LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) – Western Wisconsin has a vibrant live music scene.
Among the better known bands one calls itself Them Coulee Boys.
Their new album, Die Happy, came out a couple weeks ago and their new music is starting to draw bigger crowds.
“There’s a buzz right now, and it feels good,” said singer/songwriter Soren Staff.
As Them Coulee Boys’ popularity continues to grow, they recognize how important the small town Wisconsin music scene is.
“The local music scenes in La Crosse, Eau Claire, all these other small town Wisconsin ones, I think it’s a testament to those scenes that they’re so welcoming and wonderful,” said banjo and piano player Beau Janke.
As the band climbs the ladder of success, they know that Western Wisconsin will be there to hold the ladder in place.
So many questions about the future but to simply put it,
“We’re so happy to be in a position where we can play music as a job,” Staff said.
The tour of their new album starts on Friday in Michigan. After traveling around the east coast, they will be back in the Coulee Region in October.
