BMO Harris Bank’s support of Milwaukee arts and entertainment is plain to see, what with the BMO Harris Bradley Center and BMO Harris Pavilion and all. Today, that support has only grown deeper with the announcement of an annual partnership between BMO Harris Bank and the Pabst Theater Group.
“BMO Harris Bank has a history of dedicated involvement in the community,” says Gary Witt, CEO Pabst Theater Group, in a press release. “Milwaukee has seen incredible growth in our downtown hospitality, restaurant, coffee and entertainment scene over the past decade. Through BMO Harris Bank international communication channels, I feel that we’ve found a unique but also effective partnership that can promote our city’s amazing attributes.”
The new partnership has already yielded results in the form of four mini-documentaries touching on the city’s music culture. In the first, Pabst Theater Group executive chef Kevin Sloan demonstrates his rockstar-satisfying cooking; in the second, Shepherd Express music editor and Disclaimer co-host Evan Rytlewski opines on the state of live music in Milwaukee; in the third, Pabst Theater Group PR director Andy Nelson goes backstage at the Riverside; and in the fourth, host Kiran Vee talks to Dope Folks Records’ John Kuester about the resurgence of vinyl.
