Its a Hot summer!!! 

Wow! What a summer its been so far! We've played so many great places and met so many new friends. Started the latest run in New London, MN at Goat Ridge Brewing June 30th, played an opening set for Front Country at the Cedar Cultural Center in Minneapolis on July 3rd and then out to Greenwood,WI for their 4th of July bash. Great times!!! And lotsa great shows ahead so check our calendar here and follow us on Facebook so you don't miss out. Love to all and thanks so much for being the best friends and fans.


Bernie King and the Guilty Pleasures might be tough to bracket but they sure are easy to enjoy. A little bit blues, a little bit bluegrass, a little bit rock, and a little bit kitchen sink, a style of music that some fans have come to call “blues-grass”. You'll hear some great original songs inspired by the styles of Shane McGowan, Johnny Cash, The Rolling Stones, and Bill Monroe. With a rough and tumble mix of guitar, banjo, mandolin, bass, washboard, snare drum, and accordion.

Need a dose of good times? Bernie King and the Guilty Pleasures are what the doctor orders. 
Bernie King – singing, guitar, harmonica, songwriting
John Kurtis Dehn – guitar, mandolin, banjo, singing

10,000 Drops Distillery, 28 4th NE, Fairibault, MN

10,000 Drops is a Craft Distillery dedicated to distilling and aging the highest quality Whiskeys, Gins and Rums. It was founded with the goal of crafting the highest quality American spirits, in the spirit of the American craftsman.

The distillery is the dream for four friends who grew up together in Minnesota. After high school they went their separate directions, gaining skills in small business, retail, hospitality, chemical engineering, sustainable design and accounting. One fateful day in March of 2014 they met up for drinks and started talking about going into business for themselves. A distillery fit well with their skill sets and passion for great booze, and thus 10,000 Drops was born. They began production of their Whiskey and Rums in April of 2018 and opened their cocktail lounge on June 20th later that year.
