HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS: A Kat Perkins Christmas
Tuesday, December 20 – 7:30pm
Tickets: $29 advance, $32 door
The incredible rocker, Kat Perkins, is coming to Pioneer Place for a very special holiday music extravagnza on December 20 titled A Kat Perkins Christmas.
Growing up the daughter of a music teacher, Kat has been singing, dancing, and performing for just about as long as she can remember. At just 15 years old, Perkins made the move to the Twin Cities from rural North Dakota and her professional career began as she became a success in the Minneapolis-St. Paul theatre scene. Over the years, Perkins has performed and recorded music as a solo artist and with numerous bands.
In 2012, she had success with a single written by Chad Kroeger (Nickelback) that featured Guns N’ Roses guitarist Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal, Nine Inch Nails drummer Ilan Rubin, Grammy-nominated producer Joe Marlett (Foo Fighters, Korn) and her current musical director Eric Warner.
In 2013, she received an opportunity to go to the Middle East to perform for the military. While on the trip, a video of her singing randomly at the Amsterdam airport ended up on Youtube and prompted a call from NBC’s The Voice. She quickly found herself in the national spotlight as a Top 5 contestant coached by Adam Levine (of Maroon 5). “Fearless” marks her debut solo release. The song was produced by John Fields (Pink, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez) and independently hit #5 upon release on the iTunes charts.
When not on stage, Kat also has a school initiative program where she talks to elementary to high school students about an array of subjects including “Going After Your Dreams”, “Bullying and Manners”, “Positive Impact On The World” and “Use of Social Media”.
