Nice Article about Ted in the Waunakee Tribune!
Ted Staege: He’s a drummer in a band
By Dee Wasylik Tribune Correspondent | Posted August 25 2017
It wasn’t until Ted Staege was in fourth grade that his family put down roots that took him and his three younger sisters through high school. Staege’s father worked for the U.S. Forest Service moving through the Upper and Lower Peninsula of Michigan until they settled in Laona, Wisconsin, two hours north of Green Bay.
In that small Wisconsin town, Staege’s graduating class was 38 students. He played baseball and basketball in high school, but his main love was and still is music...
What a blast we had when we returned to headline this great 4th of July Celebration! Had 'em Rockin' all night!

Greg Performs with Dan Navarro!
Our bass player Greg Percy (the guy in the blue shirt playing the bass) got the wonderful opportunity to play with national recording artist Dan Navarro (formerly of Lowen & Navarro) He wrote the hit song “We Belong” for Pat Benatar as well as numerous hits for Jackson Browne, Keb Mo,The Bangles and others. Greg has known him for awhile and jumped at the chance to join him for a show. Dan is usually a solo performer, but asked Greg to put together a band for a show at the Capital Brewery in July. Greg enlisted local guitarist David Hecht and drummer Greg Marsh and they filled a 3 hour show with great Navarro tunes and a few covers here and there. An absolute blast on a fun summer night.
