The Domes

This is the last week to hear live music and gaze at lasers under the Mitchell Park Domes (524 S. Layton Blvd.).

Sponsored by the Milwaukee County Parks, the Music Under Glass series runs November-March and brings live music among lush foliage every Thursday.

Catch The Britins, a Beatles Tribute Band this Thursday, March 31. The concerts run 6:30-8:30 p.m. But there’s more… Marvel at a light show at intermission and post-concert. While you are there, tour all three Domes and the rare and exotic plant life from every continent on earth.

 
Chasin’ Mason

Reggae, Rock, Doo-Wop, Latin, Rock, Funk, R&B, Polka – whatever you fancy, you’ll find it at Music Under Glass. Local bands such as Reverend Raven & The Chain Smoking Alterboys, Eddie Butts Band, De la Buena, Paul Cebar, Streetlife with Warren Wiegratz, the Five Card Studs, King Solomon and Chasin’ Mason – just to name a few – all performed this season.

Chief of Recreation for the Parks Jeff Baudry reports average attendance is about 1,000 people per event, and Parks Director Sue Black says: “Music Under Glass is so different and so fun. I invite you to come out and play.”

Admission is $6.50, and food and beverages are available for purchase.  For more information, click here or call the Domes at 414-649-9830.

The popular series will continue, though no plans have been made for the 2011-12 season.  “We are always open to new partners who want to use this venue as a way to get exposure,” Baudry says.
