Make Music Madison will take place outside on the Bierock patio on Tuesday June 21 with four artists performing throughout the afternoon and into the evening.
An annual tradition in the city, Make Music Madison takes place outdoors on the summer solstice. It’s part of international Make Music Day, which takes place in over 1,000 cities in 120 countries.
In the past, over 1,000 musicians have taken part in more than 380 shows at more than 100 venues in Madison alone.
The performance schedule outside Bierock is as follows…
- 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. Dead Sea Squirrels—Rock, Blues, Folk
- 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Pablo the Fish—Indie Folk, Indie Rock

- 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. Uncle JIM—Folk, Pop, Indie-Rock
Dead Sea Squirrels features Richard on guitar and vocals and Emily on uke and vocals. They take rock, blues and folk for a spin with a few originals thrown in for good measure.
Pablo the Fish is Nick and Cam, who have always loved music and started playing instruments and singing at young ages. Cam’s background is in piano and vocals. Nick has a background in guitar and saxophone and played in the UW Marching Band. This will be one of Pablo the Fish’s first public performances.
Still Jaded After All These Years features guitar, keyboards, saxophone, vocals, percussion, and the occasional cello and trombone. They do covers of pop, rock, jazz, country, and folk tunes from all eras but admittedly heavy on the 60s and 70s stuff.
Uncle JIM is an Indie Folk-Pop group based out of Madison, WI and is comprised of members Janie, Marcus, Isaac and Brandon. Janie has been creating originals for the better part of 10 years and her songs are written to reflects life’s beauty as well as its more somber moments. Some songs are uttered with a soulful anger while others comprise more playful melodies.
Bierock will have its full food and drink menu available the day of the event.
There is no cover charge but tipping the musicians is encouraged.
Located at 2911 N. Sherman Ave., Bierock is part of the Northside TownCenter and across the street from Warner Park.
