Imaginary Watermelon is an alternative folk-rock group based in Madison, and is comprised of 4 stellar musicians plucked from some of Madison’s favorite bands; Dana Perry on guitar and vocals (SHESHE, Royal Jelly), Jenna Joanis on drums and percussion (Color Me Once, formerly Sexy Ester), Maggie Richardson on bass (Supervillain Fire Drill), and Ellie Erickson on lead guitar (Sigourney Weavers, Croaker, Shotgun Mary). They play an equal mix of original and cover songs, with an effortless groove that is sure to captivate listeners of all kinds.
The Lower 5th incorporates folk, rock, R&B, reggae, country and bluegrass to produce a unique blend of Midwestern Soul that swings, sways, rocks, and wails. Luke Jorgensen, Cory Swadley (The Northern Pines) and Paul Metz (The Mascot Theory) began to work together to write and perform songs that draw from and build upon their common diverse musical roots. With the addition of Josh Smith (Eugene Smiles Project) Jeremy Henning (Trombone) and Audrey Pescatelli (bass), The Lower 5th is a band of powerhouse musicians that play high energy music from the heart and leave it all on stage with every performance.
