1721 Canal Street

We are thrilled to announce that we will be playing for the first time ever at the Potawatomi Bingo Casino Fire Pit's Side Bar. Finally, Milwaukee's hardest working superior acoustic powerpop outfit joined together with the high-roller atmosphere of the Casino to really get your motor humming! Perfection!

Remember, you can't win if you don't play, and we can't melt your face if you don't stop playing for a minute and stop by the Fire Pit's Side Bar!

Bring a friend, tell a neighbor - it's the loosest slots in downtown MKE combined with the finest acoustic powerpop onslaught you'll ever hear.

This is one of the premiere locations to play in Milwaukee, and we are honored to get a chance to show the nice folks of the Potowatomi nation what we can do!
