For a while now, people have been asking what Bigfoot Music Productions actually is. So, we thought we would take a minute to provide a little clarification so everyone can fully understand what we are doing.
The basic premise is simple: Bigfoot Music Productions is an advocate for the “little guy” in the music world. Virtually all music and festivals operate on the same business model they have for decades, and frankly, we are tired of it. It is very sad when many of these people who are here to “help” musicians, in reality, are only there to make their pocketbooks a little bigger. We have been to far too many festivals where great bands have been offered bad time slots, usually when a big name headliner is playing. This gives fans virtually no opportunity to hear this great music. Of course, we also understand that many people like this kind of set-up, but we want to go down a different avenue and it extends far beyond just music. Continue Reading

This tiny old cemetery is about three miles off of Tower Avenue in Parkland, a town south of the city of Superior and east of the town and village of Superior, near the Nemadji Golf Club, at the end of Cemetery Road.
Apparently it’s called “Solitude Hill,” despite the fact that a short distance away is the shot-up orange sign that reads: “No hunting or trespassing without permission. Only NRA members need apply.”
Is it haunted? Go there at night and then let us know.
“The setting, as I noted previously, was spectacular, the weather cooperating with enthusiasm. And the performers, as anticipated, were not only determined to make Sol Fest a spectacle, they were accompanied by some wonderful embellishments. I refer here to the plein air painters and Ayla the Mermaid… Continue Reading

I don’t know if I was being cheap or just avoiding my hoarding instincts, but I regret not coughing up $8 for this Guy Lombardo record at the Wallace Henkins Estate Sale in May. It appears to be a live recording on Duluth station WEBC from Oct. 14, 1948 — I’m not sure. It was an over-sized record, and I wasn’t sure if it would fit on my turntable. So, who picked it up and how long until it’s shared on the Internet?
