Horicon Phoenix Program is proud and pleased to announce that The Blackfoot Gypsies from Nashville, TN are the first confirmed act for the 2017 Jersey Street Music Festival.

Work has already begun on Dodge County's "Jersey Street Music Festival", held annually in Discher Park, Horicon over the third weekend in June. Looking to build off of 2016's success and striving to continue to build its reputation as one of the best music festivals in Wisconsin, Horicon Phoenix Program has decided to expand the event to three days in 2017, with opening day on Thursday, June 15th, 2017.

This will be the first in a series of articles designed to build excitement about the event and to introduce readers to the world-class performers that will be coming to Dodge County from all around the US.

The Blackfoot Gypsies have created a place that dreamers, night flyers, and adventure seekers can gather and embrace the triumphant harmony of spirit and music ­ made by humans, for humans.

With 4 years, 4 releases, and countless miles under their belt as a 2 piece band, Zack Murphy and Matthew Paige have called on fellow brethren Dylan Whitlow (bass) and Ollie Dogg (harmonica) to join forces and help expand their already wide spectrum of American music. The upcoming release of the band's second full length LP, Handle It, serves as the debut of The Blackfoot Gypsies as a full­force four piece band.

Infusing the honest roots of blues and the deep secrets of real country music, The Blackfoot Gypsies create a rock 'n' roll pace and angst that keep your heart alive, all while pounding to a true Nashville beat. The swirling vortex of their records and live show welcome you into a world where linking arms with friends and strangers keeps your head far above the clouds. In a world where all too often "music" is made simply to keep the masses happy, the Gypsies make music you can believe in, not just fall for.

The Blackfoot Gypsies will be the headliner on Friday, June 16th, 2017. More information on the band can be found at http://www.blackfootgypsies.com

The Jersey Street Music Festival is a *FREE* event graciously funded by the donations of generous music supporters in Wisconsin, and by many of Wisconsin's finest businesses including the Horicon Phoenix Program, Horicon Bank, Moraine Park Technical College, and Capital Brewery of Middleton among many others. Sponsorship information may be obtained by sending a note of inquiry to info@horiconphoenix.com
