    Cellist Janet Schiff and Percussionist Victor DeLorenzo (founding drummer of ​Violent Femmes) create the bold and vibrant new sound of NINETEEN THIRTEEN.

    A cello made in Romania in the year of 1913 and a set of drums made in modern day America entertain each other in a haunting, melodic dance that suggests mystery, romance and future thought​.​  Original​ ​compositions and looping are by Schiff while beat brushes and ​vocals ​​are by DeLorenzo.

    The cello is from 1913​ but​ the music is from today!

    NINETEEN THIRTEEN won a Wisconsin Area Music Industry Award (WAMI) for Jazz Artist of the Year and were featured on Fox 6 Milwaukee, The Arts Page on PBS and NPR’s Lake Effect. As a very busy chamber rock ensemble, NINETEEN THIRTEEN has performed at BMO Harris Pavilion, Bastille Days, Summerfest, The Pabst Theatre, The Pfister Hotel, Turner Hall, Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts, The Museum of Wisconsin Art, Milwaukee Art Museum and Racine Art Museum, all in the past year!

About Us

The Bay Restaurant located right in the middle of the Whitefish Bay Downtown Business District has started its own history in the building that was first constructed in 1955 to be a liquor store for Clarence and Sylvia Schallert. The building was an expansion of Clarence Schallert’s existing career as a wholesale liquor salesman. The Schallerts were granted the first liquor license in the village’s history to open their store.

Enjoy some of the best dishes served in Whitefish Bay in a warm and inviting neighborhood hangout. Open brick and dark original hardwoods set the tone for a deep, well-versed wine list and craft brew selection that goes beyond your everyday amber selections.

The Bay’s appetizers will tempt your palette with savory Salmon Cakes complemented with a one of a kind homemade remoulade. Or try the Jordan River dates stuffed with a combination of chorizo, crumbled smoked bacon, Wisconsin goat cheese fondue, and topped with blueberry puree.

In a world where restaurants go for quantity, trying to make the “giant burger”, they often fall short on flavor. The Bay’s hamburgers are made perfectly sized with a multiplier of quality created with fresh ingredients and just the right combination of toppings creating an experience you will want to come back for again and again. All burgers are hand pattied with fresh ground beef from our neighborhood Sendik’s.
