It’s Pronounced New Awlins…

I am extremely excited to announce a Shrimp Boil at the historic Story Hill Firehouse featuring the J Ryan Trio this Friday Aug 16 (5:30-8:30pm). For tickets and details please see the link and info below. The Story Hill Firehouse is one of Milwaukee’s newest and finest venues for weddings, special events and live music.  Originally constructed in 1927, the now refurbished space retains many original architectural details while lending a thoroughly chic and modern scene to any event or evening. And the food? Magnifique!

In the spirit of any good New Orleans shrimp boil, we’ll ‘laissez les bon temps rouler’. That is: ‘Let the Good Times Roll’. The JRT will cover both the song and the sentiment.

Bugsy’s Backalley Speakeasy

(but enter via the alley off Chicago Ave)
Saturday Aug 17
9pm – 1am

But wait – there’s more: There’s Bugsy’s Backalley Speakeasy on Saturday Aug 17. Woohoo. We’ll play a perpetual plethora of poppin’ tunes while also including a copious compliment of camaraderie and comedy. Oh we can be pretty funny – although not always in a ‘ha ha’ way.

And all of the above after helping out friends in music at the State Fair. Indeed the photo below shows our very own Alissa wailing on a Janis Joplin tune while ensconced in the mighty tendrils of not 1, not 2, but count ’em 3 smoke machines. I think the vapor looked extremely cool under the lights, and helped Alissa develop an even smokier tone by the third set.
