It's just a coincidence that the pronunciation of Erin Bode's last name rhymes with "roadie," but the St. Louis-based singer and her group very well may need an on-tour helper or two if their travel schedule gets any busier.
This weekend, Bode and band will be headed to Chicago for a gig Sunday as part of the Wine Festival at the Chicago Botanic Garden in Glencoe, IL. The following weekend, they're off to Rochester, NY to perform Saturday, June 13 at a restaurant called Max of Eastman Place as part of the Rochester International Jazz Festival.
Bode also got some favorable press coverage in a recent article at the online news site MinnPost.com as part of a feature story looking at former Twin Cities residents who are doing well in the music business. Bode grew up in Minnesota before moving to St. Louis to attend Webster University. You can read the MinnPost article here.
