Blue Dream and Atlas on Strike Set The Stage

Atlas On Strike opened up the night with a high energy performance that set the tone for Fund Drive this week at The Pub in Whitewater.  A three piece band with plenty of energy to go around, they brought the rock out of the garage and shared it with an enthusiastic crowd during the fist of two sets last night.  Erick Atwell’s drumming provided a steady pounding groove for Jack Sibilski to weave his guitar sounds and emotive vocals to while Matt Trunk laid it down on bass.  It was great way to kick off the first of five nights for 91.7 The Edge’s annual fund drive with five nights of free live music at the Pub in downtown Whitewater.

91.7 The Edge would like to thank Blue Dream and Atlas On Strike for such great performances.  We look forward to hearing The Brothers Quinn who will be on stage tonight at 10pm with an Americana mix of roots music including blues, rock, old time country and even hip-hip.  An acoustic based band with a twist.  We’ll see you there.
