Don’t miss the big finish to the wonderful “Meet me at the Beehive” series in Graeser Park! Hear Minnesota-born Rick Shefchik discuss his book ‘Everybody’s Heard About the Bird: The True Story of 1960s Rock ‘n’ Roll in Minnesota’ .
Considered the first comprehensive history to trace the evolution of Minnesota 1960s rock and roll, this behind-the-scenes account relates how a handful of Minnesota rock bands made it big.
From Augie Garcia and Bobby Vee to The Trashmen and the Castaways, Everybody’s Heard about the Bird reveals how this monumental era of Minnesota rock music in the 1960s evolved.
Rick spent 26 years at the St. Paul Pioneer Press as a media critic, features writer, columnist and sportswriter.
Stay tuned for “Meet me at the Beehive” in 2019!
Super-Uber-Organizer Kristi Gibson, Robbinsdale Historical Society Board Member, is hoping to continue the series next year. She’s done an amazing job of raising community awareness for the 1939 Graeser Park, featuring one of only two beehive fireplaces left in the U.S.
