The Heyde Center is pleased to welcome back Bernie King and the Guilty Pleasures to Chippewa Falls. A little bit blues, a little bit bluegrass, a little bit rock, and a little bit kitchen sink – a style of music that some fans have come to call “blues-grass.” You'll hear some great original songs inspired by the styles of Shane McGowan, Johnny Cash, The Rolling Stones, and Bill Monroe. Bernie King and the Guilty Pleasures came into being in early 2010 when they put together a group for a local jug band contest. The synergy between original members Bernie King, Julie King, Matt Smith, and John Kurtis Dehn was so natural and right that they decided to keep on making great music as a band. The band has dominated Reverbnation’s bluegrass category sitting in the #1 spot 2014, 2015, and 2016. With a rough and tumble mix of guitar, banjo, mandolin, bass, washboard, snare drum, and accordion Bernie King and the Guilty Pleasures are exactly what the doctor ordered. Dancing is optional, but Bernie and the gang will make it hard to sit still.

On his latest album Goldmine, released on his own Bayou Boys label, Anderson has completed a long overdue record of original songs. Goldmine is also a record that, given the current state of contemporary country, could, like Cash and Haggard recordings, find a home amid lovers of authentic music of any genre.

Come enjoy music from 7:30PM - 10:00PM! Brett Newski will open for the Violent Femmes. Violent Femmes formed in 1981 as an acoustic punk band playing on the streets of Milwaukee. Their main influences at that time were Gene Vincent and the Blue Caps, and The Velvet Underground. Their goal was to rock harder than any other acoustic act on the planet. They were rejected for an audition by a local nightclub and set up outside a Pretenders gig. Chrissie Hynde asked them to open that night's show. This gave the early Femmes a publicity boost which led to them being invited to play in NYC supporting Richard Hell. A rave review in the New York Times led eventually to a record deal, which in turn spawned worldwide touring.
Their eponymous first album became the first and only album in Billboard history to enter the charts as a platinum album, eight years after its release. The Femmes became a mainstay of festivals, clubs and theatres in over 30 countries worldwide in the ensuing three decades. MTV's "Unplugged" show was inspired by the Femmes, although they never actually appeared on it. Their raw sound and honest lyrical perspective has been cited as an influence by artists as diverse as Pink, Keith Urban, The Smiths, Nirvana, Lou Reed, John Cusack, Mark Morris, and Wim Wenders. Violent Femmes are currently touring in commemoration of the thirtieth anniversary of the release of their first album
