One Evening - 2 Artists
This weekend, Saturday 17th, we offer a lighter option for those who prefer a more gentle tone for Fish Day Festivities. This week we will be featuring 2 artists; John Higgins and Mark Hubing and Band. They will surprise us with individual artistry as well as dabbles of musical collaboration.
Singer/ Songwriter John Higgins spent some time in the USN, lot of time as an at home dad and as much time as possible playing guitar and banjo and writing songs. His songs are about every day life and usually include some kind of positive message. As a teacher for at risk students he finds great material for songs in the interactions of the people he meets. With his flat picking style of guitar and banjo playing he hopes to inspire folks into making the world a better place. John also would like to invite everyone to join him on the first Friday of every month, except July and January, at the “Acoustic Open Mic Live” an open mic he hosts at Living Hope Lutheran church community room in Saukville WI.
The Mark Hubing Band is a musical experience that presents fresh, bright lyrics in a blend of acoustical ballads, earth-groove beats and soul-rock songs in hopes of creating enjoyment and spreading love through music. The five-piece group arranges and performs songs written by Mark Hubing (acoustic). Hubing’s songs speak of the divinity in all aspects; regaling tales of loss and sorrow as well as pleasure and delight. Interesting and flowing, each song is a tribute to an idea or experience and is displayed accordingly by the budding soul/folk rock band. Hubing and his brother, Ben (drums) have been performing original music together since 2002. Through time, the duo gelled with an additional set of brothers Anthony Deutsch (keyboards, vocals) and Nick Deutsch (bass) as well as blues guitarist Scott Wadell (lead guitar).
This music brings encouragement for the down-trodden and peace for the mind. The group performs mainly in south-eastern Wisconsin in venues, gardens, backyards, canoe races, festivals, etc. and is always willing to explore a new opportunity to let their music be heard.
