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!
Parkside 23 in Brookfield has invited us back to perform there from 6 to 9 p.m. Aug. 20. Sample the restaurant’s extensive menu of fine appetizers and entrees, then listen to three hours of music in a cozy setting, all done without a cover charge.
Thanks to the work of Enrique Rodriguez, we have some video of our performance in July at Bastille Days. To watch the video, go here.
Thanks to Major Goolsby’s and the Wisconsin State Fair for allowing us to perform at the Heartland Stage twice during the first weekend of the fair. The managers and wait staff were extremely accommodating, and Dominic Famularo did a superb job mixing the sound. Thanks also to all of our fans for supporting live music. To see a list of some of those who showed up, go to Facebook.
The weather forecast appears to be perfect this weekend for outdoor concerts, and we’re happy to cooperate with performances Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 3 and Aug. 4, at the Major Goolsby’s Heartland Stage at the Wisconsin State Fair. Our show on Aug. 3 will begin at noon and end at 3:30 p.m.; our Aug. 4 gig will begin at noon and end at 3 p.m. The Major Goolsby’s Heartland Stage offers plenty of seating in sun or shade, a large selection of great food and a variety of music that will suit anyone’s taste.
We have a late-breaking gig Tuesday, July 30, at Parkside 23 in Brookfield. First chord will be struck at 6 p.m., and we’ll be there until 9. We’ll be performing inside the plush confines of this upscale venue, but it also should be a great night for relaxing on the outdoor patio between sets. It will be a busy week for us, with shows this Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 3 and 4 beginning at noon each day, at the Major Goolsby’s Heartland Stage at the Wisconsin State Fair.
If you order one of the bountiful fish fries featured this Friday night, July 19, at Tally’s Tap & Eatery on Summit Ave. on Waukesha’s south side, we’ll order up a tasty selection of original music along with compositions from Bonnie Raitt, Ann Peebles, Linda Ronstadt, Feist, B.B. King, Led Zeppelin, the Allman Brothers and more. First chord will be struck at 8:30 p.m., and the last chord will be hit at 12:30 a.m. Be there or be square.
Fresh off a successful performance at Summerfest, we will be storming the Madison Medical Affiliates Beaux Arts Stage from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Friday, July 12, to perform original Americana music from its first two albums along with songs from artists such as Bonnie Raitt, Linda Ronstadt, Ann Peebles, Norah Jones, Etta James, Led Zeppelin, the Byrds and more. Feast on the fabulous food at Bastille Days while listening to Rebecca’s soaring vocals and her father’s shredding guitar work. We are very grateful for being invited back to Bastille Days for the fifth time. The venue is perfect for our music, and the crowd is among the largest we draw.
