Live from the Wonderground: The Funky JBeez

Friday, September 6 @ 5:00 pm 8:00 pm

On the first Friday of the month in the summer, visit the Wonderground for performances by some of Madison’s best in a family friendly environment. Kids play while their caregivers enjoy grown-up drinks—and everyone listens to the music! Parents enjoy a night out without relying on a babysitter and kids get a chance to enjoy the museum’s most iconic outdoor space.

Our featured performers tonight are The Funky JBeez, a music ensemble based out of Madison Wisconsin led by award-winning drummer Joey B. Banks. The band is made up of some of the best musicians in the Midwest and performs Jazz, Funk, Soul, Pop, and R&B music from the 70’s to the present. The band is best known for their high-energy Clyde Stubblefield tribute that features “The Funky Drummer” performed with James Brown.

Our Bucket Set performance tonight is The Bagamins, featuring the unconventional paring of theremin melodies with plastic bag percussion.

Admission for Live from the Wonderground is pay-what-you-can: you choose how much you think your ticket should cost based on your ability to pay and what you’d expect to pay for tickets to similar events. All tickets are at the door, no advance registration is needed.
