on the Brickl Bros Stage

Hans Mayer plays infectious, catchy, acoustic based original music with a slice of swing, a tinge of blue-grass, and a little bit of soul. Hans’ CDs include songs with guitar, bass, mandolin and Native American flute. Hans’ eight award-winning albums for families are hits with both kids and their parents. In 2007 his “Funny Little Creatures” CD was selected as a Parents’ Choice Foundation Approved Title and as a 2008 Children’s Music Web Award Winner. In 2009 his CD for kids, It’s Our World: the Green Album, was selected as a Parents’ Choice Foundation Recommended Title and as a CD of the Year by the Creative Child Magazine Toy Awards.

In addition to children’s music, Mayer has toured and recorded with Native American recording artist Bill Miller, appearing on the Today Show, Austin City Limits, the World Cafe and the PBS special “Songs of the Spirit”. Miller and Mayer have opened for top acts including Willie Nelson, Tori Amos, Pearl Jam and the BoDeans.”You Are The Rain”, a song co-written by Mayer and Miller, was selected for the soundtrack of the Rick Schroder independent film “Black Cloud”

on the Brickl Bros Stage

Since 1947, the Coulee Chordsmen have introduced and sustained barbershop a cappella singing to audiences throughout Western Wisconsin.

Each year the chorus presents twelve to fifteen performances in churches, schools, business events, and fund raisers. While barbershop harmony is our focus, gospel, jazz, do wop, country, and folk music are also a part of many concerts.

Singing is our hobby. We rehearse every week.  We value the joy of singing and ringing chords in four-part harmony. Fellowship and friendships are important to us and as a non-profit organization, service to others through our music is a key aspect of our many programs.

Please take a few minutes to explore our electronic home. We look forward to seeing you at one of our many performances.  In addition, gentlemen if you like to sing we hope you will visit us during a Tuesday Night rehearsal at the Harry J Olson Center, 1607 North Street.
