Addiction rocks Mo’s ‘Tosa! 8/20/16

Hey friends, Milwaukee’s Addiction would like to thank everyone that came out to Mo’s Irish Pub Wauwatosa last night. We had a really fun crowd that just OWNED the dance floor! Special thanks go to our friend and local musician extraordinaire, Eddie from CategoryX and Motley Brue, and also Milwaukee’s own Nikki Sixx, Taylor for singing a few songs with us and just nailing it! Then there was the boisterous bunch of beauties from Kansas City that helped our usual crew of lovely ladies sing the backups on “Girls, Girls, Girls”! I’m sure Vince, Nikki and co. would be proud. 🙂 The Trunk of Junk returned and we got a few right and we got stumped too. You guys ask some weird shit, heh. You know though, our fans, and our friends and crowds like last night really take it to the next level. It looked to me like everyone there was havin’ a pretty damn good time, including the band of course! 🙂

Addiction rocks Wisconsin State Fair!

Milwaukee’s Addiction would like to thank all of our great fans, friends and families that came out to State Fair last night for our 80’s Rock assault party at The Charcoal Grill stage! The band had a blast and the weather finally cooperated for an outdoor show! I’d like to personally thank my parents, aunt, uncle and cousins for joining us too. Cousin Dave gets the long haul award, all the way from West Hollywood, CA. Great to see some other friends too that I’ve not seen in a long time.. Tracy, Kim, Jim, Ron 🙂 All in all, what a kick ass night!

Here’s a few pics from our amazing fans. A full gallery is coming soon, shot by our friend Jennifer!

Addiction sizzles at Wisconsin Harley Davidson!

Literally! It was almost 100 degrees out there! Whoa! Despite the heat, Milwaukee’s Addiction had a great time at Wisconsin Harley-Davidson! The heat was just crazy, but those that came out enjoyed a ton o’ fun! In addition to everyone’s favorite 80’s Rock, FLUX emceed and kept the pace moving, and 4 GB Packer players did a Q & A between sets followed by an autograph and photo session. There was also great food and drinks, a pool, a sprinkler, and of course, lots of killer Harleys! We’d like to thank TEC – The Entertainment Company and FLUX for setting up the show, WHD for hosting the event, Joe, Borna & Mitch from 102.9 The Hog, and everyone that braved the heat!

Rained out at Quaker Steak n Lube!

Even though a good crowd showed up including a few dozen bikers, the weather just wouldn’t let up and Addiction was forced to cancel our outdoor show on June 22nd. We’d like to thank Dane and the Quaker Steak staff for trying their best to make it work. With the show cancelled and a great group of friends & fans already there, we ended up having a really fun dinner party instead! You know what they say: “When life gives you lemons, drink beer” or something like that. 🙂 Thanks again to everyone that came out, despite the weather!

Quaker Steak n Lube – Rain or Shine, but we’ll take shine!

Hey everyone. We want to give a little heads up about our show tomorrow night at Quaker Steak and Lube. If you have been following the weather at all, you have noticed that tomorrow afternoon/evening is pretty questionable. If the storms stay away (everyone please cross your fingers on it) we will be good to go and will be rocking two sets out in the parking lot. If things look ugly, we will be moved inside to play in the bar in a (one could say “Stripped” down version) of addiction. Either way, we will be playing and we will be finding out after 2 pm tomorrow. We will let you know what the plan is as soon as we know. Thank you, Greg, Kip, Mark, Andy and Tim…..and Wayne is in here somewhere too. I think he is buried under Star War’s figures…

Addiction rocks at The Metal Grill & Mo’s Tosa!

Milwaukee’s Addiction had a great weekend! Friday night at The Metal Grill to help support local firefighter Rudy Betancourt and Saturday night we returned to Mo’s Irish Pub Wauwatosa to administer a full dose of 80’s Rock! The turnout and support for Rudy was truly awe inspiring! Rudy’s wonderful mom Tina personally told me how incredibly thankful they were for the strong showing of support from everyone that made it as well as all the generous donors that made the numerous raffles a big success! A big Thank You also goes to Neil and Theresa for hosting such a meaningful event. We love what they’re doing at The Metal Grill and they deserve all the support we can show them!

Saturday night at Mo’s Irish Pub Wauwatosa we had all kinds of new faces on stage and our “Stump the band” trivia and prizes were fun too! Our drummer Mark is taking a little medical time off and our good friend Wayne graciously agreed to step in on short notice. Like a week. And he nailed it! We didn’t even have time to practice together with him. Ken and I used to jam with Wayne though, so we knew he’d be up for it. And since our singer Tim is still getting over bronchitis, our friend Don stepped in and sang several songs too. Don also used to jam with Ken and I in Tracer Bullet, and Don also fronts the great new Foreigner tribute band Headknocker. It’s always a good time sharing the stage with old friends! Of course several ladies also joined us on stage for Girls, Girls, Girls and made the place shake! It’s always a blast at Mo’s Irish Pub Wauwatosa!

The rest of the weekend pics are here!

Addiction at Paulie’s Pub 5/14

Milwaukee’s Addiction at Paulie’s Pub and Eatery. Another great night at one of our favorite places! We know there were lots of great choices around town for our friends and fans last Saturday night, so we want to say THANKS to the excellent crowd at Paulie’s for hanging with us all night long! We’d also like to thank TEC – The Entertainment Company for setting up the evening and Matthew for providing a killer sound and light show. We had a few guests join us on stage, Aaron for Rock You Like a Hurricane and our beautiful regulars for Girls, Girls, Girls. We even had a surprise (to us) guest singer join us for Enter Sandman. We’re very lucky to have such enthusiastic fans! The dance floor stayed busy almost constantly, including a few ladies dancing in ways that might be illegal in few states. But not in West Allis! Ha! It was great to see so many of our regular fans, along with some new faces too, and a surprise friend from way back! We’re off for a few weeks, but we’ll see you at The Metal Grill on Friday June 10 for a special benefit show! \m/
