Next up: the big gig

We are very fortunate and extremely grateful to be invited back to play Summerfest for the fourth time. We will be returning to our home base, the UScellular Connection Stage, for a performance at 2 p.m. Friday, Sept. 17. We will be one of three bands performing that day that are led by women. Haley Grace and the Rebels will open the day, and Brookfield native Nora Collins will start her set at 6 p.m. Other bands include Madison County at 4 p.m., Ray Fulcher at 8 and Jake Owen at 10. This is a very strong country/ Americana/rock lineup, so we hope to see you there.

Next Up: State Fair

We’ll be rockin’ the Major Goolsby’s Heartland Stage this Sunday, Aug. 8, beginning at noon, at the Wisconsin State Fair. Yes, it will be steamy, but the Major provides many shaded tables and ice-cold beverages. We’ll also be at the same place, same time, on Saturday, Aug. 14. Hope to see you there!

Next Up: Studio Winery

Thanks to Jesse and the whole crew at the baaree for hosting our live event Wednesday, June 23. Despite the partial conflict with the important Milwaukee Bucks game, we had a large crowd that included some familiar faces and well as new fans who loved our original music. We were fortunate to be included in a very strong week’s worth of live music at the outdoor venue. Our next scheduled performance will be from 5-9 p.m. Saturday, July 10, at the Studio Winery + Geneva Lake Distilling, 401 E Sheridan Springs Road, Lake Geneva. Hope to see you there!

Next up: the barree

Please join us June 23 as we escape from the pandemic bubble and venture outside for a gig at the barree, a beautiful backyard setting adjacent to the cheel restaurant in downtown Thiensville. While the cheel was destroyed in a fire, the barree is open and is serving food and beverages. We’ll strike our first chord at 6 p.m. and last chord at 9 p.m. Hope to see you there.

Next up: Studio Winery

We’re excited to be returning to Studio Winery and Distillery this Saturday, April 10, for another free show. First chord will be struck at 5 p.m., and we’ll wrap things up at 9. We played at Studio Winery in March and had a fantastic crowd, so we’re eager to play our live music! Hope to see you there.

On the radio

Five songs off our second album, “Volume 2,” will be featured, one each day, March 22-26 on WGTD-FM. The music will be part of the station’s “Noon Tunes” program as the final segment of the WGTD Midday News and will air around 12:20 p.m. daily. The songs to be played, in no particular order, include: “Come See the World,” “Lovin’ You Every Single Minute (of the Day)”, “Picture of You,” “It Doesn’t Matter” and “Softly Fade Away.” You can tune in over the air to listen to WGTD–if you live in the Kenosha or Racine area, the station is at 91.1 on the FM dial; if you are near Lake Geneva, it’s at 103.3 FM; and if you are in the Elkhorn area, you can find the station at 101.7 FM. You also may listen live online at: www.wgtd.org. Coincidentally, we will be performing in Lake Geneva this Saturday, from 5-9 p.m., at Studio Winery + Geneva Lake Distilling and will be offering a preview of these songs. It’s always pretty cool to hear your songs on the radio. Over the last few years our original music has been featured on four other radio stations. Thanks to WGTD for playing our songs!

Welcome, 2021!

We are so glad to put 2020 in our rearview mirror and focus our attention to getting back to performing live music. Rebecca and Tyler have been playing duo gigs from 8 to 11 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month at Kelly’s Bleachers in Wind Lake. They will be playing there again April 7.

The full band will be getting back together again for a full night of music March 20 and April 10 at Studio Winery in Lake Geneva.

We also have scheduled a date in June for a return to The Barree in Thiensville, where we played last summer.

Some of the outdoor festivals where we have previously played have been canceled again this year do to the COVID-19 virus, but we still have two performance dates set for the Wisconsin State Fair in early August and we’re hoping to release a date soon for a performance at Summerfest, which has been moved to three weekends in September.

We hope that all of our fans are staying healthy and safe as we continue to navigate through the pandemic.

2020 ends on a high note

Due to the coronovirus pandemic, we didn’t get to perform as much as we wanted in 2020, given that gigs at Summerfest, Polish Fest, State Fair and other live-venue gigs were postponed. And we haven’t been able to rehearse since March. But we were able to squeeze in some shows, such as performances at The Baaree in Thiensville and at Studio Winery in Lake Geneva, that could result in similar gigs for 2021. Thanks again to everyone who has followed us! We are looking forward to a better 2021.
