Sending out a huge Thank You to everyone that rocked with us at the Charcoal Grill Roadhouse stage Aug 9th! Despite another rainy forecast, we saw TONS of our friends and peers stop in for a few songs, or a couple sets, plus a Giannis sighting, lol. We really appreciate everyone’s support! Special thanks to Matt Campbell and the Charcoal Grill Roadhouse for having us back and running the stage like a well-oiled machine, also a major thank you to whatever company put up the huge Charcoal Grill Roadhouse tent (we played right through a brief afternoon downpour), and of course, all of our fans, friends and families that continue to support us and other local acts!
Milwaukee’s Addiction would like to thank everyone that joined us at State Fair August 7th! It felt great to be back at the Water Street Brewery, State Fair stage for a Saturday night of Metal Mayhem! The rain held off until our last set, and even then, we rocked in the raindrops before they finally shut us down part way into set #3. Special thanks to Zoy & Water Street Brewery for having us once again, Mike for running awesome sound, and all of our wet n wild fans, friends and family that stayed with us despite the weather!
Milwaukee’s Addiction is still recovering following an absolutely incredible 4th of July weekend! Closing out Saloonfest2 was truly an honor! Following local favorites the Metal Men, Train Wreck, Insane Octane, Sliver and others, the crowd was super pumped up and Addiction delivered one of our best shows ever! Now, we can’t go any further without sending a giant THANK YOU to Dave & Jennine for hosting such an amazing 10 day music festival! Tons of local acts, playing different genres on diff days, with an indoor/outdoor party atmosphere! Kind of reminds of what a certain nationally recognized Milwaukee summer festival, used to be like, you know what I mean? 😉 Special thanks also to Dan, Glenn and Steve for running sound and lights for us after 45 other bands and not completely losing their minds! Thanks also to Addiction alumnus Wayne for dropping in all the way from TN and rocking a couple tunes with us! And of course, thank you to all of our amazing fans, friends and families that come out to rock with us and other local bands! We hope you all had an awesome 4th of July!
Milwaukee’s Addiction had a great time at the Greendale Lions 4th Fest! We saw lots of our fans, friends and families rockin’ with us at this awesome event! All your favorite 80’s rock, perfect weather, plenty of tasty food and beverages, AND the Oscar Meyer Wienermobile just off stage right! How could it possibly get better than that, ha! Special thanks go to Mary G and Rich B for making it all come together, we couldn’t have done it without you! Thanks also to Matt and Shane, for running sound and lights, Don of Foreigner 4 Ever for joining us for Def Leppard’s Let It Go, and all of our fans, friends and families that rock with us every time! Happy 4th of July weekend, everyone! Hope to see you tonight at The Saloon on Calhoun where we’re closing out Saloonfest2 at 9:30 pm!
A huge Thank You to everyone that came out to Point Burger Bar – New Berlin last night for Milwaukee’s Addiction’s first outdoor summer show of ’21! A few brief showers earlier in the day didn’t seem to dampen anyone’s spirits and even with an epic Bucks game happening, we had a really fun crowd! Master of shenanigans Mitch Paget helped to get the show started and then we took it from there! It was so cool to see so many friends from yesteryear, along with a rafter of my co-workers from Walgreens, where we all worked back in 1986! But the biggest shocker of the night was a surprise visit from a long lost brother I never even met before! Special thanks to Paula Eileen and Scott Biesty for making that happen! It truly is a small, but amazing world! Special thanks also go to Angelo Morgan, Peter Tonn and ALM Fusion Event Services for running sound and lights in a very non-traditional “room”! You guys always make us sound and look like we almost know what we’re doing! And as always, thank you to all of our fans, friends and families that continue to rock with us and support local music! Hope to see everyone next week Friday (7/2) at the Downtown Greendale Days Lions Fest for another outdoor show (4-7 pm) and/or the following day as we close out Saloonfest at the The Saloon on Calhoun on their indoor stage (930 start)!
Milwaukee’s Addiction would like to thank everyone that came out to Paulie’s Pub and Eatery June 12th! What an awesome night! We saw a ton of new people enjoying the heavier side of Addiction! Milwaukee radio favorite Mitch Paget introduced us to start off the night and it just got crazier from there! We’re so glad to see everyone out and enjoying life again! Special thanks to Paul Budiac for hosting another night of mayhem, John Geiger for running sound & lights and giving us an excellent mix, Eddie Martinez for joining us and belting out Crue favorite, Same ol’ Situation, and all of our fans, friends and families that continue to support local music! Hope to see you at Point Burger Bar – New Berlin for bike night June 23!
