The Milwaukee Police Band performed our annual winter concert on Saturday, February 9th, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. at 144 E. Wells Street, at the Pabst Theater. Our concert was dedicated to P.O. Michael Michalski, a member of the support staff of the band since 2001. Please enjoy some of the photos captured on that night. And, thank you to all who attended the concert with well over 800 people in attendance.
Police Officer Michael Michalski passed away on Wednesday, July 25, 2018, at the age of 52. Officer Michalski was killed that evening by the armed felon he was attempting to arrest.
Since 1999, Mike has been a versatile member of the Milwaukee Police Band, acting as a stagehand at our annual concerts, banner carrier in our parades and transporter of band instruments and equipment around the city and country for us as we have traveled to perform. Mike, married to Susan, our Children’s Coordinator for our concerts, is also the father of John, one of our vocalists, and brother-in-law of Director Dubis and Band Photographer Starr.
