Umbrellas: soon to be used for summer fun, not just for cold drizzly rain.

The Rock Sports Complex announces Umbrella Bar summer concerts and more

Milwaukeeans have probably had enough of umbrellas with the cold drizzle we've battled over the past days. But soon it'll all sweet sun above and sweet sounds below those brims thanks to The Rock Sports Complex and the upcoming summer music series headed to its Umbrella Bar.

Beginning on the first of next month, the Umbrella Bar will once again host Saturday night concerts from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. on its brick patio – complete with food trucks, a menu of cocktails and brews, and plenty of room to dance under the evening sky and the colorful coverage.

Here are all the acts coming to Saturdays (and one very patriotic Thursday) at the Umbrella Bar at The Rock:

June 1 – The Toys
June 8 – Superfly
June 15 – King Solomon
June 22 – Stetsin & Lace
June 29 – Failure to Launch
July 4 – Detour
July 6 – Everlong
July 13 – Mt. Olive
July 20 – Cherry Pie
July 27 – 33 RPM
Aug. 3 – Clove
Aug. 10 – Riding Shotgun
Aug. 17 – Eddie Butts
Aug. 24 – 5 Card Studs
Aug. 31 – Oil Can Harry
Sept. 7 – Love Monkeys
Sept. 14 – Screaming Cucumbers
Sept. 21 – Michael Scott Band

The Rock will continue to rock beyond just Saturday nights over the summer, with food trucks on Thursdays and yoga on Sunday mornings. Returning for its fourth year, the food truck rallies – featuring live music, kids activities and, of course, tasty meals on wheels – will start cooking on Thursday, June 6, from 5-9 p.m. through Aug. 29. Meanwhile, yoga will stretch it out on Sunday mornings from 10-11 a.m. beginning on June 2. Classes cost $14 a person – plus a free post-class drink at the Umbrella Bar.
