2022 Concert Season

4/29/2022 – Dan Tyminski Band with special guests The Hammer & The Hatchet at Mike’s Music and Dance Barn in Nashville, IN. This show will always be one of my favorite life memories. My 9 year old son worked with me at the show, my best friends, Jayme and John of The Hammer & The Hatchet, got to open for the legendary Dan Tyminski Band. To top it all off, Dan Tyminski and his wife were so incredibly kind and fun to be around! It was a night of amazing music where even the opening act, The Hammer & The Hatchet, received a standing ovation. Then they got called back on stage for an encore… as the opening act! I’ve never seen the opening band get an encore before! It was truly a magical night!

5/13/2022 – A Night with Eddie Heinzelman with special guests, Kade Puckett plus Carpenter & Clerk at Stable Studios. Eddie often tours with Radney Foster, but on this night, we were treated with a solo show from Eddie! Full of emotion and songs from the heart, Eddie put on an unforgettable concert! Before Eddie took the stage, we were regaled with the witty music of Carpenter & Clerk. Their story telling is just as entertaining as their beautifully woven songs. Then Kade Puckett set the stage a blaze with his lighting fast finger picking, playful guitar style and smile that melts hearts!

5/20/2022-5/22/2022 – The 2022 Twanger Plunker Family Reunion! “A Vaudevillian Carnival in Wonderland!” The 2022 Twanger Plunker Family Reunion, Returned to Wonderland! The Twanger Plunkers are the Midwest Merry Prankster family that meets each year to celebrate life through music, art, dance and light shows!

This event is always extra special because it’s more than a festival. It’s a reunion of Merry Pranksters, from all over the world, gathered to create a safe space to be authentically you, without barriers or expectations, just be who you are and know that you are loved! This communal offering of our authentic selves, creates a magic that transcends time and space. Most festivals are consumer based experiences. You go, you consume the experience of the music, lights and art. Then you go home, having consumed that experience that was built by other people. By contrast, the reunions are created by the efforts of the community, using the talents, skills, passions and energies of the very people there to also consume the experience. People often ask, “how do I become a Twanger Plunker?” The answer, “You already are!”

The reunion has occurred in a few different locations, but in 2022, we returned to the place where it all began, Wonderland! At this reunion we heard from a truly incredible lineup! John Welton & the Awakening, Zu Zu Ya Ya, Phree, a tribute to Phish, Kade Puckett plus Kade’s side project Lunar Bob & The Space Americans. The lineup for Lunar Bob was John Welton, Kade Puckett, and the members of The Awakening! This was a mind blowing treat of musical twists and turns that made me grin from ear to ear, like the Cheshire cat! Check out the photos below! Roger Bash played an afternoon set that left us all smiling! We also heard from the always incredible, Ty Connally! With the incredible Liquid Lights of Jeff Lowe, the entire weekend became a visual treat that dazzled our eyes, hearts and minds!
