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!

Maxwell Jones and Keith Farnum
It is true that Max Jones and Keith Farnum are not the prettiest musicians you will ever see. However, what they lack in visual appeal they make up for with emotion and guts; both of which spill out freely during their blues and classic rock duo show. Armed with guitar and bass, Max and Keith will Robert Johnson and Jimi Hendrix and everything in between; all of your favorites, including songs that you were not aware were your favorites until you heard them done by Max and Keith. Your search for soulful, dirty blues and rock ends here.

Matt Haeffel Trio

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 receive
d 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.

Nick Foytik
Hailing from the pines of Northern Wisconsin, Nick began playing guitar at 15. From early on, his songs have shown a connection to the blues, soul, and rock n’ roll. Now, with more than 20 years of experience, Nick continues to work as a guitar for hire, but spends most of his time getting his own music heard. As his solo act moves around the Midwest growing momentum, he also focuses on the Nick Foytik Band, catching the ears of their audiences anywhere they go. Whether you’re seeing Nick solo or with his band, you’re always in for a unique and quality performance.

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, 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!?

David Deon and the Soul Inperations
Combining hot Southern Soul, jazz harmony and latin rhythms, David Deon &
The Soul Inspirations aim at the heart and mind. With performances that
range from a romantic croon to bluesy wail to the sanctified holler, The
Soul Inspirations aren't just another R&B band. Their debut release, "Let It
Go", evokes the slick funk of Chic, the sophisticated pop-jazz of Steely
Dan, and the searing, "I'm still standing" testifying of Harold Melvin & The
Blue Notes.

The product of David and Matthew Nelson's (The Dorothy Heralds, Josh Harty,
Lis Harvey) 20 year bond of brotherhood, The Soul Inspirations' mix early,
bare-knuckled Soul with Steely Dan-like arrangements and the straight up,
crowd pleasing interplay and dynamics of a well-travelled R&B band.

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…)
