For 25 years until his passing in March, 2004, our vocalist was Jim Mitchell. Mitch was also the featured vocalist at hundreds of University of Minnesota concerts, convocations and athletic events for 35 years. With his uncanny ability to communicate, Mitch could control an audience from the palm of his hand, whether in an intimate club of 25 listeners or a stadium filled with 65,000 fans. His unsurpassed emotional delivery ignited listeners. It’s our hope that you enjoy our album featuring Jim Mitchell as much as we’ve enjoyed performing some of the world’s greatest music.
