An afternoon and evening of live music in downtown Rushford! It’s Mr. Blink from 3-6 p.m. outside Shawnee’s Bar & Restaurant, followed by The Jimmys from 7-10 p.m. at the Norsquare Plaza. No charge–just bring a lawn chair. Jessie Street will be closed for this “block party,” and beverages will be available from several neighboring establishments.
Mr. Blink is a band based out of La Crosse, WI and was formed in the summer of 1989. The band plays everything from country to jazz to rock to blues…and with over 50 originals you never hear the same show twice. https://www.facebook.com/blinklax/
The Jimmys have solidified their brand of Blues and R&B across the Midwest, Canada, Europe and the Caribbean. Led by award winning keyboardist/organist Jimmy Voegeli, the band has been named a “festival favorite” in numerous reviews and magazines. Alongside Voegeli is an all star rhythm section with drums, bass and guitar. Their unique sound is capped off with Wisconsin’s best horn section including trombone, saxophone, and trumpet. The Jimmys continue to climb charts and blaze new trails and leave smiling faces and large crowds wherever they go. https://thejimmys.net
