The Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank
The Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank
Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank's new album Number One Contender was recorded live to tape over four wintry days and nights in the north woods of Minnesota. Named one of the best Minnesota-made albums of 2013 by Star Tribune, Number One Contender captures the energy and emotion of the Hobo Nephews' sound more than ever before. Teague and Ian's New Jersey roots squarely align them with the spirit of the big-hearted underdog. This, combined with the whisper of the wind through the pines, and the cadence of the open road, has lent Number One Contender a unique sound.

The Hobo Nephews' emerging strength, however, is the knowledge and perseverance to develop an original American sound as platform for two distinct American voices.

"timeless songwriting chops....loose, lively song rave-ups and masterful guitar work. Easily one of the best Minnesota-made albums of the year."
- Star Tribune review of Number One Contender

"a laid-back album, but not without grit and grime, and the songs are strong and memorable."
- Duluth News Tribune review of Number One Contender

"inimitable grooves and fabulous harmonies. They're both great guitarists, too."
- Erik Berry of Trampled By Turtles (Star Tribune)

"with heavy folk and Bob Dylan influences in the bands work, fans of tremendously played roots music are in for quite a treat."
- Atlantic City Weekly

"all manner of backwoods melody driven by chain-gang-workin'-on-the-railroad rhythms…the brothers Alexy excel at channeling that old-timey mono-radio sensation into their modern music."
- Minneapolis City Pages

"bounces around in rootsy folk and blues territory, with a heavy dose of Dylan and 'American Beauty'-fied Dead. Teague is more the bluesman of the group while Ian delivers most of the folkier, twangier stuff. Somehow, they strike a perfect balance."
- Star Tribune review of Sing!

"Four Stars…of the same breed of songwriters that put folk on the map and I'll be damned if they haven't written some of the most beautiful and captivating songs I've heard in a long time."
- Vail Daily review of Sing!

"the results are pure gold…a genre buster of epic proportions...an undeniable fact emerges: The Hobo Nephews are the new kings of Highway 61."
- Duluth Budgeteer News review of Sing!
Dead Pigeons
Dead Pigeons
The Dead Pigeons formed on Tuesdays at Palmer's Bar, on the West Bank in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
The Last Revel
The Last Revel
Consisting of three members, The Last Revel uses traditional folk-minded three part harmonies with honest and meaningful lyrics to deliver a passionate and soul stirring performance. On a backbone of rebellious rock attitude and raw traditional instrumentation, band members pride themselves on an unrelenting work ethic and a deep hunger to write, perform, and entertain.

The Last Revel is known for crafting a rowdy live performance that inspires crowds to move to every tune. The Last Revel honed their style at a weekly open mic night at a dive bar in Southern Minnesota. Their performance spread by word of mouth until the bar was at maximum capacity every Thursday. When the dance floor was full, folks danced on tables. The Last Revel strives for such wild performances at every show.

The Last Revel received great response from press and fans alike from their first official recording entitled, “The Mason Jar EP” in February of 2013.

With their debut full-length release entitled “UPROOTED” in February of 2014, The Last Revel's momentum continues to grow and The Band is poised to take their sound to anywhere that welcomes their own brand of lyric driven, foot moving, folk music.
