We’re so excited to kick off our 2015-16 Performing Arts Season THIS WEEK with not one, but TWO fantastic brass bands of contrasting styles. Starting Thursday, the city of South Milwaukee will be filled with the amazing sounds of supremely talented brass musicians who thoroughly enjoy entertaining their audiences.
Extra Crispy Brass Band will be at the South Milwaukee Downtown Market on Thursday, September 17, from 5-7 pm.This is a New Orleans style Brass group with high energy and an old school New Orleans swing style. Tell your friends to leave work a few minutes early and get to this show. Summer is short and Extra Crispy Brass Band is super fun! Don’t miss it. And, be sure to thank Classic Cargo International for their sponsorship of this show.
