While Ziegler Art & Frame celebrates 50 years in the neighborhood
Amps on Admiral will be rocking the streets of Kendall Whittier on the first Saturday in June with four great local musical acts, food trucks, music merch and so much more!
The event coincides with the celebration of Ziegler’s 50th Anniversary weekend. Ziegler Art & Frame opened its doors at 6 N. Lewis in June of 1973, growing and expanding for decades.
Amps on Admiral kicks off at 4 p.m. June 3 with four performances, beer and food vendors and a free MordHouse Kids Zone. The event will wrap up at 9 p.m. It is free, open to the public and family and dog friendly.
The event opens with Township & Range, a band best described as “rural music.” They are deeply influenced by old-time country, bluegrass, blues and rockabilly. Township & Range plays from 4-4:45 p.m.
Immediately following, rock band Free Association takes the stage from 5:05-5:50 p.m. Free Association is a quintet of friends exploring heartfelt songs through a 1960s psychedelic rock lens.
Brujo Roots, a Latin-funk fusion band, brings a dance party atmosphere to Amps on Admiral. With elements of samba, blue, jazz and even reggae, Brujo Roots will perform from 6:10-7:10 p.m.
Capping off the night, Casii Stephan and the Midnight Sun will headline from 7:40-9 p.m., delighting guests with subtle vibrato notes and roller-coaster-like melodies.
While some seating will be provided, event host KWMS encourages attendees to bring their own lawn chairs.
The MordHouse Kids’ Zone will have yard games, chalk art, drawing and other fun activities throughout the event.
Calaveras Mexican Grill will be open for indoor and patio dining or take out, and will have their food truck open for quick service. Pollos Asados al Carbon food truck, behind She Brews Coffee, will also be open, as will Dante’s Woodfire Pizza food truck just down the street.
Those with a sweet tooth can stop by Cherry & Bark’s booth for ice cream and other delicious treats. Marshall Brewing Company will be on site with crisp and refreshing brews for sale.
Local bands, even those not performing, are invited to have a merch booth at the event. There is a $10 fee to cover the cost of providing a table and two chairs. Interested artists can sign up online.

About the Musicians
Township & Range
Township & Range is best described as “rural music,” as it is deeply influenced and informed by old-time country, folk, bluegrass, honky-tonk, blues, and rockabilly. The project’s name comes from the fact that many of the songs focus on local color and geography filtered through a personal lens.
Free Association is a quintet of friends exploring heartfelt songs through a 60s psychedelic rock lens. The band name derives from the ideas of freedom and lack of instruction.
Brujo Roots is a latin funk band that started by trying to capture the music the founding members grew up with while incorporating a modern jam/funk approach. In recent years the band has expanded their sound to include the sounds of the midwest while also digging deeper into their latin roots.
Casii Stephan and the Midnight Sun
Casii Stephan is a soul pop/rock artist hailing from Minnesota. Now based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the impassioned songstress evokes subtle vibrato notes and roller-coaster-like melodies, which immediately grab the listener, while her emotional lyrics share intimate stories. She has been compared to the likes of Florence Welch, Fiona Apple and Carole King, as her vocal timbre possesses a full and warm quality.
