About this event


Allen Wetzel is a published singer/song-writer, accomplished multi-instrumentalist, and live performance veteran who is perfectly at home on any stage.

Prior to forming the Big Al Wetzel band in 2008, Wetzel toured the country and the world full time for well over a decade with the legendary country rock act, Hello Dave, who began amassing a rabid cult fan-base in the early nineties by consistently dominating the thriving Chicago street festival scene. They soon found themselves doing several on air live performances for Chicago’s WGN TV morning news programs, XRT radio, and even a couple of the national anthem performances in front of 40,000+ Cubs fans at Wrigley Field.

Capitalizing on that momentum, Hello Dave began years of relentless touring, and went on to share the stage with major label country acts Zac Brown, Jake Owen, Keith Urban, Big and Rich, and Kenny Chesney, as well as rock acts REO Speedwagon, the Doobie Brothers, CCR, Huey Lewis, and Train to name a few. Wetzel has done seven world tours with Hello Dave in support of American troops, including performances in Iraq and the Middle East, Europe and the Mediterranean, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore.

Having always had the itch to form his own band, Wetzel relocated to South-Eastern Wisconsin in 2008 and teamed up with the extraordinary guitar and vocal talents of like-minded musician Jim Ryan to form “The Big Al Wetzel Band”. Wetzel and Ryan initially honed their show as an acoustic duo, but when the phone began ringing off the hook for larger events, they eventually enlisted a most venerable rhythm section of S.E. Wisconsin music scene stalwarts - Geoff Howard (bass and vocals) and Tim Rush (drums and vocals).

A FULL cash/credit BAR will be available and no carry in's permitted, BUT you can support your fav restaurant and bring dinner and enjoy the show!
