Country Star Rodney Atkins and Funk Legend George Clinton to Perform at January Bucks Games
Upcoming Bucks home schedule also features three performances from locally-renowned artists as part of the Milwaukee Mondays series
In addition to world-class basketball on the court, fans at five upcoming Bucks home games will also enjoy world-class music as the Bucks continue to expand the fan experience at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. From up-and-coming local acts to one of the most iconic performers in American music history in George Clinton, the upcoming series of musical performances at Bucks games features something for fans of all ages and musical tastes.
Friday, Jan. 8 is Country Night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center when the Dallas Mavericks make their lone appearance of the season. Following the game, nationally-renowned country artist Rodney Atkins will perform a free postgame concert presented by 94.5 KTI Country for all fans in attendance. The Academy of Country Music’s Top New Male Vocalist in 2006, Atkins has produced six singles that have reached the top of the Billboard country music chart.
The following week is Kohl’s Flashback Friday when the Atlanta Hawks visit on Jan. 15. This ’70s-themed game will feature a special halftime performance from George Clinton, one of America’s most celebrated innovators of funk. Clinton, who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997 for his founding role with Parliament-Funkadelic, has been a part of over 40 R&B hit singles and three platinum albums.
Both Country Night and Kohl’s Flashback Friday will also feature themed entertainment throughout the game, including unique player intros and themed performances by the Milwaukee Bucks Dancers and other Bucks performance groups. The Jan. 15 game is also a Bucks Legends Night presented by Legends of the Field, featuring an appearance by Bob Dandridge, who starred for the Bucks during the ’70s. Fans planning to attend these fun-filled theme nights can take advantage of the Coors Light Bucks Night Out offer, which starts at just $19 and includes a ticket to the game, a voucher for a beer or soda, a Bucks pint glass and access to the indoor tailgate area inside the arena.

The Milwaukee Mondays schedule picks back up next Monday, Jan. 4, with a performance GGOOLLDD, an electronic pop group that was tabbed by the Journal Sentinel as one of six Milwaukee bands to watch in 2015. The Jan. 4 game will feature the T-shirt design by Words & Images.
Milwaukee Mondays continue on Feb. 22 vs. the Los Angeles Lakers, featuring the T-shirt design from Wiskullsin and music from Jacob Latimore.
