“Horn-Ucopia” Fall Funk Fest
7pm – Purple Funk Metropolis (Outside Canopy Stage)
8:30pm – McNasty Brass Band (Outside Canopy Stage)
10pm – Porky’s Groove Machine (Inside Theater Stage)
McNasty Brass Band is a collection of Minneapolis/Saint Paul based horn players and percussionists that fuse the Minneapolis sound with the spirit of New Orleans. The outcome of this fusion is hard-hitting dance music and high-energy live shows. Each player works tirelessly outside McNasty Brass Band as a side-man, some with national and international touring acts.
Porky’s Groove Machine has been getting both funky and silly since the fall of 2011. While their costumes and sense of humor show their willingness to not take themselves too seriously, their dedication to high-energy and high-entertainment performances is anything but laughable. With classic covers, quirky originals, and synchronized dance moves (for band and audience alike), their live shows are a delight for crowds of all ages.
The Award-Winning* Under the Canopy series at The Hook & Ladder Theater returns with its uniquely seasonal urban footprint to the Longfellow neighborhood of South Minneapolis in 2023. *Voted Best in MN 2021 by StarTribune readers.
The Hook has committed to having a food truck Under the Canopy throughout the 2023 season for our guests.
Come hungry and enjoy dinner with the show!
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
