With influences ranging from Outkast to Led Zeppelin to Bach, Fresh Cut Collective has attracted an audience as diverse as the members themselves. This septet represents diversity, not only musically, but in terms of background, personality, and style.

Yes, the group calls itself a "hip-hop band" as the music is built within the guidelines of that genre, but Fresh Cut’s musical pedigree allows the group to slink in and out of genres, feels, and textures, fusing hip-hop with a variety of musical forms.

Skyline Music is presented by COA Youth & Family Centers, which has been supporting Milwaukee children and families since 1906. In addition to great music, Skyline provides food for purchase and activities for kids. Shows are performed against a spectacular backdrop of downtown Milwaukee. Skyline Music is in Kadish Park, which is on E. North Avenue between Holton and Humboldt.
