Friday Entertainment

Patchouli - Friday, 5:00 p.m. - Forest Stage

Master guitarist, Bruce Hecksel is considered one of the most exciting acoustic lead guitar players of our time. Teamed up with Julie Patchouli, whose crystal pure voice and dynamic percussive guitar sparkle, Patchouli’s sound has been described as “the harmonies of Simon & Garfunkel meet the guitar brilliance of the Gipsy Kings". 

Their instrumental guitar project Terra Guitarra – “Dragonfly” was Nominated ZMR 2014 Best Instrumental Acoustic Album of the Year. Patchouli’s music lyrically expresses that celebration of the beauty of nature, the healing messages of connection and environment with topics of tolerance, love and stories from their extensive travels. It's family friendly earth conscious folk meets flamenco.
“Patchouli live is amazing.  I compare it to taking a yoga class in a field of running mustangs.” –City Pages

The Mustache - Friday, 7:00 p.m. - Main Stage

In a time where live music has been dominated by mainstream labels, new technology, and worst of all, hairless upper lips, Wisconsin's finest funk/dance party band The Mustache has kept strong roots in classic and contemporary funk music which is ideal for producing a flourishing, thick and bushy, party atmosphere. Along with their desire to create the funkiest music possible, the band also exudes a satirical sense of humor in a
Spinal Tap-esque fashion with comical characters and outrageous stage antics. Don’t miss this Mustache ride!

"Makin' it NASTY is what we do and we expect the same from you!!!"

Saturday Entertaiment

Prodo - Saturday, 5:00 p.m. - Forest Stage

On the surface Prodo is an Alternative Funk-Rock band that plays original music with addictive funky bass lines, jaw dropping drumming, and unforgivingly groovy guitar. Positive thoughtful lyrics about living the good life float atop irresistible dance grooves and dizzying breaks. But underneath the funky foundation lives a secret force that drives the band. As described in their debut album Prodotype, Prodo is an ancient spirit that possesses the members of the band and works through them for its unknown means. Once they start the beat, the spirit takes them hostage and slowly washes over the room through the sound waves.

Prodo's music will make your body twitch and writhe and it's groove has been known to hypnotize the unwary and unwise. So be warned that hidden beneath the energetic funky grooves and positive vibrations lay dark untamed explorations of African World Music, Reggae, Jazz, Blues, Metal, Rock n Roll, and the unknown will of the spirit called Prodo.
