Music Al Fresco: Milwaukee's Saxophone Summer

"My favorite location is Miller Park, bar none," Scott Summers says. "Go Brewers!"

Summers is a saxophone player based in Milwaukee. He's been blowing the horn for 30 years — and about 10 years ago, he started playing on the street. Summers says performing outside the ballpark has brought him loyal followers.

"I got certain fans — you know, like season-ticket holders — [who] park at the north lot just so they can walk through the tunnel where I'm at," he says. "I found that very humbling. I didn't think they paid that much attention, but then people will walk by and say, 'No, we park in this lot just so we can hear you play.'

"I don't take it for granted," Summers says. "I really like the ability to influence people and make their day better."
