Summerfest 2022 at the Uline Warehouse Stage!

Milwaukee’s Addiction had an awesome time at the Summerfest Uline Warehouse Stage at Summerfest! Even with major acts like Skid Row, Warrant, Lita Ford & Quiet Riot loading in at 6 am, they had they stage running like a well oiled machine! We shuttled to the stage around 10:30 am and we were sound checked by 11:50 with a noon start time, which is when the Summerfest gates opened! The crowd quickly filled in, and we were humbled to see so many of our friends and families that took the day off to rock with us. Special thanks to TEC – The Entertainment Company and Uline stage manager Don Gordon for setting up the gig, Jennifer and Paula for capturing the day’s photos, Woody & Tom – our crazy shuttle drivers, and all of our fans, friends and families that spent the afternoon rockin’ with us!

Addiction rocks the north woods!

Milwaukee’s Addiction would like to thank the kick ass crowd that rocked with us at The Hazelhurst Pub Saturday June 11! With sketchy weather being forecast, our hosts, Bill and Jennifer Markowski had a huge tent erected (heh, love using that word…) to ensure the proper level of partying would follow! As it turned out, the sun broke out of hiding just before we started anyway and the night turned out excellent! Special thanks to Jennifer and Bill, for giving us the opportunity to enjoy the north woods while playing the tunes we all love! Many thanks also to TEC – The Entertainment Company for setting up the date, Craig Vetrone, Zach and V-Tone Audio Productions, for setting up an awesome PA in minimal time and running the sound and lights like total pros! Thanks also to Jay and Bill, for celebrating their birthdays with Addiction! We had an absolute blast playing The Hazelhurst Pub and we’re looking forward to next time!
