Live from the Wonderground: Hirt Alpert

August 4, 2023 @ 5:00 pm 8:00 pm

Join MCM for a night of music, dancing, food, and drink for all ages in the Wonderground. Bask in bold and brassy tunes from Hirt Alpert, a local Al Hirt and Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass tribute band. Catch the Drop in the Bucket mini-set from Active Percussion Duo, staged in our Giant Bucket. 

Admission is pay what you can, no registration needed. Enjoy our cash bar with grownup beverages and non-alcoholic options. Munch on light snacks available for purchase. This concert is for ‘bigs’ and ‘littles’ alike–kids are welcome, but not required.

Hirt Alpert recreates the brass-tastic sounds of the1960s. This seven-piece group based in Madison, Wisconsin covers both big hits and obscure deep cuts by horn-centric artists like Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass, Al Hirt, and Hugh Masekela. Driven by a brass section of trumpet, French horn, and trombone and a rhythm department featuring vibraphone, guitar, bass, and drums, Hirt Alpert performances are about much more than mere nostalgia. They are about COOL! And that never goes out of style.

Active Percussion Duo performs on a multitude of instruments, including both traditional percussion instruments and found sounds such as vessels, pipes, sheet metal, plastics, pans, bells, lids, crank arms, tubes, metal stock, sprocket, and cutlery.
