MKE River Roundup and Brew City Kayak Bring Music to the Open Water

Aug 31, 2021 08:30AM ● By Natural Awakenings Milwaukee
The MKE River Roundup is a weekly concert series on the Milwaukee River. From 5 to 8 p.m. every Wednesday through the end of September, a musical act will perform on a pontoon boat, known as “The Funktoon.” People can rent a kayak from Brew City Kayak and paddle alongside the performers. The Funktoon makes pit stops at bars and restaurants on their voyage up and down the river. Tickets are available for kayak rentals, and people that own their own watercraft are encouraged to come join in the fun. There is an afterparty at Boone & Crocket.

The band lineup for September features Honest John, September 1; Another One, September 8; The Hot & Dirty Brass Band, September 15; and The Erotic Adventures of Static Chicken, September 22.

Location: 820 S. Water St., Milwaukee. For more information, visit
