I remember first hearing about Jonny Lang when I was in college here at SCSU and he was "Kid Jonny Lang".  Played at the Red Carpet quite often.

Now, he's 37 and playing much bigger venues than the Red Carpet and probably making a lot more money too.  Not that it isn't cool to see anyone at the Carpet, but it's a stepping stone to the "bigs".  Jonny comes from a musical family, and his sister is also in a band that is probably familiar to most in the area- "Brat Pack Radio".

The weekend after Labor Day Jonny Lang will be playing the Wayzata Beach Bash.  To be honest with you, I had no idea there was a beach any where near Wayzata, but there's a beach bash there.  Lasts for a couple of days and looks to be pretty entertaining.

Jonny Lang has come a long way from "Kid Jonny Lang" and this show should be worth the short trip to Wayzata September 7th.
