THURSDAY JUNE 10TH
Introducing a brand-new lineup bringing together the talents of BluesEd veterans from Us and Them and Vertigo along with fresh, new faces. Hailing from 6 high schools across the Omaha metro, these musicians have been playing music for a combined 54 years. In addition to school commitments such as band, choir, orchestra, and theater, these students have serious fun merging their vast influences and crafting their own sound.
Blue Sunday members have enjoyed making memories performing a variety of gigs ranging from jamming on Beale Street, to Playing with Fire, to In the Market for Blues, and even opening for Mavis Staples at Zoofest. In this first year of playing together, they are excited to bring their energetic interpretation of Blues to Midtown Night Market at Midtown Crossing, the 25th Annual Taste of Omaha, Bellevue Rocks, Music for the City, and many more gigs.
This year’s gifted members include Aidan Schmidtke (Vocals), Nicholas Schlott (Bass), Drew Higgins (Sax), Maggie Millerbernd (Vocals), Miles Divis (Keys/Trumpet), Sean Higgins (Drums), Miles Grabenstein (Guitar), and Wes Burns (Guitar).
