Past Performers from 2017

The Big Payback

The Big Paycheck

The Big Payback is an award winning jazz-rock band featuring the soulful vocals of Leah Isabel Tirado and a smoking horn section. Mixing ambitious original tunes that challenge even the most talented musicians with classic covers, the band's live show never fails to get the crowd moving. The Big Payback was nominated as one of Madison's favorite "Dance Bands" by Isthmus readers in 2016. Personnel includes saxophonist Tony Barba, trumpeter Jon Shipper & Eric Siereveld, trombonist Jamie Kember, vocals Leah Tirado, guitarist Kyle Rightley, keyboards Peter Beggenstoss, saxophone and vocals Dave Buss, drummer Joey B. Banks, and bassist Jeff Weiss.

Jim Ott Brass Ensemble Third Coast, Wisconsin

Organized in 2013, The Jim Ott Brass Ensemble Third Coast (JOBE-TC) is dedicated to honoring and preserving the music legacy of its namesake, Jim Ott. Jim's career ended tragically in an automobile accident in 1980 while on tour with the Spirit of Atlanta Drum & Bugle Corps. Jim left us far too soon, but not before leaving an incredible mark on the drum & bugle corps activity. His influence is still present in the brass arrangements of today, and many still long to hear "The Jim Ott Sound." Interim Director for the Ensemble is Morgan Larson.

Jim White, Wisconsin

Madison musician Jim White can be heard around town wielding nothing more than his acoustic guitar and a heartfelt mix of indie-folk and indie-pop tunes. These days, Jim continues entertaining crowds by sharing an eclectic mix of his favorite songs. From Ryan Adams to Justin Townes Earle, Dawes to Death Cab, there's a little something for everyone.

Drop the Puck on ALS


A natural tie-in to Lou Gehrig's Disease, it's a baseball tailgate party held in the parking lot of Miller Park before a Milwaukee Brewers game and includes a free concert, food and drinks, and a ticket to the game. Inside the stadium, we make our presence known by wearing matching ALS t-shirts and having an ALS patient or family member throw the ceremonial first pitch.

Chasin' A Cure


While there's no shortage of charity walk/run events out there, the sense of community and support at ours is absolutely amazing. There's no better way to describe it than a "2.1k Love Fest" (Or 5k Love Fest for the Milwaukee run). Maybe that's because the money that's raised at these events stays right here in Wisconsin, providing equipment and services to help local ALS patients and their families cope with the disease.
Milwaukee Walk to Defeat ALS is on October 7, 2018.

Walk to Defeat ALS


Started in 1992 by Jeff Kaufman, who valiantly battled ALS for 21 years, the Evening of Hope has grown to become one of the most popular black tie charity events in Wisconsin – with 100% of the proceeds going toward researching the cause and a cure for ALS. Please join us for the 25th Annual Evening of Hope on March 10th, 2018.
Stay tuned for more information.
