Wisconsin Roots Music Cooperative Member Sponsorship Campaign 2018

Update posted by Wisco Roots On Mar 11, 2018

We had a lovely evening at the American Legion Friday night and raised an additional 3057 bucks and 70 new members. One of the performers summed it up pretty well. Here you go and thank you all.

I don't know much about Viroqua. For the last couple of years I kept hearing about driftless this and driftless that and great places to eat and a cool radio station and a funky old tobacco storage barn that had been converted into a bookstore and music tabernacle.

So, after having retired from the work-a-day grind as a government functionary and returning to my artsy-crafty roots, I made arrangements with Eddy Nix to perform at Driftless Books and Music last October. I don't think anybody there knew who I was but I was greeted by an enthusiastic crowd of folks of all ages and occupations who came because they wanted to support live performance. The very talented Luke Callen and the moderately talented I received a level of hospitality and love befitting visiting potentates of a higher realm.

Last night I made a return trip in support of Eddy Nix and his cohorts in their aim to fund Wisconsin Roots Music Cooperative to further support artists and writers and poets and musicians and creators of all ilk. I think every man, woman, and child from that beautiful community was packed into the The American Legion Hall Tap 138 in ardent sustenance of their artists.

Music, laughter, good food, good drink, and fellowship is a thing to behold. And in Viroqua they are beholden to the arts. Go see for yourself.

Now, let's bring this back to me, okay? I am looking forward to a return engagement at Driftless Books and Music on May 26th. It's a Saturday night. There's always a good crowd and they will always make room for more.

Join The Wisconsin Roots Music Cooperative. They are making the world better. Chip in. Everybody gains. Nobody profits.
