The CenterStage Concert Series is back! This collaboration between Northern Community Radio and The Reif Center is going strong into its third season. The third Thursday of every month, this series takes place in the Mary Ives Studio Theater at The Reif Center; a 200-seat intimate venue with a listening-room vibe where the audience is tuned IN to the musicianship on stage.

Cameron Kinghorn and Kevin Gastonguay of Nooky Jones stopped by the KBXE studios to talk about performing in Bemidji and their upcoming album which will feature a more funked up sound to get people up and dancing. Hear the whole conversation by clicking below.

Nooky Jones brought some soul to Bemidji along with Fargo hip hop band, D Mills and the Thrills. KAXE/KBXE on-air volunteer, Shane Kingsland went to the show at Rail River Folk School, and had this review for us (DISCLAIMER: this may make you really upset that you missed the show.
