We're featured in Milwaukee Magazine!

Milwaukee Magazine chose as our song “Comin’ Round to Get You” from our first full length album Autumn Rest Easy as one of the “10 of the Best Wisconsin Road Trip Songs” alongside artists like Steve Miller Band, Bon Iver, Talking Heads and The Lumineers. We’re honored to be included in the list!

“Farewell Milwaukee is a band from … Minneapolis. But still, they get Midwestern credit, and we appreciate the name. This is a nice dose of modern folksy tuneage to gas up the musical tank. This song is especially fitting for the early evening hours, when the sun is setting and the driving gets quiet.”

Mid West Music Fest Show Cancelled

Dear friends,

I'm terribly sorry to say that I (Ben) picked up a cold early this week and lost my voice. Our plan was to push through and play the Mid West Music Festival in La Crosse tonight, but without a voice it's just not possible.

Our roots go deep in La Crosse and Winona and this festival is one of our favorite things about living in the Midwest; this decision was a painful one. We are truly sorry we won't be able to make it but hope to see you soon. 

Winona and La Crosse Shows Cancelled

Dear friends in Winona and La Crosse (and all other friends who were planning on attending the shows this weekend),

We are bummed to announce that we are going to have to cancel our upcoming shows at Ed's (no name) Bar and the Root Note because Ben has been hit with the flu. We are saddened to have to do this - this is the first time we've ever had to cancel a show! BUT we want to always be able to give you 100% when we perform. You can still catch Crystal City and Afflatus at Ed's and Crystal City again at the Root Note.

Send Ben some get well wishes and catch us again soon. We'll be performing in St. Paul on February 16th for the Films at the Fitz series, and have more shows in the works. Continue to check our show calendar for more details and thanks for understanding!

Rented Rooms is a non-traditional love letter to Ben's dad while he explores how to be one. Visit Ben's website to learn more. We're so excited for him! 

"Rented Rooms is a love letter. Not a love letter in the traditional sense. Not a handwritten note or a postcard, but an exploration of my new found realization of love..."
