Legendary '70s Rockers CAIN To Reunite This Friday In Minneapolis

September 15, 2010

According to Twin Cities Metal, legendary Minneapolis '70s band CAIN will reunite for a performance this Friday, November 17 at the Mid-America Music Hall Of Fame induction show. Cindy from the Mid-America Music Hall Of Fame has confirmed that the lineup for this special performance will include vocalist Jiggs Lee, bassist Dave Elmeer, keyboardist Chaz Carlson, Brad Schultz, and Marc Partridge. CAIN is scheduled to go on at 10:40 p.m., and they will play five to seven songs. According to Cindy, the band is "very excited about playing again" and "they are having some fun with it."

This one-time CAIN reunion is in honor of their induction into the Mid-America Music Hall Of Fame. CAIN vocalist Jiggs Lee commented on the induction, "Now that you look at what you've done, you've managed to incentivize some really good musicians to come together to play some really good stuff." The Mid-America Hall Of Fame induction show takes place this Thursday–Saturday, September 16-18 at the Sheraton Bloomington hotel in Bloomington, Minnesota, and will feature an impressive lineup of 24 performing inductees.

CAIN was one of the heaviest bands out of the Midwest in the mid-'70s, and they created quite a stir nationally with their two albums, "A Pound Of Flesh" and "Stinger". Out of print until reissued by Monster Records (now Rockadrome) in 2003, "A Pound Of Flesh" is one of the most beloved and collectable cult metal/hard rock albums from the '70s. Their legend has only grown throughout the years, and notable metal critics such as Martin Popoff have long heaped praise upon their albums. To the best of knowledge, CAIN has not performed live since the late '70s.
