We're getting ready to do it again! Saturday January 23, 2016. It's MBOTMA's 2016 Fundraiser 12to12 Party! Twelve bands over twelve hours, from 12 Noon to 12 Midnight, with Ivory Bridge, The Nobodys, Middle Spunk Creek Boys, Jumpin' Jo & The Cate Cats, The Platte Valley Boys, Mark Kreitzer Band, JedFest, Seldom Herd, Alternate Route, Pushing Chain, Switched At Birth, and Cousin Dad.

But wait, there's more! This will be an important fundraing event for MBOTMA, and we're planning lots of other fund stuff like raffles, silent auction, and of course plenty of space for jam sessions. There will be a $10 suggested admission donation, but we'll be glad to just have you come. All proceeds will benefit MBOTMA as the bands are all donating their performances (thank you music community) and the VFW is donating the space as well (thank you Kraus Hartig). We'll be celebrating Jed Malischke's 29 years of service to MBOTMA with this mini-festival to raise money to support the next 29 years. Come join us!

It's all at the Kraus Hartig VFW Post in Spring Lake Park MN (8100 Pleasant View Dr), in the north metro area of Minneapolis. There's lots of easy parking right by the door, and food & beverage will be available so you can plan to stay all day (and night!).

How Do We Get There?

Spring Lake Park is on the north side of the Minneapolis metro area. The VFW post is just off of County Road 10 (don’t confuse this with the nearby State Hwy 10). County Road 10 can be reached from both I-35W or Hwy 65 (Central Ave NE).





From County 10 turn south on Pleasant View Dr (by the Spring Lake Fire Dept) and go a couple blocks to the VFW Post on your right. To download a PDF with these maps and directions click here. To go to an online Google Map click here.
