The Big Wu
The story goes that the Big Wu, bound for rock stardom, sold their souls for a case of Old Style beer one thirsty night long ago. The legend and the band live on. Still rocking their powerful, moving, and energizing original music for the fans. A jam band with a unique style and presence, the Wu combine strong, free flowing improv and vocal harmonies, with finely crafted songs for all tastes. Oh, and their fans are famously friendly.

Gregg Hall and the Wrecking Ball

GHWB originates from the historic rivertown/musical mecca LaCrosse, WI. Gregg Hall, founder of Deece Productions, has been a staple in the Midwest music scene for over a decade with his bands Mitgee Evers, Smokin’ Bandits, The Feelin Band, and outlaw country Minnesota legends the White Iron Band. Gregg Hall and the Wrecking Ball is his first solo project getting back to his country life style roots and back woods upbringing. This band features some of the best musicians southwestern WI has to offer featuring: Gregg Hall (guitar, vocals), Laun Braithwiate (guitar, vocals), Matt Mahlum (drums), Dedrick Benz (bass), Dan Kimpel (pedal steel, mandolin), and Jonny Peterson (keyboards). GHWB is just good Ol’ American country music. Buy our albums “This, That, and the Land” and “The Mrs. Hippy Sessions” at and on Spotify and iTunes.
