Through the relationship of wife and husband, Kerry and Mike Semrad, a kindred spirit of music has been present. Finding their voices through original songs has become an uplifting journey that transcends just husband and wife; It?s a connection within the listeners and together they find that deep comfort in the soul that is driven by the sound a family creates. Kerry, coming from a background of gospel and blues, lends vocals to Mike?s country and rock influences to make a sound that can only be described as Americana. Mike’s Father brought music to live in one of the first Nebraska rock bands, called The Smoke Ring, who was on American Bandstand in 1968 with a hit song. Then, on Mike’s Mother’s side of the family, his uncle toured with Johnny Cash, bringing a flair of country honky tonk to life within his writing. Collectively it makes up the unique sound of The Bottle Tops!

Joined by an onslaught of Lincoln’s finest; Brian McGovern on mandolin, Ben “The Mailman” Mailand on drums, Jay Tolliver on Pedal Steel, and Kim Taruc on upright bass, The Bottle Tops settle for nothing less than pure radiating joy out of every audience member.

On any weekend, you can see the band rocking every club from the Midwest honky tonks to large theatres and a devoted fan base of old to young dancing and singing along to their original songs.
