New Promo Pics

Hey Head Bangers! Here’s a couple of our new promo shots with different lettering. A big THANK YOU goes out to DonnaB, DaveD and Pete from The Whammy Bar for their help with these!



Addiction, Howie, and The Lucky Rabbit

I’d like to thank everyone that came out to The Lucky Rabbit yesterday to help out Howie and his family!  Milwaukee’s Addiction had a great time rocking the “diverse” crowd! There were kids and grandparents, dancing away to the best 80′s rock that we all know and love!  One of the benefit organizers told me they were super surprised, humbled and grateful for all of the financial support they received.  The band was proud to be a part of the rockin’ afternoon/evening!  The Badgers game and victory kept the place rocking late into the night too!


Addiction! getting ready to Rock The Rabbit!

Next up the Addiction Hair Band Assault Machine descends on The Lucky Rabbit in Waukesha.  It’s an early show from 4-8 pm.  Addiction is proud to be a part of this special benefit show for “Howie’, a young boy fighting cancer that could use our help and prayers.  There will be food and raffles and of course, lots of Metal Mayhem!  The benefit runs from 1-8 pm.  Hope you can join us!



Addiction at The Whammy Bar!

Hey Head Bangers! Thanks to everyone that joined Addiction at The Whammy Bar last night!  We had a hell of a time, and it looked like y’all did too!  Special thanks to Pete and Kelly for all the great changes they’ve made to the stage.  The Whammy Bar supports local music in a BIG WAY!  Thank You!

We’re working on lots of new material right now: Black Sabbath, Def Leppard, Dokken, Megadeth and Scorpions, just to name a few. We’re looking to rock your ass off in 2014 with plenty of new music added to our Hair Band Assault Machine! Muhahhahah!!



Addiction! had a blast at Papa’s!

Big thanks to Matt, Megan and the whole crew at Papa’s for helping us to rock the house! Addiction played a 90 minute set of blistering 80′s rock to a hell of a crowd! Special shout out goes to a great group of friends I first met at work 25+ years ago, who joined us! They’re the hardest partying Walgreens crew (from about 1986) who can still bring it! Woooooohooooooo! Thanks also to Billy Bon Scott and our friend Eddie, for making the whole night happen! Here’s a few pics, I hope to upload more later this week or weekend. Rawk On!  ~A
