For the third consecutive year, we will be performing at the U.S. Cellular Connection Stage at Summerfest, the world’s largest music festival. It’s going to be a special day for us because we’ll be opening a full day of music produced by bands led by women. Rebecca will be singing her heart out beginning at noon, followed by Milwaukee’s own WhiskeyBelles at 2 p.m., Queeva at 4, Milwaukee’s own Nora Collins at 6, and headliners Lindsay Ell at 8 and Lauren Alaina at 10. Just for good measure, we’ll throw in fireworks at 9:30 p.m. It’s shaping up to be a great day to showcase what female vocalists can accomplish. Below is a photo of our first Summerfest performance in 2017.
We squeezed a new gig into our schedule on June 18 at Parkside 23, a high-end restaurant and bar in Brookfield. We crammed our amps and drums into a tight space and then played for three hours to an appreciative crowd. Thanks, Parkside 23, for the invite! Next up: noon July 3 at the U.S. Cellular Connection Stage at Summerfest, the world’s biggest music festival.
Thanks to Paulie’s Pub & Eatery for inviting us to play on a cold, rainy June 1. The show opened our summer tour, which continues Saturday, June 15, from 4 to 8 p.m. at Polish Fest, on the Summerfest grounds. We will be debuting a few new tunes along with original music from our first two albums and covers of such artists as Ann Peebles, Linda Ronstadt, Norah Jones, Tom Petty, Bonnie Raitt, Alison Krauss, Etta James, B.B. King, Led Zeppelin, the Byrds, Fleetwood Mac and more. Hope to see you there.
It’s not often that we get to do a gig in Milwaukee County, so we jumped at the offer to play at 10 p.m. June 1 at Paulie’s Pub & Eatery, 8301 W. Greenfield Ave., West Allis. The owners are doing a complete remodel of the bar/ restaurant’s inside, so don’t be surprised if you just see bare walls and toolboxes. The renovation should be completed by the end of the summer, and the result will be one of the finest live music venues in the area. This gig will officially open our busy summer of music, with performances in June at Polish Fest, July at Summerfest, Tally’s Tap & Eatery and Bastille Days, and August at the Wisconsin State Fair. Stay tuned for more updates.
