June Sounds at Sandy Knoll
Thursday, June 30
The Happy Schnapps Combo
In 1988, the late Jim “Bruiser” Krueger, known internationally for his masterpiece, “We Just Disagree”, had become fed up with the LA lifestyle. He decided to move back to his hometown, Manitowoc, Wisconsin. Jim soon realized that Manitowoc, with its Polish; Czech; German and Bohemian ancestry needed a sound all its own. Something that was unique to its people. Something that went great with beer! The answer? POLKA!… So it was… the Happy Schnapps Combo was born!
Polka Joe of Polka Fusion
A high energy polka band with Polish & honky style attitude. Instruments include trumpet, concertina, keyboard, fiddle, accordion, bass guitar, & drums.
July Sounds at Sandy Knoll
Thursday, July 14
Gin Mill Hollow
Nearing eight years and five-hundred shows together, the ever-evolving Americana outfit Gin Mill Hollow has been showcasing their unique approach to string-band music throughout the midwest and beyond.
Pay the Devil
Forged in the middle of a cold Wisconsin winter Pay The Devil plays an eclectic mix of original, bluegrass, folk, Irish, Americana, obscure, and outlaw country tunes. Foot-stomping, thigh-slapping music, and enough hollering to go around.
Thursday, July 28
Mixing Traditional Folk/Americana roots with a New-Age Alternative Singer/Songwriter feel, Sam Ness finds inspiration in the ancient cobblestone streets across the globe. Sometimes wild and dance oriented, other moments raw, emotional, and filled with moments of silence, Sam’s show changes every night. His percussive playing paired with an assortment of special effects including a loop system, have built a sound larger than most full bands.
Andrew David Weber
Andrew David Weber is a multi-instrumentalist living in South-Eastern Wisconsin. Though most of his works feature him on all instruments and lead vocals, he is a known collaborator, as is seen on his brand new release: “Sound of Dwelling.” Weber is also known for his work with award winning Celtic rockers, Whiskey of the Damned
