The Science Project brings the Christmas Splendor to Gibson with a night long event of mystery and wonder!
With over 15 years’ experience performing, “the Science Project” is hard to pin a genre label on, and is poised to take on the notion that direction be solely based on popular trends. One part Prog-Rock, one part disco, a dash of reggae, and a whole lot of weird only scratches the surface of what the group is capable of, their debut album is being recorded right now, and they are already releasing new numbers at their high energy live shows which have helped the band gain respect of their musical peers in such short period. Songwriting was an interest of front man William Baxter from a young age, listening to polka and country western tunes as well as 50’s standards on a mono AM radio was his introduction to the music world, and the storytelling of those songs was a heavy influence on his writing and song selection. Now, almost 20 years later, he is building on past musical experiences to set out on a unique adventure to change the perspective of potential listeners, pushing the boundaries of what music is. Having just hit 40k plays on Soundcloud and with the release of their sophomore effort 3T taking the listener through hard edged dance tunes all the way to 1970’s themed rockers the band is poised to breakout into the national scene in the very near future…
Gibson Music Hall Presents:

$5.00 cover at the door
4:30 Doors, The Jimmy’s start at 8:00pm
The Jimmys have been ripping up stages with their blend of blues, soul, funk and R&B for nearly 10 years. Award-winning keyboardist/singer/songwriter Jimmy Voegeli has put together an all-star lineup: Perry Weber, veteran blues guitarist/singer/songwriter; Mauro Magellan, of the Georgia Satellites; John Wartenweiler with his powerful bass lines and deep groove; the Amateur Horn Stars – Pete Ross, Saxophone; and Mike Boman, trumpet – combine 40+ years’ experience touring the world with Clyde Stubblefield, the Glenn Miller Orchestra, Youngblood Brass Band, B.B. King and his All Stars, and many others.
Paul Filipowicz, Chicago born Lockport, IL raised (singer, songwriter, guitarist, harmonica). Over the 30+ years fronting his own band, he has played venues from the mid-west to Denver to stints in Texas and Mississippi. Some of his fondest memories are the shows with “Hound Dog Taylor” and “Mighty Joe Young”. Luther Allison was a great friend of his who once told Paul “I know you’re a bluesman and you know you’re a bluesman and every time you take the stage you got to prove it!” Come watch him prove it at Gibson Music Hall!
Just in case you haven’t heard of Kurt Gunn yet; he’s far more interested in writing and performing music than promoting himself. But with four 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.
Jeff Johnston (guitar) formed The Swingin’ Johnsons in 1999, performing at clubs and festivals in Northeast WI. The band once opened up for Joe Bonamassa and his band at Mill Creek Bar in Appleton. The Swingin’ Johnsons play a variety of genres; from gritty Blues, to R&B, and more! WAMI-nominated vocalist Erin Krebs fronts the band with power and soul, and the chemistry between Erin & Jeff is undeniable! Jeff and Erin surround themselves with impeccable musicians, and when joined with Jeff’s soulful and polished guitar playing make an marvelous musical experience that is unrivaled! Musicians that often work with Swingin’ Johnsons include: bassists Justin Zopel, Andrew Mertens, and Drew Hicks; Brian Gruselle on keys; and drummers James LeFevre, Mike Malone, Mike Underwood, and Matthew Rhyner.
“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”.
IT’S HERE! Teaming up with local musicians The Peguero Sisters, Andrew Bader, James LeFevre, and Timothy Dorsey, our album “REFLECTIONS” will be performed LIVE at Gibson Music Hall! Bring your self and other people because this party will be HOPPIN 😀
MaR’s style can be described as a fusion of tastes between the Latin-folk-gospel roots of Rissel (vocalist and pianist) and funk-r&b-jazz of Matt (guitarist). Combining their different backgrounds, a novel and personal touch is put into each tune performed and written.
Jim, Joe and Tony (rhythm section for “Otis & the Alligators”) decided to keep the core band together after Otis retired. With Charlie on bass they merge blues, R&B, and funk creating their own Funky-Americana style.
GFTS (Good for the Soul) is a duo from Green Bay, Wisconsin comprised of musicians John Warpinski and Cassandra Kremer.
