Mankato Eventsmankato events Kato Ballroom Pops At The Kato
When: Sat Mar 7, 2015 7pm to 9pm

Where: Kato Ballroom 200 Chestnut St, Mankato, Minnesota 56001

Announcing the second show in the Mankato Symphony Orchestra's brand new jazz and pops series. We are proud to present the one and only Hornheads!

About the performers:

The Hornheads, an extraordinarily talented group of horn players, has been gathering international acclaim from artists and critics alike, since 1991.

On tour with Prince and the New Power Generation from 1991-1994, the Hornheads performed for over 2 million concert goers in twenty countries. Q Magazine, London, described them as a peerless horn section...playing in bare brilliant syncopation, punching with a staccato precision beyond the grasp of science or Synclavier. Prince splashes their insouciant versatility all over the set list.

Performing on over sixty CD projects, the Hornheads have recorded with national and international artists such as Prince, Chaka Kahn, The Jonas Brothers, Mavis Staples, Phil Upchurch, Ricky Peterson, Jimmy Jam, Mandy Moore, Pedro Abrunhosa, Yumi Matsutoya, Babyface, Illya Kuryaki and the Valderramas, France Gal, Tevin Campbell, Rosie Gaines, Larry Graham, Stimo Cu, Carmen Electra, Geg Telesforo, and Ben Jor.

Individually, as top call session and show players, the Hornheads have performed and/or recorded with artists such as Janet Jackson, Rod Stewart, James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Louie Bellson, Ray Charles, Clark Terry, Sammy Davis Jr., Dizzy Gillespie, Tony Bennett, Doc Severinsen, Burt Bacharach, Natalie Cole, Donny Osmond, Johnny Mathis, Michael Bolton, Trisha Yearwood, Lenny Kravitz, The Time, and many others.

As a solo ensemble performing at jazz festivals, arts series, universities, and high schools, this a cappella group brings their distinctive flair to jazz and funk music, combining virtuosic improvisation with sizzling ensemble work to create a truly unique music experience. They delight audiences with their artistry, versatility, musicality, and precision, covering American masters from Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, and Thelonious Monk, to Leonard Bernstein, Rodgers and Hammerstein, and Stevie Wonder, while completing their repertoire with dynamic Hornheads originals.
