MAMA Cares was formed in 2015 as a result of a benefit event to raise funds for the Robert J. Conaway family, who faced steep medical bills after their son became gravely ill. Since its formation, MAMA Cares has worked to raise funds to provide health care assistance for Madison area musicians in need.

The Rousers have been rocking audiences for over 25 years. A Madison " must see" when they play. Frank( Harmonica, vocals), Ernie ( Guitar, Vocals), Don (Keyboard), Radar ( Bass, Vocals) and Lee ( Drums) have a high energy sound that is all their own. Known for their Original songs like "Cheatin' and Drinkin', and" Ride Free or Die" and some great covers of bands like The Beatfarmers, The Blasters, and more.

Honor Among Thieves: After twenty-five years, five CDs, an LP,and a 45, the members of Honor Among Thieves still
draw a blank whenever someone asks, what kind of music do you play? Blues roots are unmistakable, but the line up of guitar, bass, drums, and
violin, and musical flourishes that stray into klezmer, jazz, funk and beyond confound true blues devotees. They have amassed a wealth of creative material and wield it with passion and spontaneity that makes each performance unique and has allowed Honor Among
Thieves to remain one of Madison's most revered bands for nearly a generation

The Lower 5th incorporates folk, rock, R&B, reggae, country and bluegrass to produce a unique blend of Midwestern Soul that swings, sways, rocks, and wails. Luke Jorgensen, Cory Swadley (The Northern Pines) and Paul Metz(The Mascot Theory) began to work together to write and perform songs that draw from and build upon their common diverse musical roots. With the addition of Josh Smith (Eugene Smiles Project) Jeremy Henning (Trombone) and Audrey Pescatelli (bass), The Lower 5th is a band of powerhouse musicians that play high energy music from the heart and leave it all on stage with every performance. The band has performed in many venues in Madison and across central Wisconsin including featured sets at The Wiskeyonsin Family Reunion, Ragged Roots, Bandit County Fair, Madison Charity Jamboree, Lands End Summer Concert Series, Between the Waves Music Festival, radio and television performances as well as bi weekly residency at The Up North Bar. The Lower 5th has also performed support for national acts including Boyd Tinsley of the Dave Matthews Band, Gangsta Grass, and The Railsplitters.
