Ben McMahon sits down with the members of Improvestra, a band unlike any other you’ll see on the peninsula.

This Twin Cities-based improvising orchestra is made up of 10 to 30 rotating members who follow the lead of conductor Adam Conrad. This is the first episode of our music series, Crew in the Shoe, where Ben McMahon sits down with musicians in the Wooden Shoe, the small home bar in the Peninsula Pulse offices, to talk music, playing the peninsula, and give us a taste of their performances.
