In 2018 Rich Petko and Michele Linn formed the duo Midnight & Moonshine. Their eclectic set list borrows from the song books of artists like Ray Charles, Bonnie Raitt, John Hiatt, Melissa Etheridge and Maren Morris. Recent writing and recording efforts have the duo including a handful of originals in which their poignant lyrics are set to an Americana style and layered in rich vocal harmonies. Rich and Michele enjoy uncommonly complementary vocal tones through which they tell their stories. While Rich is a classically trained pianist he applies his 35+ years of experience playing in multitudes of Country, Rock and Blues bands to the Midnight & Moonshine format and the magic happens. Michele’s experiences in choir groups and as back-up vocal support for local song writers have honed the craft for adding interesting harmonies while her lead vocalist role in her full band format work to train her in the art of performing. The pair have a genuine respect for the music and the venues in which they are fortunate enough to play; their personal connection to one another clearly shows and translates easily from the stage to the audience.
