Hey all, this weekend we have three great shows lined up. Come hang out and hear some unforgettable music!
Thursday: Greg Koch Trio w/ Clovis Mann
(in Der Rath due to inclement weather)
Greg Koch Myspace
Since winning a guitar contest judged by Buddy Guy in 1989, Greg Koch has been astounding crowds in his unique manner. A Milwaukee standby for years Greg writes a column in Guitar Edge Magazine, had his own limited edition run of Telecasters and Stratocasters made, releases instructional DVDs, and regularly puts on clinics for Fender. The bands newest album, From the Attic, was released on May 5; the band is just finishing up a short European tour before returning home to Wisconsin. Roscoe Beck, the multiple Grammy award-winning producer and bassist for the likes of Leonard Cohen, Eric Johnson and The Dixie Chicks, will join Greg on stage for what is sure to be a rockin’ night on the Terrace.
Friday: These United States w/ Strand of Oaks and Juniper Tar
These United States with Juniper Tar and Strand of Oaks will be putting on a show you don’t want to miss! These United States Hailing from Washington, D.C. and Lexington, KY has played more than 500 shows across the United States (including a packed show last fall in Der Rath), United Kingdom, and northern Europe. They have also appeared at the South by Southwest and CMJ Music Marathon festivals in the U.S., and the UK’s Glastonbury Festival. WUD Music is thrilled to welcome them back for what’s sure to be another fantastic show! Juniper Tar is a 5 piece indie folk-rock band from Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Saturday: Colin Gilmore
with Kevin Flynn & the Avondale Ramblers and Flame Shark
Austin singer-songwriter Colin Gilmore describes his music as a blend of “West Texas-style rock, with a country/punk/psychedelic/pop edge.” “We’re a Chicago-Irish band,” says Kevin Flynn to describe the Celtic inspired The Avondale Ramblers. Though the band’s sound is steeped in the influence of traditional Irish music, their songs are anything but traditional. Flame Shark is a Chicago-based rock-n-roll, soul and Americana band.
