FULL BAND SHOW!
Mark Schirmacher and Katy Tessman have a lot in common -- both are talented singer-songwriters, accomplished authors, cancer survivors, and they attended high school together in the 80s. Tonight, these storytellers will guide you on a diverse musical and emotional terrain. No doubt this event will feel a bit like a homecoming and a celebration of life.
Mark will perform an opening set, then Katy will join him for a couple duet tunes. Katy will then play a long set with her new band that includes her son, Sweet Lou on lead guitar, Thomas Leier on bass, and Aaron Gilles on percussion.
