Joy Bach

Singer/songwriter Joy Bach released her self-titled debut CD last fall in Nashville at The Bluebird Café. Singing with several bands in the Midwest, and playing venues like Summerfest, Joy has also recorded national commercials, sang opposite Broadway leads and is honored to perform the National Anthem at professional sporting events. When not singing, Joy is a proud mom of 3, panelist for a Milwaukee morning show, an event planner and travels the world with her husband.

Kevin Haynes & Matt Kupcso

Kevin and Matt (K&M) are a dynamic acoustic soul duo. K&M bring something a little different to the world by putting a fresh blues, soul and rock spin on a simple but powerful acoustic set up. Kevin, singer/songwriter, started out singing in church and in elementary school choirs. He has experience in theater, jazz, rock, soul, gospel, classical and more. Kevin has always had a passion for singing but now feels a calling to share his passion with the world. Earlier this year, Kevin teamed up with Matt, a guitarist, who began playing in 1985 and has since then been trained classically. Matt has extensive experience with rock and blues, making his playing not only skillful, but heartfelt and intense. K&M just put an all original acoustic album (EP) together showcasing their raw talent. The album, 'Pure,' was released October 22nd, 2013 and is an intimate collection of tunes discussing Kevin's journey of love, life, and spiritual experiences.

Sherry Amour

A dynamic live performer with encouraging lyrics and powerful arrangements is the condensed description of Singer and Songwriter Sherry Amour. She has performed on the morning news show WGN, on a nationwide Coca-Cola sponsored tour, and she has opened up for major recording artists such as Mint Condition at the House of Blues. Sherry Amour has also released her own recording project "Seasons" which is available on iTunes and after the show.
