.357 String Band calls it quits

If you head to the Turner Hall website to buy tickets for Friday's show by Milwaukee's own .357 String Band, you'll get some big local music news.

The site – also on the group's Facebook page – has a statement by the band that reads:

"Dear Fans, Friends and Family,

"It breaks my heart to have to make this announcement, but Nov. 25 and Nov. 26 will be The .357 String Band's final two shows. Joe (Huber) has decided that the aesthetic of The .357 String Band no longer represents him; he will be returning to school to study woodworking, and pursue his own musical interests part time. The other three of us could not agree on a way to continue The .357 String Band without him.

"Keep an eye out for solo projects/tours/etc, and we may occasionally make an announcement or two on here. Thank you all so much for the support over the years, it has meant the world to me. I hope to see you all at one or both of the shows next weekend, so we can celebrate 7 years of Streetgrass, whatever the hell that means."

The band has toured extensively throughout the world and was one of the first – if not the first – local band to sell out Turner Hall. Take advantage of one last chance to see them here at home.

Seen em a few times. Great band with a very unique sound. Hopefully Joe finds success in his next endeavor.

Real shame. Was luck enough to have caught two of their shows in the past. Always thought they had a real unique sound and really expected them to go big in the future. Good luck to all of them on their future endeavors.
