Good Morning Bedlam

Good Morning Bedlam at Fogartyville, Sarasota

Good Morning Bedlam has become an innovative force in the Midwest folk scene. Their shows are known for their contagious energy, with members careening about the stage. With tight soaring three-part harmonies, and thumping kick-drum, they captivate their audience night after night. Every song is a unique twist on what is generally dubbed as folk music. “We want to surprise our audience from song to song. Rather than creating our music to fit a genre, we allow it to be an outpouring of our own stories and unique sound,” says Isaak, frontman of GMB.

You will be treated to a haunting waltz, whistling, jazz scatting, and the euphoria of the violin melodies. When it comes to their lyrical storytelling, Isaak says, “We’re desperate to connect to people through the common human experiences that we write about and the exuberance of our live show. People have a lot of choices of how they’ll kick-back, so we intend to deliver a show where they can be free–to share in whatever they need to–joy, grief, anger, gratefulness, or bedlam!” 

 Good Morning Bedlam will perform on Thursday, April 7 at 7pm at the Fogartyville Community Media and Arts Center.  Tickets are $15 for members, $18 for nonmembers. Advance tickets are available at Fogartyville

Good Morning Bedlam played a 200 plus show tour in 2019 before the COVID-19 shutdown, claiming the first-place title at the John Hartford Memorial Festival Band Competition, and were finalists at the NWSS Band Competition.

GMB has played at festivals alongside artists such as Shakey Graves, Sam Bush, Jason Isabell, The Infamous Stringdusters, Trampled By Turtles and others. GMB has been featured on Bluegrass Today, Relix Magazine, Glide Magazine, Entertainment Tonight, and Under the Radar Magazine.
