Milwaukee (January 28, 2016) – 88Nine Radio Milwaukee (WYMS-FM 88.9), a non-profit, community-funded radio station, presents its fifth annual SoundBites event on Thursday, February 11 at the Iron Horse Hotel, beginning at 5:30 p.m.

A unique and interactive event, SoundBites pairs up 88Nine DJs with top Milwaukee chefs to create a food sampling experience like none other. Chefs prepare a dish – maybe a restaurant signature or a new concoction – while 88Nine DJs curate the perfect musical choice to bring out the right notes in the plate. Attendees can graze through 13 tasting stations, getting a flavor of the local food and music scene simultaneously.

Participating chefs include:

“At 88Nine, we love two things: music and Milwaukee. SoundBites is an awesome opportunity to showcase the best of both. We love partnering with Milwaukee’s top chefs and finding the perfect song to take the tasting experience to the next level,” said Jordan Lee, Program Director at 88Nine.

In addition to tasting food and music pairings, guests will enjoy a champagne welcome reception, and a sampling of Wisconsin cheese and craft beverages. DJ Kiki Champ will spin tunes all night and Zach Pietrini will perform live in the lobby lounge from 9-11 p.m. Guests also have the opportunity to bid on food, music and Milwaukee experiences in the SoundBites Silent Auction.

Tickets for the event are $125 and corporate tables are available. Tickets are limited in quantity and all proceeds directly benefit 88Nine Radio Milwaukee.
