Polar Alchemy is the guitar and vocal duo featuring James Olsen and Michael Theroux.
James (Jameson) Olsen has been playing guitar for 30+ yrs. He is also an accomplished luthier. Originally from Chicagoland Burbs, James has lived and played music in the Fox Cities since 2000.
Michael Theroux has over the years performed and recorded with several bands in California, and more recently in Wisconsin with Unity The Band, and Miss Molly.
Polar Alchemy performs what they call Acoustic Jam Rock – songs from the 60s, 70s, 80s and beyond with a good helping of classic blues tunes and a few jazzy fusion instrumentals. They also throw in a couple original songs here and there. Their shows are a mix of high energy guitar virtuosity, and feel-good classics.
