Milwaukee WI: Charles P. Ries & The MinkTronics headline Polish Falcon Hall 801 E. Clarke St. Milwaukee on November 18, 2017 with Guests Anthony Deutsch performing his new album “Father Sky”, Poet Timothy Kloss, and DJ Q.

The MinkTronics band accompanies the narrative prose poetry reading of author
Charles P. Ries and consists of Ron Baake (drums/vocals), Kevin Rautmann (bass/vocals) and Mark Truesdell (guitar, keyboards, harmonica and vocals).

“Charles and the band create an environment that encourages authenticity — the chance to dig deep, to find your vulnerable self, to connect with the words and sounds they provide. It’s well-written, great storytelling with the interesting additional layer of music. You leave assured that we all share so much of the human experience.”

Glenn Kleinman, Executive Director of 88.9 Radio

“Charles P. Ries is a master of spoken word. Along with his MinkTronics, he shares stories of humble beginnings, heartbreak, the human experience — and most of all, love. Stepping into one of his shows means stepping into an outer body experience. You will leave better than you came in.”

Matt Cordio, Start Up Milwaukee

Doors open at 7:00 p.m. This performance is open to the public with no cover charge. You must be 21 to enter.  Sponsored by Ansay International
