|11am - Samba Unit||12pm - Leroy Airmaster||2pm - Blessed Feathers|
|It's Samba time! Samba is lively, rhythmical dance. This parade ensemble is a community musical endeavor based on Brazilian instruments and rhythms. Part of the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music and composed of various individuals ranging in age from 9 and up, this group performs tradition music and instrumentals from Brazil, Bahia, and other areas. Participants generally perform in the July 4th Parade, the All-City People's Parade and at other summer events in the greater Milwaukee area.||In the 1980s, Leroy Airmaster was the dominant blues band in a vibrant live blues music scene in southeastern Wisconsin. They performed constantly, and released 4 well received recordings.
The members of the most popular version of the group reformed in 2010, and continue to perform their unique blend of blues jazz and rock music. Not content to rehash classic blues licks, Steve Cohen (harmonica, vocals) and Bill Stone's (guitar, vocals) solo styles rely heavily on a jazz approach, but never lose the gutsy blues framework that made the band so popular. With original powerhouse drummer Vodie Rhinehart and rock solid bassist Kurt Koenig, Leroy continues to satisfy audiences with their musical prowess, tasteful song selections, and dynamic delivery.
|"Just a couple of folks who write and sing songs in the kettled forests of southeast Wisconsin." Described by themselves, Donivan Berube and Jacquelyn Beaupre, Blessed Feathers music is described as intimate, woodsy, and dynamic. With unique songs inspired by different geographies, they are an up and coming band that will beguile listeners with a woodsy vibe, urging the listener into an intimate, skillfully crafted sonic space.|
|4pm - Glenview Lane||6pm - Vitrolum Republic||8:15pm - Hugh Bob and the Hustle|
|Hailing from Milwaukee, Glenview Lane is an amalgamation of musical sensation with music the whole family can enjoy. Though this group has seen many faces and known many members, the essence of Glenview Lane shines thru in every manifestation of the group, bringing through feeling and experience in the form of sound. Blending roots rock and funky folk, these gentlemen aim to produce sounds that touch that primal part of every person that just makes you wanna move.||Creating their own name, Nick and Jordan Waraksa with Chick Lawton formed a trio who resonate with their ideas and expression of music. Vitrolum represents a conduit of expression and Republic refers to the masses which as their audience become part of the experience.
The Vitrolum Republic's sound is a combination of various styles that can best be described as classically infused folk music. They cover many different styles of music, but all in away that feels rooted in a style all their own, which they have come to call Gypsy Noir.
|Since leaving the rural climes of northern Wisconsin for the relative big-city charms of Milwaukee, Hugh Masterson has done time with a number of successful and semi-successful local bands, most notably Bosio and The Wildbirds. But with the former long gone and the latter currently on hold, Masterson has been focusing on fronting his latest project, the country-fied Hugh Bob And The Hustle. On the group's self-titled debut album, Masterson - along with Nicholas Stuart, Quinn Scharber, Bradley Kruse, and Justin Krol - trades the swagger and strut of The Wildbirds for breezy country ditties, thick harmonies, and the occasional barn-burning rave-up. Its a warm, affectionate collection of straight-up AM country gold.|
