MILWAUKEE – River Rhythms, downtown Milwaukee’s destination for music on Wednesday evenings, welcomes Chicken Wire Empire to the stage on Wednesday, June 27th. The free concert series takes place from 6:30 – 9 p.m. every Wednesday through August 29th (except July 4th) in Pere Marquette Park on Old World Third Street between State and Kilbourn.

Since their formation in 2014, Chicken Wire Empire has established themselves as one of the hottest up-and-coming bands in both the local and regional music scene. The band blends contemporary tones with traditional roots to create a bluegrass style that is entirely their own. Their inspired song writing and showmanship makes this the kind of show that anyone can enjoy.

Miller products, Malibu & Absolut cocktails, wine and soda will be available at the Westown beverage tent with all proceeds going to benefit the free event. Patrons can also enjoy food options from local food trucks and restaurants.

New this year: concert attendees will now have more parking options available to them. Parking will be provided by Interstate Parking at 751 North Plankinton Avenue and 601 West State Street for $3.00 with code 0004.
