Nutz Oar Boltz
Feb 15 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm


Nutz Oar Boltz is the real deal when it comes to blues.  Led by front man Timmer Blue Horn, the group is a seasoned bevy of skilled blues musicians.

Timmer is the main man, a fixture in the blues world of the northlands – a renowned singer, songwriter, and harp player who has played in blues bands since the last ice age receded.  Many remember Timmer from some of his former bands called Out of the Blue (OOTB), which ranged from biting electric strings with horns to acoustic roots guitars.  Many of Timmer’s original songs draw from the heartaches of his own life, and his blues covers pay tribute to the great blues stars of yesteryear.

Timmer has pulled together Nutz Oar Boltz as his current project – talented musicians who have graced an endless parade of dusty stages:  Greg Smokefish Lee (lead blues guitar), Chris Flask (sax and guitar), Craig Fingers (keyboards), Rattlesnake Richard (bass), and Joe Ride (drums).  It’s the real deal.   

Eugine Roszo
Feb 16 @ 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm

Eugine Roszo is a local Ukrainian born singer/songwriter and recording artist performing under the name “Roszo”. His original content is heavily influenced by his upbringing in Northeast Minneapolis, and by his connection to dance, painting, and creative writing. Roszo released his first EP worldwide in 2016, which quickly earned him a following on Spotify, Facebook, and Instagram.  His dance-infused music video for the title track “Give it All” received acclaim from the Minnesota dance community, and a live presentation of the choreography (performed by Roszo himself) was included in the 2017 Minnesota Fringe Festival.

Roszo has studied songwriting under Judy Stakee at her workshop in San Francisco, guitar with Minnesota favorite Joey Flip, annually attends the CDbaby DIY musician conference, and is a volunteer with the Minnesota Music Coalition. Roszo is a regular at the Coffee Shop Northeast, Underground Music Cafe, and Blarney’s Downtown. He actively donates his talent to the community and can be seen at fundraisers for various Twin Cities Non-profit organizations. Upcoming engagements include a new EP and video content to be released in 2018.
