Summer 2016 is gonna be the best, you guys. For real.

We have so many fun gigs lined up for this summer. May is a quiet month of mental and spiritual preparation for us in what can only be described as a summer onslaught of acoustic powerpop. For real, you guys.

Be sure to get your tickets ASAP for the Milwaukee Boat line gig on 6/17/18 at! We sold out the show last year, all 150 tickets!

Door County Tour has lined up nicely, and we'll be playing three official gigs up there from Wednesday July 13 through Saturday July 17. All free and open to the public. Plus probably a couple spontaneous performances, and perhaps another speed boat rental or two. WOO HOO!

We're playing again for our friends up at Big Cedar Lake, the Denim Park Summer Concert Series, and The Landing at Hoyt Park. Couldn't swing a gig this year at the State Fair due to vacation plans, but we'll try to make it happen next year.

We were discussing things as a band, and we just wanted everyone to know how grateful we are for the support we've been gettting. Over the last month, we've played two of our best gigs ever as we approach 100 shows with this band - at Mo's Irish Pub downtown, and a return gig to the Potawatomi Casino. These are the type of shows we initially set out to play with our group, and it is so awesome to see them come to fruition. Thanks.

And special thanks to our amazing sound guy, Jesus Soundmen, aka Andy Gasziorwoski. Working hard to make us sound better isn't an easy job, but it does occasionally involve a free shot of Fireball. WELL DONE ANDY GAS!


Spring shows and summer awesomeness

Upcoming great shows at Mo's Irish Pub, Potawatomi Casino, and the upcoming DOOR COUNTY TOUR IV with stops at Sister Bay summer concert series, Kitty O'Reillys, and Husby's Food and Spirits in Sister Bay! Other shows up there pending, too...

And we may have a really great announcement coming up in the next couple weeks. Stay tuned!


Last gig of the year!

Awesome times up in Appleton on Saturday night - had a great gig with our friends in More Then Merry at Chadwicks. Bar was PACKED!

See you this Friday night at 9pm at The Social at the Castle, the new music venue space at Burke's Irish Castle in Milwaukee for our last gig of the year!


Fall schedule is ROCKING

Hey BNP'ers - just a quick update on gigs for the band through the fall.

Sept 19, 2015- Washington Highlands Oktoberfest! 2nd annual party in the Washington Highlands of Wauwatosa, with benefits from the event going towards the Washington Highlands Historic Preservation Corporation. Playing 8-10pm. Earlier in the day come hear music from Matt Tyner and Evan Christian!

Nov 14, 2015 - returning to Chadwick's in Appleton, WI! WOO HOO!

Nov 20, 2015 - playing once again at Burke's Irish Castle in Milwaukee as part of their opening series of concerts featuring their new performance space, "The Social at the Castle"! Great new PA, lighting, and generalized mayhem.

Hope to see you at a gig sometime soon!


Bockenplautz Door County Tour III: The Sturgeoning

Heya peeps!

Two weeks of just awesome gigs for the BNP, playing at the Casino June 26 and then for a festival crowd on the Vista King for the Milwaukee Boat Line Summer concert Series on Friday July 3rd during the US Bank fireworks! 150 people on the boat, totally sold out, and just an awesome crowd. We had a total blast!

We're returning for an abbreviated trip up to Door County this coming weekend for our third Door County tour. This year we've arranged two great gigs in Sturgeon Bay, only blocks away from each other!

We'll be staying at the Holiday Music Motel for the weekend, which also promises to be fun - it's a music- themed retro 50's motel that is a home to many travelling musicians in the area, and is owned in part by Jackson Browne and Pat MacDonald (of Timbuk 3 fame).

Hope to see some familiar faces up in Door County, and definitely make some new friends and win over some new fans!
