Music @ MAC presents Jack Grelle & Ryan Koenig

With Yellow-Bellied Sapsuckers

Jack Grelle and Ryan Koenig are a roots country duo of two St. Louis natives.  Koenig is most known for touring the world as Pokey LaFarge's multi-instrumentalist.  Grelle has played his heartfelt original songs in bar rooms and living rooms across the globe.  

Together, Grelle and Koenig play a mix of original tunes in the style of honky tonk, old time, western and southwestern country.  This duo will satisfy the longing of any true American music fan.

 

The Yellow-Bellie Sapsuckers, a duo from Viroqua, Wisconsin, perform traditional American fiddle tunes and sing tight harmony songs, including country, vaudeville, hits of the 1920s and 30s and original songs and fiddle tunes.  Peppered into their ever-evolving repertoire is also music from other lands - Canada, Transylvania, Sweden, Mexico and Venezuela to name a few - that has caught their fancy.

The Sapsuckers are Nikki Grossman on fiddle, vocals and guitar; and Joe Hart on guitar and vocals.  Hard and Grossman are also highly skilled professional kazooists.  Both are seasoned musicians and performers who have worked, together and separately, in numerous other old-time, folk, rock, country bands and other musical projects.  They are regular performers on the Kickapoo Barn Dance, a live radio musica variety show on their local community radio station, WDRT.
