Blues, BBQ & Beer at the Museum on the Square

Blues, BBQ and Beer at the Wisconsin Historical Museum: three nights of blues history, tunes and tastes

Join the Wisconsin Historical Museum and the Madison Blues Society for a trio of barbecue dinner feasts and blues music. The events are sure to be a feast for the ears and the taste buds. You'll enjoy the area's leading musicians, caterers and breweries, but time to sign up is running out. Registration and payment for the first event on Thursday, August 16, Blues, BBQ & Beer: Blues Meets Jazz, are required by Thursday, August 9. That event kicks off the series with a catered meal by Underground Catering, beer from Sprecher Brewery, and a musical performance by Louka Patenaude, one of Madison's best and most unusual guitarists from 6:30–9 pm. Sign up now and you can attend all three events for one discounted price.
