SWAY WILD – CANCELLED
December 4, 2021 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$20
So sad this show has been CANCELLED. Somewhere down the line COVID has struck again and Dave and Mandy have had to cancel this tour.
ATTENTION: The Delta variant has us once again rethinking how to safely do our business. The CDC recommends that vaccinated Americans return to wearing masks in indoor spaces in communities where coronavirus transmission is substantial or high, and Jefferson county, Wisconsin, is currently in the substantial category https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#county-view, so we’ll do our part. Keep checking for updates, as circumstances can change.
The small space of the listening room prevents any reasonable distancing. For the safety of everyone we will be requiring:
- proof of vaccination or a recent negative Covid test
- mask wearing in the listening room, (and recommending it in all of our spaces when not eating or drinking.)
SWAY WILD– Internationally acclaimed indie folk-rock duo Mandy Fer and Dave McGraw (from San Juan Islands, WA) are back at it with a new sound, and a new name: Sway Wild! Their exceptional vocal harmonies, coupled with Fer’s pioneering electric guitar work, have become a vehicle to carry them around the world, sharing stages with the likes of Iron & Wine, Lake Street Dive, Gregory Alan Isakov, and Mandolin Orange. Sway Wild’s infectious sound explores the corners of rock, pop, funk, prog, worldbeat, and folk, but at its nucleus it is undeniably a music full of joy. It can squeeze the heart in your chest, it can draw tears from your eyes, and it can force you to get up and move your body; over and over, it somehow manages to do all three at once. Mandy Fer also tours as the lead guitarist for Allison Russell and recently performed with Brandi Carlile and Jason Isbell.
“Grooving…wistful, driving, and a masterful combination…velvety vocals over staccato guitar and light percussion capture your attention with Sway Wild.”
“…high energy (and) soulful… Like The Wood Brothers and Lake Street Dive, Sway Wild hones a universal
likeability where uptempo anthems and melodic precision prevail. Fer is an impressive…[and] masterful guitarist…”
