7/6 | Unrehearsed MKE @ Jazz Estate


Sun, 7/6 |  Unrehearsed MKE          7pm $2 @ The Jazz Estate, MKE

The idea is simple:  We are looking to bridge the gap between music scenes by randomly putting musicians that have never played together and give them a chance to create a set of improvised music.  Be a part of something new and great in MILWAUKEE.  When is this great thing, you ask?  Well it is the FIRST SUNDAY of the month at The Jazz Estate, first set starts at 7:30pm.
