Dave Thune gets down

Dave Thune's son Dusty got married in Irvine Park this weekend, and from all accounts, the Ward 2 City Council member got down like few other fathers of the groom. His Backstreet Boogie Band played the wedding on Saturday night.
(They played "Here Comes the Sun" for the first dance between the bride and groom, by the way.)
St. Paulites familiar with the Harley-driving, boot-stomping council member will recall the band also played for one of his election fundraisers (Were his son's marriage to meet with such success. OK, maybe not quite that close a finish at the polls.) The band also played the classic rock stage at the Taste of Minnesota,
"It was a great night," said Thune. "It's just one more thing a dad can do for his kid."
