The Moonhouse band has been playing their diverse mix of "Folkadelic Americana" for over 10 years in Madison, WI and surrounding area. Lead by animated singer/songwriter Richard "Blackhawk" Kapusta (rhythm guitar and foot bells), his recordings and 40 + years of playing reflect his life's journey - the happy, the sad, his spirit, his soul. The Moonhouse band all started in early 2000 with a shared musical vision of Kapusta and fellow guitarist, the late, great Jeff Hickey. Their acoustic mix of country, folk and bluegrass quickly became a favorite of many Madisonians. The band has always instituted an open door policy for other musicians to sit in and play with them unrehearsed. Calling themselves Moonhouse after the ancient Utah ruins, their performances are kept strictly on a personal level with the audience, greeting regulars walking through the doors and squeezing in political humor whenever possible. Kapusta is the first to say that is not always about politics, Moonhouse is about playing music and making it an accessible environment for all musicians and music lovers..and having a good time with friends, old and new. Kapusta has kept this successful 'open door' formula alive and today the talents of regular band members Jaime Cash (keys, percussion), Dave Bacholl (bass) and Nick Avery-Bucher(lead guitar) round out the sound nicely. This will be a great laid back evening with some of Madison's great talent. Dave Bacholl is the Opera House sound guy, so this should be very interesting. *Special Thanks to Kristine and Ken Johnson for helping to make this show possible.
