August 29: Eddie Butts Band
Join us for our final Jazz in the Park event of the year this Thursday, August 29 in Cathedral Square Park from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Ringing in the end of summer is the Eddie Butts Band, a must-see Midwestern act.
The Eddie Butts Band has been delighting audiences at various events around Wisconsin for years; festivals, concerts, night clubs, weddings and others. They deliver an exciting blend of R&B, pop, jazz and are known to get audiences on their feet.
Eddie, the founder of the group, brings a smoky baritone voice and highly-praised musicianship to this polished and professional band. Butts started his musical career at age 13, performs annually at Summerfest and has opened for legendary acts such as Chaka Kahn, Santana and Tom Jones. Watch below to see a live performance from 2017.
