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! You all rock!

Addiction at the 1175 Sports Park and Eatery!

Milwaukee’s Addiction would like to thank those that joined us Oct 2nd at 1175! It was our first show there and we had an awesome time! They have a very nice and roomy bar and stage area too, with lots of space for social distancing, if that’s your thing. Congratulations to our founding member Greg and his beautiful wife Kris, who celebrated their 27th anniversary! Our singer Tim‘s son AJ, joined us on stage for a few songs for his 21st birthday and pulled it off like a pro! It was also our last show with our brother and amazing drummer and singer, Wayne. We’re going to miss him and his talents greatly, but we wish him all the best in the next chapter for him and his family! A special Thank You to the management and staff at 1175 Sports Park & Eatery! Their stage, sound & lighting systems and the food were all amazing! Thanks also to Angelo for running the sound board, and to all of our fans, friends and families that came out last night!

The ‘rona virus…

Well, times sure have changed. The COVID19 virus has forced everyone to stop interacting like we all normally would. Not cool. Milwaukee’s Addiction is taking a break until we can all safely get together again. We hope you and your family are staying safe and healthy and helping to slow the spread by staying in and limiting contact as much as possible.
