About this Event

Remember the pivotal year 1966 in this rocking throwback concert of music, pop culture and history. Chronofon reflects on this turbulent time and the impact it has had on our culture, then and now. Brought to you from “the studios of radio station WCRN,” our four “radio personalities” deliver news, commentary, advice for modern living, a call-in trivia show, and of course lots of music including “Summer in the City,” “Ain’t That Peculiar,” “Monday, Monday,” “Sounds of Silence,” “Draft Dodger Rag” and many more.

Pianist Dan Chouinard and singers Bradley Greenwald, Diana Grasselli, and Prudence Johnson (together known as Chronofon) with Dean Magraw (guitar) and Gary Raynor (bass), bring to Crooners MainStage something more than a concert, a performance at home in the theater as well as the nightclub, weaving together stories and songs with their trademark virtuosity.

Previous popular Chronofon performances at Crooners Supper Club include: An Evening in Paris and La Bella Italia.

Chronofon is a confluence of four principle Minnesota performing artists - Dan Chouinard, Diana Grasselli, Bradley Greenwald, and Prudence Johnson - who together, conceive, research, write, design, direct, and perform musical chronicles of past and present

artists, events, time periods and places. Their diverse voices and writing and directorial styles complement and challenge one another to develop dynamic, theatrical concerts for audiences of all ages and backgrounds.

The artistic goals set forth by this group of experienced collaborators include successfully representing the artistic merit and significance of their subjects through the exploration and exposition of their music, commentary, culture and social mirrors while executing the material with depth, style, precision, innovation and humor.

In collaboration with the Friends of the St. Paul Public Library and Open Eye Theatre, and with support from The Minnesota Regional Arts Council, Chronofon has created sold-out productions including Weill & Brecht - The Berlin Years; Jacques Brel - When We Have Only Love, '66 - Talkin' Bout My Generation Dear Lenny: Bernstein's Life in Songs & Letters; and When the Shark Bites: Hauptmann & Brecht, Lenya & Weill.
