“Music that recalls the authenticity and musicianship of "Roots" Music”
— Kenneth Marks, Hannibal's Big River festival
The Midnight Wanderers
Coming together 6 years ago among a shared love of bluegrass, blues, folk and classic country, The Midnight Wanderers have honed their chops playing festivals to bars. Each member brings a unique fresh take on the americana sound, Jenny’s driving bass lines and song arrangements and vocals, Matt with tasty banjo and guitar licks, combine well with Thad's high lonesome fiddle sound. Newest memebers, Joel Grenemeier rounds out the sound with his mandolin chop and vocals while Colten Welch throws in his fire fast licks on guitar. With all members trading lead and harmony vocals to keep the sound dynamic and fun. They’ve recently branched into songwriting creating new songs with that familiar feeling audiences have come to love. Listening to the Midnight Wanderers leaves you happy like a warm summer afternoon. With songs curated from so many genres including classic rock, Western swing, country and bluegrass there's something for everyone.
The Midnight Wanderers have made their way around to festivals like Grand island music Series, Blue Moon Festival, Applegrass, Harvest Ale, Feast on the Farm, Big River Steampunk festival, Soaring Wings Harvest festival, the Plainsong festival, BFF Femme Fest and competed and took first in the band competition at the Tallgrass Festival. They also had the honor of recording tracks for the Friday’s Live on NET Radio.
