Porky’s Groove Machine

Nearing a decade of trombone solo-ing and audience congas lines, they have not gone unnoticed by audiences and promoters across the Midwest; Porky’s has been chosen to support national touring acts like Guster, Here Come the Mummies, The Motet, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, The Werks, and The Main Squeeze. As winners of the 2018 Wisconsin Area Music Industry (WAMI) for “Best R&B/Soul Band,” they were one of three bands chosen to headline the sold out Wisconsin Funk Fest at Madison’s legendary Majestic Theater in January, 2018.

Nicholas David 

This songsmith became known to the world in 2012 as he performed in front of hit-making judges and television audiences during “The Voice.” Finishing third, his performances set him apart from the pack. David and his Feelin Band have released eight studio albums and toured nationally and internationally, sharing the stage with the Avett Brothers, Rusted Root, and Jackson Browne.

Mark Joseph & The American Soul 

Mark Joseph’s 2021 third full-length album, Vegas Motel, is a highly personal record rooted in the emotion of the year it was written (2020), yet reaching far beyond the confines of the times. Co-producer and drummer, JT Bates (Big Red Machine, Hiss Golden Messenger), and Engineer Alex Proctor (Grace Potter, Dead Man Winter), perfectly compliment the records musical tapestry further solidifying Joseph’s talent as a singer/songwriter and collaborator.

History of Winter Ball

Rebel Queens Hitting the Stage!

Rebel Queens Hitting the Stage!

What: Rebel Queens
When: Friday April 1, 2022
Time: 7-10 PM
Where: Pearl Street Brewery
1401 Saint Andrew Street La Crosse, WI 54603
Price: $5

Minneapolis based, vintage-inspired rebel rock band, “Rebel Queens” will be rocking the stage at Pearl Street Brewery Friday April 1, 2022.

In the midst of an era that is saying, “Rock is dead” comes a band of fun-loving women that will make you remember the best of rock n roll! Rebel Queens combines the snarl of Joan Jett with the soul of Led Zeppelin in the same way they seamlessly blend classic rock tracks and original music. Rebel Queens was formed by Tiffany Beamer (Lead Vocals) in 2011 with strong influence from the 70’s all-female band, The Runaways.

Their professional musicianship and ballsy stage presence pour into each song with gritty vocals, wailing guitar solos, tight harmonies, and a rhythm section that will keep you shakin’ all night long. The current lineup features Tiffany Beamer (lead vocals), Danielle Pearson (drums/vocals), Katie Wyrd (guitar/vocals), Stevvie Mora (Lead Guitar), Kelsey Wyrd (bass/vocals).

In 2021, Rebel Queens kicked off their 10th anniversary year with the On The Road inspired single, “Ride On Thru.” In true rebel form, the song blasts through comments and unsolicited advice often given to those that live outside of social norms. The song was picked up by a wide range of radio and given regular rotation, notably the Twin Cities station 89.3 The Current, who gave it 40+ spins in just a few months. The single was followed by the band’s third EP, written and recorded in the midst of the pandemic, Remember Rock N Roll. “The title was a theme that kept presenting itself while writing these songs,” Tiffany explains, “It was hard to say if Rock N Roll and local music venues could survive another major setback. We really hoped people would remember why they love live music!”

Rebel Queens closed out 2021 by sharing the stage with Alice Cooper guitarist and solo artist, Nita Strauss, who gave them high praise. The band has been chosen to perform at Rock Fest 2022 in Cadott, WI alongside some of the biggest acts in rock music today. With a new single and an exciting year on the horizon, Rebel Queens have made it their mission to help carry the rock ‘n’ roll torch and inspire the next generation of Rock Goddesses.

SpaceHeaters is an original horn-heavy funk-rock band, formed in the driftless valley with the sole mission of delivering tasty grooves and unparalleled performances. The band consists of Jordan Shackleton on Drums and Vocals; Trajan Schaub on Guitar and Vocals; Tyler Glasel on Trombone, Guitar, and Vocals; and Troy Glasel on Bass and Vocals.
