Winter is coming, and so is Guys on Ice

MADISON, Wis. - More than just a musical comedy, it's a heartwarming and witty journey through the secret world of ice fishing with Wisconsinites Marvin and Lloyd. For anyone who has ever been curious about the little plywood shanties sitting on lake ice, and what goes on inside them, Guys on Ice is an insider's view of a day in the life of two ice fishing buddies and home-grown philosophers from Up Nort' Wisconsin.

From their shanty, long-time buddies Marvin and Lloyd, played by Doug Mancheski and Steve Koehler, talk and sing about life, love, and the one that got away. The two pals keep warm with a mutual appreciation for good bait, cold beer, and of course, the Green Bay Packers. As Marvin anxiously awaits his opportunity to appear on a cable TV fishing show and share the secrets of his life on da' lake, Lloyd ponders a recent squabble with his wife over plans to spend their anniversary at Lambeau Field.

Audiences all over Wisconsin and across the country have enjoyed this whirlwind ice fishing tale, gaining wisdom about everything from the attributes of a snowmobile suit to romancing the checkout girl at the local grocery store through songs such as "The Wishing Hole" and "Fish is the Miracle Food".
