Five free concerts will be held on Wednesdays in June, July, August, and September in Kenosha’s historic Warren J. Taylor flower garden in Lincoln Park, located at 22nd Avenue and Martin Luther King Drive.

Two decades ago, Lincoln Park Live launched a showcase musical event in Kenosha’s largest park with great success. Now, in its third season of re-creation, it is set to return with a strong selection of jazz, salsa and rhythm & blues concerts. Musical groups include both local and regional music acts from northern Illinois to Milwaukee.

"Lincoln Park represents a central place for Kenosha’s children and families to gather for picnics, sporting events, weddings, and a host of other fun-filled activities,” said Tim Mahone, chairman of the Mahone Fund. “We are happy to build upon last year’s success of Lincoln Park Live and continue to work with the residents of such a beautiful neighborhood to bring high quality music to the historic flower garden.”

“The concert series has received tremendous success and support of the neighborhood residents and the community,” said Mayor John Antaramian. “The city is proud to partner with the Mahone Fund in presenting live music in our beautiful Lincoln Park.”

Performances include:

  • Aug 23: An evening of Latin Jazz and Salsa music has been rescheduled from July for this evening. The group Nabori will perform. Nabori performs original compositions drawn from the powerful stories found in the Latin American experience. Since the group formed in 2006, it has grown in musical sophistication. Nabori has performed at the Chicago International Salsa Congress, the St. Louis Salsa Congress, and the Voodoo Lounge in Kansas City, MO. Nabori continues to set higher standards with every performance, as the group continues to carve out its place in the Salsa music industry. The concert venue opens at 5:30 p.m. with host DJ Boriqua, followed by Nabori at 6:30 p.m.
  • Sept 13: Back to School Celebration with the Tremper High School Blue Jazz Ensemble and the Kal Bergendahl Project.
