Hours:

Thursdays 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. and 6 - 8 p.m. 

This is the 13th season for the free concert series, presented by the City of Kenosha and Happenings Magazine. Performances by different bands will be featured each Thursday through August 28.

Most dates will feature the same performers at the morning and evening shows. However, morning performers have not yet been announced for the July 17 and 24 concerts. The announced headliners will present only evening shows on those dates.

  • July 10: The Ragbirds will kick off the 2014 Peanut Butter and Jam concert series. Their folk-rock-world fusion music has its roots in gypsy, MiddleEastern, Americana, rock and Latin influences, stirred with a Celtic fiddler's bow. The Ragbirds are a five-piece female-lead group.
  • July 17: Local favorites Ash Can School will perform at 11:30 a.m. Crystal Bowersox, a 2010 American Idol runnerup, returns to Kenosha for a special evening-only performance at 6 p.m.
  • July 24: Hobo Rodeo will perform at 11:30 a.m. Ronnie Rice, aka the Human Jukebox, is featured in the 6 p.m. show. Rice scored a series of Billboard hits as lead singer of the “New Colony Six.” He brings memories of greasers, surfing, hot rods and American Bandstand to his evening-only performance of classic rock 'n roll.
  • July 31: Chicago Tribute Anthology (CTA) returns to Kenosha with the music of Chicago – the only American rock band to chart in the Top 40 in five consecutive decades. Band members are all veterans of the Chicago area music scene and have performed with notable national and local artists including Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Tony Bennet, The Woody Herman Orchestra and many others.
  • Aug.7: Serendipity bring an energetic, pop, radio friendly brand of rock 'n roll to the stage. The group of teenage girls from Arlington Heights, IL, has a talent that far exceeds their years.
  • Aug. 14: Lil' Ed and the Blues Imperials – a returning favorite – provides some foot-stomping blues and slow burning knee-bucklers that will get you dancing. The group is among the premier party bands originating in Chicago in the1970s and '80s.
  • Aug. 21: Classical Blast, a classically trained group of musicians, brings a new twist to mainstream rock and pop music. The group brings the classical arts to mainstream rock – from Bach to classic rock to contemporary pop.
  • Aug. 28: Rockstar Rodeo closes out the season with some pop country and top rock hits, covering artists including Brantley Gilbert, Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean and many more.

New in 2014: This summer plan on enjoying lunch or dinner at the new PB&J food oasis, where you’ll find local restaurants serving some of their favorite menu items. Located just west of the Veteran’s Memorial Fountain is where you can enjoy great tasting food and also discover talented musicians performing on the intimate oasis stage.

This event is on Kenosha's electric streetcar line!

In the event of rain, the concert will be canceled.
