First-call drummer Tony Wagner hosts an every-other Wednesday gathering of various Wisconsin musical stars and stalwarts. Show up for the first show of the season, November 8, and find out what happens when you throw together Tony and wizened Big Wes Turner’s bass player Tom McCarty with blues guitar threat Alex Wilson (see pic) and saxophone dynamo Stephen Cooper (of WiFEE and the HUZzBAND). Music from 7:30 to 10 pm.
The very next night (on Friday, November 17) Faux Fawn ventures up to Driftless Books in Viroqua to open up for Society of Broken Souls. The slightly scaled back version of the band will barely miss missing bassist Tom who will be stuck back in Madison getting all bluesy with Chicago’s own Cash Box Kings as they raise the roof at The Knuckle Down Saloon. 9 pm to close.
Not long after the stuffing has settled and the last turkey sandwich has been mayonaissed (sic?), Big Wes Turner’s Trio will be giving thanks that number-one guitar player Gary Hendrickson is back and grooving with the band at Cash’s Old Smokey in Monroe, Wisconsin. That’s Friday, December 1. 8 to 11 pm.
Check back soon for the full December calendar of McMusical events.
