2019 Schedule:

July 9 – De La Buena – sponsored by Direct Supply

Growing from a trio into a powerful ten-piece over the last thirteen years, De La Buena has been electrifying audiences with their own brand of Afro-Cuban and Latin Jazz. Employing jazz harmonic sensibility and a deep-seated love of diverse cultures, De La Buena explores the textures and rhythms of Latin musics of the Americas with roots planted firmly in African Diasporic traditions…. a sophisticated Latin dance band with a touch of the psychedelic if you will.

July 23 – Screamin’ Cucumbers sponsored by Baird

The Screamin’ Cucumbers (Cukes) are a diverse Milwaukee area cover band formed in 2004 and have played just about every Milwaukee venue including Summerfest and State Fair. The Cukes have even taken their show on the road internationally and performed outside the US. The set list consists primarily of great danceable pop, rock and country tunes with a bit of an emphasis on the 80’s. If it’s upbeat, danceable, and fun it’s probably on the set list.

August 13 – Paul Cebar Sponsored by US Bank

Taking cues from the dance bands of western Louisiana (and his native Midwest,), the streets (and 45’s) of New Orleans, touring African and Caribbean combos and the soul, funk & blues of his youth coupled with early , teeth-cutting experience in the verbal hotbeds of  the coffeehouse scene, Cebar is a masterful synthesist of rhythmic culture.
