The Host Country w/ Chad Lehr

  • Dick's Tap and Shake Room 1602 E Ave NE Cedar Rapids, Iowa 52402 United States (map)

We're back for another round at Dick's Tap & Shake Room, and we CANNOT WAIT to rock with you all again! Very excited to have Chad Lehr on board as well. See you soon!

The Host Country’s genre experimentation puts them in a category of their own. Their music is a fusion of folk, rock, and blues; a mix of raw and vulnerable, all combined with hauntingly passionate chord shifts. Dual writing credits between Ty Wistrand & Diana Weishaar put forth versatile songs that are evocative, intimate, and full of soul. Tom Rue (bass) and Ethan Weishaar (drums) carry the bottom end, and they recently brought in Michael Lovan on guitar to complete the 5-piece. The group's musical storytelling and engaging live performances are not to be missed. 

We have all been that guy or gal driving home alone at night when a song comes on, maybe we know it, maybe we don't, but in those 3:30-4:00 minutes, we feel safe. Safe in our pain, safe in our hope, safe in our understanding that things won't always be like this bad/good thus causing us to cherish that moment, and if we can't...we simply start the song over. Sometimes over and over again. Chad Lehr just want to be the song you want to play over and over again.
