White Iron Band
White Iron Band
The White Iron Band is a high-energy rock band specializing in foot-stompin-esque;, forget-what-troubles-ya music. With energy to blow your face off and enough soul to well your eyes, the band is best taken live with friends and strangers. Inspired by the everyday, their songs are about love, pain, jail, work and whiskey (not necessarily in that order ).

A rotating line up of guitars, fiddle, keyboards, bass and drums power a train engineered by lead-guy Matt Pudas who blasts harmonica, and hurls lyrics to produce a swelling, visceral wave of sound. In short, White Iron shows combine lyrical accessibility and explosive musicianship to produce a rich experience for the head, heart, and legs.

Born in the throes of Ely, Minnesota, the band developed their identity in cold desolation. After repeatedly rocking all two of Ely’s live music venues the band decided to transplant to Minneapolis where they have been welcomed with open arms.

Cutting their teeth on the historic West Bank, they garnered a reputation playing twelve-hour rock marathon Sundays at the bar formerly known as Five Corners Saloon. Gaining respect, they were soon allotted the highly coveted Thursday night weekly slot and thereafter established themselves as a fixture on Minneapolis’ music scene.
A favorite at summer festivals, the White Iron Band consistently brings their best, playing every show as if it were their last and bringing a refreshing air of levity to an often convoluted and monotone music scene.
Sherwin Linton
Sherwin Linton
South Dakota native Sherwin Linton launched his career in the music business in 1956 as a 16 year-old disc jockey and live performer of country and rockabilly music on radio station KWAT in Watertown. Moving to Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1957, this talented singer, guitarist and songwriter began performing throughout the country. Sherwin journeyed to Nashville in 1966 and recorded “Cotton King,” a song that catapulted him to the top of the Country charts. Roy Acuff was so impressed with Sherwin that he signed Sherwin to his legendary Acuff-Rose Publishing Company and Hickory Records, resulting in numerous TV appearances and nationwide tours. Following the 1971 release of a live tribute album, “Hello, I’m Not Johnny Cash,” Sherwin received multiple national nominations from the CMA and ACM (and praise from Cash himself). Subsequent hits included the 1986 novelty song “Santa Got A DWI,” an anti-drunk driving song that hit the charts and became a Christmas favorite (and has sold over 1 million copies). Sherwin has been a true ambassador, romanticizing his home state with memories of railroad life and growing up in small South Dakota towns – themes that are woven into the fabric of more than 25 albums and over 54 years of live performances across the U.S. and Canada.
