Summer Sunset unWINEd Series

8/6: LINE – acoustic duo 

  • LINE is a multi-genre, collaborative music project by artist Maddie Batzli. Maddie works as a solo artist and with bandmates to create songs ranging between reflective contemporary folk, moody indie rock, and electric synth pop. Personal reflection, queer love, and social commentary show up as common themes in LINE’s songs. Beyond the music, what makes LINE special is the apparent joy the group takes in playing together, and the chemistry that results from that friendship and shared drive. Performing as a duo at Schuster’s Blooms & Butterflies event, Maddie and bandmate Austin Lynch will play acoustic folk pop originals and covers

8/7: Sophia and Cecilia Speece 

  • Sophia and Cecilia are lever harpists who know and perform both traditional and contemporary music.  They have been playing harp for 7 years and love performing at special events.  Sophia also performs her beautiful music at wedding ceremonies.

8/13 & 8/14: Marques Morel

  • Marques Morel is a Midwestern American songwriter/folksinger, guitar-strummer/harmonica wailer, Street-performer/wandering troubadour, itinerant woodcutter/migrant worker, and a friend to all. He has performed everywhere from big city street corners around the world, to county fairs and festivals, to dingy bars, listening rooms and theaters. Known for his intense and infectious energy on stage and his gritty and honest songwriting and delivery, Marques Morel will be found performing either as a one man show, or with his band, The Midnight Wind. After nearly a decade since his last solo release, Marques released his new LP, Trail of the Ghost, in February of 2021. Trail of the Ghost is an intimate portrait of a haunted man as he wanders the old and the new American west. Rich with iconic figureheads such as Woody Guthrie, Jack Kerouac, Crazy Horse, and Geronimo, Morel’s new record is a journey in itself that is well worth the walk.

8/20 & 8/21: Nick Venturella

  • Nick Venturella is a Madison, WI-based professional musician, artist, author, and marketer–inspiring others to invest in themselves & take creative action toward success.

8/27: SPEAKEASY 

  • In 1971 in an old farmhouse on the far west side of Madison, SPEAKEASY was born. Original members included Jon Lutz, Tom Morrison, Ron Muraski, and Phil Staley. Later, guitarist John Fumelle joined the band. They enjoyed playing at many venues in Wisconsin and Illinois and as far west as Montana for a number of years. All the members stayed active in music, and in 2004, the original members brought the band back together. Additional friends have joined the band for various gigs, including Pat Clark and Brad Ryan on guitar; Larry Turk on sax, flute, and harmonica; Darin Ruck on drums; and Dan Morrison on vocals. The band continues to play 60s and 70s music that is a mix of Pop, Rock, Country Rock, and Blues, covering The Beatles, Bad Finger, Rolling Stones, Allman Brothers, Eric Clapton, and others. This danceable music has endured the test of time and the band is still excited to share it with their audiences.
