northfield Downtown Development Corporation (NDDC) and the Northfield Rotary Club, the event is open to the public. Admission is $10 at the door.

Doors open at 7:45 p.m. with a swing-style dance lesson and demonstration presented by the Carleton College swing-dance club, The Rugcutters, at 8 p.m. TRAILER TRASH takes to the stage at 8:30 p.m.

“The NDDC and the Rotary are partnering together to throw a party and celebrate our love for this fantastic community,” says Jessica Paxton, NDDC board member. “And what better way to celebrate, than with one of the Twin Cities’ absolute best live bands!”

“It’s a great way to kick-off the Valentine’s Day weekend,” adds Ross Currier, NDDC executive director. “Bring your sweetie down to The Grand for an evening of toe-tappin’, finger-snappin’ music and dancing!”

Promises TRAILER TRASH lead singer and guitarist Nate Dungan, “The show will be spectacular—satisfaction 100% guaranteed!”

Since 1993, TRAILER TRASH has drawn enthusiastic crowds at the legendary Lee’s Liquor Lounge in downtown Minneapolis. Best known for playing country music, the band also swings, rocks and grooves with the many other styles from the American hit parade.

The six members of TRAILER TRASH enjoy turning new generations on to the classic sound of American roots music. Their contagious enthusiasm and obvious enjoyment onstage have earned TRAILER TRASH the reputation of being Minnesota’s premier honky-tonk band.

After seventeen years, TRAILER TRASH has achieved an important position in Minnesota musical history. They have performed at Jesse Ventura’s Inaugural Ball at the Target Center, played the opening of the new Guthrie Theater, and have entertained countless thousands at their annual Trashy

Little Christmas Show. The band has provided the soundtrack to hundreds of Twin Cities courtships and wedding receptions. Somewhere during it all, the group has also racked up seven Minnesota Music Awards, appeared in two movies, and put out six albums. The band’s website can be found at www.trailertrashmusic.com.
