High Noon Saloon presents:
The Mustache, Fresh Hops
701A E. Washington Ave
Madison, WI, 53703
This event is 18 and over
The Mustache is a seven piece funk juggernaut that features an outrageous stage show and a high level of testosterone-fueled musicianship from bass to brass, and everything in between to make you shake that ass.
They aim to present and preserve the funk sounds of the 70's and 80's with their original compositions and a few select covers.
Influences include James Brown, Rick James, Zapp and Roger, and of course, Tom Selleck.
Makin' it nasty is what they do, and they expect the same from you!
With a perfect balance of slow sexy numbers and zippy bass filled funk monsters, The Mustache delivers a show that is sure to bring out one's funky side. With a band consisting of highly trained musicians, the tunes are technical and performed with spot-on timing and precision. However, there is a lot more going on here than just the music. The Mustache is a traveling party! Their shows are as much about having a great time and interacting with their crowd as they are about the music. This becomes clear at first glance as front man "Wry Jazz" slams a beer with the audience before diving straight into the heavy funk. No matter where or when they play, they bring an enormous amount of energy to each and every song. Whether they're playing one of their own powerful originals from their always growing collection of songs or covering a tune from one of the funk greats, the music is always sure to please.

Fresh Hops is a 6-piece band from the Tri-Town Area of Northwest Indiana. The band has played over 400 shows in 9 different states. After 4 years of being together, their sound continues to evolve, as the fans and family continue to grow. Fresh Hops has created a love for the "live" show, incorporating the concept of "having fun" as the main idea. Each show is different, consisting of a mixture of creative originals, and catchy/crafty instrumental cover songs. Fresh Hops puts the emphasis on real music while blending their influences into something brand new. The band celebrates the rich history of each instrument playing bluegrass/classical songs through the violin, classic soul/jazz with the tenor sax, and heavy metal with distorted guitars. Somewhere along the way all the elements combine to create a truly unforgettable experience.
