Every fall, AEI will donate a furnace and installation to a neighbor or family in need within the South Minneapolis Community. The selection process is based on family situation, income,  medical requirements if any, and overall need. If you know of a neighbor you think might qualify for this program, please send an email to info@AEIexpertise.com with a description of the situation and the reason why you think that this neighbor or family should be selected for our program. We will work in conjunction with local organizations, nonprofits and communities of faith to spread the word.

Koch-Marshall Trio at The Hook & Ladder Theater, 3010 Minnehaha Ave. • Doors 7:30pm / Music 8:00pm / 21+
The Tommy Bentz Band from Wisconsin will open.
Koch-Marshall Trio: 
Greg Koch and the Koch-Marshall trio consists of guitarist Greg Koch, his son Dylan Koch, and Hammond B3 specialist Toby Lee Marshall. At the heart of this organ trio is a blues sensibility – but Koch’s compositions are an amalgam of rock, funk, jazz and country served up with heavy grooves and dynamic improvisations delivered with no small does of humor and occasional wild abandon. Milwaukee native Greg Koch has forged a successful career as a guitar player’s guitarist. He has been called “fiendishly talented” by Guitar Player Magazine and “scary good” by guitar phenom Joe Bonamassa. Koch is widely known for his lengthy tenure as an international ambassador for Fender Guitars, which listed him in the “Top Ten Unsung Guitarists.” Greg is a contributing columnist for a variety of guitar magazines, including Guitar Player Magazine which listed Greg’s “Chief’s Blues” in the “40 Badass Blues Solos You Must Hear.” 
Tommy Bentz Band: 
The Tommy Bentz Band extensively tours regionally in the US and bi-annually to the UK. They’re a fantastic power trio that has been in existence for over 15 years, jamming in the style of “The Allman Brothers meet Van Morrison.” Standout slide player Tommy Bentz leads the band and has often been touted as one of the best in the Midwest.

Madeline & Sam’s Magical Storytime @ Boneshaker Books, 2002 23rd Ave S • 11am
It is our mission with this story time to promote children’s books that shine a spotlight on a wide array of racial and cultural identities, genders, orientations, experiences and abilities. We want to create a space that places a special emphasis on promoting self love, empathy and a greater understanding of the strange, magical world we inhabit. There is serious deficit in children’s books that depict protagonists who are a people of color, people with disabilities, LGBTQIA+ or any combination of the above. That is why Madeline and Sam’s Magical Story Time seeks out books that do just that. Positive representation in books is crucial to a child’s development of a positive self image. It can be absolutely life affirming for a child to see a protagonist who reflects them accomplishing anything they set their mind to. It is also crucial in developing empathy for a child to experience diversity at a young age. This story time will not only be educational, but spectacularly fun! Before each reading we will have one minute wiggle parties and coloring pages that correlate with that weeks books.

Sulari is author of The Rowland Sinclair Mystery series, historical crime fiction novels (eight in total) set in the 1930s.
