Here are your picks for Best Acoustic/Bluegrass Band.

1. Dan Sebranek

Last year’s 3rd place finisher in the Best Acoustic/Bluegrass Band category jumps all the way to 1st place this year. Dan Sebranek has been a fixture of the La Crosse music scene for more than 30 years. In his career he has toured and recorded with some of the area’s most well known musicians, including Johnsmith, Hans Mayer, and Bill Miller. Sebranek is among the group of investors who bought and saved Leo & Leona’s in Newburg Corners, now one of the most popular live music venues in the area. His bluegrass band, String Ties (3rd place in this category), plays there and around the area regularly.
