Description

The story goes that The Big Wu, bound for rock stardom, sold their souls for a case of Old Style beer one thirsty night long ago. The legend and the band live on. Still rocking their powerful, moving, and energizing original music for the fans. A jam band with a unique style and presence, the Wu combine strong, free flowing improv and vocal harmonies, with finely crafted songs for all tastes. Oh, and their fans are famously friendly.

      CANCELED - Frogleg's 5th Annual Black Friday Family Gathering
      $15/10
    • Description
      Frogleg - Black Friday - 11/27/20 - #HookStream Frogleg is an island breeze, a highway cruise with the windows down, a mountainside ramble, a New Orleans night out. Their music is steeped in sounds and lyricism of improvisational rock and roll, reggae, soul, carribean jazz, bluegrass, americana, and folk, among others - if it must be contained to a category, World music suits it best. Chalked full of impressive songwriting ability and instrumental virtuosity, and with two released full-length studio albums, a live album and another studio in the chute, this 6-piece ensemble of artistry has nowhere to go but up.

      Sarah Morris & The Sometimes Elves 
      $10/15
    • Description
      Sarah Morris Holiday Show - 12/04 - HookStream Sarah Morris has a habit of missing the forest. From the day the Minneapolis based singer-songwriter picked up a guitar, armed with the bone-deep memory of her parents’ well-loved record collection and rooted in the storytelling fire of a Mary Chapin Carpenter tune, she’s been too busy crafting love letters to the details of the trees. Sarah’s endearingly honest, expertly penned songs encourage audiences to pull away from the big picture and get caught up in the magic of our everyday minutia, the rainy day ache in her sunlit voice granting us permission to escape into stories at once hauntingly familiar and uniquely her own.
