The String Showdown consists of multi-instrumentalists Mike Lauer (previously with George Maurer and Bobby Vee) and Greg Byers (previously with Kat Perkins and Trans-Siberian Orchestra) who face off in The String Showdown! As a dueling string duo, Mike and Greg will rock with a mishmash of your favorite hits from radio, TV, and movies encouraging the audience to clap, dance and sing along. You’ll be amazed at their instrumental skills while you crack up at their irreverent, family-friendly humor. This show features a perfect blend of audience involvement, comedy, and “musical magic” crafted to entertain all ages.  

The Alley Katz, a popular local teen classic rock band with members coming from Adams-Friendship, Baraboo, and Wisconsin Dells, will open the show. Their specialty is 60’s- 70’s classic rock with some 50’s and 80’s thrown in just for fun, which is sure to get the crowd fired up. Sergey, Vadzim, Bo, and Gavin started playing together at Mojo Music five years ago and to date have played primarily in the Dells and surrounding area. 

Find out why The String Showdown is the Midwest’s hottest blend of musicianship and entertainment and why they have been labeled, "Easily one of the top improvising string duos on the planet today." This fun and safe event will be a great way to enjoy entertainment locally and support the A-F Area Educational Foundation.
