Unfortunately, the days of rock bands being the focal point of modern entertainment are pretty much over. Back in the day, rock bands were everywhere. The driving forces of the time were Zeppelin, Van Halen, Aerosmith, Pink Floyd, Skynyrd, Deep Purple, Sabbath, and The Who.

Another name that comes to mind that isn't quite as well known is The Stray Cats. Brian Setzer’s jazz like vocals and Lee Rocker's heavy bass lines made for a one of a kind combination. The band has had it’s fair share of breakups, line-up changes, and re-unions over the years, but they’re finally back on the road again.


Although it's been quite a while since the band has released any new music, I'm thankful that they're at least still touring. The Stray Cats will be coming to Minnesota – playing Treasure Island Casino in Welch. The show will take place on Sunday, August 18th at 7:30 pm. You can get a ticket online now for as cheap as $69.
