The Self-made MusicMan: Owl City
From: Owatonna, MN

If you listened to the radio in 2009, you heard this song, a LOT. This guy is apparently the type who was afraid to go outside so he just created his own label and self published his music using the new social media platform, MySpace. Yes, I said MySpace. If he can create that kind of success on his own, you’ll draw fans with him as a performer. Best of all, he won’t offend anyone with his wholesome mid-west sounds.

Grammy Winners: Semisonic
From: Minneapolis, MN

They won a Grammy. They are non offensive. There’s no way this band was booked for the weekend. Sing the fans out of the arena guys. It’s a swell send off after a great game.

The Activists: Soul Assylum
From: Minneapolis, MN

This Grammy winning band used their position in the limelight to help find missing/exploited children. Perhaps a slide show of hockey players gone MIA would give fans the giggles? I think the NHL needs to put a little more effort into their performers. I mean, Google is a tool; USE IT! If nothing else I hope y’all enjoyed this walk down musical memory lane.
