Trent Romens & Calico Tango (live performance)
August 16 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pmFREE
Join us on August 16th to see Calico Tango, a Twin Cities-based Blues-Rock & Soul band fronted by Singer/Guitarist, Trent Romens, perform live at Umbra. This is a complimentary concert that is open to the public. Craft cocktails, beer, wine, and food will be available for purchase.
Following in the footsteps of some great blues pioneers before him, young guitar‐slinger Trent Romens is also stepping off their beaten path to blaze his own trail. With an electrifying stage presence and a deeply personal guitar‐playing style, he is winning over an impressive string of audiences. Starting out in the local scene when he was only 15, Trent has injected himself in to the community for the last 10 years performing with some of the Twin Cities’ most respected musicians including Wain McFarlane, Barbara LeShoure and Willie Murphy. Warming up for national touring acts such as Tedeschi Trucks Band, Jimmie Vaughan, Hippo Campus and Soul Asylum, Trent is gaining notoriety.
Trent’s new band, Calico Tango, is an effort to showcase his songwriting and ability to create an amazing live performance. Backed by a group of all-star Minneapolis musicians including John Wright on Bass (Galactic Cowboy Orchestra), Toby Lee Marshall on Hammond (Koch Marshall Trio), Alec Tackmann on Drums (Galactic Cowboy Orchestra), Brian Highhill on Trumpet (Pavielle, Sonny Knight) & Matty Harris on Saxophone (Baker London), this group is destined to move the crowd. Calico Tango’s will be performing songs from their new album, Good to Be Back, which was released on August 10th.
