Extra Crispy Brass Band
One of Milwaukee's most popular summer concert series, Jazz in the Park will return to Cathedral Square Park for its 26th year in June, with a lineup heavy on Milwaukee favorites like Extra Crispy Brass Band, Christopher's Project, Streetlife and Foreign Goods. It's a schedule that should please even some of the city's pickiest jazz fans, who in the past have ribbed the series for prioritizing bands with only dubious connections to the genre. Though this year's lineup takes a few detours into jazz-adjacent genres like blues and soul, the bulk of the lineup really is grounded in jazz.

The complete lineup is below. Each Thursday's show runs from 6 to 9 p.m., following a 5 p.m. happy hour featuring specials from the park's vendors.

Would white supremacists, neo-Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan pose the same threat they do now if a mainstream Republican were president instead of Donald Trump?
