The finger

Well, our new singer Mark has been making great progress with all of our material and brings a great attitude and work ethic to boot! So glad to have him aboard!

However, things have slowed just a bit due to a small injury to my left index finger:

It’s not as bad as it looks, but it’s hard to play guitar 100% until it grows back.

In the mean time, we’ve been picking some new material to keep things fresh. Judas Priest, Vandenberg, Queensryche & Sammy Hagar are just some of the best 1980′s bands we’re adding to our sets!

Stay tuned and we’ll see you soon!

New singer added!

First off, we’d like to sincerely thank all the talented guys & gals that came down for auditions. Singers can be a tough spot to fill, and we’re all very humbled to have had several very talented vocalists contact us.

With that said, let us introduce our new singer MARK !

Mark’s been a veteran of Wisconsin music for years, playing with The Rockerfellers, Fat Sandwich and other local acts. He’s also performed in Nashville and overseas, and even opened for Jimi Hendrix once. Well, okay the Jimi thing might be unconfirmed… Anyway, Mark’s been a pleasure to jam with so far and we’re working hard with him and will be back to rock your @ss off soon!

Besides singing, apparently Mark is also an amateur astronaut and surfer! Can’t be much left on his bucket list, lmao!  A~

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!
