Minnesota Beatle Project 3 / Various
Minnesota Beatle Project Vol. 3 is the new album in the critically acclaimed Minnesota Beatle Project series produced by Minnesota-based 501c3 charitable organization Vega Productions. The album features musicians born or based in Minnesota, including well known international touring bands: Tapes 'n Tapes, Cloud Cult, Charlie Parr, Motion City Soundtrack, Solid Gold and The Honeydogs, along with rising stars like the 4onthefloor, Dark Dark Dark and Red Pens. The album also features a performance by the Anoka Middle School for the Arts concert band, which received a music grant made possible from sales of Minnesota Beatle Project Vol. 1. The 115 student musicians recorded a version of "A Hard Day's Night" that includes low brass and string instrument equipment purchased with the grant, making them the first beneficiary from the Minnesota Beatle Project to appear on one of the albums.
