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/
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!
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 😉 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!
Hey rockers! We’ve got a great new video to share with you, enjoy!
Milwaukee’s Addiction would like to thank everyone that came out for one, or both, of our shows last night. We started the evening at Club Garibaldi’s kicking off the Toys for Tots show. With 3 much heavier bands following our set, our crowd looked like they were ready for a Slayer tribute, not an 80’s rock band, lol. But they got into our set and we made several new friends and fans. They have a great stage there and the talent to run a kick ass sound mix too. Special thanks to Randy for including Addiction in this very worthwhile cause! The next leg of our evening took us to Kelly’s Bleachers Big Bend – KBBB for a full night of 80’s rock n metal. Plenty of music and dancing, and man, their burgers are excellent too! We played some of our newer material and saw some ‘interesting’ responses in the crowd. We love to see your reactions, good, bad or otherwise (Kevin)! At least you know you’ll never see the same show twice! Our good friend Eddie also joined us for Motley Crue’s SOS and owned it, that’s just how he rolls. Special thanks to Tina & Larry for following us from Bay View to Big Bend and catching both shows! You guys rock! And also thank you to Kelly’s Bleachers 3 for hosting and TEC – The Entertainment Company for setting it up. We’re taking off the whole month of December so we can jet around the world for the Holidays (yea, right) but we’ll be back on Saturday Jan 6th at Paulie’s Pub and Eatery for our first show of 2018! Rock on, my friends!
Milwaukee’s Addiction would like to thank everyone that rocked with us at Knucklehead Pub last night! First of all though, we have to apologize for the painfully long sound check and continuous feedback issues throughout the evening. Our usual sound & light crew had a family emergency and the last minute replacement crew that arrived in their place was, well, not ready for prime time, to say the least. By the second set, one of our friends in the crowd ended up taking control of the mixing console and managed to set up a decent mix, on the fly. Special thanks to him and the great local crowd that stuck with us and also those that made the trip to Eagle to see us, we really appreciate your support! We promise our next show won’t be plagued with the nonsense that detracted last night. Sometimes rock n roll goes a little off the road, ya know! Hope to see ya at one of our 2 shows next Sat Nov 25. First, we’re kicking off the Toys for Tots show at 5 pm at Club Garibaldi’s and then we’re off to Kelly’s Bleachers Big Bend – KBBB for a full Saturday night of 80’s rock and metal mayhem! \m/
Milwaukee’s Addiction would like to thank everyone that came out to Paulie’s Pub and Eatery last night for our multiple birthday bonanza! No less than 4 of our rockin’ friends celebrated their b-days and whoa, there was some good times flowing, if you know what I mean! Birthday girls Maribeth, Kelly & Paula danced their tails off all night long and birthday boy Steven joined us on stage to sing one of his faves, ‘Let if Go’ from Def Leppard, and he rocked it! Eddie of Motley Brue also joined us to belt out our Motley Crue favorite, SOS and nailed it, as usual! We saw many familiar faces and also new ones too, some all the way from Green Bay! Special thanks go out to all of our fans, friends and families that come out and support us, and other local music too! We’d also like to thank Paul for allowing us to once again, invade his fine establishment and kind of blow the doors off. We appreciate the hospitality. 😉 Also, thanks to Angelo and Jon and ALM Fusion for doing sound & lights like only they can. That was one hell of night! Hope you can join us this Sat. (11/18) at Knucklehead Pub or next Sat. (11/25) at Kelly’s Bleachers Big Bend – KBBB.
Happy Birthday to our friends: Steven, Maribeth, Paula & Kelly!
