The Raglanders
The Raglanders began as a one-time collaboration assembled to play a single five song set at a Neil Young tribute concert. Audience reaction and undeniable group chemistry demanded that it become more. In short order an expanding set list of original songs, Classic Country, Americana, Alt-Country and Good ‘ol Rock and Roll grew in depth and variety. Tight arrangements, group vocal hooks, instrumental prowess and flights of improvisation became the trademarks of a red hot Raglanders show.
Frontman Troy Heinz has been a fixture of the Green Bay music scene for over a decade as a solo artist and member of The Bar Tab Band and The Farm League. In the Spring of 2014 Troy approached local scene veterans Bonzai McPherson with the offer of a set at the second annual Neil Fest, held at Green Bay’s historic Riverside Ballroom. Armed with more experience than a Reno lot lizard, the four-piece Bonzai McPherson proved to be just the solid, edgy, tasteful backing group the rock and roll doctor ordered. Bonzai McPherson consists of (appearing alphabetically): Jerry Carstens (guitar, vocals), Andy Cismoski (bass, vocals), Chris Schoenecker (drums, vocals), and John Steuck (guitar, vocals).
In addition to the requisite Neil Young material, The Raglanders play rapid-fire sets packed with songs sure to appeal to fans of groups like: The Band, Little Feat, The Drive-By Truckers, Wilco, J.J. Cale and The Replacements.

Dana Erlandson
I am one blessed and lucky man !! I have opened for and in many cases played with: Jackson Browne, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, John Hiatt, America, Nanci Griffith, Jerry Jeff Walker, The BoDeans, Al Stewart, Stacey Earle & Mark Stuart, Steve Forbert, Melanie, Richie Furay, Leo Kottke, Todd Snider, David Lindley, Bill Monroe and His Bluegrass Boys, John Hartford, James McMurtry, John McEuen & Vassar Clements, The Nashville Bluegrass Band, Paul Thorn, Lucy Kaplansky, Brewer & Shipley, Kevin Montgomery, Greg Trooper and Pat MacDonald.. I have been an active member of the music scene in this part of the upper midwest that I call home, for more years than I should admit. I have loved it all. I have friends that I have made music with in GLASS, TWO WAY STREET, FORGIVEN, the GARAGE BAND, the DOWGS, and most recently..the ROCKETS, the MEGA-WATTS, and the Roy Orbison tribute "DREAM BAND" whom I truly love and respect. I have tried to keep my head straight and my feet on the ground. I have always kept my day job and the bills paid...... So in the words of John Prine (who is still number one on my WISH LIST of people to play with...waddya say Johnny?) How lucky can one man get!?

Mike Murphy & the MOB
A different shade of blues describes the creative and entertaining playing style of Midwest recording artist Michael “Big Dog” Murphy. His playing style is a more aggressive interpretation of the blues that is fueled by passion and guided by his heartfelt emotions. As he stays true to the feeling of the blues, Michael Murphy takes a different approach by delivering a mix of traditional with a twist for the unexpected. The Blues is a state of mind, and Michael Murphy’s state of mind is to take you for a memorable ride on the blues train that you will never forget...get your ticket and hold on for a wonderful experience that you will never forget!
The Men Of Blues, or MOB, for short, is a very aggressive blues band with a heavy rock influence. They offer many different styles of blues and older 60’s and 70’s classic and folk-rock tunes, all freshly interpreted with their own style! And Michael’s original tunes are so good, seldom do people recognize them as NOT being songs by otherwise famous artists. Although not really a dance club band, their sound and music are very danceable. And people like to dance to their music, but they seldom take their eyes off of the band. Many of today’s dance bands depend on not only talent, but also lighting gimmicks and other visual aids. The MOB, with the immense talent and member interaction on stage, do not rely on gimmicks! They are not “a copy band!” They don’t sound like anybody else! They are, simply put, the MOB!
