Lexi weege & the wondertwins

Thursday, July 18th

Weege & The Wondertwins combine elements of past and present to create a sound that is both nostalgic and fresh. With powerhouse vocalist, Lexi Weege fronting this hot jazz circus rock outfit, one is guaranteed an experience like no other when attending a show. Identical twins Aj and Tom Del Negro provide lush harmonies and unique compositions all backed by drummer Erek Browns refreshingly dynamic style. Their debut album “Marigold” arrived in spring of 2017 and national tours and wild adventures followed soon afterward. Their sophomore album "Do I Seem Weird Lately?" is out now and features newest wonderboy Nick Ferrara on twangy telecaster.


Melanie Brulée

Thursday, July 25th

What most might call Americana, folk-rock or country music, Toronto-based Melanie Brulée colours her own, bringing a vintage respect to a modern sound by intertwining surf-style guitar tones and catchy melody hooks - all with the vibe of a speakeasy cabaret. Her music has been on regular rotation on CBC and Sirius XM and her third album Fires, Floods & Things We Leave Behind, exploring themes of family, loss and addiction, was released in October 2018.

Merging elements of Folk, Rock, Pop, and Americana, Among the Acres delivers an eclectic yet singular sound, marked by cascading four-part vocal harmonies, dynamic grooves, and a keen sense for lyricism. Cutting their teeth by playing everywhere from breweries and small clubs to festivals and showcases throughout the Northeast, the “Acres” have been honing their powerhouse of a live set non-stop since the band’s inception in 2017.


Wise Old Moon

Thursday, August 22nd

The original creators and long time hosts of Wise Old Moon's Twang Thursdays return to Hog River Brewing Co. for a free show in the taproom. Defined by the road-worn vocals and authentic lyrics of singer/songwriter Connor Zane Millican, Wise Old Moon embodied the sound of folk & Americana with their debut album ‘The Patterns’. As the band evolved and incorporated a variety of players while touring around the Northeast, the group's focus shifted to exploring the edge of American roots music and indie rock while honing in on their live performances. Wise Old Moon has since released 2 full length albums and toured all over the US. The band’s recent EP ‘Factory Town’ is inspired by an industrial neighborhood in Hartford where Wise Old Moon is based from.
