Summer 2019 Kick-Off Weekend!

Hey people! We're stoked for a great summer season of shows, and it starts this Thursday night at The Landing at Hoyt Park. Christopher and Jonnie will be playing an acoustic duo show to kick off the Summer of 2019. This awesome beer garden in Wauwatosa (right behind the Tosa Pool) is super chill, great beers on tap, and some solid food options - or bring your own picnic!

We'll be playing this Thursday 5/23 from 5-8pm



Fall Shows 2018

Hey peeps! We've got a slower schedule through the fall but still have some really fun places for you to come see the boys in Bockenplautz, starting this Friday!

Click links on each event to get more info on our Facebook page!

And as always, hit us up if you know of another great place we could play, or if you'd like to hire us for a private event.



Door County Tour Mach VI is a go!

We've had a pretty remarkable last few weeks with the band, playing new venues including our first ever time playing at Summerfest! The gig on July 4th at the Briggs and Stratton stage will always stand out as a true accomplishment for us in the band, and we're so happy we got a chance to do it. When we started our group in 2011, we set a goal to play at Summerfest someday - we now need to set some new goals, evidently!

We've been doing a tour up in Door County now for the last 5 years, and our trip in 2018 promises to be the most fun yet. This year we're playing gigs for the Sister Bay Summer Concert Series again, as well as Kitty's in Sturgeon Bay. Saturday night we'll be playing for the fine folks at Al Johnsons in Sister Bay at the Stabbur beer garden. Promises to be an awesome night of music and fun for all. Can't believe it's the 6th trip we've made, and we hope to keep doing it for years to come.

For more specific information on tour dates and times, check out the "shows" page, or our tour page on the Facebook site for our group HERE.

Much love,

The boys in Bockenplautz


Summerfest in 2 days!!!

We are so excited to be playing at Summerfest in Milwaukee for the first time this week. Being a part of the World's Largest Music Festival, aka THE BIG GIG has been a goal of ours since we started this band in 2011 and we are incredibly honored to be playing there.

This Wednesday, July 4th, we'll be at the Briggs and Stratton stage from noon-1:30pm, and we hope to see a ton of our fans, family, and friends in the crowd!

Start off your 4th of July celebrations with us and hang out for the day on the Lakefront listening to music!

Facebook event is HERE.

And don't forget, our 6th annual MKE boat line concert cruise is this Friday night, 7/6! More info on that one is HERE.



Just announced - Bockenplautz at Summerfest!!!

We are pleased as hell to announce that we've been able to secure a gig playing this year at Summerfest, aka The Big Gig, aka the world's largest music festival!

We'll be playing Noon-1:30pm at the Brigg's & Stratton Big Backyard stage, ostensibly opening for Gavin Degraw who goes on stage just a short 8 hours later. Yes we'll be claiming for the rest of our band career that we opened for him. He's now our biggest fan!

Hope to see a ton of familiar faces in the crowd from the Big Backyard stage!

And don't forget, 2 days later we take our acoustic powerpop rock show out onto Lake Michigan for our 6th annual Milwaukee Boat Line Summer Concert Series booze cruise aboard the Vista King - tickets for that are $20 in advance and get you admission to a 2 hour boat cruise onto Lake Michigan with the summerfest fireworks going off over the Milwaukee Skyline. Can't be beat. Tickets are available HERE!
