Backyard BBQ Schedule

We’ve already told you about the amazing Backyard BBQ line-up, but here’s the schedule of bands playing our free event at Cathedral Square Park on Sunday, July 18th.

The Ragadors – We’re just going to kick right into gear with the high energy blues rock of one of Milwaukee’s most exciting young bands.

The Jonathan Burks Band – Speaking of exciting, Gin-soaked and rowdy, Jon Burks will transport you into a smoke-filled, 1970’s honky tonk. Something to behold, really.

Eric Lindell – Swampy, New Orleans infused blues and R & B with a little bit of country twang, Linell will keep you dancing through the afternoon.

The Carolina Chocolate Drops – We probably can’t say in any better than the Drops say themselves:  “Tradition is a guide, not a jailer. We play in an older tradition but we are modern musicians.” We are really fortunate to have CCD at the BBQ. REALLY fortunate.

.357 String Band – “Streetgrass” is their self-described style of music. When you hear it, and maybe more poignant when you see it, you will know exactly why.

Southern Culture on the Skids – The headliners of the 2nd Annual Backyard BBQ, it’s almost as if this event was made for them. Country fried country rock and roll with the grit of a city, or as they say – “Countrypolitan”, SCOTS close out this quintessentially American event.

So that’s the music, but stay tuned for the food and another awesome surprise! Hint: Vroom!

  1. My husband and I were at this event. What a great time! It reminded us of how Jazz in the Park used to be. It was great to see how the music really brought such a broad cross section of Milwaukee together. Keep up the good work!
