JB’s Album (Minnesota Woman) and JB Lite (the yard party) music


For those of you visiting my website for the first time, I hail from a little prairie town in South Dakota where we were entertained by the local, homegrown entertainers, circa 1978. The local, hard working  people always had a place to go and enjoy a part of life so few know today. It was an innocent time where laughter flowed as free as the people. I was fortunate to be in the middle of this and will forever be thankful!
