Saturday, January 10th: Corral Bar and Grill in Abbotsford. 3 pm to 7 pm
115 N 1st St - right in the heart of downtown Abbotsford. The hours are perfect for coming out for some of Sherri and Rick's taste treats while enjoying music from the 60's and 70's. Like them on Facebook and find out more!

Saturday, February 21st: Sammy's Pizza in Eau Claire. 8 pm to midnight
Beat the winter doldrums by coming out for a night of friendly banter, maybe some onion rings and cheese curds while you wait for your 14" Sammy's Special, and a pitcher of suds. The good part is, you don't even have to leave your table when the food is gone to take in some great music!
Saturday, February 28th: VFW on Starr Avenue in Eau Claire. 8 pm to midnight
Saturday, March 7th: VFW on Folsom St in Eau Claire. 8 pm to midnight
It's our maiden voyage for this venue and we'd love to have some friendly faces out there to support us.
Saturday, March 14th: Drywood Tavern in Cadott. Hours TBD
Just off Highway 27 near the Fest grounds, Drywood is a beacon in the winter night. It's cozy, full of nice people, with room to sit and to dance (preferably not at the same time).
Saturday, March 28th: Sammy's Pizza in Eau Claire. 8 pm to midnight
Saturday, April 11th: Eau Claire Curling Club annual fundraiser, reverse raffle and soiree. 8 pm to midnight
Yep, we're back again. Had so much fun last year, we ran out of time, so we're going to keep it going this year. This is one of our favorite gigs of the year, but you gotta buy a ticket to get in and they sell fast. Food (lots of it!) and beer (lots of it!) are included in the cost of tickets. For more information, contact the Curling Club.
Saturday, April 18th: VFW on Folsom St in Eau Claire. 8 pm to midnight
Saturday, April 25th: Sammy's Pizza in Eau Claire. 8 pm to midnight
Eau Claire's favorite pizza and Eau Claire's favorite band. Win-win!
Saturday, May 16th: Back at Sammy's in Eau Claire. 8 pm to midnight
Come on back to the bar, order up some appetizers, a couple pizzas, a few of your favorite beverages, and stay put for some great 60's and 70's music. You'll probably want to work off the calories on the dance floor and we'll be there to help.
Saturday, May 23rd: Big Swede's on beautiful Lake Holcombe. Time TBD
Sunday, May 24th: Gilligan's Tiki Bar, Chetek. 2 pm to 6 pm
Let the summer fun begin! We're kicking off Tiki Bar season on beautiful Pokegama Lake with our good friends at Gilligan's. If you haven't been here before, it's a summertime MUST. Great food, yummy drinks, umbrella-shaded tables, and Wisconsin's largest sandbox, and a huge dock so you can cruise on over in your pontoon - what's not to love!?
Sunday, June 7th: Jake's Supper Club Tiki Bar, Menomonie. 2 pm to 6 pm
One of our favorite summer destinations. Beautiful, multi-level Tiki bar seating shaded by monster elm trees with boat access from Lake Tainter. The food is heavenly (three words: Prime.Rib.Bites!), drinks are refreshing, there's plenty of room for dancing. You can even bring your own lawn chair and enjoy the music from the lawn.
Saturday, June 20th: Gilligan's Tiki Bar, Chetek. 2 pm to 6 pm
Summer is in full swing and you're going to want to break free from the confines of the nine-to-five. Come on out, have some lunch, an afternoon appetizer, or dinner out at the Tiki Bar and soak in some Vitamin D while dancing barefoot in the sand. Can't beat that!
Saturday, June 27th: SandBar and Grill on 50th Ave. in Lafayette / Lake Wissota. 6 pm to 9 pm
Great way to spend a summer evening, under the stars with 40 Fingers on the outdoor stage.
Thursday, July 2nd: Gilligan's Tiki Bar, Chetek. 6 pm to 10 pm
We're kicking off the Independence Day holiday weekend on beautiful Pokegama Lake. The time is a little later than normal, but we're still outside on the Tiki Bar stage and, for a holiday weekend, 10 pm ain't nuthin'. Just makes our light show that much better.
Saturday, July 11th: Munson Bridge Winery in Withee. 6 pm to 10 pm
If you haven't been to Munson Bridge winery yet, shame on you! Beautiful grounds, wine tasting, lots of delicious wines, oils and vinegars - you didn't even know that many existed! Sherry and Tom are delightful hosts, and you can sit back with a bottle your favorite wine (if you like sweet whites, I recommend the Mango Symphony or Cran-Raspberry) in the open tent, taking in the view and the music. Dancing is recommended.
Sunday, July 12th: Jake's Supper Club Tiki Bar, Menomonie. 2 pm to 6 pm
More fun at Jake's split level Tiki Bar, where there's room for everybody. Those mature elms are going to make for a perfect afternoon to eat, drink, be merry, and dance. Here's an appetizer hint for you: the cheese curds are A) real curds and not squares of cheese masquerading as curds, and B) made from award winning Western Wisconsin cheese and Leinenkugel's beer batter. It's not possible to go wrong there.
Saturday, July 25th: Gilligan's Tiki Bar, Chetek. 2 pm to 6 pm
Hot enough for ya? There's something about being on the water, under an umbrella, hoisting a chilled drink that cools the temps a good 10 degrees. Join us out on the Tiki Bar for some hot Rock & Roll and cool sand between the toes. Come by car or by boat - either one gets you right to the edge of the fun.
Saturday, August 8th: Thirsty Badger Bar and Grill in Hallie. 7 pm to 11 pm
Another premiere for us, right here in your back yard. Check out their Website, peruse the menu (looks dee-LISH), see the drink specials (they even have a special deal on shots of Yukon Jack when the trains roll by!), and plan to join us for a fun evening.
Saturday, August 15th: SandBar and Grill on 50th Ave. in Lafayette / Lake Wissota. 6 pm to 9 pm
Spend a summer evening outdoors, where there's lots of room to dance in the grass and there are tables and chairs for everyone.
Saturday, August 22nd: Gilligan's Tiki Bar, Chetek. 2 pm to 6 pm
I don't know about you, but we can't get enough of the food, drink and friendly people at Gilligan's. Come by land or by sea - they'll both get you to the Tiki Bar.
Saturday, September 5th: Gilligan's Tiki Bar, Chetek. 2 pm to 6 pm
It's one last hurrah on the mighty Pokegama. Come out and soak up some sun before the summer season officially winds down.
Monday, September 7th: Jake's Supper Club Tiki Bar, Menomonie. 2 pm to 6 pm
The official last day of summer, and what better way to celebrate than an afternoon at Jake's? Before you head back to the indoor doldrums, surround yourself with cheese curds, prime rib bites, maybe a Jake's Burger or a Dijon Salmon Dinner (Hal's personal favorite), a refreshing beverage, and some good company. We'll provide some fun rock and roll throwbacks - you take a spin on the dance floor, in between bites.
