Hello Friends!
 

It's been super busy but wanted to send out a quick update.  First, I wanted to send a huge shout out to all of my amazing kiddos for their fantabulous performance at our 5th annual "On Broadway" Concert! I am so proud of how hard they all worked to pull off an incredible Broadway Revue in six weeks... and special thanks to Colleen, Allie and Mandy for helping make this show awesome.  You can check out my Chamber Choir's moving performance of "You Will Be Found" from the Broadway Hit Dear Evan Hansen!

This weekend, I'm playing at Gary's Wind Lake Boathouse.  My first-ever solo show that I booked was at Gary's in January of 2017, and it'd be awesome if you could all come out this Saturday and show Gary and the crew some love.  I start at 7 and definitley take requests.  Come hang out with me!

Next Saturday, I'm back at Rawson Pub for a rockin' time. You never know what happens during a night at the Pub, but I guarantee Shuffle Board and Lemon Drops will...

Hello Friends!
 

It's been awhile since I've sent out a news update! Thanks to everyone who came out to my gig at The Milwaukee Ale House --- the weather was beautiful and you guys were awesome.  I posted some live recordings from that gig, so if you want to check them out, feel free!  I hope to be back sometime this winter, and into the spring and next summer for some more outdoor gigs.

It's been a crazy busy past few weeks, filled with weddings (Congrats to Nate and Amanda, and Ben and Timber), celebrating the upcoming wedding of Kaitlin and Chris with Kaitlin's bachelorette party, and a much-needed getaway this weekend to Holcombe/Chippewa Falls for our annual Schlecht Sister's Weekend.

Two exciting things this week... one is a personal thing, but that I've been working on incredibly hard for the past six weeks.  With the help of Colleen, Mandy and Allie, my high school choirs have put together an amazing Broadway Revue that they will perform tomorrow night, Monday October 16th. T...

Holy cow. I can’t believe it’s almost the end of August!  It has been a fantastic month of shows… exhausting at times, but so much fun, with so many opportunities to play music!  I’ve had nine shows including some wonderful gigs at State Fair … thank you SO much to everyone who stopped out to rock with The Doghouse Charlie Band as well as at my solo shows.  State Fair gigs are awesome because so many people are able to come by and say hi while at the fair, and y’all

didn’t disappoint!

August has been filled with a lot of excitement… an awesome weekend up in Chippewa Falls relaxing in the Northwoods and drinking Leinenkugel beers with family, camping with my boyfriend and his amazing group of friends in Spring Green including a float on the Wisconsin River, my favorite festival of the year ---- Milwaukee Irish Fest, and three wonderful days of Show Choir Camp where my kick-butt group of kiddos learned all of their choreography for our fall Broadway Concert. (Be sure to check out...

Woah.  What an awesome weekend of shows! Thanks to everyone who came out Friday night to The Tap Room and Saturday to Rawson Pub.  I had such a blast playing and singing for you!

August is super crazy but has about a billion opportunities to catch a gig or ten.  Tomorrow night (Wednesday), I'm super stoked to be playing at St. Francis National Night Out and sharing the stage with the Doghouse Charlie Band!  I will do a set, then they will perform with the lovely and talented Sarah Anderson at the helm, I'll do a second set and we will round out the night with a combined, super-sonic, kick-butt, collaborative set.  Seriously.  You won't want to miss this.  Bring a cooler, snacks and lawn-chairs and come hang out.  You can even bring the kids to this one!  Bug spray recommended.  

Then.  Starting Thursday, I bring to you Wisconsin State Fair along with six once-in-a-lifetime opportunites to see me rock it on the Door County Fish Boil Stage.  They hav...

Happy Thursday, everyone! Thanks to all of you who came out to Gary’s two weeks ago...what an incredibly fun show.  Thanks to Kurt from The Fake Ids for sitting in on keys for some of my second set, and to Curtis for playing guitar with me on Rhiannon.  And, of course, thanks to everyone else who came out to hang out.  You guys were so fun I lost track of time and played for four hours...pretty sure the Irish whiskey helped. :)  I won’t be back at Gary’s until November, but rest assured, it’s going to be a lot of fun!

So I have a little bit of news to share.  When I left Random Maxx back in December, it was a tough decision with many different factors thrown into the mix, but ultimately it was just too overwhelming with my teaching schedule.  As I’ve embarked upon my solo music adventure, it has been more amazing and incredible than I could have ever expected.  I continue to gain more confidence in my own performance, I enjoy picking my own songs and adding my own little...

Oh hey there, everyone!  It seems like it’s been forever since I’ve sent out a news update… and it actually has been!  It has been quite the whirlwind of a summer so far… and it’s only mid-July!  Well - actually, mid-July means that my summer “vacation” halfway over and I’ll be gearing up to get back to work soon!  In the meantime, though, I want to reflect a little bit on my trip out to Colorado, as well as fill you in on some awesome gigs coming up in the next few weeks!

I am blessed to have had the amazing opportunity to spend two weeks out in Denver, a place that - after this trip - has become a place of comfort, stress-relief and relaxation.  I’ve been to Colorado before, but I’ve always brought work with me.  I’ve either visited mid-school year, when the work never ends, or I’ve visited in summer when it’s about time to go back to school.  This time, however, I was kind of forced to leave my work behind… literally.  We turn our work computers in at the end of every...

Happy Friday, everyone!  I had another great weekend of music, starting with Kaleigh and Tyler's Wedding last Saturday.  Thank you for having me be a part of your special day...your ceremony was beautiful, and the weather was gorgeous.  

Saturday night was a blast at Rawson Pub.  You were a small but mighty crowd, and I had a ton of fun.  A huge shout out to Jeff Allen and his bachelor party who showed up and partied for a bit.  Thanks to Jeff as well as Eric and Kyle from Failure to Launch for joining me on some tunes.  Best mash-up of Vanilla Ice/Under Pressure ever.  I was also fortunate enough to have the amazing and talented Ann Wieczorek join me on much of my second set. If you haven't met this girl, you really should - she is ridiculously talented.  Thanks once again to Brittney and Steve for having me...I love playing at the pub and I'll be back there again July 29th!

I stopped by Lindey's on Lake Beulah to sit in on a few tunes w...

Thanks so much to everyone who came to hang out with me at the Whitnall Park Beer Garden last Saturday!  It seriously was a blast and I had so much fun playing for everyone!  So many friends and familiar faces... and some amazing beer.  I even got the chance to debut my Disney Princess Medley... I think the adults enjoyed it more than the kids!

It's been a busy week, musically, so I'm gonna take a quick second to send some shout-outs to my wonderful kiddos.  We had some awesome field trip performances to other elementary schools within the district, and I also had a small group of kiddos perform for the 37th Annual 128th Airlift Refueling Wing Civic Dinner Dance at the airport, honoring our current members and veterans of the US Armed forces.  We are so blessed to have had the opportunity to participate in such a beautiful ceremony and celebration.  I love these kids and am so grateful to have them in my life!

Unfortunately, my gig at Juneau Beer Garden last night got...

Happy Thursday, everyone!  Thanks to everyone that came out to hang out with Failure to Launch and hear my sets last Saturday.  What a fun crowd! Thanks to Ken and the rest of the band for having me play between their sets.  It was truly a blast of a night!  I will be back at Rawson Pub solo on June 10th so make plans to come hang out and kick off summer with me!

This Saturday I'm super excited to be playing at Whitnall Park Beer Garden! It's supposed to be really nice out, and it's the perfect venue to come hang out, enjoy some beers, and listen to some music. You can even bring the kids... and I'm workin' on something specifically for the little ones, so they'll be entertained as well. Hope to see you Saturday!

Hey everyone!  Thanks to The Doghouse Charlie Band for asking me to come out and rock with them last Saturday night at The Tap Room in South Milwaukee!  It was a blast sitting in on some songs, as well as doing some of my own stuff!  

 

 I'll be joining them again next Saturday, March 4th at Richy's in Big Bend on keys as well as some vocals.  Should be a great evening!  

This weekend, I'm back at Gary's Wind Lake Boathouse for an all-acoustic set by yours truly.  I had a blast here last time splitting time with the Fake IDs and this time I'll be playing a solo show.  Come on out for great drinks, awesome food and some live music!
