 July 8 - Big Cedar Bluegrass Band

Five musicians who play banjo, acoustic guitar, mandolin, fiddle, and upright bass.  The band performs instrumental as well as vocal numbers with three and four part harmony - even some old-time gospel.  The upbeat bluegrass sound of Big Cedar will have you clapping your hands and tapping your feet and the energy of all band members working around one microphone is really fun to watch.

13-15 piece Swing band performing music of the late greats such as Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, and the like.

 

  

 August 5 - Concord Chamber Orchestra Band

Making classical music accessible since 1975, the Concord Chamber Orchestra has offered talented, volunteer musicians the opportunity to create stimulating musical experiences for the enjoyment and inspiration of Milwaukee area audiences.  Concord is an all-volunteer, non-paid group of approximately 50 musicians from a variety of professions and backgrounds.

  

 August 19 - Lisa Edgar & Razzmataz 

A festive, funny, foot-stomping combo performing music from the Gay Nineties to the Roaring Twenties.  This friendly, talented, and exuberant band blends Dixieland Jazz, Ragtime, and Old Time Vaudeville honky-tonk tunes giving the audience plenty of opportunities to join in the singing and antics.
