Rockin’ the Chippewa Riverfront is an afternoon of live, outdoor music that everyone in the family will love from two of Chippewa Falls’ favorite bands – The Jerry Way Band and The Mark Healey & Jim Schuh Duo.

There is no better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than soaking up the sun and your favorite tunes from the 1930s to today at Chippewa Falls’ Chippewa Riverfront Park amphitheater. Bring your chairs, blankets and picnic baskets, but don’t expect to sit for long as this music will have you up on your feet – dancing, singing, and clapping your hands! Part of the Pure Water Days weekend and the 150th anniversary of the incorporation of Chippewa Falls. No cost for admission.

The Jerry Way Band plays up-beat, good-time music that folks of all ages know and love. With many hundreds of gigs under their belt, these guys know how to entertain! Jerry Way handles lead vocals and guitar, backed vocally and instrumentally by his two sons: Andy Way-keyboards and Rob Way-bass. The group’s blazing horn line features the legendary Bill "Buck" Buchholtz on trumpet and Michael Walk on tenor saxophone. The band is underpinned by the powerful drive of Ron Gard's drums. You just possibly may know every song they play PLUS you’ll love the WAY they play them! Music styles include rock, pop, country, swing, and polka.

The Mark Healey and Jim Schuh Duo formed in 2015. Mark and Jim each began playing music during the mid-1960s. Mark has been in the world famous band Badfinger since 1986, and recently released his CD Inside Out that is getting air play in 55 countries. Jim played in his band Schuh Fly from 2012 to 2018, but before that he was in a dozen bands including the American Tea Company that had a #1 hit on the local radio. As a duo Mark and Jim perform a variety of classic rock songs that they really like. Artists covered include Badfinger, Beatles, Bob Dylan, Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly, and much more.
