Lori Dokken and James A. Rocco Will Perform Together on Facebook Live

Lori Dokken and James A. Rocco have been each other's fans for 15 years. On Friday, October 30, 2020, at 5 pm Central, they are joining forces for a relaxed musical "snack." live-streamed to https://www.facebook.com/unityminneapolis/ and https://www.facebook.com/lori.dokken

Rocco quipped, "My plan was when I get older, losing my hair, many years from now, I will join forces with a great pianist, get a stool and a microphone and sit there and sing for people." It may be a little sooner than I expected, but these are unprecedented times. When Lori invited me to spend an hour or so with her at her "virtual" venue, I jumped."

Over the past four decades, Lori Dokken has performed at every major venue in the Twin Cities from The Dakota to The Guthrie to The Ordway. She is a one of kind artist who brings a spiritual joy to everything she does.

Grab your favorite beverage and dress casual. It's going to be an off the cuff kick off to your Halloween weekend.

Tips will be accepted online during the event at either PayPal.me/LoriDokken or on Venmo: @Lori-Dokken

Lori Dokken: Over the past four decades, Lori Dokken has performed at every major venue in the Twin Cities from The Dakota to The Guthrie to The Ordway.
