It’s that time of year and we’re off again to one of our favorite festival gigs: Steel Bridge!
This year Victor Delorenzo, famed drummer from the Violent Femmes, will be joining the band as the 7th member for both of their sets on Sat June 9th! There will be a whole lot of rhythm going on!
The band’s First set will be on the Main Stage during the day, then join them for a late night show at Kitty O’Riley’s
The festival runs from June 7-10 and we’ll be playing the main stage on Saturday June 9 during the day and taking part in the pub crawl event that evening. Musicians take over every venue in Sturgeon Bay (even the bowling alley!) and your festival ticket allows you entry to every location.

100’s of musicians invade a tiny town for four days, playing all the coffee shops and bars, forming groups, writing songs, creating new genres, drinking to excess, tea-totaling, escaping careerist fears, breaking resolutions, starting anew… all in front of an audience of thousands who’ve come from everywhere to enjoy the beauty of this man-made island and its picturesque mainland shore, and the amazing sounds bounding through every doorway, carried on bay breezes and streaming podcasts out into the waiting, waking world…
