Though Milwaukee seems to have every weekend covered in terms of entertainment, it’s always refreshing to see bands perform in the city’s collection of weeknight concerts. Events like Chill On The Hill, Jazz In The Park, Tosa Nights, River Rhythms, Musical Monday, and Wonderful Wednesday help tide over weekend warriors and satisfy suburban commuters who want to some enjoy some of the city’s talent before Friday rolls around.
Adding to that weekend tradition is The North End‘s Denim Park’s summer concert series. On select Wednesdays between June and August, a diverse collection of performers take the stage on the corner of Water and Pleasant streets to play free and family-friendly shows. This year, a total of 10 bands will play over the course of nine Wednesdays. From the zydeco sounds of Vitrolum Republic to the festival-fitted funk of Mortgage Freeman and the folk goodness of the Christopher Haise Band, there’s a reason to head to Denim Park at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesdays throughout the summer. Here’s who’s playing.
