December 31, 2021 | Daly's Bar & Grill, Sun Prairie, WI
It was quite an energetic crowd for this New Year's Eve celebration! Anna and Dawn joined Amy with harmonies on a number songs, we celebrated Brianna's birthday, everyone seemed to thoroughly enjoy the dessert challenge, and we had a champagne toast and balloon drop at midnight--all great fun! Special thanks to Steve, Sarah, Shasta, and all the crew for creating a great year-ending event. Happy New Year!
December 11, 2021 | O'Riley & Conway's, Janesville, WI
What a fun evening at O'Riley & Conway's--we even had dancers! Things got a little wild and crazy as we all joined in celebrating Audrey's special milestone--Happy Birthday!
October 16, 2021 | Fall Festival, Sun Prairie, WI
We're always thrilled to play at special events in our own community, and this was a great day for Sun Prairie! It was a gorgeous fall day--appropriately cool and breezy but full of sunshine--with leaves turning color and falling all around us (and all over us!). We had kids playing games, downtown shoppers stopping by, and lots of folks out just relaxing and enjoying the music and the sunshine. So good to see people out in force supporting our community.
October 10, 2021 | Private Party, Deerfield, WI
We were so excited to be back visiting The Roost! The barn loft was full of energy, dancing, and friends enjoying time together. Special thanks again to Mary and Jim for hosting their friend and inviting us to share a great afternoon with them. Hoping to be back in the spring...
October 9, 2021 | Oakstone, Cottage Grove, WI
We had a great time on the patio at Oakstone, enjoying the opportunity to join in celebrating both a retirement and a birthday! We had a few dancers out, including a young man who may be our youngest dancer ever! Amy enjoyed having Dawn add her harmonies on several songs, and Jerry broke a string on both guitars (a first)--all in all, a very special evening! Thanks again to Tim, Jenn, Josh, and all the crew for being exceptional hosts. We're hoping to be back for some fundays over the coming cold months...
October 8, 2021 | O'Riley & Conway's Irish Pub, Janesville, WI
Our first time playing in Janesville, and what a beautiful and historic venue! Joe's great-grandfather opened the original tavern the day after Prohibition ended in 1933, and ever since it's been a gathering place for great food and beverages. Joe remodel the interior in 2009 and rebrand as an Irish pub, including new woodwork and gorgeous inlaid floor. (We played on top of that intricate Celtic design!) We had a great time, Anna joined Amy once again for "Chain of Fools," and we hope to be back many times over the coming cold months.
September 18, 2021 | Waltonfest, Walton, IL
Now this was special. We played at this wonderful community event (first time playing in Illinois) just miles from where Jerry grew up--and in the field where he played Little League Baseball as a kid! How's that for an amazing full circle! Jerry is quite a celebrity around Walton, and we were all greeted with wonderful hometown hospitality. We're hoping to come back next summer...
September 14, 2021 | East Side Club, Monona, WI
We're always happy to connect with the Skilaufers at the East Side Club--dancers light up any room! The club has struggled with all the restrictions over the past year, but they elected a new board and are hoping to maintain forward momentum. Unfortunately, they voted to suspend monthly dances for the season. If you're interested in dancing, please connect with the club and make your interest known--they're always looking for new members! (No photographer on duty this night!)
September 11, 2021 | Buck & Honey's, Monona, WI
It was another gorgeous evening on the Yahara River at B&H's Monona as the end of summer approaches quickly. We really enjoyed interacting with all the guests in this intimate space on the second-level deck--be sure to come out and join us next season!
August 21, 2021 | Potosi Brewing Co., Potosi, WI
Another "last" for summer 2021--our last visit of the season to one of the most beautiful outdoor stages in Wisconsin. It was a special night, and special thanks to all the hard-working staff at Potosi Brewing Company for another special summer season.
August 17, 2021 | Clearview, Juneau, WI
It's always a special privilege to play for the residents at Clearview. We really missed our visit last summer, with the facility in seclusion--which made the "Welcome Back" poster extra special! See you all again next summer.
August 14, 2021 | Pooley's, Madison, WI
We always enjoy spending the evening at Pooley's, and we're always a little sad when it's our last visit of the summer. We had another great time, with lots of dancers to raise the energy level. And we're always glad to have Dawn join us on stage with some extra harmonies. Special thanks to Peter, Monica, Michael, and all the staff for their hospitality and support all summer. Already looking forward to next year...
July 22, 2021 | Buck & Honey's, Waunakee, WI
After a rain cancellation here earlier in the summer, we finally had a gorgeous night on the patio at B&H's newest location in Waunakee. We were happy to have Dawn add her harmonies on several songs, and we took the opportunity to celebrate Matthew's and Anna's birthdays with one of Amy's famous carrot cakes. And yes, Amy and Dawn did take a good amount of time to relax in the Adirondack chairs around the firepit after we finished performing--and what a beautiful night! (Jerry and Jim made it over there for a few minutes after loading out all the equipment...)
July 17, 2021 | Arts Festival, Lake Mills, WI
Our second time playing at the Arts Fest (the festival was cancelled for summer 2020)--and what a blast! The community was out in force, and we had a great audience of listeners for our entire performance. And we finished just in time to take a stroll around the block to visit all the amazing artists--what creativity is so many forms. We're already booked for next year--mark you calendar for July 16, 2022!
July 10, 2021 | Buck & Honey's, Sun Prairie, WI
It's always fun to be back in our hometown, and this establishment is where the band grew up more than a decade ago. It was a beautiful evening, the crowd was interactive and energized, and Amy and Dawn had fun sharing harmonies once more. Another thank you to Buck & Honey's for their continuing support of live music.
July 9, 2021 | Pooley's, Madison, WI
Dancers, perfect weather, beautiful sunset, dancers, Dawn adding her harmonies, the passing aromas of hot fish fry, dancers--another great night on the patio at Pooley's! (That "passing aromas" part was a little tough for us to take as we could only watch it all going by.) One more date on the calendar next month--don't miss it! (Summer is already half over--then comes that season after Road Construction...)
July 4, 2021 | Lake of the Woods, Wautoma, WI
We're still not accustomed to the campground "golf-cart box seats," so it was nice to see a few more people actually sit nearby and enjoy the gorgeous evening. Another beautiful Wisconsin sunset in the big outdoors--and what a great place to spend the holiday weekend! (Already half-way through summer?!!)
July 2, 2021 | Lone Girl Brewing Co., Waunakee, WI
It had been a few years since we played on this beautiful rooftop--and what a gorgeous evening it turned out to be! A great view of the sunset, lots of smiling faces, some very enjoyable brews, and even dancers bringing some extra energy. Amy's "up close and personal" serenade may have surprised the host a bit, but he recovered quickly and took it in stride! We had a great time and look forward to visiting again in September.
June 20, 2021 | Private party, Deerfield, WI
What a beautiful space for a gathering of friends who just want to enjoy each other...and to dance! We were excited to experience so much energy all in one (very large!) room. Special thanks to Mary and Jim for creating The Roost to share with their friends and for inviting us to share it with them. We look forward to visiting again soon.
June 19, 2021 | Strawberry Fest, Sun Prairie, WI
We were honored to play for this great event in out own community again this year. So good to see so many smiling faces out enjoying a beautiful day in Sun Prairie! Everything strawberries--lots of yum! (And again we see Dawn joining us for some added harmonies...)
June 12, 2021 | Buck & Honey's, Monona, WI
Back on the Yahara River on a beautiful Wisconsin summer evening--wow! It was great to see so many folks--including all the drop-in boaters--out enjoying friends on the patio. A "Discover Wisconsin" video crew was roaming the grounds for an episode on B&H's--let us know if you spot us in the background!
June 10, 2021 | Gazebo Musikk, Stoughton, WI
We were excited to be part of this great summer music series in the beautiful community of Stougton--and what a great turnout on this 95+-degree day! OK, almost everyone went for the shade, which was a long way off when we started, but we understood the attraction because we were in the full sun, with our evaporative cooling (i.e., sweat glands) working overtime! No matter, we had a wonderful time and were happy to interact with a great crowd of listners. Definitely hoping to come back next summer...
June 5, 2021 | Pooley's, Madison, WI
We always love our visits to the beautiful patio at Pooley's, and this one was extra special because we had dancers out all evening! It was also pretty special to have Dawn and Anna join Amy for "Chain of Fools"--a real crowd-pleaser. Special thanks to Peter, Monica, Michael, and all the staff for their continuing support of live music in Madison.
June 4, 2021 | Private party, Sun Prairie, WI
Our first time out after a long, lonely winter... It all started 16 months ago when we were purchased at auction to support Shelter from the Storm Ministries. After a year's postponement, we finally had the honor of playing for the year+year-end party celebrating the staff of Patrick March Middle School. A great time had by all (many thanks to Renee S. and family)!
October 24, 2020 | Daly's Bar & Grill, Sun Prairie, WI
Yes, we set a new record low temperature (38 deg) for playing outdoors, but what a great afternoon! The (sometimes smoky) firepits and sunshine made it pleasant enough, and all for a good cause--supporting the Sun Prairie American Legion and VFW in honor of Curt Johnson (Commander, Legion Post 333). We were honored to be a part of it.
September 26, 2020 | Buck & Honey's, Monona, WI
Our first time playing on the patio at B&H's Monona. It was a beautiful fall evening on the Yahara River--likely one of our last outings before all the patios close for the "stay at home" winter lockdown. Stay well, all, and we hope to see you in the spring of a brand new year.
September 20, 2020 | Private Party, Cottage Grove, WI
People just need to dance! Thank you, Becky and Jerry, for hosting us and your dancing friends for a great afternoon in your beautiful backyard. It gives hope for more good times to come...
September 19, 2020 | Private Party, The Tinsmith, Madison, WI
Congratulations, Katie and Michael! What a great time celebrating with family and friends at a beautiful new venue in downtown Madison. We learned a few great new songs ("The Best," "Baby Baby," and "Wavelength") especially for the event--already added to our setlist.
August 29, 2020 | Potosi Brewing Co., Potosi, WI
Back on the most beautiful outdoor stage in Wisconsin--always a treat! Add lots of dancers, some great brews, and that beautiful night sky and words just can't do it justice. Already looking forward to next summer.
August 15, 2020 | Nau-Ti-Gal, Madison, WI
We always enjoy our visits to the backyard at Nau-Ti-Gal--but some dancers and that amazing sunset made it a very special night! After this crazy summer, we're looking forward to another visit in a more predictable(?) 2021...
August 14, 2020 | Pooley's, Madison, WI
Another beautiful sunset and perfect weather for an evening on the patio at Pooley's. And what an amazing evening it was--the patio was full of energy and people were ready to dance! Great fun for us. Dawn and Anna brought an extra dose of energy joining Amy once more for "Chain"--we're anxious to hear the harmonies for those other tunes they have in mind... Thanks again to Peter, Monica, Michael, and all the staff for their hard work and encouragement in keeping live music alive in Madison.
August 8, 2020 | Buck & Honey's, Sun Prairie, WI
Another beautiful Wisconsin sunset on the patio at B&H's, with a few extra treats: dancers (a welcome sight on this patio!), Anna and Dawn up for "Chain," and a special dance to "Come Away with Me" for Joe and Kaitlyn--Happy 11th Anniversary!
July 18, 2020 | Private Party, Waunakee, WI
We've really enjoyed these parties in Dennis & Mary's backyard! What a beautiful setting and fun way to spend an evening, with dancing in the grass! Amy was happy to take it even a step further with some polka in the grass--and no injuries! (Some may not realize that we play some polka--make a request if you have some extra energy to burn!)
July 17, 2020 | Pooley's, Madison, WI
Another great evening and beautiful sunset on the patio at Pooley's--it was so encouraging to see a patio full of people enjoying a "normal" night out. And it was especially great to see some dancers--and Amy was sure to take her turn out there, too. And we always love to have Dawn join us for "Chain of Fools"! (Rumor has it that Dawn and Anna have a new list of more songs for some harmonies--something to look forward too...) Summer is getting shorter, with just one more visit on the calendar--don't miss it.
July 11, 2020 | Buck & Honey's, Sun Prairie, WI
We enjoyed another beautiful sunset on the patio at B&H's. The appropriately "distanced" patio was full all evening--great to have so many people hanging out with us the entire time! We were excited to have young Adeline(sp?) up dancing with us for several songs, and she was brave enough to join us on tambourine for our version of "Fire"--great job! Summer is short--be sure to watch the calendar for more patio dates coming soon...
June 28, 2020 | Private Party, Waunakee, WI
Very special thanks to Mary and Dennis for hosting this intimate backyard party for some friends who just wanted to get outside, listen to some music, and dance! And what a gorgeous setting! Great idea, Mary and Dennis--anyone else?!
June 27, 2020 | Lake of the Woods, Wautoma, WI
A picturesque campground in the woods on a beautiful summer evening--not a bad place to hang out and play some tunes! We're still not accustomed to the campground tradition of listening to live music from your golf cart (seems like the dancing could get dangerous!)--maybe someone can enlighten us on that one... Great to have Dan with us again on drums--special thanks for steady heartbeat!
June 19, 2020 | Pooley's, Madison, WI
We always have a great time on the patio at Pooley's, and this first visit of the summer was extra special. The patio was packed (but appropriately "socially distanced," of course), and the energy level was amazing! Dancing, toe tapping, clapping, singing along--that all makes it especially fun for us. We were excited to have Dan sitting in with us on drums once more, and we were glad to welcome Dawn and Anna for the inevitable "Chain of Fools" collaboration--all great stuff! Special thanks to Peter and Sarah for their continued beautification of the patio--it looks fantastic! Looking forward to our next visit...
May 30, 2020 | Boston's, Waunakee, WI
Our first time at Boston's and our first time out since the world shut down many weeks ago. And what a great time sharing our freedom from hibernation with real people! We had amazing patio weather, a great crowd, and a beautiful new setting for live music in Waunakee. Special thanks to Derrek and Kelcey, Patrick, and all the staff for a great afternoon. And it was extra fun for us to have old, old (but young) friend Dan G. sit in with us on drums--thanks for the heartbeat, Dan! Hoping to be back at Boston's again very soon.
March 1, 2020 | Oakstone, Cottage Grove, WI
Our first time at Oakstone, on their first-ever Sunday Funday and meat raffle--and what a blast! We enjoyed playing for a full house and feeling lots of energy in this new recreational/culinary must-visit destination. It was a special treat to have Dawn and Anna join Amy once more for an incomparable rendition of "Chain of Fools." Special thanks to Tim, Jenn, Josh, and all the crew for pulling it all together. We're anxious to be back again soon.
February 9, 2020 | Hearts for the Homeless, Sun Prairie, WI
We were honored to once again be a part of this special event supporting Shelter from the Storm, a very special resource for families in our community. And not only did we have the honor of performing for the event, we were part of a live-auction party package that raised an extra $1500 for the cause! We had great fun, and we're looking forward to performing at the party in June.
February 2, 2020 | Daly's Bar & Grill, Sun Prairie, WI
Another great Sunday Funday at Daly's! Lots of winners in the meat raffle, lots of energy in the room, and we were honored to have Dawn and Lnz sit in on vocals for a couple songs. (They have a future duet in the works...) Thanks again to Steve and all the staff for the great food (stawberry stuffed French toast was amazing!!) and the great time--we always enjoy our visits to Daly's.
January 4, 2020 | Buck & Honey's, Sun Prairie, WI
We had great fun back in the lounge at B&H's--what a great crowd! Looking forward to our next visit--be sure to watch the schedule and don't miss it!
