From their website (https://madtownmannishboys.com/):
The Madtown Mannish Boys are a Madison-based Blues band who are steeped in Chicago-style Blues, including artists like Muddy Waters, Junior Wells, Otis Spann, Paul Butterfield, and Little Walter. They perform with raw exuberance and driving rhythms that make you want to boogie. Some of their tunes are harmonica-driven, played with gritty fervor and intense energy. Others are soulful ballads, heavily influenced by the likes of Otis Redding and Sam Cooke. This mix of styles and genres makes for an entertaining and dynamic show that you won’t want to miss.
YouTube video of The Madtown Mannish Boys - Get out of My Life, Woman @ the South Milwaukee Downtown "Music at the Market" (2021). You can find more videos of their music ;https://madtownmannishboys.com/?page_id=19|on their website].
The concerts are from 6:30 pm until 8:30 pm.
The current weather forecast for Friday night's concert doesn't look good, but we have our fingers crossed that the rainstorms will blow through and be over, before our event.
A decision will be made, about relocating or not, before the start of the concert. If the weather does not cooperate, then the concert will be moved indoors, a little ways down Segoe Road, to the Covenant Presbyterian Church, 326 S Segoe Road. Check the website home page for any updates (https://www.MidvaleHeights.org).
The three food trucks we had at last Friday's concert, Thailand in a Truck, Monsoon Siam, and Smoked B'bque, are expected for this concert also. And the last time the weather made the concert move to the church, the food trucks moved with us, and set up under an awning at the church, so you could make your purchases without getting wet.
We suggest that the food trucks be ready to starting serving around 5:45 pm.
Come and have a great time at our Summer Nights at Segoe concert!
It sounds like there may be a problem getting the Summer Nights at Segoe sign set up at the park, before tonight's concert, but the concert will go on.
Our next concert, on Friday, July 21, 2023 will be The Cajun Strangers (Traditional Cajun dance music).
The concerts are from 6:30 pm until 8:30 pm. We try to have the food trucks available, starting around 5:45 pm.
We expect 3 food carts. Two of them, Thailand in a Truck and Tennessee Smoke BBQ, were at our first two concerts, and the third one is Monsoon Siam, which was also at our first concert.
Come, bring your lawn chairs and or picnic blankets, and have a great time at our Summer Nights at Segoe concert!
Thank you to Denise Lamb and Lorie Raihala for all your work in organizing this year's concert series.
from 5:00 pm until 8:00 pm,
at Westmorland Park
The Westside Madison Good Neighbor Project (launched in 2021) is hosting a National Night Out Picnic at Westmorland Park on August 3rd and inviting area neighbors and city alders to join officers from the Madison Police Department for some food, fun and casual conversation!
Millions of neighbors take part in National Night Out (NNO) events across the country each year during the first week of August. Started in the 1980s, the purpose of National Night Out events is to promote and strengthen police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie which make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live.
In addition to food, refreshments and games, neighbors will have an opportunity to chat with command staff and neighborhood and patrol officers from MPD’s Midtown District who will be in attendance.
We are very grateful to the Westmorland Neighborhood Association and the Midvale Heights Community Association for sponsoring this community-building event!

Start cleaning out those closets—the Midvale Heights Community Association (MHCA) annual garage sale is weeks away. Official dates and times for this year’s sale are Friday, September 1, and Saturday, September 2, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Participants can choose to hold their sale on one or both days and set their own hours.
Registration this year is just $5.
More than 20 Midvale Heights neighbors usually participate in the sale. There is strength in numbers: the more homes participating, the bigger the crowds shopping the sales!
The MHCA advertises the sale on Craigslist, NextDoor, and other websites. Participants are encouraged to also advertise for added visibility.
A feature of the sale is an online map on the MHCA website (www.midvaleheights.org) that buyers can download to guide them through the sale. The $5.00 registration fee covers advertising, neighborhood signs, and maps for participants to distribute to sale shoppers. A packet containing sale guidelines, a sign designating participants, and maps for shoppers.

Marcel Wuethrich is giving a tour of the prairie restoration site next to the parking lot of the Odana Hills Golf Course on Saturday July 22 at 6pm.
The restoration was started in 2017 with the seeding of 50+ native plant species to foster habitat and nectar for pollinators. July is the
peak of the blooming time for native flowers so you can expect to see lots of pollinators including many species of butterflies, native bees,
bumblebees, dragonflies and a few species of nesting birds. The Midvale Heights Community Association continues to support the
maintenance of this 1.5 acres gem in the neighborhood.
A 4 page "Membership Messenger" is now being distributed to the residents of Midvale Heights. It has a registration form for the 2023 - 2025 membership period. You can also register online by using the link below:

There are three candidates running for Madison Mayor, Gloria Reyes, Scott Kerr, and Satya Rhodes-Conway. The two candidates getting the most votes in the February 21 Primary will advance to the April 4 Spring Election.
There was a Mayoral Forum, with the three candidates, held at the Sequoya Library, on January 30th.
The Midvale Heights Community Association invites residents to attend our annual meeting on Tuesday, October 25 at 6:30pm at the Sequoya Library to elect board members, enjoy complimentary seasonal refreshments and conversation, and learn about how we can help our wildlife neighbors!
The Wildlife Program Manager at the Dane County Human Society’s Wildlife Center Jackie Sandberg will share a free PowerPoint presentation: “Wisconsin Wildlife Rehabilitation: Caring for Sick and Injured Animals.”
We will also have a drawing and four attendees will receive a free compost bin! (Provided to interested neighborhood associations by the City of Madison to encourage composting).
Hope to see you there!
