I soooo WISH I could be there! Thanks for the news! Sounds like an amazing start to a “BIG” year!

I’ll pass on this for now. Will wait until the Paisley Park jams. Hopefully those won’t be at the $200 a pop fee. I understand the cost because the Dakota is a limited/intimate venue so demand will be higher. With Paisley Park you can fit more people in than the Dakota.

drummer auditions is either another tease….where he will play with the band or sheila/hannah and co will have a drum off or local MN peoples will get the chance to funk with the NPG from the backseat!

Sounds like fun at the Paisley Park studio.
MissyPosted at 01:02h, 15 January
The Dakota Jazz Club has no listing of this event on their website calendar. I called just to verify and the person on the telephone advised me there is no Prince jam, rehearsal, auditions, or any other performance(s). What gives?
