Event Description


Rising from the forests and rivers of central Wisconsin, Armchair Boogie's high-energy take on the Jamgrass genre fuses intricate arrangements of acoustic guitar and banjo with the funky back beats of electric bass and drums.


Augie Dougherty (banjo, vocals) and Ben Majeska (guitar, vocals) started playing together in the fall of 2014 while attending the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point and within a year their musical collaborations led to the formation of Armchair Boogie. Eager to expand their sound for a bigger stage, Augie and Ben recruited bassist Eli Frieders and drummer Dan Waterman to fill out the band's four-piece configuration.


Armchair Boogie solidified their current line-up in the spring of 2017 when Denzel Connor took over for a departing Dan Waterman on drums. In conjunction with the release of their debut, self-titled album, the band moved to Madison, WI, a jumping off point from where Armchair Boogie has become a regular on the upper Midwest festival circuit while also sowing roots in the Rocky Mountains.





 


Originally hailing out of Madison, Wisconsin, The People Brothers Band (PBB) are a staple of the Midwest’s vibrant music scene. Featuring some of the best vocalists and musicians in the region, the PBB have blossomed into a unique brand of Rhythm and Soul dedicated to uplifting the hearts and minds of its friends and fans. The PBB’s core mission is to bring people together by spreading love through music. Coupled with their energetic live shows and infectious stage presence, they are guaranteed to bring the party.


The PBB have been honored to win several awards from the Madison Area Music Association (Latin Song of the Year 2018, Pop/R&B Artist of the Year 2017, Pop/R&B Album of the Year 2015, Blues Album of the Year 2013, Blues Song of the Year 2013), Madison Magazine (Soul/Hip-Hop Artist of the Year 2018), and Wisconsin Area Music Industry (R&B/Soul Artist of the Year 2014). The PBB believes in supporting the community that allows them to thrive. The band is proud to host the annual Charity Jamboree that has helped raise over $100,000 for National Multiple Sclerosis Society, UW Carbone Cancer Center, and American Diabetes Association.


The PBB have also opened Driftless Music Gardens in the beautiful rolling hills of Yuba, Wisconsin, where they host the annual Bonfire Music & Arts Festival and People Fest.
