    Founded in 1992 in a coffee shop in Anoka, the Lake Wobegon Brass Band has entertained tens of thousands of patrons over the last 23 year. When asked if the band could make use of Prairie Home Companion’s famous Central Minnesota city, Garrison Keillor replied “I’m happy to give my permission. The only condition is that you will play at a picnic for me”. Over the past 25 years the band has toured in Western Europe on two different occasions, in addition to their national appearances here in the US.

    On July 4, 2009, the band was also honored to participate by invitation in the 35th anniversary show for “A Prairie Home Companion®” with Garrison Keillor. In addition to rehearsing pieces on stage with Mr. Keillor throughout the day, the band played three selections in the production before a live audience of an estimated 8,000 people in Avon, Minnesota. Millions more tuned in to Minnesota Public Radio nationally and internationally.
