Chicken Wire Empire
This event has expired. This may be a recurring event, so please check the calendar in the future for updated occurrences.
Chicken Wire Empire began as a four-piece traditional bluegrass band. Half of the group is rooted in bluegrass and the other half is steeped in jamband music. With the addition of Jon Peik (banjo), Ernest Brusubardis IV (fiddle), and Greg Brundage (guitar), a new sound was found in Milwaukee, and Chicken Wire Empire joined the roster of high energy jamgrass. “The new Chicken Wire Empire record is a technically proficient, well-crafted mixture of modern original songwriting and time earned classics. They seem to have taken on some wonderfully exciting elements of modern progressive bluegrass while also retaining their original character, born of their greater Milwaukee town roots.” – Adam Greuel of Horseshoes & Hand Grenades.
