Robert Randolph and the Family Band

Regulars at the Minnesota Zoo, these sanctified steel guitar specialists are moving indoors to Jam Band Central, i.e. the Cabooze. The spirited, high-energy Randolph will likely take listeners on a trip through Jimi Hendrix, Slim Harpo, Sly Stone, spirituals and the blues. Opening is Frogleg, Minnesota’s versatile jam-band.

After playing more of a backup role in the pioneering bands Throwing Muses and the Breeders, Tanya Donelly enjoyed a strong creative burst and fair amount of commercial success fronting her own ethereal, melodic, Boston-based group in the early-’90s alterna-rock golden era. But it would be way too short-lived, just five years with a pair of cherished albums and the minor hits “Feed the Tree,” “Super-Connected” and “Gepetto.” Finally, after a 20-year lull, Donnelly has put the quartet back together and it’s earning a rave reception on tour, with two sets each night pulled from those two albums plus two new songs.
