One Little Light On (Groovesburg Joys)

Paul Cebar is usually thought of as a bandleader, exploring Afro-Caribbean-American music with the Milwaukeeans and—in an earlier epoch—the R&B Cadets. But Cebar began as a soloist in the late ’70s and in recent years has opened for Nick Lowe, Chris Smither and others with just a guitar in hand...

Now, amid swirling and hopeful reports that Lauderdale’s been collaborating with Milwaukee’s own Paul Cebar...

Tonight @ Humboldt Park, 6:30 p.m.

Bay View’s popular Chill on the Hill summer concert series returns to the expansive band shell in Humboldt Park tonight with a performance from one of the city’s most celebrated musicians: Paul Cebar, who is nearly synonymous with Milwaukee (his longtime band was even christened The Milwaukeeans), even though he draws from sounds born far to the south of us, namely the steamy, Cajun-spiked R&B of New Orleans. A haven for...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, May 28, Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers @ Vnuk’s Lounge, 8:30 p.m. While the resilient “King of the Hill” probably keeps royalties flowing to Roger Clyne, who penned the show’s theme song with his ’90s country-rock band, The Refreshments, Clyne has spent the...

David Greenberger met Herb on a trip to Palm Springs, Calif., when he was in his 20s, and their encounter changed his life. Herb wasn't like anyone Greenberger had ever met, and they quickly hit it off. Although Herb was more than three times Greenberger's age, Greenberger didn't view him as just some octogenarian. He saw him as a friend.

Tonight @ Shank Hall - 8 p.m.

Although Paul Cebar is synonymous with Milwaukee (for years his band was even named “The Milwaukeeans”), much of his appeal is that his music sounds nothing like anything us from our cold, snow-covered Midwestern city. Cebar instead taps the southest of the south—steamy, New Orleans-inspired R&B and shades of tropical world music—which should make his 8 p.m. show at Shank Hall tonight a welcome respite from...

Who better to headline Friday night of Bastille Days, Milwaukee’s annual four-day, French-culture celebration, than Paul Cebar, the man who, with his Milwaukeeans, made danceable, New Orleans-styled R&B a staple of our city’s music scene? Tonight at 7 p.m., Cebar performs with his new outfit, Tomorrow...
