Saloonfest2 – The Saloon on Calhoun – July 3, 2021

Milwaukee’s Addiction is still recovering following an absolutely incredible 4th of July weekend! Closing out Saloonfest2 was truly an honor! Following local favorites the Metal Men, Train Wreck, Insane Octane, Sliver and others, the crowd was super pumped up and Addiction delivered one of our best shows ever! Now, we can’t go any further without sending a giant THANK YOU to Dave & Jennine for hosting such an amazing 10 day music festival! Tons of local acts, playing different genres on diff days, with an indoor/outdoor party atmosphere! Kind of reminds of what a certain nationally recognized Milwaukee summer festival, used to be like, you know what I mean? 😉 Special thanks also to Dan, Glenn and Steve for running sound and lights for us after 45 other bands and not completely losing their minds! Thanks also to Addiction alumnus Wayne for dropping in all the way from TN and rocking a couple tunes with us! And of course, thank you to all of our amazing fans, friends and families that come out to rock with us and other local bands! We hope you all had an awesome 4th of July!

Rockin’ outdoors at Point Burger Bar – June 23, 2021

A huge Thank You to everyone that came out to Point Burger Bar – New Berlin last night for Milwaukee’s Addiction’s first outdoor summer show of ’21! A few brief showers earlier in the day didn’t seem to dampen anyone’s spirits and even with an epic Bucks game happening, we had a really fun crowd! Master of shenanigans Mitch Paget helped to get the show started and then we took it from there! It was so cool to see so many friends from yesteryear, along with a rafter of my co-workers from Walgreens, where we all worked back in 1986! But the biggest shocker of the night was a surprise visit from a long lost brother I never even met before! Special thanks to Paula Eileen and Scott Biesty for making that happen! It truly is a small, but amazing world! Special thanks also go to Angelo Morgan, Peter Tonn and ALM Fusion Event Services for running sound and lights in a very non-traditional “room”! You guys always make us sound and look like we almost know what we’re doing! And as always, thank you to all of our fans, friends and families that continue to rock with us and support local music! Hope to see everyone next week Friday (7/2) at the Downtown Greendale Days Lions Fest for another outdoor show (4-7 pm) and/or the following day as we close out Saloonfest at the The Saloon on Calhoun on their indoor stage (930 start)!

Next, one of the local music scene’s finest, Rich Hoffman, for jumping up and singing a song with us with absolutely no notice, not that he’d need it!

Kelly’s Bleachers II – March 27, 2021

Milwaukee’s Addiction would like to thank everyone that came out to Kelly’s Bleachers II last night! What an awesome night of classic 80’s rock and metal! New original band Dawn of Day opened up the night with a solid set featuring lots of twin guitar leads. Then Addiction took the wheel and gave the kick ass Kelly’s crowd everything we had! I’m serious, after our 2+ hour set, we were all wiped! Special thanks to KB2 for hosting, Zoy for setting it up, DoD for opening up, birthday girl Michelle, for celebrating with us, our new drummer Chris’ entourage, he’s got his own fan club! And of course, all of our fans, friends and families that continue to support us, other local bands, and all the rockin’ venues for keeping the faith during tough times! You all rock!

Let’s kick off 2021!

What an awesome way for Milwaukee’s Addiction to start 2021! We’re all hoping for better things this year and our first show of the year at The Saloon on Calhoun didn’t disappoint! The huge crowd was just amazing, we saw so many familiar faces, and lots of new ones too! The energy was truly electric! Our new drummer Mykel joined us for a handful of songs in each set and sang lead on a song too and tore it up! Wayne gave us a farewell salvo of his thunderous drumming the rest of the night and was on fire! It’s a blessing to be able to perform with such a talented group of guys! The lovely Cherie joined us for an Ozzy/Lita duet and totally nailed it, like always. Special thanks to Dave for letting us invade his fine establishment once again, Dan and Jeremy for running sound and lights like total pros, all the bar staff for the super tasty food and keeping everyone’s drinks full and of course, all of our fans, friends and families that continue to support us and other local music!
