Billy Bronsted and the Loot are a predominately hard-playing, big-sounded duo from Wisconsin’s Northwoods. Billy and his percussionist, John Kneipp were both born and raised in Tomahawk, Wi, where their love for music was definitely thought of as unique. Tomahawk is a place full of grounded, family oriented, peaceful, hardworking people. Strong values were instilled, shaping the way they walk through their lives. Their peaceful upbringing has played a major hand in their sound; as story-telling and writing is second nature to them. The duo’s rythmic sound of the drum mixed with Bronsted’s plucking puts the listener in a feel-good vibe. Listening to their albums, you almost feel as if you’ve been pulled into the woods around a campfire and you’re listening to their stories set to music.
The duo first came together musically in 2008. Billy Bronsted and John Kneipp made their first series of demos with friends. Shortly after, with John on a 3 year hiatus from music, Billy found himself working on multiple musical projects. During this time, he worked on building his talents and reputation in close collaboration with David Blessent, with whom he founded projects such as Linus and the Lute and One Strong Army.
Since John’s return to music, John and Billy have been hard at work creating their next evolution as performing artists, Billy Bronsted & The Loot.
The Loot often consists of just Billy and John but the boys have been known to collaborate with several Wisconsin artists while they continue to expand their sound.
The Madtown Mannish Boys are a Madison-based Blues band who are steeped in Chicago-style Blues, including artists like Muddy Waters, Junior Wells, Otis Spann, Paul Butterfield, and Little Walter. They perform with raw exuberance and driving rhythms that make you want to boogie. Some of their tunes are harmonica-driven, played with gritty fervor and intense energy. Others are soulful ballads, heavily influenced by the likes of Otis Redding and Sam Cooke. This mix of styles and genres makes for an entertaining and dynamic show that you won’t want to miss.
