An Evening with Dawes

An Evening with Dawes

It’s been nearly a decade since Dawes first emerged from Southern California, carrying with them a roots-rock sound that nodded to the past – including the West Coast folksingers and cosmic country-rockers who chased a similar muse during the 1970s – while still pushing forward.

Over the years that followed their North Hills debut, the band evolved and electrified. Once known for their honest approach to classic sounds, Dawes grew into something different: a forward-thinking, boundary-pushing band for the 21st century, willing to follow inspiration wherever it leads.

Schedule: VIP Dinner: 6:00pm | Doors Open: 7:00pm | Performance Begins: 8:00pm

We Banjo 3

One of the best live acts to come out of Ireland in recent years is the multi-awarded winning We Banjo 3. With a 7 time all Ireland banjo champ, a 4 time banjo champ, and another member who is an all Ireland champ on both fiddle and Bodhran, and with a passionate lead vocalist like a young Springsteen adopted by the Chieftans, the result is truly unforgettable. On both sides of the Atlantic the word is out about this group.

Schedule: Doors Open - 7:00pm | Performance Begins - 8:00pm

Field Report

Field Report

Field Report will grab you by the short hairs and make you see yourself. It will get you close enough to smell your salt and you’ll know immediately that it’s your salt, your grime -- the detritus of you. You’ll get up to that mirror and you’ll feel your breath bouncing back, hot and present, slapping you invisibly, eerily with real texture and a physicality, like it could push you back a couple inches with the next attack. You’ll recognize it and this time, you can dance and thrash through it to get out to the other end. There’s a voyeur in our midst, but they’re performance notes, constructive and hopeful, as if there’s an eye toward the remake or the redo. 

 Peaked your interest?

Marc Cohn

Marc Cohn

After winning a Grammy for his soulful ballad “Walking in Memphis,” Marc Cohn solidified his place as one of this generation’s most compelling singer-songwriters, combining the precision of a brilliant tunesmith with the passion of a great soul man. Rooted in the rich ground of American rhythm and blues, soul and gospel and possessed of a deft storyteller’s pen, he weaves vivid, detailed, often drawn-from-life tales that evoke some of our most universal human feelings: love, hope, faith, joy, heartbreak.

Since then, Marc has released multiple albums, and continues to do what he does best: infuse American music with both a fresh perspective and a reverence for its deep roots.

Mike Mains and the Branches with Motherfolk

Join us for a night filled with talent. Opening the night is Benjamin Scully, a local talent from the Fox Cities!

Motherfolk takes the stage - In a contemporary independent music scene inundated with up and coming bands, it takes a unique outfit to break through that noise. A truly exceptional group must exhibit authenticity, raw talent, and electrifying chemistry.

Finally, Mike Mains & The Branches carries us through the night. Based in Michigan, this indie rock band consists of Mike and Shannon Mains. They first made their way into the national spotlight after the release of their debut album, Home, in 2010. The band's music is most readily identified by their use of pop melodies in contrast with singer Mains' often aggressive vocal style.

Schedule: Doors Open: 7:00pm | Opener Benjamin Scully: 7:30pm

Motherfolk: 8:00pm | Mike Mains & The Branches: 8:45pm
