Now ShowingHere's what's coming next from Table Salt Productions!
2023 is shaping up to be very exciting indeed!!
We started the year by getting "back out there" and supporting our beloved friends and fellow artists in performances all over the Twin Cities — including beautiful shows by Gary Rue & Leslie Ball, the High 48s, and some great shows at Strike Improv Theatre.
Next, Dennis and Jim hosted a Sweethearts Show at Crooners up in Fridley. We were thrilled to share the stage with some gorgeous singers, and we even got to perform one of our own songs, "Romance," from Honeywine's newest album.
Speaking of, in May we hosted a CD release event for that CD, A Desert in Bloom (available for purchase here as a CD and here as a digital download). This unique event featured musical performances by Honeywine vocalists Dorian Chalmers, Dennis Curley, and Becky Schlegel, as well as Honeywine guitarist Gary Rue; we were also joined by special guest Anthony Ihrig, founding member of the Bluegrass band The High 48s and co-host of the hit YouTube show "Back Catalog Listening Party." Anthony interviewed Honeywine lyricist Jim Robinson and composer Dennis Curley, as well as the other performers. We talked about the origins of the group, the creative process that went into creating the new songs, and so much more!
What's coming up? A ton of shows featuring Dennis and his various bands (check out Dennis' calendar here), plus monthly improv workshops led by Jim! We are also planning our annual storytelling show, as well as our annual musical fundraiser.
We can’t wait for the rest of 2023 — watch this space!

PressSome comments from Twin Cities reviewers:
The hilarious and touching vignettes span a whole range of experiences ... [there's] something for everyone in this delightful collection of songs and stories!
I applaud this new company
for producing local,
The nonstop volley of improvisational riffing [produces] enough manic energy and irreverent humor to keep even the most reluctant of minds buzzing with laughter.
If you're a fan of John Denver, "Country Roads" is a must-see.... These are faithful interpretations of the songs we know and love, which Dennis sings beautifully!
