Medicine Brothers & Friends
January 19th
7:30 pm - Cover $5


The Medicine Brothers are Shawn Neary, Jamie Waggoner, Sandler Waggoner, & Uncle Mike Richardson. The seeds of the Medicine Brothers were sown in Owen & Vigo County, Indiana. Jamie & Sandler grew up in Terre Haute within sight of the Wabash river a couple blocks off of Highway 41 and Highway 40. Half the family lived in the country and thats where Uncle Mike comes in. Between 6th St in Terre Haute and Rattlesnake Road in Owen County, the Richardson and Waggoner families would get together, circle up, and spend the weekend picking the tunes their parents picked, playing the songs they heard on the records of their grandparents, and writing a few of their own. They all discovered Viroqua and the Driftless in their own time, where their paths crossed with Shawn Neary, Iowa born, son of the middle west. Shawn's life long deep love and reverence for music led him to become proficient on more than a few instruments, but an upright bass sings in his hands. They began playing together in a second floor apartment, and shored up their songs in bars and bonfires throughout the Driftless Area & Vernon County Wisconsin. They are now a band of four- Uncle Mike on the mandolin, Jamie on acoustic, Sandler on Telecaster & acoustic, and Shawn on upright bass. They all sing, and they like to sing together when they can.

Chicago Farmer & Luke Callen
January 20th
7:30 pm - Cover $10


Chicago Farmer:
Chicago Farmer, the moniker Bloomington, Illinois' Cody Diekhoff performs and writes under, is set to independently release his 7th album, Midwest Side Stories, on September 30, 2016. Midwest Side Stories is about hope, depression, job loss, meth, skateboards, a divided nation, used cars, the late shift, farms, factories, the destruction of our environment, and still being around to sing about it. The new release contains ten tracks all of which were written by Diekhoff (pronounced dee-cough), with the exception of the John Hartford classic "I'm Still Here."

Lyrically driven, Chicago Farmer delves into the social and political issues of today's world, taking it all in and putting it back out through music as a commentary on modern times in the Midwest. With his unfeigned and relatable approach, Chicago Farmer has earned a place in the heart of this generation's rise of protest songs. He composes music written and sung by and for the working man, the "regular person", bringing to mind modern day folk tales.

Luke Callen:
Luke Callen is a hard-driving, finger-style guitar picker originally from the small river town of La Crosse, WI-in the heart of the Driftless region. Pulling from the traditions of American folk, blues, and country music, Luke has one foot in the past and one foot in the here and now. Echoing the voices of Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Ramblin' Jack Elliot and Townes Van Zandt, Luke crafts songs of people, places, and time in all of its forms.

From the Mississippi Valley, learning by ear the songs of Harry Smith's Anthology of American Folk Music, to campfires, classrooms, honky tonks and clubs across the country, Luke brings his humble sense of humor and humanity to any ear that will listen. With his guitars, harmonicas, and banjo in tow, Luke has played hundreds of shows spanning both coasts, the American west, south and heartland. He has had the opportunity to provide support for Dom Flemons, The Dustbowl Revival, Kacy & Clayton, James McMurtry, Whiskey Shivers, Charlie Parr, The Lowest Pair, The Last Revel, Lilly Hiatt, Chicago Farmer, and Robbie Fulks among others.

Armchair Boogie and Barbaro
January 27th
7:30 pm - Cover $5


Armchair Boogie:
Armchair Boogie formed in the heart of Wisconsin in 2014 as a banjo and guitar duo. After playing a handful of shows, Augie Dougherty (banjo) and Ben Majeska (guitar) recruited a well versed rhythm section to hold down the upbeat tempos and provide an extra oomph that'll bring even the saddest uncle to a dance floor. This happened in October 2015; and in the few short years since, they've toured consistently around the midwest, played with top notch artists such as Jeff Austin Band and Horseshoes & Hand Grenades, and played venues as big as The Majestic Theater in Madison. The sound has a newgrass feel that's not afraid to delve into realms like funk or country.

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.

Timbre Junction
February 10th
7:30 pm - Cover $10


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.

Horseshoes & Hand Grenades's
February 16th
First Show - 7:00 pm - Cover $20
Second Show - 9:30 pm - Cover $20


Did you see the part about TWO shows in one night?

Hailing from the river town of Stevens Point, Wisconsin, HHG plays something like progressive high-energy old-time folk music. With strong roots in old-time and bluegrass, the band has formed it's own unique style born from the diverse musical backgrounds and interests of the five friends who make up the band. All born and raised in the great state of Wisconsin, Horseshoes & Hand Grenades began playing music and their earliest shows in the spring of 2009. Since then, the band has shared the stage with Merle Haggard, the Infamous Stringdusters, Trampled by Turtles, Yonder Mountain String Band, Railroad Earth, the Del McCoury Band, and many more. Being mostly inspired by rivers, valleys, good friends, and good drink, this five piece is as sturdy as any midwest riverbed and will make your toes tap from sundown to sunrise.

Old School Variety Show
February 17th
7:30 pm



Tommy Bentz - George Harrison Birthday Show
February 23rd
7:30 pm - Cover $7


Growing up in a small Wisconsin town isn't always limiting as it sounds. An eclectic musician, Bentz totes history with the violin, oboe, saxophone, guitar, and bass. Putting all of this musical knowledge together to start a band for the first time in high school, Bentz's love of music would give him the flexibility to perform in rock, classical, jazz, blues, bluegrass and newgrass bands. When asked for his resume, Bentzs list goes on...

His sound gives credence to this fact the many faces and different genres of music have allowed him to create his own sound: one that blends ideals from many flavors of music into one (kind of like at the ice cream store he managed as a teen). The distinct movement, layering, and syncopation of his style, though intense, is immediately accessible to the listener. Some may say that Tommy Bentz's greatest asset is his confident and mature electric slide guitar style, yet others will argue that his insightful lyrics and adept layering of sound are what keep them coming back to hear him play again and again. Regardless, with three full length albums under his belt - each of them a landmark of musical growth in a coming of age fashion, Tommy Bentz represents a man with spirit, drive, thoughtful journeys, and musical ability that so many musicians strive to achieve.
