Nikki Hill
Feb 15 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Those who have seen Carolina girl Nikki Hill sing agree—this isn’t just another newcomer on the scene, this is a ‘whiplash’ moment.
 
With a no-filter energy, and explosive live show, she delivers a sound that will make you believe in rock ‘n’ roll again! Nikki’s unique voice with raw rock and soul dynamics mixed with the strength, passion, and honesty of blues shouters of the past, steers the driving guitar and a tight rhythm section, to create a breath of fresh air with their fast forward approach to American roots music.
 
Her enthusiasm for music is simply contagious! One club advertisement called Nikki “The Southern Fireball”, “the New Soul Sensation”, “amazing R&B Shouter”, and even “the new Queen of Rock n’ Roll”.
 
If you haven’t heard of her yet, prepare for your ‘whiplash moment’—you have been warned.

Sonora Winds
Mar 22 @ 2:00 pm – 3:15 pm

***This concert has been POSTPONED*** We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you for understanding.

 

Sonora Winds is a Twin Cities-based woodwind group that performs actively and enjoys playing rarely-performed music for winds.

They formed in 2016 with the goal of bringing accessible, lesser-known music to audiences through transformative performance experiences. Sonora Winds wants their patrons to discover and re-discover works that are worth hearing, but got lost in the midst of standardized performance programs. The group embarked on a recording project supported in part by grants from the Polish American Institute of Minnesota, and the Twin Cities Polish Festival to bring to the forefront lesser-known and some never recorded chamber music by Polish composers. The project brought three different instrument combinations onto one recording. The CD has been released this fall 2019 by MSR Classics Discover label. Following the recording, the group concentrated on programming in different venues across Minnesota and Wisconsin. Recently, Sonora was a recipient of a Travel Grant from University of Minnesota to tour Texas. At the same time, the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council supported Sonora’s community engagement efforts through Arts Project Support Grant to create a chamber concert series in retirement communities across St. Paul. Sonora Winds have been invited to perform at Chamber Music America’s Conference 2020 in NYC.

Listening Party & The Oxleys

***This concert has been POSTPONED*** We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you for understanding.
Two performances in ONE night! Listening Party will perform from 7 – 7:45 pm. The Oxleys perform at 8 pm!
Listening Party, a 2018 Wisconsin Area Music Industry (WAMI) nominee for Bluegrass/Americana, have found a place in the original music scene around the Midwest with their soulful stage presence and infectious melodies. The trio out of Milwaukee, WI present a fresh brand of Americana music that feeds from folk, classic rock, soul and bluegrass. Singer-songwriter Weston Mueller, a Northern Wisconsin native, leads the group with “every note full of expression and feeling” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel). Complemented by multi-instrumentalists, Joshua Hester and Jacob Wood, each song paints a portrait of the groups varying musical backgrounds.
The Oxleys: Hailing from the lakeside city of Milwaukee, WI, The Oxleys formed in 2016 and have since left their footprints over much of Wisconsin. Fueled by their passion for performing and storytelling, The Oxleys are currently touring the Midwest full-time sharing their experience through their songs. The acoustic duo digs into their roots and breaks into the genres of Country and Americana.

Aaron Williams and the Hoodoo
Jul 30 @ 7:00 pm

Enjoy music, drinks, and have fun with friends! The street is closed in front of THELMA on Sheboygan St.

Don’t miss this THELMA favorite! Formed as a trio in May of 2008, Aaron Williams (Vocals, Guitar), Eric Shackelford (Drums, Vocals) and Z (Bass, Vocals) have the blues deeply rooted in the music they love to play.

Their music is unwavering, filtering blues, soul, roots, and rock through a prism of emotional authenticity. What emerges isn’t a reinvention of the wheel, rather something undeniable, and the very definition of a force of nature. It’s real American music at its core and at its best.
