About the Event

$12 admission

Chris Haise Band - (indie folk rock from Milwaukee) Mixing Folk and Rock, Haise’s vocals have been described as Dylan meets Springsteen meets Petty, while his lyrics have been described as “smart new songwriting” and “Intense, Thoughtful Songcraft”.

Sam Ness - From theater performer, to full-time busker and wanderer, festivals and cafes, Sam Ness has shared the stage with America, Styx, Night Ranger, Chris Barron (Spin Doctors), and many others. Mixing Traditional Folk/Americana roots with a new-age Alternative Singer/Songwriter feel, Sam Ness finds inspiration in the ancient cobblestone streets across the globe. Sometimes wild and dance oriented, other moments raw, emotional, and punctuated by moments of silence, Sam’s show changes every night. His percussive playing paired with an assortment of special effects including a loop system, have built a sound larger than most full bands. Sam has taken home a handful of Madison (Wisconsin) Area Music Awards. ��Sam’s new album, City Lights and Smoke, is a story of the road. It’s the story of an introvert playing over a thousand shows across many countries, traveling to explore not only external places but the internal self. It’s sticking out your thumb in hope, it’s fumbling for a light switch in the dark. It’s the story of looking back at one’s self across the stage lights, back alley puddles, and rear view mirrors. It’s repair shop coffee. It’s City Lights and Smoke.

"Sam Ness is taking the Madison music scene by storm. His rugged charm coupled with immense talent have made him a stellar act to watch" -On Wisconsin Radio

“A Midwestern Boy with Worldly Vision, Sam Ness is a breath of fresh air on the local music scene. With a personable approach to how he projects every song he performs, Sam seamlessly mixes his own tunes with familiar songs to create one of the best music experiences Wisconsin has to offer. “ -WXPR Public Radio
