About Us


Buck will be at Falls Tap this Friday from 7 - 11!!!  Stop in for some Great Music, Drinks and fun...  You never know what or who to expect at Falls Tap!!!

My new album "A Little Wood"  is now available on ITunes, Spotify, Apple Music and is now available on Amazon but to name a few.  I thank those of you that have purchased this!!!!  

I am in the process of finishing up my new EP....  It's called "I'm Not Jerry"...

I have included one of the songs from my new EP on the website here, it's called " But most of all I Blame You" give it a listen and let me know what you think.


BUCK SHOT is a musical troubadour experience located in Manitowoc Wisconsin playing songs from an era that has gone by, as well as new songs, and original music.. Buck Shot has been performing music since 1975 in many shapes and forms.. but always with the same message in hand, and that is having a good time, and celebrating the music and life…  Buck Shot consists of Steve Progar on the 6 and 12 string guitars… Steve has been playing guitar since he was 12 years old! His parents wanted him to play the accordion, like a good little Slovenian boy, but, Elvis and the Beatles were more popular with the girls than Frankie Yankovic, so the guitar won out!!! Steve has played in many various groups throughout his musical career, in various semi national bands as well as opening for many national acts… 

Main Goal and Other Things

The main goal for each performance is to get the crowd into the music, and the story telling as well as having a good time, and keeping the bartenders busy!!! 
This is accomplished by performing a wide variety of music, and always asking for requests.. to expand the musical repertoire for the audience!  So whether you are having an intimate gathering or a large event… Don’t forget to bring along a good crowd pleaser with live music!!! Bring along Buck Shot!  
Equipment Used by Buck Shot..  Bose L1 System, Mackie Pro FX8 mixer. Beat Buddy percussion, TC Helicon Harmonizer, Route 66 Compressor, DR Strings, d'addario Strings, American Made Ovation Custom 6 String, GUILD 12 string, FENDER Acoustisonic 90 amplifier, Sure SM58 Microphone with Atlas Mic Stand, and of course, the wooden stool – lol  


Buck Shot plays all acoustic folk songs from the 50's and 60's using just his voice and acoustic guitar with no amplification.  If there are any special requests or specific songs, please let us know a head of time to make this experience even better!  Also, please look at the acoustic folk songs list for more details as to the music.

Effects Used

Buck shot utilizes a TC Helicon Harmony G voice harmony machine (The Buckette's) as well as a BEAT BUDDY percussion machine (drummer Stan) in the show..  and a Route 66 Compressor for the guitars.. This giving the overall effect of an actual Band Playing!!!!
