If there’s one thing Milwaukee loves more than live music, it’s live music played outdoors. Even though the city is already chock full of festivals, block parties, and a variety of other festivities, it hasn’t stopped new ones from popping up at an encouraging clip. Last year, Cafe Hollander‘s flagship location announced a new series that brought the likes of B~Free, Evan Christian, Jen Cintron, and other musicians to the longstanding East Side dining staple almost every Wednesday of the summer.

After a fun first year, Cafe Hollander is ready to revive the patio performances for another summer. Starting June 19, Cafe Hollander on Downer Avenue will host acoustic acts on its gorgeous patio. The Wednesday night series kicks off with Roxie Beane and will continue through the August 14 finale with Ben Wagner. Adding to the allure of free entertainment from 4-7 p.m. are food specials and $6 “patio pours” of Bofferding beer.

If you’re looking for a mid-week music fix between festivals this summer, you can find it at Cafe Hollander. Here’s the full Summer Music Series lineup:

June 19: Roxie Beane
June 26: Mario Lanza
July 3: Marc Ballini
July 10: Kyle Feerick
July 17: Daydream Retrievers
July 24: The Oxleys
July 31: Jack Tell
August 7: Alison Helf
August 14: Ben Wagner
