Cottage Grove

Not your normal garden-variety band

COTTAGE GROVE – Kevin Nichols, bass player for Ida Jane & The Weekend Gardeners, says he came up with the name of the band because “gardening is something we all like to fiddle around with a little bit.” 

OK, so maybe they need to learn to be a bit more proficient with their rakes and hoes. But it’s a whole different story when it comes to handling their musical instruments. 

Because you never know when they're ready to throw down a hoedown.

That’s exactly what they did Friday . . .
