Hello All,

Welcome to the April 2024 edition of Marv's Music Mail newsletter.

Above is a picture from the stage at Washington Square in White Bear Lake, MN, on St. Paddy's Day, 2024.  Notice all the green and happy people!  March was a great month of shows for Marv & Kaat with fantastic audiences at places such as the Lakeville Arts Center, MetroNOME Brewing, Iron Exchange Brewery, Heavy Rotation Brewery, the Chart House, Cannon River Winery and more.  Thanks to all who came out to shows the past month and made them so fun.  Also thanks to all the new subscribers that will getting the newsletter for the first time this month.

Shane Martin's Songs of the South Alabama Tribute Show makes a rare southern metro appearance this Friday April 5th, 8:30 pm at Bogart's in Apple Valley, MN.  Here's the special deal on tickets!  Buy tickets in advance online at the website:   https://www.bogartsentertainmentcenter.com/   and use the case sensitive coupon code:  bobfm   for 50% off the entire order of tickets.  I always enjoy playing the show, it's so much fun for band and audience alike, and we won't be doing another anywhere until June.  So get your tickets now to hear all your favorite Alabama tunes that you forgot that you knew!

Marv & Kaat have a limited number of shows this month which allows us more time to work on upcoming record releases.  The shows that we are doing include our monthly stops at the Iron Exchange Brewery and the Chart House as well as the Main Street Sports Bar and Washington Square.  See the schedule below for dates and times.  At the end of the month we're planning a trip to Nashville to work with hit songwriter, singer and producer Phil Solem of The Rembrandts.  I'm really looking forward to getting together with my old friend and introducing Kaat to him.  Hopefully we'll be able to put the finishing touches on some of our tracks and maybe start some new ones.

Phil and I go way back to meeting at a club in Northeast Minneapolis called Gramma B's, right on the Mississippi river, where I was playing the upstairs room and he was playing downstairs in, I think 1982.  I was in a band called Steele Cats.  In '83 we were both working on new projects and we decided to share a rehearsal space together in downtown Minneapolis.  I was interested in having him in my new band and he finally agreed.  That band was called MG & the Untouchables which played many shows but broke up in 1984.  I didn't see Phil for about a year, but we reconnected at a show at the Uptown Bar in Minneapolis in which Elvis Costello was also just hanging out.  Phil and I started writing songs together and later I was playing in his band.  That band was called Phil Solem & the Rembrandts.  We've been "Friends" now for over 40 years!

The list below is everything that is planned so far for April.  Please check the website for any updates.

Thanks so much for your interest in the music.  Looking forward to seeing you in April and the months ahead!

Peace & Love,
