An advertising agency hosting free happy hour music concerts at a Madison music institution? Huh? Here’s how that just happened.
Well, Brad Czachor has served Andy Wallman many lunches. For years, they both worked near Hilldale Mall where Brad was the manager of the Great Dane Brew Pub & Brewing Company. Andy and the folks at KW2 made the Great Dane one of their haunts.
These days, Brad is still behind many lunches that KW2 folks are enjoying, as he recently bought the Harmony Bar and Grill from longtime owner Keith Daniels. In a calculated strategy to stalk Brad for the rest of his life, KW2 also recently moved to the east side, and we are once again Brad’s neighbors.
At the west-side office, KW2 hosted a free monthly music series for clients, employees and pals called Music:30. After the east-to-west move, James Mills, an journalist/blogger for the outdoor industry suggested having Music:30 concerts at the Harmony. Andy and Brad got to talking, and now KW2 and the Harmony Bar will debut Happy Music, a free monthly happy hour series.
The first concert will be October 17th, featuring longtime local Madison musicians, Biff Blumfumgagnge and Jay Moran. They will play from 5:00 to 6:00pm. Admission is free, so bring your mom. We’re working with many other great musicians to help make Happy Music a fun east-side tradition at the Harmony Bar and Grill, 2201 Atwood Avenue. The good folks at KW2 and the Harmony Bar hope to see you there.
