October 27th

The Genesee Ridge Bluegrass band hails from the Lake Country area of Waukesha County. Every one of its members is dedicated to moving bluegrass music forward and keeping strong the acoustic instrumentation. All four of these musicians had been playing for many years in other bands but when they meshed together back in 2012 they were amused to find their vocals were well balanced and provided a sweet blend. Their instrumentations enhance each other well and they often challenge and encourage each other to go for it more or push the limits!

The Whiskeybelles
November 2nd
8:00 pm - Cover $15


"The Whiskeybelles is not your typical Milwaukee band. Not even taking into account the band's entirely female populace, the outfit expertly toes the line of talented original act and more-than capable cover band. Its upbeat and experienced melding of country, folk and Americana proves a welcome resident to dive bars and massive outdoor festivals alike. And at the tender age of two, the trio has managed to garner growing consideration from local promoters...not to mention a Wisconsin Area Music Industry (WAMI) award along the way." - Milwaukee Magazine

November 16th

Barbaro:
Barbaro use traditional bluegrass instruments to create a unique blend of country, jazz and newgrass styles resulting in a melting pot of something auld and something new.

Thunder Rain:
Thunder and Rain is a 5-piece acoustic americana band from the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Consisting of acoustic guitar, mandolin, dobro, fiddle and upright bass, Thunder and Rain seamlessly blends their favorite elements of bluegrass, country, pop and alt-rock to cultivate their own take on the American roots music traditions. Driven by the catchy choruses and dreamy melodies sung by Erinn Peet-Lukes, the band perfectly supports her heartfelt songwriting with strong country grooves, lush harmonies and rich instrumental decoration.

Jes Raymond & The Blackberry Bushes:
Jes Raymond's songs connect the day-to-day with the muses of wonder and myth. They draw from the deep well of American Roots music for a modern sound that has a light-hearted rusticity, elegance, and soul. The Blackberry Bushes fall somewhere between Stevie Nicks, Gillian Welch, and The Infamous Stringdusters.

An award winning bluegrass & Americana band that is in moments haunting and in others: an all out revival. With a rotating cast of believers, Jes Raymond and Jakob Breitbach simultaneously honor the genius of tradition and innovation. Skillful flatpicking interlocks soundscapes with virtuosic fiddle improvisation and top-shelf songwriting.

Timbre Junction
November 17th
7:30 pm - Cover $7


As one of the Twin Cities hardest working acoustic acts, Timbre Junction has cemented a reputation for playing across a variety of musical styles and putting on a spirited show. With their emphasis on skillful playing, tight arrangements and expressive vocals done "their way", Timbre Junction pushes the envelope...this is not your everyday Minnesota bluegrass band.

While traditional bluegrass, country blues, cowboy and western swing anchor their repertoire, the band is far from predictable and can be tough to categorize. What makes Timbre Junction different is their taking a song from any era or genre, and turning it on its head to make it their own.

Timbre Junction's lineup has evolved since they formed in 1998. Founded by Minnesota bluegrass stalwarts Mike Regouski and Karen Radford, the band rotated players for some years until settling upon the current crew which now includes distinguished Minnesota musician Joel Johnson (Guitar/Vocals) and Mike Forney (Fiddle) who was last to join in the spring of 2017 after moving to the area from the east coast.

Dead Horses
December 1st
8:30 pm


At fifteen, Dead Horses frontwoman Sarah Vos' world turned upside down. Raised in a strict, fundamentalist home, Vos lost everything when she and her family were expelled from the rural Wisconsin church where her father had long served as pastor. What happened next is the story of Dead Horses' stunning new album, 'My Mother the Moon', a record full of trauma and triumph, despair and hope, pain and resilience.

Blending elements of traditional roots with contemporary indie folk, the album is both familiar and unexpected, unflinchingly honest in its portrayal of modern American life, yet optimistic in its unshakable faith in brighter days to come. Earthy and organic, Vos' songs often reveal themselves to be exercises in empathy and outreach; she writes not only to find meaning in the struggles she's endured, but also to embrace kindred souls on their own personal journeys of self-discovery. As much as the album is a reckoning with the past and everything she witnessed growing up (mental illness, poverty, addiction, and violence), it's also an effort to shape the future, to build a community based around art and love and beauty and acceptance, a community to replace the one she was so brusquely robbed of as a child.

Doors open at 7:00pm, show starts at 8:30.

Courtney Hatman & Friends
Dec 7th

Tom Wopat
Dec 9th
4:00 pm - Tickets $20


All it takes is a phrase or two from Tom Wopat's warm, engaging baritone to trigger the desire to hear more. And the more one listens, the better it gets from the way he finds the heart of a song's story to his lyrical phrasing and his gently swinging, jazz-infused rhythms.

That's a large handful of uniquely appealing qualities, and they're all over the fourteen utterly captivating tunes on I've Got Your Number.Tom applies his far-ranging interpretive skills to discovering new, intriguing musical twists in such Great American Songbook classics as "The Good Life," "The Folks Who Live On The Hill," "Call Me," "Born To Be Blue," "I Won't Dance" and, of course, the title track. As if that wasn't enough, he also takes his listeners on adventurous new journeys through contemporary songs from the likes of Paul Simon, Judy Collins, Bruce Springsteen, Bruce Hornsby and James Taylor.
