5:30 PM - Jealous Brother - Jealous Brother is an alternative americana band based in Rochester, MN, and draws from influences such as The Jayhawks, Wilco, Tom Petty, Neil Young and Dolly Parton. Their self-titled debut album, released in December of 2020, features renowned drummer Noah Levy (Honeydogs, Brian Setzer, Golden Smog), and their follow up, “Back in Session” was released in May of 2021.Their original music is inspired by odd and tragic news stories, current events, and unique life experiences. They bring audiences and listeners a combination of lyrical twists, vocal harmony and instrumental flourishes.
6:30 PM - Jeramiah Nelson - "Jeremiah Nelson is an exciting part of a vanguard of independent singer songwriter producers who have adopted Wisconsin as home over the last several years. Some of Jeremiah’s latest work, such as “Drugs to Make You Sober” represents a shift in his sound from haunting folk pop to an evocative rock fusion, creating a catchy, hook-laden soundscape. Jeremiah’s music indicates that he likes to linger beyond the outside limits of experimentation, driving transformation and cutting edge music. Melded with his ever hypnotic voice, Nelson delivers you directly into the inside moments of his ever evolving music, as demonstrated on Wisconsin Public Television’s 30 minute music hour": - Andy Moore, Wisconsin Public Television
