in a peaceful, countryside setting. Audience members should bring their lawn
chairs, and any picnic style snacks they’d like. We ask for no beverage carry-ins, as there will be a bar available. Settle in and enjoy the sunset while experience live music like we've never offered before! Only 30 tickets are available for each show.

The members of Harmonious Wail are purveyors of Americana-infused Gypsy Jazz, who continue to take their listeners on a ride via the music of the Hot Club sounds of Parisian cafes, to the deepest blues of the Memphis Delta, to the heartfelt folk scenes across every-town-America. This harmonious clique are sublime entertainers, great educators, and lifters of spirits.
Harmonious Wail is a trio of multi-award winning musicians. Sims Delaney-Potthoff, a mandolin virtuoso, and vocalist, Maggie Delaney-Potthoff, vocalist extraordinaire, whose percussive instrument of choice is a cardboard box (but who can also rock almost any household object), and Jeffo Weiss, a master bassist who dazzles and mesmerizes on both upright and electric 5-string bass.
As stewards of the Gypsy Jazz genre, they have established the Midwest Gypsy Swing Fest, held twice a year in Madison, Wisconsin. They also offer to take the fest on the road as a special concert package. They have mastered a plan on how to bring amazing Gypsy Jazz All Stars from around the world, and place them in front of concert audiences throughout the United States.
"In the gypsy jazz field, no one does it any better than the Madison, Wisconsin based group Harmonious Wail.” -Jazz Review
To help keep everyone as safe as possible, things might look a little different than your typical outdoor concert. Although wearing a mask during the outdoor performance is optional (but encouraged), patrons will be required to wear one during the temperature screening at check-in. Check out all of our outdoor series’ Wellness Initiative here. Thank you for understanding and for your continued support of the Thrasher Opera House!
