The 10th annual CONNECT at Bernheim is right around the corner! Music is a vital part of the fun and funkiness that makes CONNECT so special, and this year’s group of musicians does not disappoint.
We are excited to have a special performance by Adam and Sarah from the popular regional band, Murder by Death. On the surface, Murder By Death is a Bloomington, IN quintet with a wry, ominous name. But behind the geography and moniker is a band of meticulous and literary songwriters matched by a specific brand of brooding, anthem-riding balladry and orchestral indie rock. What resonates most with supporters is the band’s energetic, unique, and altogether consistent sound and conceptualized vision. We will be treated to Sarah Balliet’s throaty cello melodies and singer/guitarist Adam Turla’s booming baritone vocals and brawny guitar strumming for this rare performance.
Bill “The Sauce Boss” Wharton is a Florida swamp-funk slide guitarist. On his 1989 New Years Eve gig, Sauce Boss splashed a bottle of his Liquid Summer Hot Sauce into a huge pot of simmering gumbo, feeding the entire audience. The rest is history. 200,000 bowls later, he’s still serving gumbo at his shows. His CONNECT gumbo will use produce straight from Bernheim’s own Edible Garden.
Juanita is Louisville’s own long-running exuberant collective celebration of the joys of garage rock.
