CELEBRATING 20+ YEARS OF SCARY GOOD MUSIC WITH A MISSION
Looking to play here? Two things; use email (no calls, I’m trying to get work done at the day job) and read the page linked to in the next sentence. We like to hear from musicians we don’t know about but… if you want to see if you’ll fit, look at this page here.
All shows are at the North Madison Congregational Church, 1271 Durham Rd, Madison. See you here soon!!
You can read this first, or scroll down to the shows:
Ticket Sales or Reservations:
1A: Reservations almost always necessary. It’s possible there may be walk-in space available, but it’s not guaranteed. We will post if there’s walk-in room available under each show’s individual heading. Check the status the afternoon of the show, before you drive over!! Shows can fill up fast with this level of talent!
1B:To reserve seats or for more information for these shows please send us an email. All seats are assigned and reserved in the order in which they come in, so if you reserve early, you get good seats. If the link isn’t working for you, the email is: workdog(at)mindspring.com, or call Charlie at 203-668-3735. Leave a message if he can’t hear the phone due to tools powering away.
1C: Pay at the door, always. Cash or check is fine. We don’t do the pre-pay thing because we’re too lazy to figure it out. Plus, if you’re sick or something, you’re already miserable, and losing the price of a ticket makes it worse.
We are the only concert venue with a mission.We want to educate, inspire, and yes, entertain. Not to waste space here, please look at the “workshops: the mission” page to see what we mean. Virtually EVERY concert is a fundraiser for a local non-profit.

You’d have to be a first-order music geek to know about this trio. It features the head of the Berklee strings department, Dr. David Wallace. A Juilliard instructor for a bit, he left to head up Berklee because he loved the idea of all the musical worlds colliding, crashing, blending and coming out in brave new ways. There aren’t too many places in the world where this happens, and we’re lucky to be right down the extended road from one of the world’s most important places where this kind of creativity happens. You’d also have to have your head in the sand to not know that this blending is where all music is heading.Doc Wallace has played just about every musical genre that has a name, and most that don’t. I guess it falls into the category of alt/classical. I guess. I can’t really describe it, and that’s why you need to hear it. Seldom does something get me this excited. Get ready. Adults the usual $25, kids high school and under, $5.00
MAY 11, 7:00 PM
SUGAR AND THE MINT
A couple of things happening here… at 5, it’s the annual sponsor/volunteer appreciation pizza party, and then at 7, it’s Sugar And The Mint. Another of our long line of really great young bands that we like to feature before they get big. Like Mipso or Bearfoot before them, they’re just plain fresh. A great vibe, with great songs, vocals, all that. Like many who have come here before them, they’re also Telluride award winners. Just making it into the competition is hard enough, but winning? ‘Nuff said. It’s our indoor season opener, before we head outdoors for some fundraising action. Adults, $25, kids high school and under, $5.00
Sometime in July
The Rettich Preserve barbecue/concert/outdoor party fundraiser.
The date’s not set yet, and nor is the music. But once we get it all sorted out, it’s great fun. Last year, it was the Page Turners, and the year before that, Low Lilly. No matter what, it’ll be a great evening!
