“Well, everybody’s heard about the bird. Well, uh, bird, bird, bird, bird is the word.” Britt Aamodt traces the origins of the 1963 surf rock hit, “Surfin’ Bird”, to Minneapolis.
The Moonlight Serenaders. The group plays the big band music that is old to some and new to others. This Thursday evening, The Serenaders play the Wabasha Caves. The caves are just that, caves that are fixed up and turned into a club. There’s a stage and dancing, and that’s where the Moonlight Serenaders come in. The Caves have swing dancing every Thursday, and this Thursday and other first monthly Thursdays, the Moonlight Serenaders provide the music. The leader of the band is Linda Ness, and she told Phil Nusbaum about the group.
