I traveled to Minnesota this week for work and was looking tonight for a downtown dinner option. When the menu at the Irish bar looked "bleh", I walked across the street to the jazz club (the Dakota) to see what might be playing. Was delighted to see the listed band performing on a Monday evening was called the Red Hot Django Peppers. Food was yummy and the band was hot, even if the weather outside was not.
Nice 4-piece band that played a fun set. Not sure if there were other forum members there, but the crowd was appreciative. Check them out if you are in town and they are playing. Their rhythm guitarist, Ian, told me that both the Dakota and the Cedar Cultural Center are good places to find Django's music. Anyone else have any other good places in town, or other Hot Club bands, since I'll be here more frequently?
