GNF 2024 The Greatest Show in Town Theme

The Middleton Good Neighbor Festival is put on by a group of dedicated volunteers from Middleton service clubs and nonprofit organizations.  When you come to the festival, you’re supporting the good works these groups do in the community!

The festival has a different theme each year.  This year the theme is “The Greatest Show in Town”.

We encourage you to have fun with the circus theme – run our 5k in clown shoes, help your child decorate a circus wagon for the Infinity Martial Arts Kiddie Parade, or enter a circus-themed float in the Good Neighbor Festival parade and maybe win a prize!  We’re looking forward to seeing you center ring at the 2024 Good Neighbor Festival!

Friday, August 23rd

5 to 7 pm

The Mascot Theory

The Mascot Theory has been kicking around Wisconsin weekend-warrior style for the past decade, but like many musicians, the great pandemic-induced entertainment halt of 2020 forced the band to reflect and refocus musical efforts. With the core foundation of singer/songwriter Erik Kjelland and the rhythm section of Nick Fry on bass guitar and Paul Metz on drums, The Mascot Theory used this time off to slightly shift their sound away from their acoustic-driven folk-rock music and into a more classic rock inspired Rock and Roll groove, especially thanks to the addition of lead guitarist Cory who brings a strong musical swagger and reverence to the guitar gods of the past.

8 pm to midnight

SuperTuesday

SuperTuesday takes their cues from artists like Bon Jovi, Brothers Osborne, Journey, Michael Jackson, Little Big Town, Luke Bryan, Billy Idol, Pat Benatar, Pitbull, Poison, Bruno Mars, Guns N Roses, and Luke Combs (just to name a few). Now they’re bringing their drink-raising, dance-a-billy, funfest skills to the next level with a tour level fully synchronized lighting and video show. Performances are more fun than a barrel of monkeys, thanks to our slightly crazy SUPER fans and a fair amount of Bud Light.

Panchromatic Steel Band

Founded in 2016 in Madison, Wisconsin, Panchromatic Steel has blazed an entirely new trail in the city’s music scene, fusing island styles with pop hits, rock and jazz into a high-energy blend that is hard to categorize but easy to love. With top-shelf multi- instrumentalism and wide-ranging appeal, Panchromatic’s music brightens any day, transports listeners to their happiest moments in the sun, and threads the needle by being artful yet accessible to virtually everyone.

 

2:30 to 6:30 pm

The Jimmy’s

The Jimmys is an award-winning festival favorite bringing people together from coast to coast, Canada, Europe, and the Caribbean since 2010! The Jimmys feature band leader Jimmy Voegeli phenomenal Hammond B-3 keyboardist, singer and songwriter; an experienced killer rhythm section steeped in blues with Perry Weber on guitar, Chris Sandoval on drums and John Wartenwieler on bass and the icing on the cake is the best horn section in the Midwest—Pete Ross on saxophone, Chad Wittinghill on trumpet and Joe Goltz on trombone. It doesn’t get any better than this – The Jimmys will deliver!

7:30 to 11:30 pm

The LoveMonkeys

The LoveMonkeys have been a top drawing band in Wisconsin for 30+ years! It’s obvious this boy band never takes for granted the importance of putting on a great show. Their high-energy, jam-packed performances are filled with pop hits, reggae rhythms and one-of-a-kind medleys. Though no two LoveMonkeys shows are alike, the band always welcomes their devoted fans who often travel miles to dance on stage or shake a tambourine with the guys. As enthusiastic and musically strong as ever, don’t miss the opportunity to catch a LoveMonkeys’ show this celebratory year!
