Hey Ocean! kicks off series of sponsored summer events in Wisconsin

MILWAUKEE (June 24, 2013) – U.S. Cellular will celebrate the day leading up to Summerfest 2013 with a free pre-event concert featuring Juno Awards 2013 "Breakthrough Group of the Year" nominee Hey Ocean! at Cathedral Square Park in downtown Milwaukee on Tuesday, June 25, from 6 - 7 p.m. The concert is open to the public and is the first in a series of U.S. Cellular-sponsored events in Wisconsin this summer.

Green Bay Packer all-time leading receiver, Super Bowl Champion and Dancing with the Stars Champion Donald Driver will also be in attendance to help launch the festivities.
