The Lower 5th w/ Merry Weathers opening
October 18th
8:00 pm - Cover $10


The Lower 5th:
The Lower 5th incorporates Folk, Rock, Blues, Reggae, Country and Bluegrass to produce a unique blend of Midwestern Soul that swings, sways, rocks, and wails. Luke Jorgensen, Cory Swadley and Paul Metz began to work together in 2010 to write and perform songs that draw from and build upon their eclectic musical roots. With the addition of Jeremy Henning (Trombone) and Audrey Pescatelli (bass), The Lower 5th grew to become a band of powerhouse musicians that play high energy music from the heart and leave it all on stage with every performance. After the tragic loss of their leader, Luke Jorgensen, the band committed to carry on in his honor an uplifting message of Hope that continues to resonate through their music. The Lower 5th was voted Artist of the Year at the 2018 Madison Area Music Awards and their debut album Hope won Album of the Year. The band has performed at countless venues across central Wisconsin and has been featured at some of the Midwest's finest Music Festivals including, Bratfest, Ragged Roots, Between the Waves Music Festival, Driftless Music Gardens' Bonfire Festival & Peoplefest, Charity Jamboree, The Wiskeyonsin Family Reunion, Lands End & Kettle Moraine Summer Concert Series, radio and television performances as well as Monthly residency at The Up North Bar. The Lower 5th has also performed support for national acts including Boyd Tinsley of the Dave Matthews Band, Kaleo, Gangsta Grass, and The Railsplitters.

Merry Weathers:
A group of Midwest musicians, and best of friends, got together to play some live music in their hometown of Sparta, Wisconsin, on the Eve of Thanksgiving, 2012. That was a magical night of music and merry-making, and it was also the birth of Merry Weathers. With two singer/songwriters, Stacy Hanson and Brian Bethke, both on deck as front-men, there was not a shortage of fun original tunes to be played, and the band blossomed with a combination of both of their songs, and some well-loved covers. Husband and wife duo, Jym and Laura Farley, brought in a solid rhythm section with both of them rotating on the bass. Jym also brings along solid guitar playing and Laura adds with upright bass, percussion, harmonica, and vocals. Rick Kreuziger brings it with Pedal Steel Guitar, and killer harmonies. And Rick's lovely wife Jess Kreuziger is the band's trusty sound gal that ties it all together. Over the year the band has collaborated and wrote even more original music, together as a group. They continue to play a variety of Folk, Bluegrass, Blues and Rock music, and are sure to please your ears with the raw original sound they produce.

Playing for the love of music is and always has been what Merry Weathers is about. They can be found most often as a Trio touring throughout Wisconsin, consisting of Stacy Hanson, Jym Farley and Laura Farley. Stacy Hanson leads the Trio with his songs, vocals and guitar. Jym Farley carries the rhythm on bass and lead guitar. Laura also plays upright bass, percussion and vocals. They're looking forward to a busy 2019 full of love and music.

Copper Box
October 19th
7:30 pm - Cover $15


Copper Box is an accordion-fueled, roots rock party! Based in Oshkosh, WI, awarded "Americana Artist of the Year 2012 & 2009" by WI Area Music Industry, this power quartet brings the best of what an accordion has to offer and beyond...from blues to 70's rock to polka rock to the kitchen sink!

There's a thread connecting the gutsy party sounds of the upper Midwest, the music of the legendary Esteban Jordan (the Jimi Hendrix of the Tejano accordion), the zydeco soul power of Clifton Chenier, the groovy raw sounds of Doug Sahm, and the ability to capture an audience through the electrifying improvisation of fusion roots rock. Copper Box, from Oshkosh, WI, finds that thread and puts it together in a genre-bending celebration that channels the rowdy communal feel of a small-town party with a big sound.

Claude Bourbon
November 1st
7:30 pm - Cover $10


Ready for a unique and talented take on a wide range of musical traditions? Claude Bourbon is known throughout Europe and America for amazing guitar performances that take blues, Spanish, and Middle Eastern stylings into uncharted territories.

Claude's inimitable style incorporates all five digits on each hand dancing independently but in unison, plucking, picking and strumming at such speed and precision that his fingers often seem to melt into a blur. Thousands of people in the UK, Europe and USA have enjoyed listening to this virtuoso and for the majority of his audience it is an experience that compels them to return again and again to hear and watch him play, as his fingers lightly dance over the strings of his guitar and create a unique sound that is 'Claude'.

It is very hard to describe the almost endless amalgam of different influences in Claude's playing, all melting into each other, as he moves from classical openings, across a whole continent of cultural roots, from the Balearic's to the Balkans, and then across to the Mississippi Delta, and shoehorned into all that is music that would not have been out of place in the courts of Emperors and Kings.

Claude Bourbon weaved his songs through the audience as if on a journey through life taking in different flavours of Europe and beyond. His Spanish medieval blues evolved into Gypsy, Eastern European, with a splash of Paco de Lucia, Delta Blues and more. Holding audience attention under a musical spell.

It's not easy to begin to describe the breadth or mastery of the music you will hear if you are fortunate to catch one of Claude's gigs, it is a sort of sensory experience like no other. A top master of his craft and never appearing to be rushed, he has impeccable timing and makes things that one can only marvel at seem simple.

GATL Gentlemen Anti-Temperance League:
The Gentlemen's Anti-Temperance League is a swing sextet from Minneapolis, Minnesota. The GATL came together in the winter of 2014 to breathe new life into old music. A melting pot of hot jazz, swing, and latin rhythms, brought to a boil by soaring vocals and endless energy. Their second album, "Masquerade" was released on June 3rd, 2017. GATL's second full-length album is a masterful mix of old-time hot jazz and latin rhythms, held together by modern songwriting and layered stories.

"The Gentlemen's Anti-Temperance League take things all the way back to the 1930s with their Django Reinhardt-influenced gypsy jazz, and they do it damn well." - Andrea Swensson, The Current

"... takes the best style of music from each decade after Prohibition and creates a unique musical style. - CBS Minnesota

Willow Waters:
As the ripples on the surface of the river mingle and transform the lines and reflections of our world, so Willow Water's music shapeshifts and defies categorization. Dancing lithely between rock and roll, country, old folk, and jazz; bolstered by rich, intricate, and often surprising arrangements and instrumentation, her music exhibits exhaustive precision and delightful variety. And centering this vast array of orchestration is Willow's singular voice - a voice that is grounding in timbre yet soaring in its revelations.

The Foragers
November 30th
7:30 pm - Cover $10




Larry Long & Raldo Schnieder
December 6th
7:30 pm- Cover $15


Larry Long:
Larry Long's a chip off the old block of American hardwoods, a singer-songwriter, spoken-word poet, rouser, seeker, storyteller and conservationist.

Like his artistic forefathers Pete Seeger and WoodyGuthrie before him, Long's sense of place and time is eloquently captured inhis music and in the powerful community building he'sdone all over the country and abroad.

Author Studs Terkel called Long "a true American Troubadour." When Pete Seeger was told that Larry is often referred to as the Pete Seeger of Minnesota, Pete replied, "I would be honored to be called the Larry Long of New York." Inspired by Seeger's work to clean up the Hudson River Larry founded the Mississippi River Revival. Long also assembled the first hometown tribute to Woody Guthrie in Okemah, Oklahoma, which today has evolved into the annual Woody Guthrie Folk Festival.

Long has sung at major concerts and festivals including Awesome Africa Festival (South Africa), Winnipeg Folk Festival (Canada), at the Hollywood Bowl with Kris Kristofferson, and at Madison Square Garden with Joan Baez and others for Pete Seeger's 90th Birthday Celebration.

Long is a recipient of the In The Spirit of Crazy Horse Award and the Pope John XXIII Award for his work in forgotten communities.

Performing with Larry will be lead-guitarist, composer, producer George Parrish, who has over 50 years' experience in the music industry. Throughout his storied career, Mr. Parrish has performed nationally with the likes of Seals & Crofts, Eumir Deodato, Cherrell, and Alexander O'Neal.

Raldo Schneider:
Raldo Schneider refers to himself as just 'an old country boy with a guitar and a song', but as one of his many admirers wrote,"Raldo's the greatest unknown songwriter that America has."


Schneider's musical influences are John Prine and Neal Young. Growing up and working on a family farm in Iowa also influences his writing. As Raldo tells it, "I taught myself to play the guitar during the winter of 1979 while snowed in for days o out on the rural route. I also started writing songs that winter."

Over the years Schneider's recorded twelve full-length albums of original material. His CD 'Burning Daylight' won best country CD of the year in 2012 from the Rural Roots Music Commission.

Raldo's songs will make you laugh and a moment later put a tear in your eye. His quick witted humor is reflected in the names of the bands who've given him musical support through the years, which include 'The Sway Backs', 'Old Dogs', 'New Tales', 'The Night Crawlers', 'The Woodhogs' and 'No Problemo Band'.

Raldo Schneider has been a long time supporter of the Mississippi River Revival and created his own hometown Cedar Falls version with an annual Cedar River Festival.

Joining Raldo Schneider at Leo & Leona's will be lead guitarist Rick Ottman and Travis Smiley on bass.
