The Brothers Quinn @ Phoenix Park Bandhsell

The Brothers Quinn is a four piece folk ensemble from southeastern Wisconsin fronted by WAMI award winning fiddle player Blaine McQuinn. The Brothers Quinn perform a variety of music including Irish, bluegrass, classic country, and blues; however, it’s not unusual to hear some Beatles or even Radiohead. Blaine is joined on stage by his brother Timothy McQuinn on drums, washboard, and vocals, Peyton Lencho on upright bass and Brian “Looper” Lucas on harmonica, guitar and vocals. Together, these boys bring a unique energy to familiar songs and even a few unfamiliar tunes. The Brothers Quinn have been winning over audiences for the past 2 years with their unique blend of music!

Blaine and Timothy, formerly of the Celtic-Punk band Whiskey of the Damned, have played a variety of venues including Summerfest’s Harley Davidson Stage opening for Dropkick Murphys, Irish Fest’s Celtic Rock Stage, and The Oshkosh Irish Fest. Blaine was the recipient of a Wisconsin Area Music Award for 2013 String Player of the Year.

“The Salute to Lady Liberty”

It began as a gift to Mrs. Lincoln. Today it is a background prop for selling car insurance. It’s meaning remains undiminished! The Statue of Liberty stands as “The lamp beside the Golden Door” as it welcomes all to “the last best hope on earth”! The generations that came through Ellis Island saw this marvelous edifice as their first glimpse of freedom! It is the enduring symbol of “We The People”!

In honor of our nations independence, we take a musical salute to Lady Liberty. Nearly every great American composer has honored her: Bernstein, Miranda, Williams, Rogers & Hammerstein and Sousa. A rich “red white and blue musical tapestry” of American Music will recount her timeless story.

A “Star Spangled” evening of patriotic joy awaits one and all. Bandmaster Ed Pierce promises to bring all of the musical talents of the Palmyra-Eagle Community Band to bear to bring to audiences a truly “Star Spangled Flag Waving Night”! On hand will be various instrumental soloists, our magnificent dance team, the superb “Kettle Moraine Blues” and the majestic vocal talents of our soloist in residence Kim “Kimbirdlee” Fadner.

Come one and all for an evening of music designed to move every American heart.

Mark & Gretch & Joe @ Phoenix Park Bandshell

With 20 CD’s currently in the marketplace, Mark & Gretch Hladish, with Jo Hodgins are known music professionals in the Walworth County area. Performing together as a vocal trio in a unique cabaret-styled musical experience since 2010, their music is the backbone of Rosewood in Delavan, Wisconsin entertaining theater goers from 7-10 states. Mark, the group’s producer, plays 17 different instruments, and has recorded every note of their repertoire spanning 1930’s to current day. This melding of incredible harmonies on such a wide variety of music is a crowd pleaser, every time.

In 2005, Mark and Gretch Hladish first blended their musical influences and talents, playing a mix of pop, classic rock and country. They were learning how to entertain together. Mark says, “now it seems so natural to arrange and produce music together – roles are more defined and we each do our part to build the performances and recordings.” Audiences knew them by name and it seemed pretentious to call themselves anything other than Mark & Gretch!

They have crafted a unique musical performance and one-of-a-kind audience experience. They have become skilled at creating amazing interactive performance soundtracks. These tracks allow the group to perform live vocals and play instruments accompanied by the sound of an entire backup band. They faithfully recreate the sound of the original hit recordings. Their versatile repertoire and extraordinary vocal style has become their trademark, performing over 200 shows each year.

Fresh Horses – Garth Brooks Tribute
Jul 4 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Fresh Horses - Garth Brooks Tribute

FaceBook

Fresh Horses, a high-energy show that features songs of Garth Brooks is the ultimate tribute to the country legend. Named from the 1995 album that featured ” The Change ” a song dedicated to families of the Oklahoma Bombing is a song that deeply impacted Smith. The band has received excellent reviews and developed a huge fan following. The lead singer of Fresh Horses Garth Brooks Tribute is Les Smith, who looks and sounds so much like Garth that many who have seen the show forget they are watching a tribute band. Les says he has heard about how much he looks like Garth for years, especially after he cut his hair and put on a cowboy hat when he began playing country music nearly 20 years ago. He began performing Garth’s songs casually with five other band members until he was approached by an agent who encouraged him to improve the act and take it on the road as a tribute to Garth.

They have performed throughout the United States and Canada ever since. Les says their particular fan base is smaller communities as they seem to have a “die-hard love of country music and Garth Brooks”. Fans can also expect to hear not only Garth’s most popular songs, but some that may be less recognizable as well. “Ive had the priviledge to sing music that has a meaning and message behind it, that’s a rare thing theses days..”

Coming from a heavy rock background Smith identified with the passion and live performance of Garth Brooks and admired his flame for bringing a new live sensation to country music.
