more info

Join us at The Landing on Saturday, July 1st at 7:30 for live music on the lake, as You Knew Me When (and Clear Lake native Karisa Hoover) performs.

The music of You Knew Me When parades between a fusion of progressive indie-rock and folky compositions all infused with a myriad of pulsing and stirring beats.

Although music was the calling that brought them together in Nashville, Tennessee, it took the husband and wife duo You Knew Me When nearly a decade to create music together as a united pair. Stemming from the separate musical backgrounds of Cie Hoover, who predominantly resided within the hard-rock scene, and (Clear Lake native) Karisa Hoover, who could be found more often in vocal seminars and music education workshops, the two began writing music together in mid 2009.

It was from that point on that the two began melding their life partnership into the musical partnership known as You Knew Me When.

They play whatever gets the crowd going. Their tastes range from Garth Brooks to Van Morrison, to Jimmy Buffett, to The Clash. So if you want to hear something in particular just ask them, they most likely know it. The best thing about going to see The Swing Crew perform is that it's not like seeing your average "bar band", the quality of the music and the craziness of their antics will keep you entertained throughout the show.

Their winter home is in Summit County Colorado. Summers they're all over the midwest, with Wisconsin Dells as their home base.
