MILWAUKEE, Wis. (June 18, 2019) – Employees and visitors in downtown Milwaukee will have a new reason to liven up their lunch break starting June 20th. In partnership with 411 East Wisconsin Center, Milwaukee Downtown, BID #21 has orchestrated a new courtyard concert series. The inaugural event is presented by PNC Bank.

PNC presents Tunes@Noon will take place every Thursday, June 20 through Sept. 5, from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m., featuring a range of jazz, reggae, alternative, acoustic and folk music. In August, the series will salute local female vocalists with weekly “Milwaukee Femmes” programming.

“We’re excited to activate what Milwaukee Magazine dubbed as one of the city’s most underrated public spaces with this midday concert series,” said Susan Johnson, senior property manager with Colliers International at 411 East Wisconsin Center. “This programming is not only a perk to our tenants, but a community-building amenity for the neighborhood.”

In addition, Davians at 411 Café will serve new grab-and-go options outdoors each week for guests who want to enjoy lunch in the courtyard.

“PNC is proud to support this inaugural lunchtime concert series which will offer our community quality music and food throughout the summer,” said Chris Goller, PNC regional president for Wisconsin. “The initiative is a great way to energize interest in our downtown district while supporting the immense talent in our region.”

The PNC presents Tunes@Noon lineup includes: Extra Crispy Brass Band, Joe Wray, Liv Mueller, Brett Newski & The No Tomorrow, CNJ Latin Jazz, Roxie Beane, Urban Empress and the Urbanites, Donna Woodall, Alison Helf, Eliza Hanson, and Jon Hintz of the Rumskis. Visit for more information.
