Make Music Madison on June 21, 2018

On Thursday, June 21, 2018, the City of Madison hosts an annual music celebration called Make Music Madison. Middleton Jazz will be participating in this event with a 6:00 p.m. performance at Hoyt Park, 3902 Regent Street, Madison, WI. We will be in a shelter and it should be a perfect night to bring a picnic dinner and enjoy music in the park. Following Middleton Jazz will be two excellent big bands from Madison College playing until 9:00 p.m.

Many of our musicians can be found playing in other venues throughout the day on Wednesday as well. Check out the schedule in the current issue of Isthmus, or on-line at

Because of our members’ involvement in Make Music Madison, Middleton Jazz will not rehearse the morning of June 21, 2018. Please come and see us in Hoyt Park Thursday evening!


Strollin’ Middleton Draws a Crowd

On September 8th we were honored to be part of the Strollin’ Middleton 2017 event sponsored by the Greater Madison Jazz Consortium and the Middleton Community Development Authority. Our preparation was covered by the Middleton Times-Tribune and the event itself was very well attended. Thanks to Craig Mason and Debbie Trexel for the photos.

Great Turnout at Capitol Lakes

We were delighted to return to Capitol Lakes for a Saturday evening performance on July 15, 2017. We had a great turnout, the audience was very appreciative, and we enjoyed a reception in the Encore Room afterward. The videos of “Sugar Blues” and “Iko Iko” below were from that wonderful evening.
