MILWAUKEE – Jazz musician Jay Anderson and jazz/folk duo Sara and Kenny will kick off a new-look Traveling Beer Garden music series tonight at Greenfield Park and Juneau Park.

The live music nights, held on Friday and Saturday nights between 5-8pm, will feature a more varied line up this year, with musicians including Gabby of Faux Fiction, Nickel and Rose, bluegrass band Pay the Devil, cello/rock group Well Known Strangers and Nashville country musician Nathan Kalish.

Trapper Schoepp and Zach Pietrini, who will be playing with their full bands at Chill on the Hill in August, will also be playing several solo performances at the Traveling Beer Garden this season.

Wednesday night keg tappings, held on the first date of each beer garden stop, will continue to feature traditional polka music.

“I’m excited to play the Traveling Beer Garden” said Gabby Kartz, vocalist/guitarist in the band Faux Fiction “it epitomizes summer in Milwaukee: beautiful scenery, an icy cold beer in hand, and good times with friends and family.”

The Traveling Beer Garden live music is free to attend and presented by Klement’s Sausage – the official sausage of Milwaukee County Parks.
