Spirits were high Saturday night at La Crosse Distilling Co., as Them Coulee Boys packed the house for an intimate performance. “We’re going to play our sad songs first, have a couple drinks, then play some stuff for you to dance to.” Said songwriter Soren Staff. Even during the acoustic set, the fans were stomping feet and clapping hands to the bluegrass tunes. 

The Wisconsin natives were in town for MOSES, an organic farming conference which educates farmers about organic and sustainable production and provides resources to do so. Moses is one of downtown La Crosse’s biggest tourist events every year, with a draw of over 3000 people. 

Them Coulee Boys will continue to promote their recent album “Die Happy”, with tours throughout the United States.
