Bird's Eye
Bird's Eye
Bird’s Eye is a Madison six-piece creating funky hip hop with live instrumentation. Building cred steadily since 2013, they now fill venues alongside other prime acts both local and touring. Shows are characterized by the band’s ability to engage a crowd and surprise even devoted fans when inviting guests to share the stage impromptu.

The rhythm section—featuring Evan’s explorative bass, Sean’s refined drumming, and Lauren adorning the mix with keys, vocals and sax—builds a groove-driven foundation for Ra Fury’s cutting lyricism, Joe’s wah-wah counterpoint on guitar, and Hannah’s soulful lead-singing. All six are uniquely valued because everyone has a part in each song that makes it so recognizable. Bird’s Eye plays at least monthly in the Madison area and has demos posted on Soundcloud and Youtube—show your support!
The Gambol
The Gambol
It was in a back corner of a student union kitchen, pushing racks of grimy plates coated with dried Wisconsin cheese once draped over pizza through an industrial sized dish washer, that two UW-Madison students started talking music. This conversation led to a synthesis of violin rooted in classical traditions and folk guitar.

Word spread like wildfire through that student union kitchen and social networks. It did not take long for the three remaining members to infuse their musical roots of blues, pop, and rock into the sound. This quintet pulled from a multitude of musical backgrounds, aiming to create one thing - authentic, quality soundwaves. Thus, The Gambol was born.

After recording an EP, playing shows and gaining a following across Wisconsin, The Gambol connected with Ken Coomer, producer and former member of Wilco and Uncle Tupelo. A trip down to Coomer's Cartoon Moon Studios in Nashville, TN, spurred a new creative direction and culminated in the band's first full length album, self-titled The Gambol. The album is set for release in March 2017, with an album tour spanning the entire Midwest.

With the pronunciation of their name implying delinquency and risk, while the definition meaning joyful acts of revelry, The Gambol's brand of folk-rock makes you move your feet to life's queries and juxtapositions.
