Over the past decade the Vox Concert Series has worked to create a space where people within the community can experience live music, not just hear it. The original idea behind the concert series? Create a room within the community that could transform to host rock bands, blues, bluegrass, jazz, singer/songwriters, classical music, kids shows and even comedy acts!
Why do we host Vox concert events in Marshfield? The manager of the concert series grew up in Marshfield and returned to live here after stints in Minnesota and Milwaukee. A lot of his friends and peers have families; his mission is to provide a place in the community where they could experience culture more typical of a larger city without having to take the time, risk the weather, or incur the travel expense (gas, food, hotel, etc.) of going to a larger metropolitan area. Not to mention the challenge of making arrangements for the kids when taking those trips.
The aim of the Vox Concert Series is to provide access to quality, affordable entertainment in Central Wisconsin, with tickets ranging from free to $30 (depending on the nature of the event and caliber of the acts featured).
Since our first event in 2005, Vox has hosted more than 200 events within the community, including partnerships with charity fundraisers, currently averaging 35+ events per year. We feature high quality, recognizable acts such as Sam Llanas (formerly of the BoDeans), Tony Lucca (finalist on NBC’s The Voice), Matt White (featured performer on The Bachelorette), and Tyler Hilton (musician and movie/television actor: Walk the Line, One Tree Hill) to name a few. In addition to more famous names, we aspire to provide local musicians, very talented emerging musicians from Chicago, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, New York, Nashville, Austin, Los Angeles, and musicians from various other countries (New Zealand, Canada, England, Finland) a welcoming stage in Central Wisconsin.
We work very hard to make Vox an exceptional place to experience a concert – with intimate performances, crystal-clear sound, and without a bad seat in the room. Vox has been transforming Wildwood Station Pavilion into our 250-seat capacity listening room since 2008, but you’ve never seen it quite like this. In 2014, Vox concert events held at Wildwood Station include a reserved seating option, offering an up-front view of the stage and a table to set your drink. General admission seating will also be available. We want every seat to be great, and to meet that goal we have increased our stage lighting and added a raised stage! As always, concert-goers are welcome (and encouraged) to bring their own beverages in personal-size coolers.
We hope you will join us a few evenings for a memorable concert experience!
