Wifee and the Huzz Band

This 10 piece band has original music heavy band with Full Horn Section and a DJ in our entirety pulling from influences of old Soul, Motown,  50's-60's Rock and Roll, Rhythm and Blues and some Funk. When asked how to describe them, they are "New Vintage" or "New Classic Soul."

Most of our Original songs have been written by Coopy (CoopDeville- THE HUZz) and Kitty (THE WIFEE) together and with some other great writer and musician friends from Steel Bridge Songfest and other Holiday Music Motel events. The idea for this band came about on August 6th 2012 when the couple got engaged at Poh's Pub. Both played a lot of music over the years with many great artists and bands and we're happy to have come together to bring these new but old familiar sounds that are WIFEE and the HUZz!  

They will fill your soul with love while making you shake yo' booty all night long!

Davina and the Vagabonds

So much more than just a blues act, Davina and the Vagabonds' shows are filled with New Orleans charm, Memphis soul swagger, dark theatrical moments and tender gospel passages. Davina’s voice and stage presence defy category in a different way. Davina has been compared to Etta James, Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin, and Billie Holiday, but comparisons don’t suffice: she is a true original. 

The group’s focused, clean sound and emphasis on acoustic instruments is novel to both blues and jazz worlds, setting the Vagabonds apart at blues festivals in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Sighisoara, Romania, Sierre, Switzerland, Kemi, Finland, and New Orleans Jazz, Monterey Jazz Festival and Heritage Festival.

Watch them here.

Switchback

You have seen them on PBS, now catch this Celtic Americana band's return to THELMA!

For over two decades, Brian FitzGerald and Martin McCormack, have entertained crowds with their unique American Roots ~ Celtic Soul blend of music With an exciting mix of mandolin, guitar, and bass. Their harmonies have won them comparisons to famous duos, such as the Louvin Brothers, the Everly Brothers, and Simon and Garfunkel. 

Their Celtic music is authentically Irish, drawing praise from such traditional players as Matt Malloy of the group the Chieftains. Ireland has taken Switchback to her heart, with performances at art centers throughout the country and appearances on RTE (Raidió Teilifís Éireann). At the same time, their music is modern Celtic, with songs capturing the Irish of today as accurately as the Pogues and singer-songwriters like Christy Moore.

But to pay attention only to the Celtic side of Switchback would be a disservice to the unique American roots music crafted by FitzGerald and McCormack. None other than the Grammy Award-winning producer Lloyd Maines chose to work with Switchback in producing three of their albums and considers the duo one of the most important acts playing Americana music today. Their latest collaboration has resulted in Switchback’s 13th album "Kanoka.” With the soaring pedal steel of Maines along with the boxcar-hopping harmonica of Chicago's own Howard Levy, Switchback has created a musical journey that will make every Midwesterner proud of the heartland and every non-Midwesterner longing for it.

Switchback television specials “The Americana Sessions” and “The Celtic Sessions” have aired on PBS stations around the U.S. The band has also been working with Paul Mertens (who arranged the music for “Brian Wilson Reimagines Gershwin”) on orchestral scores for “Kanoka: A Postcard from the Heartland” and “Bolinree: A Celtic Journey” suitable for a 50-chair orchestra.
