Headliner AJ Finney
Stylistically manic, artistically brilliant, AJ Finney is an eclectic Mid-Westerner with a passion for the 60’s psychedelic scene. Comedy, Jam Bands, and Volkswagens that’s him, he’s like an Eco-Friendly, improvisational, sometimes philosophical, patchouli soaked quipster. AJ’s organic approach is refreshing, and his poetic stream of consciousness makes for a colorful and unforgettable comedic experience. His audience much like the deadheads are finding him through new and creative venues such as music festivals, Head shops, and Record stores. AJ’s an effective and engaging story teller. He’s got rhythm that pulls you quickly into his world, and you’ll laugh until you leave. Then later you’ll laugh again. With a childlike curiosity about the world around him, and a writing style that ranges from T.V. ready to wildly inappropriate, you can be sure that an evening with AJ Finney is an evening not to be missed!

Featured Act Dave Johnson
Dave Johnson can’t pretend that growing older never hurts. At an age at when many men get that motorcycle, sports car, or toupee they’ve always wanted, Dave decided to try his hand at stand-up comedy. And now his hip hurts. A lifelong resident of Minneapolis, his is a cautionary tale of marriage, parenting, aging, and the pit falls of suburban living that will have you laughing in empathy. Or maybe it’s sympathy. Either way, audiences enjoy his honest but twisted take on everything life has thrown his way. But that motorcycle sure would have been nice.
