Shows and Shows, and more shows…

 

So the band participated in the Gafton Blues Challenge April 16th, we didn’t place at all but we had fun and met some great people! Kris and Peter from the Grafton Blues society were great to us. Despite some technical issues with gear, we made it through our set and moved on to Milwaukee…where the following night we attended the WAMI awards in which we were nominated for best blues band and for the People’s choice. We didn’t walk away with a win this year but were still psyched to be nominated and once again got to mingle with many great bands and meet some amazing people!

We will be back at Summerfest in Milwaukee,WI this July 5th on the Briggs & Stratton stage, so mark your calendars for that one; it should be a great show. Headlining that stage later in the evening will be Legendary Reggae band “The Wailers” who became one of the biggest reggae band names ever backing The god father of the genre…….Bob Marley.

The really big news is that Rhinelander,WI will be the host of a fantastic Rock show that is almost too damn good to be true.
