Live Music Venues in Minneapolis

Minneapolis Live Music Venues

Everyone knows that Prince came from Minneapolis, nurtured by the local music community and who rose to fame as a singer and songwriter and creator of the "Minnesota Sound". But Minnesota has a long history as the home of famous music makers, from Judy Garland and The Andrews Sisters in the 1930's and 40's, to the early rock and roll bands of the 1960's like The Castaways, The Trashmen, Gary Puckett and the Union Gap, music legends Bob Dylan and folk/country singer John Devver.

Still today, the Twin Cities is home to many groundbreaking musicians whose styles range from classical to country, and from rock to jazz and hip-hop. The Minneapolis area is proudly home to the many live music venues that feature some of the most talented artists, bands and orchestras in the country.
