Labor Day: Maybe the Best Weekend for Music Yet

It wouldn’t be a long holiday weekend without some killer bands to help you take full advantage of it. Remember to keep the doors open, lest these musicians blow them off. 

One Barrel in Egg Harbor is celebrating Sausage Fest with a Friday lineup that includes Bob Bero, 1-4 pm, and Johnny Wad, 4-8 pm, recreating the best of the ’80s and ’90s with a can’t-miss party attitude. Saturday will kick off with the Feel Good Kids, 12-3 pm, dazzling audiences with the hits of yesterday and today; and The Love Monkeys, 6-10 pm. On Sunday, the Sugarbush Boys will play 12-3 pm, and Off Brand will bring the energy and keep the party going, 4-8 pm. Finally, Bob Bero will return on Monday, 1-4 pm, to take us home.

It wouldn’t be a party without Sneezy – playing The Garage at Husby’s in Sister Bay Friday and Sunday, 8-11 pm – and the Raglanders, a five-piece group that blurs the lines between rock and country, taking the stage there Saturday.

Christopher Gold will deliver his music, storytelling and humor to the beer garden at the Door County Brewing Co. Music Hall & Taproom in Baileys Harbor on Saturday, 2-4:30 pm.

Stabbur Beer Garden in Sister Bay will host a trifecta of bands this weekend: Whiskey Ditch on Friday, 7-10 pm; the theatrical Model Citizens on Saturday, 7-10 pm; and Neva, 2-5 pm. And you get to perform 7-10 pm during the open mic. Get up on that stage!

On Sunday, Frank Maloney & His Big County Unit (see the story in this week’s issue) will perform at Marina Fest on the Waterfront Park main stage in Sister Bay, 6 pm; Big Mouth & The Power Tool Horns will bring down the house at Gibraltar Grill in Fish Creek, 6-10 pm; and Eric Lewis & Friends will close out the season at Fishstock, outside Fish Creek, at 7 pm. 

And that’s not even half of it. You can see the rest of the lineup in this week’s event calendar and at
