The Sue Orfield Band has been making original music here in the Chippewa Valley since 2005, and has secured it’s place in the local music scene as an innovative band of top-notch musicians.  Beyond that,  they are hard to describe.  Their music is influenced by blues, rock, jazz, country, folk, world, and bluegrass.  

In fact, this year (2016) they were voted by music fans in the Chippewa Valley as the area’s No. 1 Blues Band (Volume One’s Chippewa Valley Reader Poll).  A few years ago, they were voted the area’s No. 1 Jazz Band.  In 2010, they were picked as the 2nd best Original Rock Band.  

One thing is for sure, their music is full of surprises, with moments of high-energy wailing, and moments of thoughtful simplicity.  

The group features Sue Orfield on tenor saxophone, Mike Schlenker on guitar, Randy Sinz on bass & vocals, and Dave Schrader on drums & vocals.
