May 10 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm


Buckle up for a great night featuring 2 virtuoso duos who each do a set, and end the evening doing something all together. Buy tickets following the bios.

 Glenn Asch & John Parrott / Mid-Century Pop, Western swing, Jazz and Rural Music + Originals (violin, guitar, vocals) will begin the show.

GLENN ASCH & JOHN PARROTT have been steady musical compatriots over the last 10 years. Anyone who has heard the Chris Hanson band knows about Glenn’s taste and virtuosity on the violin (and he literally wrote a book about jazz violin, titled “Deluxe Anthology of Jazz Violin Styles”) while John’s songwriting, vocals and his lively bounce on the acoustic archtop guitar in the rhythm section are hallmarks of that much-praised band. A long trail of credentials follows them both, from Glenn’s chair in the violin section of the Milwaukee Symphony, to John’s rhythm guitar adventures with renowned jazz mandolinists Jethro Burns and Don Stiernberg and local Milwaukee clarinet legend Chuck Hedges.

 Gaines & Wagoner / Original and Vintage Jazz, Blues & Americana (violin, cello, mandolin, lapsteel, ukulele, guitar and lots of vocals) will do the second set.

GAINES & WAGONER are the award-winning multi-instrumental husband/wife duo of Mary Gaines and Chris Wagoner based in Madison.  Co-founders of several popular Wisconsin-based bands over the past nearly 40 years: Harmonious Wail (vintage string jazz), Common Faces (folk-soul), The Moon Gypsies (Americana/Roots-Rock), The Bob Westfall Band (new acoustic), Graminy (class-grass) and The Stellanovas (vintage jazz and blues).  Wagoner was voted Violinist of the Award in the 2023 Wisconsin Area Music Awards and both are recent inductees into the Madison Area Music Awards Hall of Fame.  Innumerable local, regional, national and international album credits include Willy Porter, Freedy Johnston, Peter Mulvey, Carrie Newcomer (10 albums on Rounder Records), Tret Fure, and work with producer, Butch VIg on many indie and major-label projects including Smashing Pumpkins genre-defining 1991 Platinum album, “Gish”.
