The Big Payback w/ Mad City Funk
Saturday, April 25, 9:30pm
Crystal Corner Bar
1302 Williamson st, Madison
$7 cover, ages 21+

Our friends in Mad City Funk are opening the show, and we expect to hit the stage at 11:45. You know it's always a party at the Crystal! 

See you there?


Tomorrow, we begin our 3-night run of performances at the Mt Horeb High School Viking Band Show. We will be playing a few songs by ourselves, as well as two of our originals with the Mt Horeb High School combined bands. Those two songs are "Lookin' at Me" and a new one, "Power to Let Go."

We've had something of a residency at Mt Horeb High School for the past month. We've been splitting up into small groups and working with students on their music as well as our music. It has been such a pleasure to meet and share ideas with these talented kids. We're very excited for everything to culminate in these performances!

After that, look for us at the Crystal Corner in Madison on Saturday, April 25. We'll be sharing the stage with our friends in Mad City Funk, and it's going to be great time!

Be well,


Madison's FIRST Annual Long John Party
w/ The Big Payback
Saturday, February 28
Harmony Bar (2201 Atwood Ave)

9:30pm- 1:30am

Celebrate the nearing end of winter by partying with The Big Payback in your long johns! Union suites, butt flaps, waffle textured cotton, leggings, footies, and off-white colored duds are all encouraged. The uglier, the better!

The annual Long John Party has been a winter celebration in the Jamie Kember household for years, and now it's time to make it a Madison tradition! Go ahead and show up with your normal clothes on over your long johns. We'll be shedding layers and cranking out the tunes as the night goes on! Entertainment includes The Big Payback and a DJ between sets.


Look how happy this guy is! This could be you!

Don't be shy, Madison. See you there!



Hey all,

We hope your 2015 is shaping up to be a great year! 2014 went out with a bang for us at the New Year's Eve party at the Edgewater. If you were there, you know what kind of a party it was. If you missed it, we're truly sorry.

We've got big plans for the new year. Dates are being negotiated and confirmed as we speak, so stay hip to the shows page on our website. Here's a rundown on the next few gigs:

January 31- "A Taste of Jazz" at Mt. Horeb Middle School, 6:30- 8:30 pm
February 11- Opening for Hood Smoke at the Frequency in Madison, 9- 11 pm
February 13- Headlining show at Hard Rock Café in Chicago, 11:30 pm- 12:30 am

In addition to performances this year, we plan to record our second full-length CD. We've got new material ready to go, and it's just asking to be recorded!

We'll leave you with a cool shot from the New Year's gig. Cheers!
