The Band:

Vaudeville combines rock, electronic, and experimental elements to create a driving, addictive, and unarguably distinct sound that has catapulted them into the spotlight in recent years. Current members Christopher Gummeson (vocals/keyboards), Chris Schara (lead guitar/vocals), A.J. Sugar (rhythm guitar), Timmy Kosel (bass/vocals), and John "Jimbo" Olson (drums), together create a unique sound that has earned them an ever-increasing name in the Midwest's music industry. After releasing their second album Vendetta at the Fine Line Cafe in 2012, their popularity began to quickly rise both locally and beyond. Vaudeville shared the main stage at Rock Fest in Cadot, WI, last July with musical legends Slash, KISS, Megadeth, and more, and have also played alongside other renowned acts, including The Meat Puppets, Forever the Sickest Kids, Never Shout Never, and Throw the Fight.


Vaudeville will be performing at Rock Fest in July of this year, as well as another festival in August yet to be announced.
