February 10 @ 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm
Chad Johnson & The Minnesota Transplants (MN-T’s) are one of the most entertaining and talented bands in the Midwest, infusing their signature blend of Americana and country-rock crossroads into their original music and crowd favorite covers. With their onstage chemistry, and ability to entertain audiences, it’s no wonder they’ve built a dedicated following in the Midwest and beyond.
A longtime singer, songwriter, musician and recording artist, Chad is a seasoned professional, and is the native Minnesotan in the group. The Minnesota Transplants (MN-T’s) include international touring musician, studio engineer, and lead guitarist, Jeenti Dutta, who hails from India. Drummer Andy Jaynes, formerly of the 8th Street Band, comes from Colorado. Bassist Makai (Kai) Catudio, formerly of The Jason Paulson Band, is from the island of Hawaii. In the spirit of this, The Minnesota Transplants came to be. For short, they are the MN-T’s.
The band has shared the stage with Clint Black, Collin Raye, Craig Morgan, Jon Langston, Joe Nichols, The Gear Daddies, Mark Joseph (of Big Wu), The Jason Paulson Band, and White Iron Band, Tyler Braden, and Lonestar, and many others.
