Description [edit]
Constructed in 1882, Turner Hall began as a showplace for the panoramic painters and other German immigrant artists who dominated the Milwaukee art scene until the 1920s and throughout the early 1900s. It is the only building in Milwaukee that currently holds the three following honorary architectural and historical designations: a National Landmark, a listing on the National Registry of Historic Places, and a local Historical Landmark. Located in the heart of downtown, across from the BMO Harris Bradley Center, the two-story, 7,000 - plus square foot Ballroom is a central hub for a vast array of events in Milwaukee.

Sirius XM presents Galactic + The Hip Abduction

Itís been more than 20 years since Ben Ellman, Robert Mercurio, Stanton Moore, Jeff Raines and Rich Vogel began exploring the seemingly limitless musical possibilities born out of their work together as Galactic. Since then, the seminal New Orleans band has consistently pushed artistic boundaries on the road and in the studio, approaching their music with open ears and drawing inspiration as much from the sounds bubbling up from their cityís streets as they do from each other. Hailing from St. Petersburg, FL, The Hip Abduction are known for their high-energy, emphatically danceable shows that combine West African instrumentation (specifically, the kamale ngoni) with dub bass lines, reggae rhythms, and indie pop acumen. The ensemble released their third and most recent studio album "Gold Under The Glow" in March of 2016.
