Door County Tour 2014

What a fantastic night we had again playing for the nice people at the Milwaukee Boat Line last Saturday night for the summer concert series. The weather held out, and at the end of the night we got a surprise hit of fog that was eerily spooky and kinda cool. Hoping they'll have us back again next year!

No shows for the rest of June, but next month we've got some great fun in store - going back up to Door County for a 5 day tour with the band, playing 3 official shows and perhaps some unofficial shows as well:

We'll also be playing on July 24th again at the Landing at Hoyt Park, the new Wauwatosa beer garden. Had a wonderful time there last month, and really looking forward to playing there again!

Can't wait to get up to Door County next month!

Also, as many of you know, Jonnie fractured his left wrist in a mountain biking accident last month, and we had to cancel our show at the Potawatomi casino in MKE. We're hoping to reschedule for the fall, so stay tuned for that. Jonnie is healing well, and has actually been able to do three shows over the last two weeks in his cast, sitting down. Now that's dedication to superior acoustic powerpop!

See you at a show soon!

Summer 2014 Events

Guys, thanks for all of the love and support through our shows in the winter and early spring of 2014, we've had some great opportunities to play and are just loving where this band has taken us. So much fun to get to play great music with great friends!

Keep posted for some great events in May:

-5/23 Friday night - headlining at the 4th Anniversary Party for the Best Place at the Historic Pabst Brewery, playing along with Anna Ceragioli and The Beguhn-Speck Project

-5/31 Saturday night-  our debut performance at the Fire Pit's Side Bar at the Potawatomi Casino!

 

Also, it's not too soon to start thinking about booking your spot on our 2014 Milwaukee Boat Line Booze Crooze on June 21st! This was one of our best shows EVER, and we had so much fun. The boat ride alone is worth the price of admission, much less the superior acoustic powerpop!

 

Looking forward to a great summer!

April showers bring Bockenplautz flowers?

Ah, spring... the time in a middle aged man's life when his fancies turn to superior acoustic powerpop.

Luckily for you, we've got just the fix!

We've had a busy late-winter with the band with some great shows, and this upcoming gig is the culmination of some hard work and awesome energy from the group. It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock in roll, or so it is said.

This Saturday night- April 12 - we play at our favorite rock club in MKE - Club Garibaldi's - with some really good friends. We've put together an amazing evening of acoustic music from all ends of the spectrum, all for your personal enjoyment. Aren't we so sweet?

8pm-ish - Beguhn-Speck Project. The BSP features Adam Speck, who is an virtuoso acoustic guitarist, and Steve Beguhn, accountant by day and ROCK STAR by night, a Hollywood finalist on American Idol Season 10, and perhaps the finest voice this side of the Kinnickinnic River. Their music features really creative arrangements of modern pop and rock songs, with a side of whimsy.

9:30pm-ish - Bockenplautz. Y'all mind if we dance with your dates?

11pm - Matt "MF" Tyner. Matt is one of the finest roots/blues/country/rock acoustic artists in Milwaukee, and plays regularly as a solo artist or with his band The Carpetbaggers. He's fresh off a two week tour of the Carribbean, so he's nicely tanned, which is a bonus. Also, he just found out he's nominated for a Wisconsin Area Music Industry (WAMI) award for 2014 Male Vocalist of the Year! WOW!

I honestly don't think this show could be any better.

Plus, it's your last chance to get any Superior Acoustic Powerpop until late May!

See you there.

Red & White's Alright

So that was a fun way to spend a Friday night - great crowd at J&B's for the Tosa East Boosters 2014 benefit, had to be way over 200 people through the night. Wonderful to have a real stage to play on too. Glad we could be a part of it!

This Thursday night Jonnie is sitting in with our friend Matt "MF" Tyner as he plays a solo night at Burke's Irish Castle. Playing roughly 10 songs with Matt - doing some of that blues and roots stuff he likes to do, and nobody plays it better than Matt! 8-11pm.

Next big public band show is Saturday March 15th as we return to the depths of Waukesha to once again do a St. Patty's day show at Montecito's Ristorante. Dale the owner demanded we return, and we had to say yes. No cover charge, come on in and party with us. Should be a blast.

And finally, a reminder that we're playing at Burke's Irish Castle on Monday March 31st for Brewers Opening Day! What a cool gig! We'll be starting up as soon as the game finishes, roughly 4:30ish, and playing until about 8pm.

Come out for a show this month!

Red and White Tosa East Boosters Benefit this Friday

Only one show this month for the band in anticipation of things getting a lot busier in the next few months for us. We're excited to be playing again for the Tosa East Red & White Athletics Boosters, this time at J&B's Blue Ribbon Pub at 5230 W. Bluemound, right across from Miller Park. This is the old Long Wongs bar, and they have an awesome back room that will be rocking - including a 2-lane bowling alley!

Admission is $35 at the door, or $25 in advance at the Tosa East Boosters Website. Great raffles, live auctions, free food and beer, and of course Milwaukee's finest acoustic powerpop!

Facebook page for the event is HERE.
