Now in its third season, the First Fridays concert series at the Cedarburg Cultural Center (located at W62 N546 Washington Avenue in downtown Cedarburg) will continue to bring the feel of a summer outdoor concert series indoors for the colder months to audiences of all ages. This series provides an opportunity to fulfill the CCC mission of providing a gathering place for the community, while providing a space to showcase emerging artists, as well as established, WAMI Award-winning bands.
As the name suggests, the First Friday concert series happens on the first Friday of each month, from October through May, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. In the 2016-2017 season, guests will be greeted to a singer-songwriter performance at 6:00 p.m., followed by the featured band at 7:00 p.m. First Fridays provides a kid’s craft hour and space to hula hoop from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. In addition, dinner will be available for purchase from featured food trucks. Other activities include a local handmade art show and monthly art exhibit. The lights go down and the party turns up as the headliner takes the stage, and the Center’s full cash bar and dance floor multiply the fun.
First Fridays will showcase a variety of musical styles, including Americana, Blues, Caribbean, Country, Jam, Funk, Pop, Reggae, Rock, R&B and Soul. The series is free of charge to CCC members and children under 5. Non-member general admission is $5 at the door. The 2016/17 season includes:
October 7 Mic Over Matter 90’s Pop
November 4 Kyle Feerick Band Folk Rock
December 2 WhiskeyBelles Roots Americana
January 6 Alex Wilson Band Blues
February 3 FM Rodeo Country
March 3 City Block Classic Rock
April 7 Kojo Caribbean & Reggae
May 5 The People Brothers Band Rhythm & Soul
“We are so excited to present First Fridays for third year in a row, and we love to see people of all ages come together for this monthly event. Whether it’s date night or a night out with the kids, First Fridays has a little bit of something for everyone!” said CCC Executive Director, Stephanie Hayes.
The Cedarburg Cultural Center and US Bank present First Fridays, with additional support from Fromm Family Foods, Festivals of Cedarburg, Executive Search Partners-ESP, Visual Image Photography, Olsen’s Piggly Wiggly and, after party sponsor, The Stilt House.
