Heading into their 10th year together, Appleton rock band Ifdakar has never sounded better. The addition of keyboardist Michael “The Wizard” Romenesko has added a missing element to the music, with the result being a mature, accomplished sound that puts the band on par with the scene’s brightest.
The 5 piece -also including Curt Biese on guitar and synths, Jon Schinke on guitar and vocals, Zach Chisholm on bass, and Frank Deringer on drums and vocals- has spent the beginning of 2017 in Appleton’s legendary Rock Garden Studio recording their long awaited sophomore album. A new line-up, a new album, and a fresh, new sound all contribute to the continuing story of one of Wisconsin’s most enduring original bands. A story as rich and colorful as the music itself.
