BWA UNPLUGGED (used to be called DOUBLESHOT) is an acoustic rock duet that Janine Taft & Dustin Bendell started in the fall of 2004 for a "fun" side project while they were putting together their rock band (Black Water Alley). Bassist Tom Moga joined the duet in Spring of 2013 to round out the sound and BWA UNPLUGGED trio was born. BWA UNPLUGGED perform acoustic music all over Minnesota, Wisconsin and the Upper Midwest states. BWA UNPLUGGED showcases a wide variety of cover tunes from every era and genre so they are a perfect fit for venues, special events, weddings and corporate events. Artists they cover which include but are not limited to: Classics by Neil Young, Cat Stevens, James Taylor, Fleetwood Mac, Kenny Rankin, Norah Jones, and Jim Croce and heavier unplugged greats of Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Led Zeppelin, Soundgarden, Alice In Chains, and Bad Company. Current arrangements by Seether, 3 Doors Down, Saliva, Pretty Reckless, Halestorm and Alterbridge have been added for 2015. They perform at Weddings, Corporate Events including Delta, Sun Country and Northwest Airlines, Biker Rallies, and any venue where acoustic music is a great fit.
