This three-piece band has been featured on NBC live in the Morning, the Morning Blend and Discover Wisconsin, and has also opened for national acts like Earth Wind & Fire, B.B. King and Aaron Neville.

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.
