Live Music Event — Rambler Fest — Will Raise Money to Send Kids to Summer Camp Friday August 23rd

We are excited to host a live music event at Third Space Brewing, Friday August 23rd. All proceeds from the event will go towards sending children to summer camp who otherwise could not afford it.  The benefit concert features Milwaukee-native and Capitol Records-signed artist – Grace Weber. Other performers include The Whiskey Farm and Life in a Tree.

As many of our followers know, our co-founders, Kevin and Andy, first met as summer camp counselors at Milwaukee-area YMCA Camp Minikani. This summer, Camp Minikani celebrates it’s 100th year. To honor the occasion, we brewed a special beer called Rambler Summertime Pale Ale.  We are donating all profits from sales of Rambler to Camp Minikani.

To cap this summer of giving, we have created Rambler Fest with the help of several amazing musicians and sponsors who also have ties to Camp Minikani.  All proceeds from Rambler Fest ticket sales will be donated to Camp Minikani with the funds earmarked specifically for camper scholarships. The event is Friday August 23rd from 6-11pm at Third Space Brewing. Tickets are required and can be purchased here: BUY RAMBLER FEST TICKETS

For Grace Weber, the most powerful moments in music have come from abandoning all expectation and embracing a purely childlike sense of curiosity. Compounded with Weber’s ineffable talent—including the soul-igniting vocal presence she first developed by singing in a gospel choir all throughout her childhood—that joyfully uninhibited approach has brought a whirlwind of success in recent years. In 2016, Weber penned the opening track on Chance the Rapper’s Coloring Book (“All We Got” feat. Kanye West & Chicago Children’s Choir), then saw the groundbreaking mixtape go on to win Best Rap Album at the 2017 Grammy Awards.

At the end of 2017, Weber independently released her single “More Than Friends,” a sweetly hypnotic track whose breakout success quickly led Weber to a deal with Capitol Records. Weber’s Capitol Records debut album, “s p a c e” is slated for release later this year and was produced by Nate Fox and Nico Segal of The Social Experiment and Carter Lang (SZA).
Weber has recently toured South America with Chance, and North America with PJ Morton while continuing her work with The Music Lab, Inc. (a Milwaukee-based nonprofit she co-founded with her manager to offer free music education to local kids).
And as she gears up to share her new music with the world, one of her greatest hopes is to instill others with the same sense of possibility she found in creating each song. “Making this album, we decided that we were going to let it take us on a journey, instead of trying to force anything,” says Weber. “I’d love for people to come away feeling like they’ve been taken on a journey too, whatever that might mean for them. Hopefully it’ll help them to uncover deeper parts of themselves that they maybe hadn’t understood before—all the little contradictions that make us the complicated and beautiful people we are.”

Life in a Tree

Check out Life in a Tree’s latest release here

Life In A Tree is an alt-pop/rock band from Wisconsin now based in Nashville. In 2018, they were nominated by the Radio Milwaukee Music Awards as the Best Band of the Year and in 2017, they won the award for Independent Release of the Year. They have recently reinvented their style from their youthful emo-alt rock to a more polished, commercially-rich sound. Chris Bound of UK Mystic Son’s describes them as “the US outfit that channeled the pop-rock sound of Paramore”. Their latest singles, “When You Know You Know” & “FOMO” were both recorded in Nashville with Rian Dawson of the legendary pop-rock band, All Time Low. Their alt-pop/rock sound shines through the cushioned ambiance of synthesized sonics, playful guitar licks reminiscent of the 80’s and powerfully captivating vocals.

This trio of Molly Lutz (vocals/bass/synth), DJ Underwood (guitar/bass/keys) and Jimmy Cooper (drums), sought out to combine their emotionally-charged lyrics with Dawson’s radio-friendly acumen. Through their various influences, they have channeled a uniquely current take on bands like Paramore, Walk The Moon, Twenty One Pilots, Young the Giants, and The 1975. Marquette University Radio said “Despite their young age, this band’s trajectory is star-bound”. Life In A Tree is now poised to take their music to the masses.

The Whiskey Farm

Listen to a Whiskey Farm tune that always puts us in our Happy Place here. 

The Whiskey Farm is an Americana and folk rock band from Madison, Wisconsin.  Formed in 2010,the band released their first record, “Middle of America,” in 2011 and in 2012 won the Madison Area Music Award (MAMA) for Best Americana/Folk song for the lead track, “If I Were You.”  TheOnion A.V. Club described The Whiskey Farm as “straddling the line between bluegrass and folk, blending technical wows with accessible songwriting for very pop-minded Americana.”  The Americana Gazette wrote that they have “great tunes, killer hooks, and fantastic harmonies,” and The Isthmus called them “a big boost for the little music scene thriving here in the middle of America.”

The band features multi-instrumentalists and layered harmonies in lyric-driven songs.  In 2013, The Whiskey Farm released their second full-length album, From the Still, and won the MAMA for Best Ensemble Vocals. They have shared the stage with Americana favorites such as Phox, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Pert Near Sandstone, and Shooter Jennings. Their third record, Book of Matches (2015) was described by Local Sounds as “another fine recording that exemplifies the Midwestern ethos.” Most recently, The Whiskey Farm has turned to social activism with their recent release, Songs of Resistance (2017).
