We are filling up our Summer 2024 calendar quickly! This will be our 32nd year of performing together! Hard to believe it's been so long! Looking forward to playing at many of our favorite haunts: Bents Camp in Land O Lakes, Eagle waters Resort in Eagle River, The Pines Restaurant & Beer Garden in Mercer, the Pirates Hideaway in Eagle River, just to name a few. We anticipate playing at many of the community music venues, as well; Land O Lakes Car Park series, Three Lakes Concert in the Park, and St Germain Concert Crawl are all on the calendar so far.
For those of you who don't want to wait until May or June to hear one of our shows, Bret will be performing at Big Powderhorn Ski Resort in Bessemer, MI every Friday and Saturday through the winter ski season, from 3-6pm. Frisk will occasionally join him.
As we continue into our thirty-second year of performing together, it is extremely heartwarming to have made so many special friends through our travels and performances. As we reflect over the years, we realize how special you all are and that is what keeps us going! A special thanks to all of you who have supported us over the years. We are very blessed to have such special people in our lives!
