“Warm blend of Appalachian music and Mid-Western Folk Roots” Nikki Grossman, guitar, fiddle and vocals and Joe Hart, guitar, mandolin and vocals, have built a growing audience, throughout the Midwest, of fans who appreciate their lighthearted performances. This night they will be playing with Liz Draper on bass (Okee Dokee Brothers and Davina and the Vagabonds) and Chris Hepola on drums (Cactus Blossoms.)
Their original songs are a brand new take on old-time country. In 2018, the Sapsuckers were nominated for Best Country Band by the WI. Area Music Assn. Their music recalls classic hillbilly music, while bringing a distinctly modern and lively touch to the American genre. They launched their 2018 album at an official SXSW ( South by Southwest film, media, music fest in Austin, TX.) and won a standing ovation!
