Matt Haeffel Band

Milwaukee, WI
From performance adjustments, to a heavy player rotation, Mathew Haeffel's dynamic presence is constantly in a fluid state of change, and evolving at a rapid pace. Hard to pigeon hole, Milwaukee's cultural newspaper, "The Shepherd Express" described Haeffel's original self penned sound as "Groove-oriented improvisational-minded folk rock with a smattering of world music flavors..." -Jamie Lee Rake (Shepherd Express June 8, 2008). Mathew's eclectic sound and professional drive has yielded many acolytes for him, since he began his career in 2002. Some of his achievements include nearly 900 shows performed across the Midwest in 60 different cities at over 200 different venues. Always humble on a personal level and extremely dedicated to the art of music, Haeffel plans to continue to do what he loves for years to come.

Although Mathew calls Milwaukee Wisconsin home, he performs throughout the region regularly. He has been fortunate enough to grace the stages of a variety of clubs, restaurants, colleges, festivals, and coffee houses throughout Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, and Minnesota.


In early 2010 Mathew released his first first full length LP, “Rhythm Ethics”. This album is by far Mathew’s best sounding to date, and continues to be well received by fans and critics a like. Recorded at United Technique Recording Studio in Chicago Illinois, it consists of top end recording techniques fused with quality studio guests including, the great twin cities based organist Ricky Peterson (John Mayer, Prince, Bonnie Raitt…) Milwaukee Wisconsin based bassist Matt Turner (BoDeans, De la Buena, Stealin’ Strings…), Milwaukee based bassist Larry Hubbard (Bass X), and Milwaukee based drummer Cody Calderon (Chinese Fingertrap, Herman Astro, etc.). The support from these quality musicians during the recording of “Rhythm Ethics”, reflects Mathew’s maturity as a performer, and respect other working musicians have for his sound.

Due in part to the success of "Rhythm Ethics" along with the collective support from his fans, Mathew has been working hard to put the finishing touches on a new single in 2011. Scheduled to be released in early fall, "Hey But A What A", will once again reflect Mathew's creativety and thirst to be innovative in the recording process. Recorded at Top Soil Studios in Oshkosh by Brian Koehler, "Hey But A What A" marks the first official time that he has recorded a song exclusively in the classic analog tape medium. Backing Haeffel up in prime style on this new song, are the great Milwaukee musicians Dan "Buddah" Budziszewski (Ian And The Dream, Shoeless Revolution...) on organ, rhodes piano, and backing vocals, and the late Milwaukee drummer Tim Reck (The Reck Room, The Crooked Keys, Micah Olsan And The Hype Machine...) on drums and backing vocals.

Always humble on a personal level and extremely driven professionally, Haeffel plans to continue to utilize all available avenues, as a means to do what he loves for years to come. In turn he plans to maintain his loyalty to the art of music, and
to encourage other musicians who encounter him to do so as well.

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.
