Chill on the Hill Enters Its Ninth Year; BVNA Announces 2013 Call for Bands
February 23, 2013
The BVNA has announced the Call for Bands for Chill on the Hill's ninth season. Chill on the Hill is an outdoor, summer local music concert series that takes place on Tuesday nights at Humboldt Park. This year's dates are June 4th through August 27th.
The BVNA operates the concert series in partnership with the Milwaukee County Parks, with the support of numerous local sponsors, including area restaurants, vendors and organizations, as well as in-kind donations.
Chill on the Hill was named Best Outdoor Concert Series by the Milwaukee Magazine in 2010. Crowds can reach up to 3000 people on popular nights.
Chill on the Hill features local bands, but those with a Bay View connection are considered over those without a Bay View connection. "We have a commitment to local, original music at Chill on the Hill, so we're looking for an eclectic mix of musical genres with family-friendly acts," explained Carol Voss, the BVNA's Chill on the Hill music series founder and Entertainment Chair.
Local bands are encouraged to submit their bands' information, adhering to this list of requirements, to Carol Voss by the end of the day on Sunday, March 17th, 2013. Submissions or inquiries mush be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Chill on the Hill" in the subject line. Respectfully, absolutely no late entries can be accommodated due to the large number of submissions.
Bands are encouraged to submit their information even if their bands weren't selected in the past. Rained-out performances are always invited back the following year. "It can take bands a few years due to limited dates, previous rain-outs, and our desire to offer a variety," Voss cautions. Openers must be acoustic or up to a three-piece band.
Carol Voss and the BVNA Board thank you for your interest!
