Where-ing Out

Oh where, oh where, is “the Big One’s” band?

It’s a more common question than you’d imagine, though not nearly so often posed as the myriad musings over the whereabouts of that monolith of musical mystique nonpareil himself, (Big) Wes Turner.

Call it hiatus or hibernation, Big Wes Turner’s Trio is scheduled not to see nightlight until April 28, appearing at that apex, that epitome, that Holy Grail of beer-drinking destinations, Tyranena Brewing in Lake Mills, Wisconsin (the Tyranena Tasting Room serves up good vibrations AND great libations). 7 to 10 pm.

But why wait that long? Call! Big Wes’s boys will get down with the sounds that move you. The price is reasonable, and therefore right. Pass the hat and don’t let the beer go flat.

Meanwhile, check out these approaching opportunities to soak in some lively LIVE MUSIC!!!
