Mama Tried changed their name to Wise Jennings with the release of their EP in August 2017. They are an original band in southern Wisconsin that features husband and wife duo Jeff and Melissa Weishaar. They write and perform a style of Roots Rock with an Americana blend at bars, coffee houses, city festivals and private parties. Melissa plays a scaled down acoustic drum set, sings, and plays harmonica. Jeff plays mostly on his semi-hollow body electric and some on an acoustic. Their performances rock with a stripped down sound and an intriguing vibe. The lyrical themes of the songs are at times dark with a cloak of musical styling that belies the lyric…like a tarantula hiding in cotton candy. They write about the human experience…simplicity, complication, beauty, stupidity, regret, levity. As artists they hit the mark, celebrate, miss the mark, lament, write and perform more… and repeat…Oh…and never take themselves too seriously.
