Not From Wisconsin is 10 years strong!
Made up of Dave Yantorno (songwriter, vocals, guitar), Angela Yantorno (violin, vocals), Brett Powell (drums, vocals), John Young (bass) and Brooks Miner (keyboard), Not From Wisconsin has been performing it’s blend of indie rock/chamber folk since 2008. Not From Wisconsin has two records under their belts, a self-titled debut out in 2010 and the follow-up And Again released in 2015.
“Dave Yantorno, the songwriter, guitarist, and singer for Not From Wisconsin, describes his band’s music as “chamber folk” or “chamber rock.” Given that his compositions tend to oscillate back and forth between ripping, syncopated rock tunes and slow, meditative, country-inflected songs, both characterizations seem fair. Not From Wisconsin is able by turns to sound as ticked off as Uncle Tupelo and as pensive as Mazzy Star.” Ithaca Times
Join us in the Beer Garden from 6-8pm for live music, food, and beer!
