Bernie King & The Guilty Pleasures - Field of Dreams

Foxfire Festivals Presents a ShrinkRap Production. St. Mathias - Field of Dreams with Bernie King & The Guilty Pleasures berniekingandtheguiltypleasures.com Farm opens at 5pm Show at 7pm Farm Fresh Grub and Bar by Praire Bay $10 Suggested Cover for Adults Bernie King and the Guilty Pleasures came into being in early 2010 when they put together a group for a local jug band contest. The synergy between original members Bernie King, Julie King, Matt Smith, and John Kurtis Dehn was so natural and right that they decided to keep on making great music as a band. And that's exactly what they did as witnessed by the release of two great albums, 2012’s Bernie King and the Guilty Pleasures and 2014’s Pretty Little Gal. 2014 saw a change as original bassist Matt Smith retired to focus on his photography and the band welcomed new bassist Bradley Smith. Bradley's up tempo style was an immediate perfect fit and kept the band right on track for bigger and better things. 2014 was also the first year for the band dominated Reverbnation’s bluegrass category sitting in the #1 spot for many, many months. A feat they then repeated in both 2015 and 2016! This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Five Wings Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
