Andy’s 50th Birthday Bash at Mo’s Irish Pub – ‘Tosa!

WOW! Words really cannot describe the amazing outpouring of friendship, love and support I received last Saturday night for my 50th Birthday Bash at Mo’s Irish Pub Wauwatosa! It was literally overwhelming and I truly apologize if I wasn’t able to catch up with each and every one of you personally! A special shout out goes to my family, including several ‘long lost’ relatives that were able to join us for dinner and the show! I must thank my beautiful Paula for everything she did to make the afternoon & evening a success too! The mini cupcakes were a big hit and the masses gobbled them up! Also, my new work buddies at IBM conspired to surprise me. They kept chatter to a minimum at work so I didn’t know what they were planning and then almost my whole team showed up last night! What a cool group! While enjoying dinner with my family, a steady string of friends started popping into Mo’s for dinner plans of their own and all the waves and ‘hello’s were very humbling! Our Milwaukee’s Addiction show was a blast too! We debuted yet a few more new songs, “Foolin” from Def Lep and “When You Close Your Eyes” from Night Ranger and the crowd loved ’em both! We also dusted off a few personal favorites of mine, “This Burning Heart” by Vandenburg and the Gary Moore version of “Shapes of Things”. We love ’em both and we heard ya telling us you do too! A candle laden surprise cherry cheesecake appeared for me during our set break, along with a chorus of Happy Birthday! Thank you Maribeth! Of course, many thanks to Mo’s for hosting, TEC – The Entertainment Company for setting it up, ALM Fusion Event Services and Angelo and Pete for running sound and lights and all of our awesome fans, friends and families that continue to support us and other local bands! You rock!

Another Paulie’s Party in the books!

Milwaukee’s Addiction would like to thank everyone that came out to Paulie’s Pub and Eatery March 10th for another killer night of 80’s Rock, served up with a healthy dose of shenanigans! We also celebrated Greg’s birthday and by all accounts, he doesn’t look a day older than, well, he is! LoL! Seriously though, Greg has been a great band brother and really delivers on stage, every time! With all of the Sports Show traffic at Paulie’s, we also saw many new faces getting nutz! Love to see that! Special thanks to Paul for allowing us to invade his fine establishment yet again, TEC – The Entertainment Company for the booking side, ALM Fusion Event Services for the sound and light show, and all of our fans, friends and families that continue to support us and other local area bands! You All Rock!

Addiction rocks Kelly’s Bleachers Wind Lake!

Milwaukee’s Addiction would like to thank everyone that came out to Kelly’s Bleachers II last night for our double billing with Category X! We pounded through a killer 90 minute set, including another new song we just added. We change up our sets every show and add new stuff all the time! We love to keep you guessing! Our brothers in CategoryX were a pleasure to hang with and put on a smokin’ performance as well. Eddie sang a song with us and Tim sang one with them, great camaraderie all around! And, after ripping through our set, we actually had plenty of time to catch up with all of our amazing fans & friends that made it out there. These double billing shows are pretty damn fun! Special thanks to KB2 for hosting, CatX for making a quick and smooth transition between bands, Joe & Rachel for doing our sound and light show like real pros, and all of our fans, friends and families that continue to support us and other local bands! You guys all rock!

Rockin’ Bub’s Irish Pub during a snowstorm!

Milwaukee’s Addiction would like to thank the great crowd at Bubs Irish Pub Feb 3rd! A little snow didn’t seem to bother them at all, lol. Bub’s was also hosting an 80’s class reunion for James Madison HS and a lot of them totally got into the 80’s Rock that we served up! What great timing! Thanks again to Bub’s, TEC – The Entertainment CompanyThe Cheap Shots and all of our amazing families, friends and fans for making a snow filled night hot inside!

Jamming with Insane Octane at Paulie’s Pub!

Thank You! To Insane-Octane-Rocks and everyone that came out to Paulie’s on Feb 2nd for Jen’s birthday! It’s been great filling in for a couple shows with these guys, and if there were more than 24 hours in a day, I very well could’ve worked with them longer term. But my main band, Milwaukee’s Addiction with a 70+ song catalog is enough to keep this guy busy. I’m very glad I.O. found another guitarist to keep on rocking! I sincerely wish these guys, BrettAndrewTimTom and Bill, all the best! \m/

Jamming with Insane Octane at Rosco’s!

I’d like to thank Insane-Octane-Rocks for the opportunity to jam with them at Rosco’s Jan 13th! With just a few rehearsals under our belt, we put together a pretty killer set of your favorite 80’s and newer rock. These guys have been great friends and are a ton of fun to jam with. As many of you know, I’m filling in for one more show on Friday Feb 2 (at Paulie’s). Hardcase also put on a good opening show, getting the crowd lubed up for our slippery set, lol. Special thanks to my Milwaukee’s Addiction fans and friends for showing up and supporting the show too. As always, it’s humbling to see so much support from the all rockin’ regulars that keep all the local bands in their sights! Rock on, my friends!

Another packed party at Paulie’s!

Milwaukee’s Addiction would like to thank all of our amazing fans, friends and families that came out to Paulie’s Pub and Eatery last night for our first show of 2018! Addiction always has a blast at Paulie’s and last night was no different. Even though some technical gremlins tried to disrupt the show, we pounded through and you guys kept the dance floor shakin’ all night long! We debuted a couple more new songs to your boisterous approval. We really do listen to your song suggestions and it’s good to know we’re pickin’ the right stuff! In a nod to days gone by, we welcomed several fans on stage to dance away during the Lynch Mob fave, ‘Wicked Sensation’. Thank you to all the ladies for behaving on stage too ðŸ˜‰ Our Scorpion’s specialist Cherie also joined us on stage to belt out Rock You Like A Hurricane and Big City Nights, giving Tim a welcome break. For those that didn’t know, 4 of the 5 guys in the band were battling the flu last night and sick or not, it’s always a privilege to play for so many people that really enjoy what we do. Once again, it’s our ever-supportive fans, friends and families that make our shows a hoot! We just make the music for you to party to and you guys always take it to the next level! Rock on!
