Michael Martin Murphey
May 24th
7:00 pm - Cover $30, VIP $45


Michael Martin Murphey's musical journey has taken many unpredictable paths over the past 50 years. Topping the Pop, Country, Western and Bluegrass charts, Murphey has never been one to rest on his laurels.

A loyal American son from Texas, Murphey is best known for his chart-topping hits "Wildfire," Carolina In The Pines," "What's Forever For," "Long Line of Love," "Geronimo's Cadillac", "Cowboy Logic," and many more across his 35 albums released to date.

Murphey's long-running incarnation as a purveyor of the music, lifestyle, and values of the American West is one of many musical mantles he has worn over the years. To track his career path is to span the country itself, from coming of age in the Texas folk music scene, to Los Angeles to Colorado to Nashville and then back to his native Texas.

Murphey's original songs have been recorded by The Monkees, Kenny Rogers, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, John Denver, Hoyt Axton, Johnny Cash, Tracy Byrd, Lyle Lovett, Jerry Jeff Walker, Dolly Parton, Johnny Rivers, Billy Ray Cyrus, and many others.

Sapsuckers - Opening Milbillies
May 27th
7:30 pm - Cover $15


Sapsuckers:
Nominated Best Country Band, Wisconsin Area Music Industry Assn.

The Sapsuckers write and perform original country music that blends humor, heartache, and honkytonk.

Featuring lead vocalist Nikki Grossman (fiddle, vocals, guitar) and anchored in the songwriting team of Grossman and Joe Hart (guitar, vocals, mandolin), the band's style ranges from hillbilly roots to Nashville pop, while their engaging performance style has earned a growing fanbase in the Midwest and beyond.

Formed as an acoustic duo in 2013, the couple began performing with a backing band in 2019, and is currently booking shows in both configurations.

Their fourth studio album will be released in 2022. Recorded at Native Sound Recordings in Saint Louis and co-produced by Ryan Koenig (Pokey La Farge, Rum Drum Ramblers), the new record features the expanded lineup of the band.

The duo has recorded three albums: "Don't Think About Tomorrow Tonight" (2018) was launched at an official SXSW showcase, where they earned a standing ovation, as well as numerous Midwest tour dates. The album was co-produced by John Wood (Richard and Linda Thompson, Cat Stevens, Incredible String Band). The Sapsucker's video for the song "Fools Were Made to be Broken" was premiered by Radio Heartland on Minnesota Public Radio, The Current. "Ocooch Mountain Home," (2015), received high praise from the likes of fROOTS, Bluegrass Today, and Country Music People UK. "Speaking of Music" (2013) captures the old-timey roots of the band.

Grossman and Hart live with their daughter on a rural homestead in Southwestern Wisconsin. Frequently on the road, they work with steady bands based in St. Louis and Minneapolis.

Milbillies:
Established in late 2018, The MilBillies hit the ground running, bringing their unique synthesis of traditional and progressive bluegrass to venues and festivals throughout the upper Midwest and beyond. They have crafted a genuinely thrilling live show, taking "high-energy" musicianship to another level while enthralling the crowd with intoxicating melodies and lyrical subject matter any troubadour would tip their hat to.

All of this has garnered a WAMI nod for New Artist of the Year, an IBMA Official Showcase, a loyal following, and glowing reviews - Bluegrass Unlimited says The MilBillies sound "straddles the line between the traditional and progressive schools of bluegrass along with hints of blues, punk and country," while Milwaukee Record lauds their "punk-tinged barroom bluegrass." But whether you hear "animated urban style grass" (Bluegrass Today) or simply "an explosion of banjos, guitars and storytelling" (Shepherd Express), you're sure to leave a MilBillies show with a better understanding of what the fuss is all about.

Ghostland Radio
June 3rd
8:00 pm - Cover $10


Ghostland Radio is a Minnesota based group featuring Bryan Crigler (MoonDawg) on guitar and vocals, Ingrid Ogren (The Wide Awakes)on violin, Scott Lochner (The People Brothers Band, Texas Toast, Stanton West) on bass and Noah Glenn Short (Noah Short, Stanton West, Jaybone Bell and Restless Light) on drums and percussion.

The music draws from many different genres based in a Blues, Grunge, Soul, Rock, and Americana setting. Spawned from the recesses of Bryan's mind and then brought to the group to interpret a unified vision of what it might look like to be inside Bryan's head. Much of this material is projected from the places we tend to hide within ourselves. Places we rarely go. A realm of ghosts. We're trying to project the inhabitants of this ghostland back out into the world. We're a radio of sorts... a Ghostland Radio.
