John Stano is an award winning singer songwriter and performer of Americana, Blues, Folk and Contemporary Acoustic music. John performs regularly throughout the area. 

The trademark of singer/songwriter John Stano’s sound is a distinctive blend of acoustic and slide guitar, harmonica and expressive vocals developed over many years of performance and study.  He sometimes adds a little mandolin, cigar box guitar or banjo to the mix as well.  His style can be described as a combination of folk, blues and Americana.  Initially self-taught, John went on to study American fingerstyle guitar at the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music and harmonica with national blues legend, Jim Liban.  ‘Sing Out’ compared John’s music to early Bob Dylan while ‘Dirty Linen’ was reminded of Country Joe McDonald.  John studied English and creative writing at U.W. Madison.  A skillful use of language adds an original spark to his lyrics.  John also performs his own arrangements of folk and country blues classics by artists such as Robert Johnson and Mississippi John Hurt and Bukka White and contemporary writers such as; John Prine, Bob Dylan, Greg Brown, Leo Kottke, Gillian Welch and Tom Waits. John is a flexible and engaging performer who works regularly at a variety of indoor and outdoor venues.  John has received numerous arts grants to present blues history, harmonica, ukulele and song writing classes in the Milwaukee Public Schools and public and private colleges such as Waukesha County Technical College and Mount Mary University.  He also teaches guitar, harmonica, banjo and other acoustic instruments privately.

Wattle and Daub

Wattle and Daub


When Wattle & Daub come to the stage, their genuine affection and humor are infectious. It's probably why, when they first started making music together in 2013, audiences thought they were married. Now that they are, singer/songwriters Tim and Susan Mocarski continue to get listeners involved in their songs. Whether it's Susan rolling her eyes at one of Tim's awkward chord changes or their knowing glances at each other during a love song, their goal is get their listeners involved in the music, and yes, that often means a hearty invitation to sing along with them.


Their first album, "Struggles and Love," was named among the top albums of 2017 by WICN Radio's "The Folk Revival."


"Wattle & Daub ... comes armed with a brace of bold, inventive, sometimes highly personal originals and choice covers that are equal part spirited and gritty, poignant and tender." -- Scott Engstrom, President of the Lake County Folk Club.


“I think that ‘Luckiest One’ is a perfect example of how things come out when you honor your own individuality. It’s really a special song that everyone in the world should get to hear.” -- Corky Siegel, Siegel Schwall Blues Band and Chamber Blues

LOLO and Garrison Starr “Tennessee Queens Tour”

LOLO and Garrison Starr “Tennessee Queens Tour”

$12.00

LOLO-
From Jackson, TN, LOLO is a show-stopping singer who has
"so much music flowing through [her] that it fills two
people" (Associated Press). She has proven herself a venerable
songwriter, from penning hits for Panic! At The Disco’s recent
#1 blockbuster album to writing a New York Times raved about
off-Broadway musical, “Songbird” — a perfect segue from

LOLO's past role as the originator of Ilse in the critically-
acclaimed smash musical “Spring Awakening.” Her album, In

Loving Memory of When I Gave a Shit, is a come-to-Jesus
moment for the songstress who moved back to Tennessee after
exploring her path on the stages of New York and time in
London - a literal reflection of LOLO's journey on the road back
home, which paints the picture of a woman who is finally able to
shine and be her true self. With a daring and emotionally
charged voice, her music evokes a hot southern night – rough
around the edges but with a velvety quality that soothes the soul.






 

Garrison Starr-
Garrison Starr is a singer, songwriter and record producer based in Los Angeles.  Her latest musical release, "What If There Is No Destination" was released June 2017.  Starr has released 15 albums as a solo artist.

Known for her vibrant and impassioned live performances, Starr’s shows have been described as “marrying pop smarts and Americana grit with a voice of remarkable power and clarity”(gomemphis.com 2012).

Starr is a full time songwriter in Los Angeles whose songs have been featured on numerous TV shows and commercials. She regularly collaborates with various artists on projects and has found great success writing for TV and film.

In 2016, Starr collaborated with long time friend, Margaret Cho, and produced “American Myth.” Starr also co-wrote, played guitar and sang on the record. The album was nominated for a Grammy in the Comedy category.

Garrison's love for truth-telling, good whiskey and human connection has made her a darling of the singer-songwriter world.
