One thought on “Tonight’s River Rhythms Concert has Been Cancelled”

  1. Christina Zawadiwsky says:

    King Solomon is an excellent band and I urge everyone to go see them next week at River Rhythms! We are so fortunate in Milwaukee to have both a great park system (one of the best in the country) and so many free music concerts (check out Musical Mondays at Lake Park, Boer Botonical Garden’s free concert series, Chill on the Hill at Humboldt park, Kadish Park, Washington Park, and many others that have free concerts, all summer long!). What a great city is our beloved Milwaukee (and I was born in New York City and lived there and in Chicago, Illinois for a long time and find Milwaukee to be infinitely better)!
