Upcoming concert: Shorewood Concert Band and a contest

The Shorewood Concert Band performs in Atwater Park this Thursday June 23rd at 7 PM. Led by Dr. Patricia Backhaus, the group performs 4 concerts per summer in the park. This Thursday's concert theme is "water music". And this week's concert will have a guest conductor: Mr. Jamin Hoffman of the Concord Chamber Orchestra. Should be fun!

So, bring a blanket or a lawn chair and be ready for a good time. The fun begins at 7 PM. Hope to see you there.

One other thing: I have to mention a special contest held by my favorite podcast. The Philcast, the daily podcast of local personality Phil Cianciola, is giving away a week at camp to a kid in the Milwaukee area. Log on to for all the details. All you have to do is send an email to Phil at, telling him why you nominate your camp kid. If your entry is selected, your nominee gets a free week this summer at Camp Timber-lee. What a cool offer!

And while you are there, bookmark the page and listen to all the podcasts. Great fun, and you may hear email comments from Bruce from Greenfield...that would be me. Keep up on the podcasts and you can meet Phil at the State Fair, learn about the bacon explosion, and other earth shattering things. And be sure to tell a friend. More people need to listen to this daily dose of fun! There is made-up scientific proof that road rage would be reduced if everyone listened to Phil. Cause I just made it up! So there!
