13 years ago, the band Sly Chef & the Vegetables played their first show at Water City Grill in Oshkosh, WI. Coincidentally, this was also the last performance by the Vegetables. But the trio that came together to make music that night immediately carried on with a new moniker, The Operators. The Operators evolved into the Smooth Operators and the rest is history.

The trio that started it all, the nucleus, the molten core, the Mother Brain of this operation, has remained firm all the while. Tonight, come join the original trio (Joe Slyzelia, Mike Underwood, David Jerabek) for our debut performance at a pretty sweetastic new music venue!
Caley Conway takes the stage in candy apple red with Pat Keen, slinging a matching telecaster and a new set of rules for the singer/songwriter paradigm. Rooted in folk but hardly bound to it, her inventive style ranges from jazz to post-rock, hints at the familiar, and embraces a dissonant beauty. The Milwaukee native’s breezy voice and disarming wit belie a deep complexity that has earned her praise as “the next big thing in folk music” by No Depression Magazine. Paste Magazine praised her 2016 full-length Silk for Life as “an ambitious piece that puts Conway on the map.” 2018 saw her sharing stages with the likes of Phoebe Bridgers, Julien Baker, Joan Shelley and more. Equally enthralling as a solo performer or a full band with backup singers, Conway leaves rooms hushed; her audiences somewhere between chilled and chuckling.


The Blues Howlers are returning to Gibson Music Hall!  Come out and help us pack the place! Blues, Swing and Boogie all Night Long!!!!

“Big” Al delivers an authentic, polished blues sound. Hailed by Milwaukee Blues Legends as the one of the greatest young Blues artists out there. Harmonica legend Jim Liban says “We need more REAL Blues harmonica and guitar players like him”.

$5 entry. First come, first served at the door.

The 80’s brought in an era of music that was fresh, fun and exciting. Bands at that time didn’t take themselves so seriously. They played for the pure joy of that new, fresh energetic sound.

Few bands captured that moment in time better than the East Side Kids. Known for their live shows, the Appleton based East Side Kids combined original material and cutting edge music from little known power pop bands to present a show of raw energy.

East Side Kids opened for national and MTV bands The Romantics, The Producers, The Greg Kihn Band and the BoDeans, to name just a few.

The band will reunite for the first time in over 26 years on May 4, 2019 for a one night only event at Gibson Music Hall.

This is an event for fans, friends and anyone who loves the sound of the 80’s.

–This is the 1st time we have tried something like this. Our 1st set will be unplugged(acoustic) starting at 8 P.M. at the front bar stage. 2nd set will be an electric heater starting at 9:30 on the main stage.

–This is our 1st time at Gibson. If you have never been there, this venue is easily one of the best venues in the state. It has perfect sound. Classy yet rock ‘n roll swag atmosphere. Cool bartenders. And best yet, we decided to have no cover charge at the door for the night.

–We really need your help with advertising for this one, so we have decided to give away 25 of our acoustic CD’s to the 1st 25 people who come through the door that have “shared’ this event with their friends. So just “share” this event and come early. We will be sure to have the grooviest mix playing beforehand over the house speakers.  Doors open at 5pm.



The solo venture of Cody James is the culmination of over 20 years of playing guitar, most of which were spent with various rock and punk groups around his native area of Oshkosh, WI.
James’ passion for music has brought him to a new musical chapter in going solo, where he trudges forward, relentlessly chasing musical freedom.

The New Outfit hails from Green Bay and are bringing you fresh vibes and tasty tunes in good ol’ Wisco fashion!

-BLACKFOOT GYPSIES – As a band, they have unleashed a set of original roadhouse rockin’ tunes with “To the Top” on Plowboy Records. The Nashville, Tennessee based powerhouse quartet demonstrate raucous energy and soul on this collection delivering their take on white-knuckled rock’n’roll.

-SMOKING FLOWERS – Musically speaking, Kim dances between drums, accordion, acoustic guitar, mandolin, harmonica, shimmering tambourine and her own sensual, simmering vocals. Scott plays electric and acoustic guitar, harmonica, and delivers his vocals with the voice of a feisty, gin-battered, heart-on-sleeve, hardscrabble troubadour. They have influences that range from Led Zeppelin to Gillian Welch and The Ramones to Neil Young. Kim healed cancer using holistic and alternative methods and a raw food diet (no chemotherapy, no radiation, no hormones). The Smoking Flowers 2018 album “Let’s Die Together” was inspired by these events. They remain activists and advocates for holistic and alternative medicine.

-DR. KICKBUTT’S ORCHESTRA OF DEATH – Eclectic jug band extraordinaire. Cross between Frank Zappa and the Muppets.
