Founded in late 2013, Them Coulee Boys have quickly become a force on the Midwest music scene. Soren Staff, Beau Janke, Jens Staff, and Neil Krause work together as a well-oiled alt-folk machine to craft songs and live shows that have impressed audiences nationwide.
Them Coulee Boys live shows are energetic affairs, with a constant passion and sincerity evident in each song they play. Some songs it’s an infectious stomp, inviting the listener to dance along. Driving banjo, guitar, mandolin, and bass provide a backdrop for fast-paced narratives about love and life, ordinary or incredible. Other songs leave room for space, with ambient electric banjo and finger picked instrumentation accompany songs dealing with the harsh realities of things we cannot control. These are songs from a band that is not afraid to take chances. These are songs from a band that’s comfortable stripped down, or turned way up. These songs are deeply personal and entirely relatable. Maybe that’s what makes theses songs so easy to sing along with, and these performances so moving. You’re invited to feel a whole range of emotions, and that makes for shows that you won’t soon forget.
A collective of Iowa City musicians have teamed up to ramble every where from street corners to red carpet events. Founded in 2012, named on the assumption that the band would play two shows and dissolve; the band is currently in their fifth year of playing all over the Midwest. These pickers and grinners bring a fun mix of folk music of many shades. With warm humor and fiery content, this band will have you dancing and laughing, singing and stomping, and cherishing the moments we drink to remember! Noted for their shining harmonies, provocative compositions, and heart-felt performances, Flash in a Pan dishes out a sound that is all at once familiar and refreshingly different.
