You may not have heard of Kurt Gunn; he’s far more interested in writing and performing music than promoting himself. But with five solo albums to his credit, and nominations for Singer Songwriter of the Year, and Male Vocalist of the Year by the Wisconsin Area Music Industry, Gunn’s fan base has grown steadily, as his talented guitar work, turned phrases, and unique, impassioned songwriting continually garner attention in Green Bay and beyond. Kurt tastefully appropriates whichever styles best accompany his story-songs, capturing crowds whether he’s leading a fluid cast of sympathetic musicians, or simply strumming and picking solo. Ultimately, Gunn’s ability to lend both gravity and levity to his work — sometimes within a single song — is what will stun his listeners for years to come.

For 15 years, Altered Five Blues Band has been winning audiences with a swaggering stomp of bruising, barrelhouse grit. According to Downbeat magazine, frontman Jeff Taylor “sings powerfully” and “Jeff Schroedl’s live-wire guitar reaches the high bar of mixed invention and fluidity.” Blues Bytes magazine declares the group features “the funkiest rhythm section outside of Memphis.”
For its fourth album, Charmed & Dangerous, the Milwaukee-based quintet joins forces with Blind Pig Records, one of the world’s premiere blues labels. Produced by multi-Grammy-winner Tom Hambridge, and featuring guests on harmonica and backing vocals, the 13 tracks of original, contemporary blues prove worthy of the recent groundswell of acclaim. The group’s third album, Cryin’ Mercy, reached #3 in the iTunes blues store, hit #1 on the Roots Music Report blues album chart, and won “Best Self-Released CD” at the 2015 International Blues Challenge. The band was also named “Blues Artist of the Year” at the 2014 WAMI Award Show, and was recently asked to contribute a track (“Tightrope”) to a Stevie Ray Vaughan tribute album being released in the fall of 2017.

I guess a good place to start is with the roots. Bluegrass music is where Donnie got his first taste of the limelight at a young and impressionable age. Playing music from Jimmy Martin, Bill Monroe to New Grass Revival and Tony Rice. After years of searching and playing different music clubs and festivals he discovered the raw primitiveness of the Blues and new immediately that he had found what he was searching for all along. Now after 30 plus years of delivering blistering blues licks and rich soulful vocals he is still kicking it up at clubs and festivals today and no plans on stopping any time soon.
Deep in South Central Kentucky authentic music is alive and well through native musicians who are still testifying to brothers and sisters all around the world. OTIS has taken in a steady diet of Roots, Blues, and Classic Rock and Roll, and created their own unique sound. OTIS draws from the raw electric sounds of Muddy Waters and stirs in a heavy influence of Southern sounds, courtesy of The Allman Brothers Band, Wet Willie, and more. This sums up what the sound of OTIS is musically and gives a glimpse into the sound and soul of the four-piece band.
The members of OTIS consist of Boone Froggett vocals/guitar, Steve Jewell guitar, John Seeley bass, and Andrew Gilpin drums. The members of OTIS share the same vision of writing and creating organic music while taking their audience to church by hitting on all emotions. If a stage filled with vintage music gear and Blues flavored Rock and Roll music is something you enjoy, then it’s time to drink from the healing waters of OTIS!
