Northern Thunder Motorcycle Rally

Singer/harmonica player Kim Wilson cut his teeth in the Twin Cities in the 1970s playing in a band called Aces Straights and Shuffles. He made his name in the Fabulous Thunderbirds, the band he still fronts. The group started out as a straight-ahead blues group but has evolved to embrace rock, soul and even Cajun. The Fab T-birds hit a commercial peak with “Tuff Enuff” in 1986 when Jimmie Vaughan was still on guitar, but he left three years later. Johnny Moeller and Mike Keller are now on guitar. The T-Birds are part of Mystic Lake’s Northern Thunder motorcycle and hot rod rally in the parking lot this weekend. Headlining Saturday at 8 p.m. are those artfully grim rockers Blue Oyster Cult of “Don’t Fear the Reaper” fame, featuring original members Buck Dharma and Eric Bloom. Jon Bream
