Dorothy at Varsity Theater, Minneapolis

“Opening the three-act evening was seasoned local band THE MIS/ING LETTERS, a guitar-driven alt rock (with a tinge of grunge) foursome (Bryan Murphy-guitar, vocals; Shannon Drymalski- drums; Elliott Heerman-bass; Josh Ripley- guitar), still on a musical high from being hand-picked to open for Bon Jovi last year at the Xcel Energy Center & also having recently supported the likes of Buckcherry, Crash Kings & Charm City Devils.”



Elliot Joined Band

Elliott Heerman: bass, backing vocals. Studied performance at Minnesota State University Moorhead and has been playing live rock ‘n’ roll for over 10 years. Influences include: Motorhead, B.B. King, Jack White & Cream. He plays bass for THE MIS/ING LETTERS and is the lead singer in the Minnesota blues & rock trio Johnny Yuma. He will rock you.



“There are oftentimes one finds themselves deeply impressed. For me, it comes during those moments when I see or hear of a local band making it into the limelight. I believe bands all start out with a huge dream of making it big like the bands or artist they most admire. Some of those bands make it & some do not, but the drive for the top seems to always be there. On Saturday night, THE MIS/ING LETTERS stepped into the limelight in front of a densely packed Xcel Energy Center. The band earned a truly iconic moment to warm the stage for Bon Jovi.”




”Tomorrow’s the day boys and girls... May the 4th be with you.”



Track by Track with The Missing Letters

“Twin Cities Media recently had the chance to sit down with THE MIS/ING LETTERS, a four-piece rock band hailing from right here in the Twin Cities. We got the chance to catch up with THE MIS/ING LETTERS ahead of their headlining St. Patrick’s Day show at The Parkway Theater. Following our conversation at The Parkway Theater, TML stopped by the Twin Cities Media studio for a Track by Track session. The guys stopped by our studio just days before heading out on their national tour with Adelitas Way to discuss their debut EP “Lucille”.”



The Mis/ing Letters, XIII Arrows & All Things Green at The Parkway Theater for St. Patrick’s Day

“With St. Patrick’s Day falling on a Friday this year, there was no shortage of things to do in the Twin Cities for those looking for something that would likely involve green beer and that one guy who is really feeling his green suspenders and “kiss me I’m Irish” shirt. Just about every venue in town had a show or event going on from St. Paul to Minneapolis & everywhere in between. However, I was lucky enough (get it, lucky) to find myself at The Parkway Theater for an evening of great music. Last night’s lineup featured a slew of bands, mainly from the Twin Cities. While there was no green beer there was inexpensive Bud Lights in green cans, which was a close second. And there were definitely a few dudes way too stoked on their green suspenders and Guinness hats.”
