Make Music Madison in Elvehjem Neighborhood!

Join us at Elvehjem Park Shelter to celebrate Make Music Madison in Elvehjem Neighborhood!

Below is the current schedule and band descriptions, check back for updates! Feel free to bring a blanket to sit on and snacks to enjoy while you watch the performances.

6:00-6:45pm YOUR MOM
7:15-8:00pm The Getaway Drivers

YOUR MOM is the biggest party in town. YOUR MOM plays fun, high-energy covers of well-known hit songs from the 60’s through today, including a wide variety of styles from classic rock to hip-hop, from country to neo-soul, and many more!

The Getaway Drivers play original songs by co-lead singers Bob Manor and Sheila Shigley; expressions of love, loss and redemption. Our music is rendered as rock, pop, alt-country and shades between. The band performs as a sextet, with Bob alternating between acoustic guitar and keyboard; Sheila playing either mandolin or violin; Iris Hutchings provides harmony vocals; Greg Thornburg plays drum kit and occasionally flashes his skill on guitar; Pete Schmeling embellishes the rhythm on percussion; and Ken Keeley rounds out the rhythm section on bass. Making music in Madison for more than a decade, The Getaway Drivers have performed in settings from an Ontario apple orchard to the Overture Center.

Thank you to Julia McConahay of Deerwood Studios and Chrysalis for her help in planning this event!
