The Nickel Revolution as they look TODAY

Posted: August 11, 2012 in Reunion 2012

If you’ve been following the Nickel Revolution blog and looking at the pictures, this post is a reality check. Especially if you are going to the Nickel Revolution Reunion on September 1, 2012. You will need a photo guide to recognize the boys today.

Nickel Revolution 2012 Reunion

Saturday, September 1, 2012

7pm to 1am (Doors open at 6pm see more details below)

Broadway Bar & Pizza

8298 University Ave. NE

Fridley, MN 55432

FREE ADMISSION (donations accepted at the door to cover expenses).

To be included on the guest list email us here: Nickel Revolution Reunion

Attention Musicians! We invite you to jam with us.

Bring your guitar, drum sticks, horn or hot vocals and we are providing a full backline of amps, etc. LET US KNOW so we can give you a songlist: Nickel Revolution Reunion

Please let us know which member of the band you are friends with or related to so we can note that on the guest list. If this is all new to you and you do not know someone in the band. Louie Lenz is selling VIP tickets at $5.

Email Louie for details: Louiejr@comcast.net

FOOD (Pizza) at the Reunion must be pre-ordered (otherwise it would be a staffing problem for Broadway). They are requesting a 2-week reservation for pre-ordering your pizza. So, by August 18, 2012, send an email to Louie and he will turn it in to Broadway. Email Louie for details: Louiejr@comcast.net

Very fitting to hold this event at Broadway Bar and Pizza in that Broadway Pizza was a Robbinsdale High School hangout back in the day, and unlike this band, they didn’t go out of business.  The Fridley location is perfect in that they have a large dance hall with a separate entrance. Our event will not be advertised as we already have a large guest list and we want everyone attending to have a great time on the dance floor instead of standing in line and waiting for a turn on the toilet. Full bar available (not that anyone drinks in Minnesota, but if you feel like an adult beverage, you can purchase them YouBetcha!)

Special Guests

Joining The Nickel Revolution onstage will include some of our children and that will certainly be a special treat. Jordan Lenz (bass and guitar) is Jerry Lenz’s youngest son and he plays with Jerry in The Nickel Blues Band in Orlando,Florida.

Benjamin Jeffy (guitar) and Christopher Jeffy (bass) will be joining the band on stage and it promises to be a great time. We suggest you have an extra set of batteries for your camera, video, or a least charge your cell phone up before you arrive at the reunion.

 

Dinner before or during the reunion? You can pre-order pizza if you are arriving early. However, you MUST pre-order. Contact Louie Lenz: Louiejr@comcast.net
