Give To The Max Day – Give Back Celebration featuring MAYDA

The Firehouse Performing Arts Center’s Hook & Ladder Theater gratefully celebrated 7-years of non-profit operations in 2023. To commemorate this milestone, The Hook dug back through countless live recordings of concert events from our early years to create the first in the Hook on Fire compilation album.

Hook on Fire, Live @ The Hook Vol.1 will feature (12) tracks representing a wide variety of contemporary (and recently lost) Minnesotan artists live, in the act of creating their uniquely original music. 

This exciting compilation is in very limited supply and only being made available as a Thank You gift through the non-profit’s November MN Give To The Max fundraising campaign. The Hook is hosting a release party and celebration of the fundraiser’s conclusion at 7pm on Thursday, November 16th with a full-band performance by MAYDA
Track listing: 
1. The Bad Man, “Bonita”
2. Davina and the Vagabonds, “Devil Horns”
3. Big George Jackson, “Sho’ ‘Nuff Blues”
4. Flood Brothers featuring Kent Burnside, “Good Company”
5. The Belfast Cowboys, “Busted Up”
6. Charlie Parr, “Over the Red Cedar”
7. Taylor Ngiri-Seaberg, “Mint Chocolate”
8. Mayda, “MRDR PxP”
9. Mad Mojo Jett, “Rosegarden”
10. Black-Eyed Snakes, “Church Song”
11. All the Pretty Horses, “Lollipop”
12. Grant Hart, “She Floated Away”

Every tax-deductible donation of $25 or more to support Minnesota’s rich heritage of live performance arts through FPAC’s Hook & Ladder Theater will receive a copy of this compilation and complimentary admission to the Hook performance on November 16th! 

$25-$99 will get you a download card/code that can be used to conveniently access the music immediately. 
$100 or more will get you a limited edition physical copy of the record (CD format) along with the digital download card. 
Thank you to all the participating artists that made this project possible and thank YOU in advance for your thoughtful consideration and continued support of The Hook & Ladder and Minnesotan artists.


“Her R&B-infused pop is undeniably fresh, as she swings between pared-down acoustic struts, full-band funkadelic blasts, and electronic drumbeats and synth flourishes that would make the Purple One proud…. this prolific young soul singer is just beginning her journey, but it’s hard not to anticipate big things from the petite yet larger-than-life pop songstress.” -Andrea Swensson

Mayda’s music has been featured locally as well as internationally. Numerous of Mayda’s songs have been on Rachael Ray show, Good Morning America, KFC youtube, Reebok Seoul commercials, Jersey Shore, and cable networks such as Showtime and MTV.
