10/10/17 - 7PM - Hissy Fit

Hissy Fit! is an up-and-coming band playing a mix of alt-contemporary country, classic country and classic rock and roll. Vocalist Susan Brown is backed by four well-known pros from the Omaha scene including John Rosseter on Percussion, Clark Ewalt on Bass, DaVal Johnson on Keyboards and John “Iowa” Scherle on Guitar. Their song list of favorites range from newer country sounds of Lady Antebellum and The Band Perry, to vintage tunes from Patsy Cline and rockers by The Beatles and other classics.

In August, Hissy Fit! was chosen to back up Grammy Award Winning Guitarist Albert Lee in a concert held at the Everly Brothers Home in Shenandoah, Iowa. Albert was the Everly’s guitarist for over 20 years and currently tours with the world’s top guitar players around the world. Playing a two hour concert, the band and Albert wound through a variety of Everly Brothers hits that made their sound a part of rock and roll history.

Hissy Fit! is a team of seasoned pros that have been part of the local music scene for many years; additionally, Susan has been a winner of the Johnny Ray Gomez talent show and John is a 2017 inductee into the Iowa Rock and Roll Hall of Fame receiving an individual lifetime achievement award.
