Walt Hamburger and Jason Lemke Perform on Local 5 This Morning

Local News

Before Appleton’s Mile of Music Festival kicks off Thursday, local musicians Walt Hamburger and Jason Lemke stopped by Local 5 This Morning with a live performance. 

Born in Green Bay, Walt Hamburger has been performing in bands and as a solo artist for more than 18 years. He will play alongside guitarist and singer Jason Lemke, a Green Bay local, at this year’s Mile of Music: Mile Six. 

Hamburger’s music isn’t his only passion. He is an avid animal lover and has raised more than $18,000 for animal shelters through the Walt Hamburger Foundation since Mile of Music: Mile Three. 

During his performances at Mile of Music Hamburger collects donations for his foundation. Last year he raised about $4,300 and this year he aims to raise $5,000. 

Hamburger is taking his non-profit foundation a step further. He is now raising money to support youth arts as well as our furry friends.
