The Brothers Quinn

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.

Palmyra-Eagle Community Band

Take a musical journey with the Palmyra Eagle Community Band for the 2018 summer “Pops” season and “Around the World in 80 Ways.” Hop into our musical travel balloon as we take audiences on a mystical, magical, musical journey from England to India to South America. Our band balloon will then bring us back to America where we will visit “The Big Apple” with a musical salute that runs from Central Park through Lincoln Center to the very streets of New York. Our journey will then take us to the very cradle of American Liberty: Philadelphia and Independence Hall where we will musically meet the people who crafted the Declaration of Independence! Special in-flight offerings will include the music of Henry Mancini, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Richard Rogers and Frank Sinatra. A tribute to the Centennial of the birth of the great American composer Leonard Bernstein will be a special highlight.

Bandmaster Ed Pierce will have his usual flight crew: Jim Neist and the “Kettle Moraine Blues,” sax soloist Ellie Hawes as well as the superb vocal artistry of Kim “Kimbirdlee” Fadner, who will ensure that each musical passenger is properly cared for with the finest music possible. Band dancers Josh & Caitlin Voigt will entertain one and all as they “cut a rug” with music from Dick Clark’s “American Bandstand!” It will be a journey you won’t forget! Pack your bag chair, bring a cooler and enjoy this musical “flight of fancy.” No boarding pass is required! (IT IS ALL FREE!)

“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.

Sound System Upgrade. It’s fantastic!!

We have upgraded the sound system for our shows. We acquired a state of the art digital system to enhance the experience at the bandshell.

This is a unique opportunity for a sponsor(s) to  have the naming rights for the sound system for a period of time to be discussed. Each performance, each notice sent out, each program guide, and each social media posting will include the named sound system for the sponsor.

This is a projected $25K expenditure that will give us and the sponsor a long term benefit.

Please contact us directly when you are interested.
