Rep. Keith Ellison performing a parody to the tune of “People Get Ready” at MinnRoast 2015.
Council Member Jeremiah Ellison.
Rep. Keith Ellison joined us via video last year, but he’s got his guitar tuned up, and will perform another parody on stage at this year’s MinnRoast on April 27. Backing him on percussion will be his son, Minneapolis Council Member Jeremiah Ellison.
MinnRoast has become a highlight of the Minnesota political calendar, bringing politicians, actors, singers and journalists together at the Historic State Theatre to poke fun at the state of our state in parodies, video sketches, and monologues.
Joining the Ellisons in this year’s show: Gov. Mark Dayton, Speaker Kurt Daudt, actresses Sally Wingert and Michelle Hutchison, Sens. Amy Klobuchar and Tina Smith, Rep. Tom Emmer, Prairie Fire Lady Choir, actor Tyler Michaels, radio personalities Gary Eichten and Brian “BT” Turner, and many more.
