Wayside Dining Room, University Club
Join us for this lively CD release party celebrating the reissue of Monroe, Wisconsin's Helvetia recordings. Scattered, scarce, and nearly forgotten, Helvetia's entire catalog of some 36 sides, newly restored and remastered, is offered here for the first time. Rollicking and somber, sentimental and lusty, these Swiss, German, and Tyrolean tunes feature virtuoso instrumental combos, vocal quartets, and yodelers from Swiss communities in New Jersey, Ohio, and Wisconsin.
