A Valentine's Evening with Chris Koza and Lucy Michelle
Over the past decade, Lucy Michelle and Chris Koza have been among the most consistent and prolific artists in Minneapolis/St. Paul. During that timespan, Chris has released 10 albums - most recently 2014’s In Real Time while also fronting the band Rogue Valley. Lucy Michelle has recently followed up 2013’s Chan Poling/John Munson-co-produced solo album Attack of the Heart by rekindling with former Velvet Lapels collaborators under the moniker "Little Fevers” for their delightful and energetic debut album Field Trip.
This Valentine’s Day the duo - along with several other melodic friends - will be filling the Cedar Cultural Center with originals and covers inspired by the pearls - and perils of romance. Chris and Lucy will perform solo, as a duo, and as a quartet with the musical guidance of Richard Medek (drum) and John Munson (bass). Special guests for the evening include Adam Levy (The Honeydogs, And The Professors), Alexei Moon Casselle (Mixed Blood Majority, Kill the Vultures), Leah Ottman (LOTT, We are the Willows), singer-songwriter Brian Just, and special secret guests with John Munson on bass and Richard Medek on drums.
In advance of Valentine’s Day, Chris and Lucy are forging ahead through the depths of the Minnesota Winter by recording a special covers EP. This sure-to-be-rare, sure-to-be-rad collection of songs is an exclusive release - and a sincere Thank You - for ticket-holders to the show. The album will be distributed as a download in early February, prior the show.
Will there be cakes? Sing-alongs? Fancy Gowns? Surprises? Will you find your one True Love in the audience? The possibilities are many, but the time and place are one: Sunday, February 14th the Cedar Cultural Center present: A Valentine’s Evening w/ Chris Koza and Lucy Michelle.
