Much like the iconic musician he represents, the frontman of the Minneapolis-based Prince tribute band Chase & Ovation is referred to by only one name. He is known as Chase, and he and the rest of his musical posse will be paying homage to Prince Friday November 24th at Rhythm City Casino Resort.
After the death of the highly praised rock star and musical innovator in April 2016, Chase & Ovation bear the responsibility of keeping the essence of Prince alive for his many, many fans. Throughout Chase’s career — no matter what the show was or if the set consisted of originals or cover songs — people would inevitably tell him, “Hey, has anybody ever told you that you sound like Prince?”
“One day I said, boy, wouldn’t it be kind of interesting if I attempted to do a show or two of just Prince’s music?”. Through various channels, Chase & Ovation got a chance to perform at the highly coveted First Avenue nightclub in Minneapolis — a venue which Prince himself helped make famous by using it as a location for live music scenes in the iconic film “Purple Rain.” The 2006 show was seen by Prince.
“From that point forward, he gave us the thumbs up to do the show,” said Chase. “And here we are, 10 years later, still performing. It’s been a wild ride ever since.”
