Description

Minneapolis doesn’t have quite the entertainment cachet of New York or L.A., but Abdo has been able to make a good living here as an entertainment attorney. A rock musician in his youth, Abdo has represented major-market DJs and radio execs, news anchors, and musicians including Jonny Lang, the Replacements and Stephen Greenberg (of “Funkytown” fame). He helps locally rooted artists navigate the recording industry, which he recently described as “a slowly dying business.”
