Sweet Dreams & Honky Tonks at Mineral Point Opera House
Friday September 19 at 7:30pm Sweet Dreams & Honky Tonks will be performed at the Mineral Point Opera House.
It may be impossible to crown any one performer as country music's biggest star, but few would argue that Hank Williams, Loretta Lynn, Patsy Cline and Johnny Cash would all be near the top of any list. Each broke barriers and changed country and popular music forever. Sweet Dreams & Honky Tonks is a new revue that presents the best loved hits of these classic artists, along with stories of their colorful lives and amazing careers.
Sweet Dreams & Honky Tonks stars two Wisconsin music veterans: Tom Waselchuk has performed for over three decades, sometimes juggling multiple projects, but always keeping one foot planted firmly in country music. Mr. Waselchuk is a singer and song writer, and plays guitar, bass and pedal steel guitar. Jami Lampkins moved to Madison in 2007 from Nashville, where she was a finalist in the USA Network's "Nashville Star" competition. Ms. Lampkins is a powerful singer, a song writer, and an accomplished guitarist and banjo player who has played professionally since age 14.
Mr. Waselchuk and Ms. Lampkins are regular guest performers on Midwest Country, a music showcase broadcast nationally on Saturday evenings on the RFD-TV network.
The back up band for Sweet Dreams & Honky Tonks is The Dang-Its, a group Mr. Waselchuk founded in 1998. The band includes Rick Nass on pedal steel guitar, Pete Olig on electric and upright bass, and Mark Luhring on drums. The Dang-Its were named 2013 Country/Bluegrass Performer of the Year by the Madison Area Music Awards, and their most recent recording, A Lick of Sense, was named the MAMAs 2014 Country Bluegrass Album of the Year.
