Willie Murphy & Friends
Willie Murphy & Friends
Get ready to dance as The Hook presents a night of live R&B / Soul / Blues with the legendary Willie Murphy and band.  Willie has forged a musical resume as a singer, producer, arranger, performer, and songwriter.  He was named one of the three charter members of the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame along with Bob Dylan and Prince. 

Willie's collaboration with folk-blues legend "Spider" John Koerner, "Running, Jumping, Standing Still," is acclaimed as an all-time folk/blues classic.  Willie produced an album on the Warner label for Bonnie Raitt, and he's performed to audiences across the globe, including headlining major festivals in Europe.
The Jon Rodine Band
Jon Rodine is a Minnesota-based singer/songwriter. Drawing on sources like Dan Penn, Doug Sahm, Bob Dylan and beyond, his music is song-driven, a blend of Americana, groove-oriented rock’n’roll and country soul.

His most recent album "Last Star" - his first collection of original material - has been getting notice around the country. “Eleven songwriting gems” says Mondophonic.com, but “his strongest asset is his voice”.

He’s shared the bill with artists like Ralph Stanley, Fred Eaglesmith, Tom Russell, The Pines and Jimmy LaFave. He plays and has recorded with some the finest musicians in the Midwest - Dave Ray & Tony Glover, Erik Koskinen & Molly Maher, Paul Cebar, Benson Ramsey (Pines), Steve Kaul (Brass Kings), and Dan “Daddy Squeeze” Newton.
