Sweet Dreams & Honky Tonks


APR 22, 2017

The music and lives of Hank Williams, Loretta Lynn, Patsy Cline, and Johnny Cash.

It may be impossible to crown any one performer as country music’s biggest star, but few would argue that Hank Williams, Loretta Lynn, Patsy Cline, and Johnny Cash would all be near the top of any list. Each broke barriers and changed country and popular music forever. Sweet Dreams & Honky Tonks is a new revue that presents the best loved hits of these classic artists along with stories of their colorful lives and amazing careers.

Sweet Dreams & Honky Tonks stars two Wisconsin music veterans: Tom Waselchuk has performed for over three decades, sometimes juggling multiple projects, but always keeping one foot planted firmly in country music. Mr. Waselchuk is a singer and song writer, and plays guitar, bass and pedal steel guitar. Lindsey Juarez is a dynamic singer and a consummate performer. She’s sung just about every style of popular music, performing in scores of revues with her sister duo The Giese Girls and as a soloist, starring in the Fabulous Fifties Live! show in Wisconsin Dells for five seasons, and as lead vocalist on Holland America and Celebrity Cruises for four years.

The back up band for Sweet Dreams & Honky Tonks is The Dang-Its, a group Mr. Waselchuk founded in 1998, featuring Mark Luhring on drums, Matt Rodgers on bass, Rick Nass on pedal steel guitar, and Doug Brown on violin, banjo and guitar. The Dang-Its were named 2013 Country/Bluegrass Performer of the Year by the Madison Area Music Awards, and their most recent recording, A Lick of Sense, was named the MAMAs 2014 Country Bluegrass Album of the Year.

Join us for a night of good ol’ country!
