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.

Next up: Studio Winery

The band will be returning to the Studio Winery in Lake Geneva from 5-9 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 17, to perform original music from its two albums along with songs from such artists as Norah Jones, Ann Peebles, Bonnie Raitt, Linda Ronstadt, Warren Zevon, Etta James, Tom Petty, Aretha Franklin, the Byrds, B.B. King, Led Zeppelin and more. Savor the wine and spirits of Studio Winery’s vast collection while listening to Rebecca’s soaring vocals and Tyler’s searing guitar licks.

Next up: The Cheel

We’ll be playing our first gig at The Cheel, 105 S. Main St., Thiensville, on Oct. 3, and if weather permits we’ll be performing outdoors. So if you’ve been craving live music but have been wary of indoor gigs, join us for some outdoor fun. The Cheel features a unique menu of tasty dishes along with fine beverages served in an upscale atmosphere. Hope to see you there.

Two new gigs!

Alright! It’s been a while but we have two gigs this month, both as duos. Tyler and I will be playing from 5-9 on Friday, July 3rd at Studio Winery in Lake Geneva.

We are also excited to be playing in the beer garden at Kegel’s Inn from 5-8 on July 25th. We can’t wait to be out playing again. Come on out and support local businesses!

New Twitter account added

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!
