Rock Country is a bar, restaurant and music venue at  Milwaukee's Northwest Side. We're a Souther Rock-themed venue owned by Brian Ward who also owns Ward's House Of Prime and three Point Burgers in Milwaukee. Rock Country includes a restaurant and full bar on the main floor and a 9,000-square foot music venue with a stage, dance floor, and bar on the lower level. This completely newly renovated space has become the epicenter of great live music, world-class food, and stiff drinks. At Rock, Country Music takes 'center stage and intends to keep making a huge impact on the music scene in town for many years to come. We're currently booking bands for the late summer and early fall calendar.

The Opportunity

Located on Silver Spring Rd, Rock Country was formerly Jokerz Comedy Club space. Since the venue was already set up to accommodate live performances, we took the space in a completely different direction and created the hottest southern Rock hang out in town. Located between Silk Exotic Gentlemen's Club and Milwaukee Harley-Davidson, we're centrally located and easy to get to for any local or out of towners. We're currently looking for unique bands that match our vibe and can draw well in Brooklyn. If you have the great sound and think you would fit well on the bill, please apply!

If you're looking to get involved in the Milwaukee music scene, this has been a launchpad for numerous bands building their fanbase in Wisconsin. 

We have more dates available than those listed. If you're interested in playing our venue, apply and we'll send you availabilities that we think fit your band!
