Fish Creek, Wis. (December 13, 2022) – On Thursday, December 22, at 7 p.m., Big Mouth & The Power Tool Horns will perform on the Door Community Auditorium (DCA) Main Stage. Jazz singer, Janet Planet, will also make a special guest appearance.
Celebrate the season with Big Mouth & The Power Tool Horns at DCA’s very own, first-ever Ugly Christmas Sweater Party! Nothing says Christmas like a campy outfit and the finest blues, jazz, and rock this side of Green Bay. Big Mouth, one of Door County’s most popular bands, is known throughout Wisconsin for playing an eclectic and dance-worthy mix of blues, jazz, and rock music. Forty years after the band was founded in Michigan by guitarist Jay Whitney, Big Mouth is still going strong, now featuring a horn section, The Power Tool Horns.
Special guest Janet Planet is an internationally touring jazz vocalist whom Jazziz Magazine calls “the voice of the New Jazz Culture … amazingly powerful, with seemingly limitless expression.” As a singer and a performer, Janet Planet is spirited and vivacious. She co-owns Steel Moon Recording Studio and Stellar Records with husband, Tom Washatka. She won an Emmy for her work on “A Child Believes” and is a 6-time WAMI award winner. In 2014 she became the second woman in 32 years to be inducted in to the WAMI Hall Of Fame. In 2017, Planet was acknowledged by the GRAMMY Foundation for her recording “Janet Planet – Just Like A Woman – The Music Of Bob Dylan.”
