Willy Porter Quartet: Guitarist, singer and songwriter Willy Porter has been touring solo and with ensembles of different sizes and shapes for over 30 years now. His current quartet combines Porter’s acoustic and electric fret work with the dynamic drumming of longtime collaborator Dave Schoepke, songstress Carmen Nickerson on vocals and recent band addition Eric Madunic on Bass & vocals. Their live sound is a blend of grit, soul & space that moves seamlessly from folk & bluesy Americana to alt and progressive rock in service of Porter’s original tunes.

A largely self-taught musician, Porter began treating audiences to his brand of guitar playing and wry storytelling in the late ‘80’s while living in Madison, Wisconsin. In 1990, he released his first full-length independent album, The Trees Have Soul, and the touring life has flowed steadily ever since. Porter has literally logged millions of miles across America, Canada, the UK, and Europe, touring solo, as well as with various incarnations of the Willy Porter Band and in support of artists like Tori Amos, Paul Simon, Jethro Tull, Sting, and Jeff Beck.

Opening for Willy tonight: Sundae + Mr. Goessl are a Wisconsin-based duo that has been storming the country with their delightful brand of countrified jazz, melding the likability of Americana, pop and country music, and giving it a hybrid of jazz rhythms that will illuminate any music lovers hankering. Sundae + Mr. Goessl features award-winning vocalist, Kate Voss, and tireless virtuoso guitarist, Jason Goessl. This charming wife/husband duo has a style all their own and integrates humor, vintage style, interesting instrumentation, nostalgia and serious musicianship in their act. While it may be tricky to pin down a genre with these two, there’s one adjective that everyone can agree on: delightful.
