Gibraltar is pleased to welcome Father Sky! $5 cover 21+ "Young Milwaukee pianist-singer-composer Anthony Deutsch has old-soul wisdom and speaks to people about matters of the heart, and the mind/body disconnect that often separates us from our own nature and from Nature. The style recalls the spare tunesmithing of The Bad Plus’ Ethan Iverson, bolstered by Father Sky bassist John Christensen and drummer Devin Drobka. But Deutsch loves Nina Simone. His bluesy-gospel singing deeply abides her forlorn, loamy eloquence—her world-weary persistence and faith. To me, he also mirrors the exquisite jazz singer-pianist Andy Bey—the naked willingness to reveal male vulnerability. Still, Deutsch’s Father Sky-meets-Mother Earth sensibility tends a personal ecological vision, like someone picking bits of grimy dust out of a spider’s web. Deutsch croons, but his spacious baritone sometimes projects like a wolf howling at the moon. He leans on the sustain pedal and major keys, but the piano also dapples sun-lit atmospherics. “Soon, My Love” has a funky kick Gil Scott-Heron would dig. “Gonna Find Home” yearns for a home that’s everywhere, like the holy land Lakota Black Elk spoke of. This beguiling talent might just take you away, home." (Father Sky: Father Sky - By Kevin Lynch - 8 August, 2017) “Some of the most brilliant music I have ever heard came from birds in the park. It is simply too arduous a task to define what influences an artist and what does not. Ultimately I suppose it depends what you recognize music to be.”
By popular demand, Gibraltar brings you a very special performance by the legendary Rusty Pelicans backed by Fortune on the Decks for the duration of the evening. Get there early. 21+ $5 cover Dance or Lounge, it's up to you.
Best Manhattan I've had in Milwaukee! Evan and the bartenders were so welcoming. It feels like a place you can have a unique experience and feel at home.
A hidden gem in MKE. Owner is an inspiring flamenco guitar player with great ideas for cultivating a diverse, cultivated music scene in a stellar environment. Best surprise of 2017 so far. Will definitely be back.
Great addition to Milwaukee's downtown area! My hubby and I decided to end our date night here. It had everything I hoped it would. Good drinks, great music, and a great mix of people. The decor was both relaxing, and inviting, and made you want to sit back and really enjoy yourself.
