Jersey Street Music Festival Lineup

Monday Specials
A two-man wrecking crew from Milwaukee. It’s sorta like the blues, if the blues were made of hellfire and whiskey. And, let’s be honest, the best stuff always is.
Misha Siegfried
2013 WAMI Best Guitarist nominee
"A guitar virtuoso..." ~Shepherd Express
" Misha Siegfried and the Up and Under house band are known as one of the tightest acts in town..." ~OnMilwaukee
"Misha Siegfried prooved he could hang with the best of them and gave us a full night filled with smoking riffs!... (he) proceeded to blast the roof off the place with his performance." ~Wassup! Wausau, WI.
Misha Siegfried

Ghost Wolves
The Ghost Wolves' name mirrors the ferocious, primal sounds the Austin duo conjure from drums (Jonny Wolf) and guitar (Carley Wolf), and acknowledges Carley's upbringing among a pack of hybrid wolves on her family's Texas ranch.
Grunge/Lounge trio Mutts sound “like Tom Waits auditioning for GWAR” according to the Chicago Tribune. Do312 named the keys-based band a Top 5 Chicago act to see, saying, “Tom Waits this, Tom Waits that… It’s simple, this band is f***ing awesome."
The Madpolecats unique form of entertainment was developed by fusing together traditional bluegrass instruments with reggae/ska/punk influences, making rastabilly music or, skunkgrass.
Mixed Nuts
We started with a couple of guys just jamming at friends' houses, and in 2013 we formed our band and started playing at various bars. We have since been asked to play for different community functions for Mayville, Juneau, Horicon, and Waupun along with bars and parks.
Parallel mixes vocals, piano, electric cello, drums and bass/guitar to deliver its own brand of rocking poetry. From high energy, driving rhythms to rich, dark, emotive melodies, parallel provides a captivating juxtaposition of texture and instrumentation in its approach to acoustic indie rock.
Ukulele Club of Dodge Cty.
The Ukulele Club of Dodge County is a club for people of all skill levels to engage and share their interest in playing ukulele. Bringing members together from all over Dodge County and playing repertoire as varied as their members. UC/DC is always a crowd favorite.
Ukulele Club of Dodge Cty.

CJ Niehoff and fellow musicians in the group go by the name Jamfoot. From the friendly lands of Texas where we call home, to Europe and throughout the world, Jamfoot has traveled and played, in one form or another to thousands of people over many years.
While the winter snow buried his hometown of Milwaukee, Brett Newski hibernated to South Africa, touring, couch surfing and writing songs for the “Hi-Fi D.I.Y. EP.” His car broke down on day one of the tour, food poisoning set in on day five and his train car fell under attack by robbers on a trip from Johannesburg to Durban, inspiring the song “No Anchor,” a song about diving face-first into the world alone with no safety net.
The Crave Wives
The Crane Wives are a home grown indie-folk outfit from Grand Rapids, Michigan. They utilize three-part vocal harmonies, eclectic instrumentation, and a passion for song-craft to create organic music that is both accessible and innovative. Each live show features contagious energy as well as original music that ranges from whisper quiet ballads to danceable grooves.
Juiceboxxx is an American artist, producer and performer. Since the age of 15, he has been barn burning all over the world with little regard for convention and a lot of guts and tension. In a world of bullshit, JB puts it all on the line, every time. What’s more, Chuck D from Public Enemy once called Juiceboxxx “the Buddy Holly of Hip Hop.”
In the age of electronic pop music it's not easy for a band to break into the genre and hold their own. GGOOLLDD is a local Milwaukee band whose indie take on the genre has earned them a growing following. There is something grabby about GGOOLLDD. Small wonder GGOOLLDD is crashing through the music festival scene, landing performances at Summerfest, Summerset, and SXSW. ~ Haley Keith. Urban Milwaukee
