FIRESIDE TUNES on The Lakely Patio with D.Janakey

Tuesday, May 24, 2022

This brand new event, dubbed Fireside Tunes, is meant to capture the essence of some of our most-loved experiences – spending the evening outside on The Patio with folks we care about, listening to live music in a down-to-earth, low-key (but high-vibe) atmosphere, sipping craft drinks, and sharing a love of music – all around our stone-cut fire pits.

D.Janakey’s impassioned folk music & metaphysical hymns are the odd synthesis of irreverent Country & Western and Spiritual music you didn’t know you needed, and might not even want. Drawing comparisons to Prine, Yusuf Cat Stevens, Daniel Johnston, and Paul Simon, these are songs that ring with light and obscurity, they breath, and sway, and then float away.

Away from music, Janakey is a seasoned tree pruner, DIY show organizer, lousy gardener, and crummy fisherman but keeps on trying anyways. D.Janakey has shared the stage with Dave Simmonette of Trampled by turtles, Mason Jennings, Ezra Bell, as well as local favorites, Them Coulee Boys.”

At Fireside Tunes, you can expect an emotive musical experience of local, regional, and occasionally touring artists with a strong lean towards acoustic, folk, and Americana styles.

In recent years, the duo has expanded to include a backing band of up to four additional musicians.

Grossman and Hart live on a rural homestead in Southwestern Wisconsin. They tour frequently throughout the Midwest and beyond. They are a favorite headlining act at festivals including Mile of Music, Fox Valley Folk Festival, and the Minnesota Bluegrass and Old Time Association.

Multi-instrumentalists playing guitar, banjo, ukulele, harmonica, melodica and percussion, these artists will take you from folk to country to bluegrass to blues to Latin jazz and back again. A 2021 compilation of seven of Mario’s songs arranged for Big Band Jazz in Janet Planet’s “Under the Venus Moon” was recognized on the Grammy Ballot 2021 under the category Best Vocal Jazz Album.

Mario was produced and published by Buzz Cason, Creative Workshop Studio, Nashville, TN and signed to Universal Records in 1971 as a member of White Duck, Jimmy Buffet’s first Coral Reefer Band, along with legendary Americana artist John Hiatt. Sherry is a lifelong music educator and church music director.
