Centerstage Minnesota features Minnesota artists in an eclectic mix of folk, rock, blues, jazz, and world music. One of the bands played this week is Tapes 'n Tapes, a Minneapolis based band. In early 2017, Tapes 'n Tapes re-released their first, self-titled EP. in a digital format. Inactive since 2011, this might mark the resurgance of this popular Minnesota band.
