The band and it's members
Kurt Jorgensen Band
Creating a wide range of truly original music and maintaining a
devoted fan base are two big hurdles for any band. For the award-winning
Kurt Jorgensen Band (KJB), these hurdles are taken in stride. Formed
in 1998, this hard-working Minneapolis-based group continues to
convert first-time audiences into long-time fans.
It's not rare for the band to play 6 nights a week-- they can be
seen in several incarnations besides the 7-member "full band"
configuration. On summer Sunday afternoons, as many as 10 musicians
can be found crammed on the stage at P.D. Pappy's in Stillwater
for a family-friendly affair. Another option, the 4-piece stripped
down ensemble, referred to as the "acoustic" band, plays
Tuesday nights at Nye's in Minneapolis to a more hip urban
crowd. You can even catch a 2-man show, Kurt and Z, if you watch
the schedule carefully. Each type of show is a little different
and highlights the band's diverse array of talent. (See THE
SHOWS tab for more details.)
Come out and catch a performance! There's a bit of something for everyone.
