Ben + WMV
Ben will be our new Spotlight Specialist; blogging on different WMV member musicians, curating playlists featuring them for patrons specifically as well as the general public, and doing the occasional social media takeover at our events – helping to promote our musicians, venue partners, and those patrons at our events. Welcome, Ben!
We welcome local hip hop artist/Green Room member Twan Mack as emcee of our new WMV Music Collab at No Studios in Milwaukee that will be in-person beginning in mid-June. Musicians may bring their instruments, come hang out, and just have a good time. Open to anyone. These will be held on Saturdays from 2:00-4:00 PM.
The mission of Wisconsin Music Ventures is as follows: Building community through music, and music through community; patron-supported live music experiences featuring local musicians in distinctively Wisconsin settings. Since COVID-19 WMV has added an emphasis on helping musicians to thrive in Wisconsin.
