The musical talents of Mr. Ashby are known internationally, which helps tremendously in bringing a fan base to not only financially support the community, but to encourage others to take part, as well, in building and demonstrating the excellence surrounding our neighborhoods.”
While The Wenso Ashby Project is not be the biggest name to ever play the revered Capri Theater, which is known to be the opening stage for Minneapolis’ own son, Prince, he is humbled to know that one of the greatest to have ever played in the building or any building for that matter shared a similar compassion to want to help others. The spirit of music can move people to unite and bring about a social conscience of good.
