We are excited to announce that Sheboygan's own The Belle Weather will be opening for the next Étude Sessions featuring Mike Mangione & the Union. The Belle Weather was formed in 2011 and released their first album in 2013 at the Pabst Theater in Milwaukee. The band is about to release their second album titled "Suitcase" on April 26th at Paradigm Coffee + Music. The Belle Weather describes themselves by saying:
"The Belle Weather is a hurricane.
We are acoustic guitars, stories, and melody. We are the resonant, pounding beat of a kick drum, the deep pulse of a bass guitar, and the siren's wail of an over-driven tube amp. We are open fields and skyscrapers - equal parts modern folk and alternative rock - a fusion of inspired anthems and the art of simple storytelling.
Over the years, we've taken a great many influences and blended them into a sound that is uniquely our own. We've built a reputation by approaching every stage we can find with a rare combination of gritty, sweat-drenched energy and honest, heart-felt sonic grace. We love doing what we do, and feel very fortunate to have a fan base that is as musically adventurous as we've always tried to be."
