Shannon Blowtorch: 2:30-4:15pm
Recognized by publications such as City Pages and Star Tribune as the best club DJ in the Twin Cities, Shannon Blowtorch might be best known for her role in local events such as Soul Friday, Berlin, and Bomp. Dabblers will enjoy the party vibe offered up by Shannon Blowtorch to kick off the event.
The 4onthefloor: 4:15-5:15pm
With roots in blues, and influenced by rock-and-roll of the past, The 4onthefloor's high octane, furious delivery will keep Dabblers warm with a modern variation of foot stomping rock'n'roll in 4/4 time. Having nailed down a strong local following, and being named winner of Vita.mn’s best new band of 2011, The 4onthefloor has pounded their drum on a national scene, performing at Austin's South by Southwest, and with artists such as Willie Nelson, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Sugarland, Trampled by Turtles, Drive-by Truckers, Citizen Cope and Steve Martin.
Landing on First Avenue's Best new bands list in 2014, the year they were founded, ZULUZULUU, joins the music lineup for the Beer Dabbler Winter Carnival for an afternoon of synth driven R&B with soulful vocals. Armed with a wide range of electronic instrumentation, ZULUZULUU sets out to bring a new, exploratory modern sound influenced by the greats of funk, soul, and jazz with electronic excursions, hard grooves, Afro-futurism and soulful melodies.
