Minneapolis/St. Paul: Twin Cities, filled with Culture, Business, & ‘Minnesota Nice’

From a world-class Orchestra, to friendly Minnesotan Accents, and breathtaking views inbetween; Minnesota boasts one of the most unique and fun-loving cultures in the world. It is a city of iconic figures, home to Prince, Bob Dylan, and the Andrews Sisters. An alternative scene with hits from Husker Du, The Replacements, Suburbs, Suicide Commandos, and Soul Asylum. With Hip-Hop artists Brother Ali, Doom Tree, P.O.S., & Atmosphere.

Minnesota has the second highest colleges per capita, hosting a pool of young, ambitious talent. More & more of  which are exploring the possibility of a degree from an arts, media, design, or technical college. This is garnished by Minnesota’s rich history of street performing arts (Bob Dylan/West Bank Performers), to a very prominent local hip-hop scene we see today. Minnesota has been crowned the cultural capital of the Midwest. With affordable cost of living and over 10,000 lakes, trails, rivers & parks, it is a friendly place to explore.

The rivalry in the early 1900’s, between the Saint Paul Saints & Minneapolis Millers, showed us our differences have lead us nowhere. With the teams split between the two cities (9 mi apart), inner-city tensions and rivalries became more prevalent. This continued as the Minneapolis Lakers (1947-1960) remained a one city team.

It was in 1961, when the formation of the Minnesota Twins and Minnesota Vikings joined the entire state together. Since that point, every other sports team in Minnesota has been named after our great state: Timberwolves, Muskies, North Stars, Swarm, Wild, Lynx, Fighting Saints. It is when we use our talents in a positive, collaborative manner that we lift each other and the entire Midwest.

There are a broad range of start-up companies that have happened in Minnesota as well. Businesses are enticed by low cost of living, tax breaks for corporations, & low property values. These include giants: Target, SuperValu, UnitedHealth, 3M, Medtronic, General Mills, Best Buy, Buffalo Wild Wings, & Caribou Coffee.

Culture brought niche market startups to the Twin Cities, as well as many discount and secondhand stores. The Blue Network itself is a niche market startup. An empersario service; committed to providing the best local artists at the best local venues. It has been a learning process but I have found the venues & artists in Minnesota are very welcoming and open to working with anyone. There are bigger cities like Detroit, St. Louis, & Chicago where you must first pay your dues to ‘the union’. In Minnesota, people strive to further culture while helping one another in our pursuits. Its what makes here home and Minneapolis/St. Paul the Twin Cities filled with Culture, Business, & ‘Minnesota Nice’.

Meet the Network: Reo Galor
