Chill on the Hill Bands Announced

April 28, 2009

The BVNA in conjunction with Milwaukee County Parks is proud to celebrate its fifth year of providing the Chill on the Hill concert series in Humboldt Park. The BVNA, in partnership with the Milwaukee County Parks, will host various local bands and family-friendly events every Tuesday evening throughout the summer.

 

The inspiration behind the event originated five years ago from BVNA co-founder Carol Pritzlaff Voss, whose grandmother relayed stories of music and dancing in Milwaukee County Parks. A life-long Bay View resident, Voss found herself dreaming of ways to revive Humboldt Park’s glory years, and the Chill on the Hill was born. “The BVNA and Milwaukee County Parks gave encouragement to develop the concept. The result was a really solid concert series for attendees and sponsors,” stated Voss, who continues as Chairperson for Chill on the Hill.

 

Nights involving opening acts comprised of local groups will begin the fun at 6:00 pm with bands taking the stage at 6:30 pm. Concert-goers are encouraged to bring blankets or lawn chairs and enjoy the eclectic mix of music. Additionally, there will be refreshments and concession trucks from the Milwaukee County Parks as well as various local restaurants and businesses.

 

The event has attracted a growing number of attendees, averaging a nightly 1,200 last year. “The BVNA is thrilled to have such great support for Chill on the Hill from our local businesses and neighbors. This event is designed to bring our community together, and we get the chance to do that 15 times a summer,” added Patty Pritchard-Thompson, BVNA President and another life-long Bay View resident.

 

Voss and the Chill on the Hill committee volunteers are excited to announce the following line-up for this summer’s performances:
