Milwaukee's Showcase Live Music Venue Since 1989

Give Us A Hand

Independent venues all across the nation, like Shank Hall, were the first to close and they will be the last to open. Organizations like National Independent Venue Association and Independent Promoter Alliance are trying to get everyone to contact their federal, state and local authorities to help give businesses like Shank Hall support so we can come back. In the meantime, we could use a little bit of a helping hand from you, in the form of gift certificates to future shows or even a direct donation. We thank you for whatever support you can give.
