Mike Murphy and 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!

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.

Max Jones
One day in middle school I wrote a song that I thought was funny and asked my father to teach me how to play a couple of chords so I could perform it. That year music hit me like an infectious disease that has not desisted in all this time. For the first couple years of my musical upbringing I only listened to blues and was dragged into other several other genres shortly thereafter. Some of my biggest influences who I feel have really affected the way I sound are Tom Waits, Marc Ribot, John Hammond Jr., Mark Knopfler, Grant Green, Bill Frisell, and countless classic bluesmen.
I have been playing guitar since I was in middle school, and have studied guitar diligently since then. I’ve been giving lessons and playing publically since my sophomore year in high school, and have been playing and giving lessons for a living since 2008. I learned by ear initially and then took advanced music theory courses in high school, therefore I value all approaches to learning music. I have been playing and teaching professionally since 2010 in a wide variety of
circumstances. I have played mellow instrumental jazz in the corner while rich people ate and I've busted strings covering Hendrix while energetic inebriates hooted in bars that smelled like urine. I am comfortable in just about any scenario and practiced in many different styles of music.

Donnie Pick and the Road Band
I guess a good place to start is with the roots. Bluegrass music is where Donnie got his first taste of the limelight at a young and impressionable age. Playing music from Jimmy Martin, Bill Monroe to New Grass Revival and Tony Rice. After years of searching and playing different music clubs and festivals he discovered the raw primitiveness of the Blues and new immediately that he had found what he was searching for all along. Now after 30 plus years of delivering blistering blues licks and rich soulful vocals he is still kicking it up at clubs and festivals today and no plans on stopping any time soon. The debut album "Guitar Slinger" was a success for a freshman attempt and the follow up album will be filled with even more surprises.

Buck Johnson and the Plumbers
There’s no one named Buck in the band, and none of them are plumbers. Just three old friends playing a whole bunch of their favorite tunes. Cuda on acoustic guitar, Carl on the bass with a hole, and Jason on the GuiTurk™, a hand-built guitar-based drum emulator. Old blues, classic rock and roll, country, lengthy Crazy Horse-style jams, and a handful of originals make up their set. But please don’t ask for ‘Mustang Sally’. (It makes Carl cranky…)

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, Tanya Tucker, David Bromberg, Al Stewart, Stacey Earle & Mark Stuart, Jack Ingram, 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!?
