Restrictions related to the coronavirus are slowly being eased, but the show by Rebecca and the Grey Notes scheduled for May 22 at Tallys Tap & Eatery in Waukesha has been postponed. While we are eager to get back to performing live music, we want to make sure our fans are safe and healthy. When our live music restarts, watch here and on our Facebook page for updates.
We have been using the Twitter account #hofnerbass to converse with our fans. But that really was the personal account of Mike, our bassist. So we’ve created our own #rebeccaandthegreynotes account on Twitter, and we’ll be testing it out over the next few weeks. If you happen to see us on Twitter, give us a shoutout!
The band returns Friday, March 6, to the site of its first concert, which was held in April 2013. It should be an interesting night because we’ll be debuting some new cover songs, including a rearrangement of a Beatles tune, a blues song made famous by the Allman Brothers and a tune from Joe Walsh’s playlist. Enjoy Tally’s famous and bountiful fish fry, then listen to three sets of original music along with covers of material from artists such as Linda Ronstadt, Norah Jones, Bonnie Raitt, old Fleetwood Mac, the Byrds, Led Zeppelin, and maybe, just maybe, Black Sabbath. First chord will be struck at 8:30 p.m.
The band, fresh off a performance at Parkside 23 in Brookfield last week, will be returning to the live music venue on Feb. 4 and Feb. 18. Parkside 23 is a farm-to-table restaurant with an extensive menu and choice of beverages. We’ll be performing in the bar area, which allows listeners to enjoy the band in an up-close and personal setting. And there is no cover charge. Hope you can join us!
The band wishes all of our fans a very happy and prosperous New Year! We will be starting our new year with a show at 6 p.m. Jan. 7 at Parkside 23 in Brookfield. We also will be at Parkside 23 two times in February, once in March, once in May and once in June. We’ll also be visiting the Studio Winery in Lake Geneva in April as we start to fill in our 2020 events for the year. Watch our schedule for more details.
Rebecca and the Grey Notes would like to thank everyone who ventured out to support us throughout 2019. We have been blessed with wonderful fans and promoters who appreciate the complexity and value of live music. The venues included the Studio Winery in Lake Geneva, the Oconomowoc Arts Center, Paulie’s Pub in West Allis, Polish Fest, Summerfest, Bastille Days, Tally’s Tap & Eatery in Waukesha, Parkside 23 in Brookfield and Tosa Fest in Wauwatosa. Our next gig is 6 p.m. Jan. 7, 2020, at Parkside 23 in Brookfield. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
We wrapped up our summer performance schedule with shows Friday night, Sept. 6, at Tally’s Tap & Eatery in Waukesha and Saturday, Sept. 7, at Tosa Fest in Wauwatosa. Tally’s provided an intimate setting for our original music, while Tosa Fest gave us one last shot for the year on a large, festival stage. Thanks to all of our fans for supporting our music. We’ll be back at Tally’s in late November.
We have a double header coming up. We’ll be performing at 8:30 p.m. Sept. 6 at Tally’s Tap & Eatery, S31-W24661 Sunset Drive, Waukesha, and at 3 p.m. Sept. 7 at the Rotary Stage at Tosa Fest. Both performances are free. These two gigs will wrap up our 2019 summer concert series, in which we played major music venues such as Summerfest, Bastille Days, Polish Fest and the Wisconsin State Fair, and cozier gigs at Tally’s, Paulie’s in West Allis and Parkside 23 in Brookfield. Thanks to everyone who supported live music this summer!
