The Sena Ehrhardt Band Performs Saturday, February 8
MANKATO, Minn. – Blues singer Sena Ehrhardt and her band will perform on Saturday, Feb. 8 at Hooligans Neighborhood Pub, 1400 East Madison Ave., Mankato. Lisa Wenger and Her Mean Men take the stage at 8:00 p.m. followed by Sena Ehrhardt at 9:30 p.m.
The concert event is co-sponsored by KMSU -The Maverick and the Minnesota State Mankato Performance Series with assistance from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
Rochester blues vocalist Ehrhardt has returned to action with "All In," her second release on the acclaimed Blind Pig Records label. She made her Blind Pig debut last year and won a Blues Blast Rising Star award in the process. She worked with Grammy-winning producer Jim Gaines (Santana, Stevie Ray Vaughan) on the new album.
Singer Sena Ehrhardt is one of the freshest and most dynamic young voices on the blues scene today. The buzz about the Minneapolis-area vocalist is poised to go nationwide as word is getting out about her incendiary performances on concert stages and festivals across the upper Midwest.
Ehrhardt was born and raised in a house of blues. Through years of playing music in clubs and juke joints, her guitarist father, Ed Ehrhardt, laid the groundwork for a love of blues that eventually lead to the formation of the Sena Ehrhardt Band. Sena has taken those influences and several years of experience to forge her own personal and intelligent take on the blues.
Support act Lisa Wenger and Her Mean Men has performed to audiences across the nation.
Her appeal is broad enough to entertain a variety of crowds on the blues circuit, be it at the
Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, the Famous Surf Ballroom, the Le Poisson in NYC, The Hard Rock in Vegas, or at BB Kings in Orlando.
Concert admission is $10 in advance; $12 the day of the show. Advance purchase is strongly encouraged. Those who wish to purchase tickets online should go to www.mnsu.edu/music. For more information, call the Performance Series office, (507) 389-5549.
