High Energy! December’s Bottega Live features The Madd Hatters – an exciting band from the Cape Fear Region. Also in the show we have Tyler Fulton, Faith Coleman, and the one and only Michele Wuensch. WHQR's Bottega Live airs each month in conjunction with Wilmington’s Fourth Friday Gallery Walk.

The Madd Hatters are widely known for their high-energy, blistering, raucus, fast-paced shows. Established in 1998 as a Halloween and New Years Eve party band with jazzy, ska core, punk, and reggae eclectic tunes.

They played Bottega during a special evening of singer songwriters in September.

Tyler plays in a few bands in the Wilmington area, and is an accomplished singer and guitarist.

Later in the show we are thrilled to feature singer – songwriter – keyboardist Faith Coleman.

We close out the program with Michele Wuensch, with an original tune she played at Bottega after a set of classic Irish folk songs. Does her last name sound familiar? It should!
