… and Saturday Feb 4 is going to be stellar ! Man oh man the magic last night was undeniable. Mal-O-Dua played a super heartfelt set – thank you Chris Ruppenthal, Chris Wagoner, Mary Gaines and Sedrick. Alfonso Ponticelli, John Bany and Tim Mulvenna were spot on and once again brought a standing O and a really warm encore. Harmonious Wail played the last set – special guest appearances by Gonzalo Bergara and Chris Wagoner.
On to Saturday – There are handful of tickets available – Brown Paper Tickets have ended so it’s walk up sales – Get there early and you will most likely get a seat. I’d say b4 7 should do it.
Milwaukee Hot Club with Harmonious Wail past guitarist Guy Fiorentini heats it up at 7:30 – Gonzalo Bergara, Ivan Pena and John Christensen take the stage at 8:45 ish ad Harmonious Wail will bring it all home at 10 (ish) — every body jumps up at the close of the night for a rousing tune — Minor Swing?? Dark Eyes ?? one never knows until it happens.
