The Furious Bongos are a Zappa project featuring musicians who have played alongside heavyweights like Yo Yo Ma, Mick Fleetwood, and Les Paul.
This isn’t strictly a “tribute” band – doing a note-for-note rendition of Song X from Album Y while staring at their shoes didn’t seem like the proper way to go about it. The result is a show that pays respect to Zappa’s legacy but is still new and different and dangerous, with lots of eyebrows.
Kinda like Frank.
Add extra fun to your Sunday Funday as Andrea von Kampen & Auralai will be performing live at Gibson Music Hall on July 28th, at 3:00 PM. Doors at 2pm with mimosas and bloody marys a-plenty!
Andrea von Kampen is an independent folk singer-songwriter based in Lincoln, Nebraska, whose effortless vocal delivery has been praised by Hear Nebraska as “soulful and worn-in.” With the successful release of two EP’s, Another Day (2015) and Desdemona (2016), a Christmas EP (2016), an Audiotree Live album (2017), and her debut full-length album Old Country (2019), Andrea has quickly established herself in the recording studio and on the road. She has shared the stage with artists such as Tall Heights, Ira Wolf, Dead Man Winter, The Brother Brothers, Dead Horses, Darling West and many more.
Old Country, Andrea von Kampen’s debut full-length album, was released on February 8th, 2019. The album was recorded and mastered in Nebraska and features exclusively Nebraska-based musicians. Inspiration for Andrea’s songs often come from literature, art, and nature; in particular the literature and nature of Nebraska and the Midwest. The title track, Old Country, is based on the book “My Ántonia” by Nebraska author Willa Cather.
Her single, Portland, received notable attention including features on The Bluegrass Situation, Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon Music. Additionally, Amazon Music Canada featured Portland in their ‘Top Songs of 2018’ playlist. In a review of Portland, Ear To The Ground Music said, “It’s not so much about where you’re going, but that you want to get away. That emotion of “idealistic escapism” is one that listeners can all connect with, whether or not we want to go to Oregon or somewhere else. The inflection in von Kampen’s vocal has the conviction of a gospel track and the sincerity of a Dylan folk ballad.”
$10 at the door. Doors 7pm. First come, first serve!

After the release of their first two EPs, Ephrem Pts. 1 & 2, Nick Anderson & The Skinny Lovers (NASL) partnered with Tinderbox Music in Minneapolis, MN. Their first radio promo landed them a number 1 chart position in Florida, and a number 8 position in North Carolina.
With the newly found radio audience, these songs and their deep emotional context made them a perfect fit for TV Networks like MTV, E!TV, NETFLIX. These networks, along with 10+ more, licensed NASL’s debut EPs.
These licenses opened many doors and ears of industry professionals. Phil Ehart of KANSAS even called NASL’s song 24 ‘The Anthem of a Generation.’ and the band secured an opening spot with former BoDeans frontman Sam Llanas. In 2018 NASL hit the road to play Red Gorilla Music Festival in Austin, TX during SXSW. They sold out prominent live music venue Handlebar. Later that year, they played Summerfest’s Emerging Artist Series which boasts alumni such as WALK THE MOON, Maren Morris, and X Ambassadors.
Nick Anderson & The Skinny Lovers released their debut full length album Ephrem (Pts. 1-3) to a sold out hometown crowd in 2019. As the shows get bigger, and the fans get more attached, this band shows no signs of slowing down.
Friday blues music!
We’ll all be warmed up from Summerfest and ready to roll at this state of the art music venue in downtown Appleton, WI!
