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! You rock!

Another wild night at Paulie’s! Milwaukee’s Addiction would like to thank everyone that came out to Paulie’s Pub and Eatery last night! What an awesome crowd! Special thanks to Chris Cauwels for stepping in for our ailing drummer, Wayne. Chris had minimal time to prepare (about 1 day!) and pulled it off like a total pro!

Special thanks also to Paul Budiac for once again hosting our carnival of 80’s mayhem, Angelo MorganPeter Tonn and ALM Fusion Event Services for running the sound and lights, and all of our fans, friends and families that support Addiction and other local music!

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.

An update…

Some very good news to share with everyone. Ken is doing much better and his hand is out of a cast. For those of you who do not know, he injured his right hand a couple of weeks ago which is kind of a bad thing for a bass player. We feel horrible for having to cancel a few shows in January and February but we are hoping he is ready to get back to practice by March and we will be back out on the road in April. I will be adding a couple of shows as soon as they are confirmed. Thanks everyone for the support shown for Ken!

New Year’s Eve 2019!

Happy New Year from Milwaukee’s Addiction! We’d like to thank everyone that brought in the new year with us at the 5 Corners Roadhouse! We had an awesome time! Thanks to all of our friends and fans that made the short drive to Cedarburg! Between our fans and the local crowd, the place was packed! Thanks to all the ladies that kept the dance floor boppin’, and also the dudes that were headbangin’ all night to the heavy stuff! You all rock! Special thanks to the 5 Corners Roadhouse and Don for setting up the show, AngeloBrian and ALM Fusion Event Services for providing a kick ass sound and light show, and all of our fans, friends and families that continue to rock with us! Hope you all have a great 2020!

Slay Bells ring! Are you listening?

Thanks to everyone that came out to Rock Country MKE Saturday Dec 14th for our 2nd annual Slay Bells holiday metal fest with Milwaukee’s Addiction and our Thrasher buds! Once again, we brought out our heavy stuff to start the night and then Thrasher cranked up the metal mayhem from there! Earlier this year, I asked my bros in Addiction what they thought about adding Dream Theater’s signature song ‘Pull Me Under’. The looks I got were priceless! Everyone knew that learning and performing that tune faithfully would be a real ball buster, but that hasn’t ever stopped us before! (See Angel Eyes, 2 Minutes to Midnight, Take Hold, etc.) Anyway, everyone worked it out and we debuted it last night and have to say it went over really well! A big thank you to my brothers in the band! It’s a real privilege to jam with you guys! Special thanks also to Zoy for setting it up, the awesome guys in Thrasher, Matthew for providing a killer sound and light show that makes all the difference, and all of our fans, friends and families that continue to support us, and other local music! You guys all rock! Hope to see you New Year’s Eve at 5 Corners Roadhouse 1880!
