From media:

  • “There are few spots in the Twin Cities like the Grand Oak Opry. It’s an outdoor, intimate affair, family friendly and an opportunity to really get up-close and personal with some of the most talented musical acts our great cities have to offer.  Perfect for a spontaneous date night, or a chance to expose the youngsters to professional musicians in a non-intimidating, non-club environment…Get in early with a blanket or a chair to scout out the best spot…” – l’etoile Magazine, 9/12/15
  • “The wide canopy of the oak tree and the historic feel of their pre-Civil-War house give the concerts an intimate atmosphere that traditional venues can’t replicate.”  Local Current Blog 5/11/2015

From guests:

  • “Attended The Grand Oak Opry this past Saturday to see the Roe Family Singers. I had only heard about it by reading the Current’s webpage/ news story. I didn’t know anyone else going and was a bit intimidated that it was at someone’s house. My husband and I were welcomed with smiles and warm greetings. The setting was peaceful and the music was fantastic. One of the best nights of my summer so far. I can’t wait for the next show.”
  • “Welcome to West 7th, where neighbors invite anyone who wants to come to hang out and listen to music in their backyard. Just another reason to love West Seventh and St. Paul.”

From musicians:

  • “We had a truly wonderful time performing at the Grand Oak Opry! Sean and Tim made us feel so welcome, and the audience was excellent. I hope that we can play here again and again, because places like this are magical for performers! Thanks for having us!” – Quillan Roe, Roe Family Singers
  • “By far one the most genuine, unique and sincere shows I have ever played. Tim and Sean are the most gracious hosts you will ever meet and the community they are creating is endearing and inspirational. Hats off to the people that put the time and energy into making something special happen, not only in the world but right in their backyard.” – Brad Senne
