About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Meet Front Page News - from Milwaukee, Wisconsin - a classic rock band that making headlines all over Southeast Wisconsin and Northern Illinois with their top-notch musicianship and showmanship for over 20 years! They are, indeed, right for any party, because they do enough variety of material for almost any conceivable situation, but don't think that they're just a bunch of stiffs. Deep down, they're partying, boogying, jamming, rocking souls just like the rest of us. Once the dinner hour is over, their (shall we say) 'wilder' side comes out. And yes, they can kick the proverbial butt! They fit the bill for all kinds of events, festivals, clubs, weddings, corporate parties... whatever! The fact is they mix it up with everything from jazz & light pop for the dinner hour to rockin hits sometimes with a bite of blues! Patrons/partygoers have been known to hoot, holler, stomp, clap, cheer, raise a ruckus, dance, sing, shout out requests (which they handle quite deftly), and in general, lose themselves in the revelry of the moment. After all, what's life without a little revelry? A hit at Milwaukee's premiere festival, Summerfest annually since 1997 openers for Al Green, INXS, and The Neville Brothers, they are a constant top draw at festivals, private parties, and clubs throughout Milwaukee, Madison, Chicago, and surrounding areas. Front Page News adds high energy entertainment to any venue, giving a special touch to make your festival, wedding, or corporate event one to remember. This fun, dynamic 6/7-piece band offers an excellent variety of tunes, ranging from today's hits to yesterday's favorites. In keeping with the highest standards in the entertainment industry, the group's repertoire includes soul, top 40, rock, funk and oldies. Instrumentation: guitar, bass, keyboards, drums, sax, male and female vocals.

CelebrationReviewed on July 26, 2008From Lake Mills, WI

We loved them! They fit right in at our home--talented! Laurie's voice was beautiful and powerfull. They can play anything! Jammin' Jimmy was an excellent guitar player--they were so well prepared. We'd hire them again in a heartbeat! Mary Hughes

WeddingReviewed on July 12, 2008From Elkhart Lake, WI

The band was fantastic! We had so many compliments the entire night about the great music. Everyone had such a fun time - no one wanted to leave the dance floor at the end of the night. At one point, my husband and I were at the back of the room and we commented on how we have never been to a wedding where so many people danced! The dance floor was packed all night long. We had such a great night and Front Page News is to thank!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on November 11, 2006From Elkhart Lake, WI

The entire band was extremely personable and easy to work with. Bette was very professional and contacted me several times prior to the event to confirm details and make sure we were on the same page. Since it is the band that either makes or breaks a party, our party was a huge success thanks to them. By the end of the party, all of our guests were commenting on what an awesome band we had and 3 guests wanted to hire the band for their own upcoming events. I am SO glad that our original band cancelled because i am positive that they would not have done half as good of a job as Front Page News. It is very clear that all of the band members truly enjoy what they do and have fun in addition to being great musicians. Thank you Front Page News!
