Concerts at the Playhouse are very special and unlike anything you❜ve experienced anywhere else. There are a number of reasons for this.
The Playhouse is an intimate 64 seat theatre where no one is further than 20 feet from the stage. If you❜re lucky enough to get in the front row you are literally 4 feet away!
The acoustics are spectacular and the sound system top notch. This isn❜t just us talking. It❜s what performers who❜ve played there have told us. It was described by one group as the best acoustical venue they❜ve been in.
Combine that with a state of the art LED lighting system complete with moving head fixtures and the vibrant colors only LEDs can provide and you have an experience that is a complete acoustical and visual experience.
Leap Day 2.0!
There is something special about 2020, and no, it is not because of anything to do with politics or sports, but Joe 2.0 in concert!
JOE 2.0 was founded in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 2011, by violinist, Joseph Ketchum.
JOE 2.0 was formed to see if a string quartet could playrock and pop music in a powerful and non-lame way.
JOE 2.0 is comprised of an electrified string quartet (2 Violins, Viola, and Cello), plus drums and the inimitable vocals of original ❝Cheap Trick❞ lead singer, Xeno.
JOE 2.0 uses painstakingly crafted analogue effects on the strings to emulate the sounds of electric guitars, keyboards, bass, horns, and other instruments.
JOE 2.0 blends these sounds with the natural sound of the strints,
creating a rock/pop sound with a symphonic power to it.
It❜s like a rock band and orchestra had a baby, and they called it ❝JOE 2.0❞.
A ❝Rockestra❞ if you will. More about the group and promo video here
