Marcya Daneille and her band will present “All Hail the Queen of Soul! A Tribute to Aretha Franklin.” It will be a journey through the Queen’s songbook. The group will perform Aretha’s classic Soul tunes, as well as tunes from her Jazz repertoire . Expect the vibe to be soulful and the arrangements as diverse as the Queen herself!

Join us for a small-scale concert featuring Avec le Bois Woodwind Quintet, following Sunday’s Packer game.
Avec le Bois Woodwind Quintet formed in December 2011. The wind quintet is comprised of five musically accomplished young women, and is based in the Milwaukee area. Avec le Bois plays primarily classical music, which is well-suited for wedding ceremonies and other special events such as gallery openings and private parties. www.aveclebois.com
Drinks will be available for purchase at the brewery. Look for one to be named after the quintet, served as a special that day!
This afternoon will feature soloists Scott Lowery on guitar, and Eric Langford on mandolin.
We will be at the Lakeshore Bluff Amphitheatre (bring chairs) area unless the temperatures that day are under 60 degrees; in that case we will be inside at the school’s chapel.
Scott Lowery recently moved to Wauwatosa from SE Minnesota, where he’s been performing hillbilly heirloom classics, pan-fried blues, and organic originals for the past 20 years. Scott enjoys playing outdoors at farmer’s markets, pizza nights and backyard barbecues, and will plan to bring along extra implements of percussion, in case anyone wants to sit in with him. He’s a charter member of the Beef Slough Boys, Turkey Creek and Northern Shoveler, with tracks available online from all of these groups. He plays six- and twelve-string guitar, harmonica, kazoo, tin whistle, and washboard.
Eric Langford of Waukesha plays mandolin in the bluegrass tradition: old tunes fused with elements of jazz, blues, and swing; moods ranging from haunting melodies to upbeat stomps. Eric was a member of the award-winning Liberty Bluegrass Band and has performed with several groups in the area.
