Bluegrass in the Milwaukee Area

From our political philospher colleague Ryan Hanley:
Just a quick note to let you know that my group, the Cream City Bluegrass Band, has a few shows coming up. Two are in Racine (details below). Closer to home for most of you though is our show on Saturday, August 2nd, from 9-midnight, at Paddy’s Pub in Milwaukee (2339 N. Murray; just north of North Avenue). Paddy’s is a great venue — we’ve had a great time playing there before, and would love to see you down there next Saturday for a fun night out if you can make it.
The two Racine dates are:

8/1/08 / Friday / Dunn Bros Coffee / 245 Main Street / Racine, 7-10 p.m.

8/29/08 / Friday / Music on the Monument / Racine 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

Here is the band’s website.

How good is the Cream City Bluegrass Band?

Pretty good. Good enough to be enjoyable and satisfying even for seasoned and discriminating bluegrass fans.

Including even old geezers who saw Flatt and Scruggs in live performance.

Good enough such that, if you like bluegrass, you want to be there.

Marquette Political Science majors will particularly get a kick seeing Professor Ryan Hanley on the Mandolin.
