The first outdoor music festival at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum brings together three great acts under the stars! All proceeds benefit the gardens and programs of the Arboretum.

The legendary Honeydogs, in their only fall concert, plus singer songwriter Dan Rodriguez and Ali Gray’s Two Hicks and A Chick will guarantee a special night of music and fun surrounded by the natural wonder of the Arboretum.

One of the Twin Cities most enduring bands, the Honeydogs come together for special live opportunities like AppleJam. "People come and go — based on their lives or creative needs or whatever — but we've always managed to attract really great musicians. We love to play together," founder Adam Levy told The Current.

Dan Rodriguez’s latest single “25 Years” is on rotation on local stations. He’s also a Budweiser commercial star and has crafted several songs for their use. Dan’s played with Haley Reinhart, John McLaughlin, Will Hoge, Drew Holcomb, Sister Hazel, The Civil Wars, Andy Grammer, Need to Breathe, Tyrone Wells and Augustana.
