De Soto’s Ev Wick is a jack-of-all-trades and is using his skills to entertain everyone at home

DE SOTO, Wis. (BVM) — Ev Wick has many roles at De Soto High School. He is the fifth grade teacher, Drivers Ed instructor, bus driver and varsity football coach. The latter position saw him lead the Pirates to a 7-3 record last season and a playoff berth.

The son of a music teacher, in his free time he enjoys performing at local bars singing and playing his guitar. 

With the COVID-19 pandemic forcing everyone inside for months and causing the reopening process to be slow, Wick came up with a way to continue performing and help provide his students, players and their parents some needed entertainment.

“I think I just got bored of being at home,” said Wick, who during the quarantine began doing musical performances on Facebook Live. They’re a combination of requests from viewers and Wick’s own personal favorites.

The videos became popular for parents and their kids averaging over 400 views. Wick’s involvement at the school definitely helped with that.

“Being involved with that many things you get a chance to know quite a few of them,” Wick said. “It’s been fun.”

His kids have even gotten in on the action as his 8-year-old son, Maddax, is now his opening act.

Even after the stay at home order had been lifted in Wisconsin, the local bars that Wick performed at were not ready to go back to normal. Therefore, until they do, Wick will continue to entertain his community with music.
