If there’s one thing we love more than live Milwaukee music, it’s live Milwaukee music in the summer. And if there’s one thing we love more than live Milwaukee music in the summer, it’s live Milwaukee music in the summer ON A BOAT. So let’s all get hyped for Edelweiss Cruises’ recently announced Concert Cruise lineup! Live! Milwaukee music! In the summer! ON A BOAT!

Not to be confused with Milwaukee Boat Line’s Concert Cruise series, the Edelweiss series features a boatload (sorry) of area acts playing live aboard the double-decker, 140-passenger Harbor Lady. Cruises begin at 7:30 p.m., and take off from the dock along the Milwaukee River at 205 W. Highland Ave. Tickets are $38 per show.

Here’s Trapper Schoepp doing his thing on an Edelweiss cruise in 2020:

And here’s the lineup for 2023! It includes some terrific original Milwaukee artists (Social Cig, The Keystones), and a few cover bands (Suzie And The Detonators, 11 One Louder). ALL ON A BOAT. Order your tickets via the links!
