1987 was a notable year for Minnesota: the Twins won the World Series, Prince released one of his best albums in Sign 'O' the Times, and St. Louis Park's own Coen Brothers released their first great comedy Raising Arizona. 1987 was also the year that Dr. Mambo's Combo was formed, and it just so happens that their crowd-pleasing funk/R&B sound has endured well enough to land them a regular Sunday/Monday night residency at Bunker's. You might wander in with a "nothing else to do tonight" attitude, only stagger out having your head blown clean off by their top-notch soul sounds, the end product of 21 years' worth of hard work and refinement.
Mondays, Sundays, 9 p.m.; Mondays, Sundays, 9 p.m. Starts: Dec. 5. Continues through July 3, 2010
