Milwaukee’s Addiction would like to thank everyone that came out for our Summerfest 2018 show on the 4th of July at the Briggs & Stratton Big Backyard stage! It was great to see so many of our fans, friends and families there. We had an amazing day and it sure looked like the crowd did too! The rain stayed away for our show, but I feel bad for the acts that played later, when the downpours started. Wow! That was some crazy heavy rain! Special thanks go to TEC – The Entertainment Company and Rick Erickson, for setting this all up. The Briggs stage runs like well oiled machine and it was our pleasure to rock the 4th with them!
Wow! what a great night! Milwaukee’s Addiction would like to thank everyone that came out to Lucky Chance on June 2nd to rock out and celebrate a couple birthdays with us! What an amazing crowd! Great to see so many of our friends and new faces too! We’ve been adding a lot of new material lately, songs like ‘Screaming in the night’ from Krokus and ‘When you close your eyes’ from Night Ranger and many more. Based on your response to these, and others, it would seem we’re picking songs that hit the nail on the head! I have to share how humbling it is to open a song like ‘Screaming’ and have the crowd react like it did. It literally gave me goosebumps as I played through the slow, reverb laden intro and then seeing everybody there sing along to the chorus too! Wow, just incredible! Special thanks to Lucky Chance and Kelly for hosting, Lynnfor all of her efforts to make this happen, Scotti& Billfor rocking their birthdays with us, Angelo and ALM Fusion Event Services for running sound like a total pro, Cherie for singing ‘Rock you like a hurricane’ and all of our fans, friends and families that continue to support us and other local bands! Y’all rock!
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 Paulafor 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 Angeloand 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!
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 Paulfor 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!
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!
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 Company, The Cheap Shots and all of our amazing families, friends and fans for making a snow filled night hot inside!
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, Brett, Andrew, Tim, Tom and Bill, all the best! \m/
