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.

An Evening Under the Stars With the Stars

Come to a good old fashioned band concert with the Palmyra-Eagle Community Band.

Our evening of concert classics’ will range from Mozart to Hank Williams; from Vivaldi to Elvis and Sinatra!

Add a dash of John Philip Sousa and James Bond and you have a relaxing evening of music for the whole family!

An additional feature will be the toe tapping sounds of our own “Kettle Moraine Blues” who will fill the air with enough notes to calm every mosquito around!

Bring your picnic blanket, lawn chair or just sit on the grass, you will be rewarded with a fun filled program that will take you back to the time of Old Time Delavan.

It will be a great family friendly way to kick off your July 4th fun! See you there!https://pecb.info/

Current Projects:

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.
