Doors open at 5pm music starts at 6:30 Jon Knudson is the lead vocalist and songwriter of Wisconsin Country + Americana band Driveway Thriftdwellers. Starting out as a few guys who just wanted to play some Flying Burrito Brothers tunes, the Driveway Thriftdwellers have emerged as a top original act in Wisconsin’s Country and Americana music scenes. Named 2017 WAMI Country Artist of the Year, the Thriftdwellers have toured the past year in support of their critically acclaimed debut album “Cutover Country,” named a top 10 Milwaukee area album of 2016 by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel declared the Thriftdwellers’ 2017 Summerfest performance a “Best Of” performance for the festival, and called the band a must see live act for Summer 2017. “Emotionally ripe, old school country.” – Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “Like a vintage yard sale that Merle Haggard might have thrown.” Isthmus. “Rugged, straightforward country songwriting.” Tone Madison. Voted Best Live Act in Milwaukee (Milwaukee Magazine, 2017), it’s been 4 years since Zach Pietrini showed up on the Milwaukee music scene. Despite being a Chicago transplant, The Zach Pietrini Band has become a recognized name around town playing featured spots at Summerfest and Bastille Days. At the forefront of the Americana resurgence in the north country, Pietrini quickly distinguished himself with his fearless vulnerability, prolific writing, and dynamic live show. “Pietrini’s skill is crafting the kind of Americana that gets right into you with a beguiling friendliness” (88Nine Radio Milwaukee).
