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.
Admission: Adults $13, Seniors $12, Youth $6
