Wings Over America is primarily composed of members of the Collective Unconscious, a St Cloud band who brought you the Beatles “Abbey Road”, the Beach Boys’ “Pet Sounds”, Simon and Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water”, CSNY’s “Deja Vu” and The Band’s “The Last Waltz”. You may have also seen them teamed up with the Fabulous Armadillos performing “Takin It To The Limit: A Tribute to the Music of the Eagles” and “A Doobie Brothers Tribute”. Every single one of these musicians is a professional in their own right, with an impressive array of music making with a “who’s who” in Minnesota Music. These nine musicians from the St Cloud Area have been making music together for 20 years in one form or another.

Wings Over America: A Tribute to Paul McCartney and Wings is based primarily on Wings 1976 live album “Wings Over America” with a few subtractions and additions. The album reached number one on the Billboard Charts in 1977 and was the fifth Wings album in a row to achieve that status. After the Beatles and a few solo Paul McCartney records, Wings (often referred to as “Paul McCartney and Wings” was formed in 1971 with his wife Linda, and Moody Blues’ guitarist Denny Laine. Several Beatles tunes (I’ve Just Seen a Face, Blackbird, Yesterday, The Long and Winding Road) are included in the set, along with some Moody Blues (Go Now) and McCartney solo tunes (Bluebird, Uncle Albert). The show becomes a great retrospective of McCartney’s career, and is a celebration of one of the most celebrated careers in the history of pop and rock music.

Wings Over America is: Jeff Engholm (bass and vocals), Muggsy Lauer (guitar and vocals), Amy Grinsteiner (keys), Mark Hasbrouck (guitar), Scott Chabot (drums), Mike Anderson (saxes), Ken Vork (trombone), Erin Vork (trumpet and horn), and Dwight Nelson (trumpet).

About the Talent:

Collective Unconscious

Formed in the spring of the year 2000 to support lead singer/bass player Jeff Engholm’s first solo CD (Summit Climb), CU performed around central Minnesota as a jam band. A couple of years of Wednesday nights at the Red Carpet Nightclub in St. Cloud, MN firmly established the band’s repertoire, and musicianship, and kept audiences dancing.

During that time they recorded and released a couple of albums of their original material: Collective Unconscious, and The Garden.

A few years later they began performing the Beatles Abbey Road album in its entirety, from Come Together all the way through Her Majesty (years before tribute bands were a thing). From there they expanded on to Simon & Garfunkel’s Bridge Over Troubled Water album (with strings and brass), CSNY’s Deja Vu album, The Band’s The Last Waltz (with a cavalcade of guest performers), and the epically grand album from The Beach Boys Pet Sounds (with a multitude of multi-instrumentalists playing over 30 different instruments).

Eventually, CU joined up with powerhouse The Fabulous Armadillos to perform a show called Takin’ It To The Limit: An Eagles Tribute, which has been entertaining sold-out houses across the midwest ever since.
