Robin Pluer joins forces with MRS.FUN to perform a passionate melange of vintage French chansons with a twist of je ne sais quoi. Robin Pluer, a perennial WAMI (Wisconsin Area Music Industry) Award winner, has been performing and composing music for more than 20 years. Her fresh, engaging talent has afforded her opportunities from Garrison Keeler's "Prairie Home Companion" and NPR's "World CafÃ©” to touring in Europe. Wherever she performs, the chanteuse with panache effortlessly captivates her audiences. She can transport you to a more genteel France through chansons of the past, or strike your inner musical soul with her funky R&B style.
MRS. FUN plays hardcore electra-acid-jazz. Complex, sophisticated and adventurous, their music is a provocative blend of off-center jazz, ulta-funk, spoken word rap, and their own brand of neo-cabaret. The MRS. FUN sound derives from Connie Grauer's funky bass-driven keyboard playing and Kim Zick's aggressive in-the-pocket drumming. Intelligent lyrics, flawless musicianship, and a dynamic stage presence are hallmarks of their music.
