How do artists get featured?
Rupert Wates
August, 2017 - "Our capacity audience at The Ruin was once again treated to the beautiful music and storytelling of Rupert Wates. His talent is undeniable and we so enjoy hosting him. Rupert is a welcome guest in our home and, having hosted him twice, we consider him a friend! If you have the opportunity to have Rupert play a house concert for you-do it!! You and you audience will be the better for it!"
(S. Acrich)

Dan O'Sullivan
August, 2017 - "Dan's mastery of the guitar was so evident as he entertained our capacity audience at The Ruin. Our audience enjoyed his storytelling and playing and even had an opportunity to sing along on one of is original songs! Dan was an easy guest in our home-sharing opinions on the music and songwriters of our "youth!" We really enjoyed hosting Dan!"
(S. Acrich)

McLeod Nine
August, 2017 - "Wow! What fun we had on the patio last night! Christy and Gordon are such incredible people, such incredible musicians, and man can Gordon make the music rise above the trees! Everyone enjoyed the night and gave much praise to the fun Gypsy, Swingy, Funky, Folky Down Home Music! Having everyone join in to sing and shake their egg shakers just made the night! We must have you back again! We must! Love you Christy and Gordon!"
(T. Vaughn)

Brian Keith Wallen
August, 2017 - "Brian brings a laid back easy going personality to the stage that shows his small town roots. He engages well with his audiences, tells the stories to support his music and his guitar skills make everyone lean in to listen and watch. He plays great original blues, and brings you back to days gone by with some great classic covers of blues, country,rock&roll. Ask him to share his Blue Grass Skills as they go unmentioned unless you request them. Definitely a performer you want to see again!"
(K. Rittinger)

Dan Weber
August, 2017 - "I cannot overstate how much our audience enjoyed Dan's recent performance for our series. Dan's songwriting is engaging and he's an excellent musician. But where his genius truly lies is in his ability to connect and uplift an audience. I've rarely seen a group of people so thoroughly enjoying and identifying with a performer -- and I've attended many, many live performances. We will look forward to seeing Dan on Badger Mountain again next year."
(D. Bruce)

Natalie Gelman
August, 2017 - "Natalie is a charming and engaging talent! Really interacts well with the crowd and keeps them engaged. Can't wait for her new album and look forward to everyone appreciating her work as much as we do! Will have her back for sure!"
(C. Zimmer)

Matt Bednarsky
August, 2017 - "It was an absolute pleasure having Matt perform at my inaugural house concert on the prairie! Matt is an engaging performer and impressed us all with the wisdom that seems beyond his years. He was gracious enough to answer all the questions that guests had of him and of his songwriting and performing lifestyle. We look forward to watching him evolve as a musician and artist."
(M. Mose)

Bruce Mandel
August, 2017 - "Bruce was a wonderful performer for our outdoor/prairie view concert. His songs are deeply personal and elicited many emotions (and questions!) from the audience. It was a pleasure getting to know Bruce and I hope to host him again someday."
(M. Mose)

Mark Croft
August, 2017 - "Mark was an absolute delight at our concert on the prairie. His songs run the gamut...from love songs to a bawdy Irish tune. His vocal, guitar, and songwriting skills are all evident. Plus, he had the best back stories about his songs and how he came to write them. All very funny. It was a very engaging evening."
(M. Mose)

Kelly&Ellis
August, 2017 - "Kelly and Ellis performed for my very first home concert in honor of my music-loving best friend and husband, Bob. They were wonderful. Memorable evening and a great way to kick off this musical journey. They performed an amazing show with upbeat & heartfelt songs & great music! They shared their rich musical history with songs and humor. Those who attended thoroughly enjoyed it. I highly recommend booking them, you will be glad you did. They are gracious, humble individuals. Not to be missed!!"
(J. Procko-Drozd)
