Billy Krause Trio to Perform June 26
for UW-Eau Claire's Music on the Mall

RELEASED: June 14, 2006

Bill Krause TrioEAU CLAIRE — The Billy Krause Trio will present a free outdoor concert Monday, June 26, at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.

The Music on the Mall show will run from 7 to 9 p.m. on the Central Campus Mall. Refreshments will be sold. Audience members are invited to bring blankets or folding chairs for lawn seating. Refreshments will be sold, and popcorn is free.

The three-man acoustic group performs both familiar and obscure, but always enjoyable, non-mainstream music. Billy Krause, Chuck Roll and Mike Quick are veteran musicians who have worked for over 30 years in many formats — as solo artists, in small ensembles, and in table-thumping electric roadhouse bands. Their music covers ragtime, older standards, traditional blues and originals, as well as island and contemporary folk styles. A Fats Waller tune may be followed by a song written by John Prine, Van Morrison or John Hiatt. Vintage jug-band music may segue into a tune from The Grateful Dead.

The Jazz at Noon series concludes with shows by the John Raymond Combo (Monday-Tuesday), the Josh Gallagher Group (Wednesday), and the Randy Pingrey Combo (Thursday-Friday) from noon to 1 p.m. on the Central Campus Mall. A variety of grilled lunch items will be sold.

Presented every weekday in June, Jazz at Noon features UW-Eau Claire student combos coordinated by Steven Hobert.

Summer Session Programs continue through Aug. 6. A complete schedule is available from the Activities and Programs office, Davies Center 133, (715) 836-4833, or on the Web.
