Divide by Zero, Calypso Vision ready for ‘Let There Be Music Madison!’

MADISON – A local band that plays a range of music from upbeat blues to class rock will entertain at “Let There Be Music Madison!” on July 22 at 6 p.m. A week later, the audience can enjoy the sounds of Calypso Vision.

The concert series will continue through September on Old Black Bear’s patio in downtown Madison. Old Black Bear’s main entrance is at 212 Main St., and the patio area is accessible from Martin Street.

Let There Be Music Madison! concerts eventually will move to a permanent home at the new outdoor amphitheater in Home Place Park, just south of downtown. MVP and Madison Arts Council are partners in fundraising for construction of a performance pavilion in the park.

“This year is going to be bigger and better than years past,” MAC President Tina Clark said. “MAC and MVP have forged a new path to lead to better events to enrich the citizens of Madison.”

“MVP supports the City of Madison’s mission to improve the quality of life for all citizens. With philanthropic support, MVP can partner with city goals and stretch funding dollars to positively impact local projects,” MVP Executive Director Liz Brinton said.

For July 22, Divide by Zero strives to play a solid variety of music, from classic rock to funk to the blues. Band members enjoy an enthusiastic crowd and want audience members to get out of their seats and dance.

Divide by Zero constantly works of new material, and their playbook is full of crowd favorites, like “Sharp Dressed Man,” ZZ Top, “Play That Funky Music,” Wild Cherry, “Sweet Home Alabama,” Lynyrd Skynyrd; “Hotel California,” Eagles; “Wanted Dead or Alive,” Bon Jovi; “Today,” Smashing Pumpkins; and “Jailhouse Rock,” Elvis Presley.
