LIVE Music Line UP

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

Honest Monday – Spawned out of decades of numerous musical endeavors, HONEST MONDAY is a unique collaboration of singer-songwriters. Each member of the band truly brings his own musical flavor to the table while maintaining a simplistic approach to compliment the collective sound. HONEST MONDAY is loose with a sense of solidarity, fresh sound with an old soul. With a diverse diverse range of influences, the band seamlessly blends together to create a musically classic, yet raw original sound.

HONEST MONDAY performed at the JAZZ ESTATE in Milwaukee, WI every Monday night from 2008 to 2012, gaining a solid following of honestly good people who just want to enjoy some good, honest music.

Sexy Ester -Fronted by honey voiced Lyndsay Evans, who controls the stage like the Divas of old ( I’m talking Aretha not X-Tina ) and ably backed by Adam Edar on guitar, Jenna Joanis on drums, Brad Schubert on bass, and Roscoe Evans on keyboards, Sexy Ester is no flash in the pan.

They’ve already payed a lot of dues slugging it out in the smaller clubs and dives all over the Midwest. The new CD, “Monomania”, is fast becoming a staple of college radio and the venues are getting bigger and bigger – Sexy Ester is certainly going to have folks talking for a while – or at least until mullets come back into style!

Animal – A Tribute to Pearl Jam – Lead by Gregg “Cheech” Hall as Eddie Vedder, this ensemble including the members of Moon Boot Posse, pays homage to Pearl Jam’s greatest hits.
The Smokin’ Bandits – The Smokin’ Bandits have been a staple on a powerful Midwest music scene for a decade with their original, high-energy form of music dubbed “Grass n’ Roll.”  With an ever-growing, loyal, and dedicated fan-base along with a wide catalog of original material mixing influences ranging from Willie Nelson to The Allman Brothers Band, Leftover Salmon to Little Feat, the band brings a powerhouse performance each time they take the stage sure to make you move, shake, and promising for every show to be one of different form. Forming as a string band in La Crosse, WI in 2003, the Bandits electrified in 2004 to form a sound that is uniquely theirs but reaches to music lovers of all different genres and generations.Late Spring brought the return of their Bandit County Fair Music Festival held June 7-8, 2013 along the beautiful Mississippi River in De Soto, WI. Joining the Bandits at this year’s festival was once again some of the finest regional and national talent the Midwest has to offer including Reed Grimm & Shoeless Revolution, Fat Maw Rooney, God Johnson, Horseshoes & Hand Grenades, The People Brothers Band, Mark Joseph & the American Soul, TUGG, Evergreen Grass Band, Moon Boot Posse, SoapBox Project, Clovis Mann, and many more.

2013 marks the band’s 10th anniversary, and The Smokin’ Bandits continue to build steam with a revitalized line-up that welcomed Craig Baumann (Fat Maw Rooney & Honest Monday) to the group on guitar. The band is planning for a live album release sometime in 2013 and to be back in the studio this fall working on their next full-length studio album with producer Chad Staehly (Great American Taxi / Todd Snider).

The Smokin’ Bandits have shared the stage with the likes of Merle Haggard, Little Feat, Dr. John, Great American Taxi, ekoostik hookah, Jazz Mandolin Project, Dark Star Orchestra, Cornmeal, The Big Wu, Melvin Seals & JGB, Steve Kimock, Bill Miller, Trampled by Turtles, and Pear Near Sandstone amongst many more.
