MILWAUKEE — Three part harmonies, frisky fiddling, and an unparalleled energy is what makes the Milwaukee trio The WhiskeyBelles so entertaining to watch.

The band is made up of Chrissy Dzioba Globes (guitar and vocals), Kimberly Unger (fiddle and vocals), and Sara Moilanen (bass and vocals).

This is the 12th year in a row that The WhiskeyBelles played at Summerfest. They've gradually risen from the noon band to later and later shows. In 2021, they opened for Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. In the 12 years they have been a band, they produced four albums.
