About
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.

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

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!

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!

We were 100% satisfied with Front Page News! Our guests commented that it was one of the best weddings that they had ever been to and credited it mostly to the GREAT band that we had. We had a wide array of ages in attendance and this comment came from both young and old alike. They were playing music that appealed to everyone. They're full of energy and it was quite contagious! Also, they were very easy to work with. Everyone knows planning a wedding is stressful. Bette was very accommodating as far as responding to all of my emails and even taking the initiative to contact the person in charge at our reception site about electrical requirements, which saved me some time. We were very impressed with Front Page News and would highly recommend them.

Front Page News did an awesome job at our wedding! I have never seen so many people dancing at a wedding before and everyone stayed until the very end because it was such a great time! Bette was a pleasure to work with and she was very accomodating to every request. The band did an excellent job reading the crowd and playing the music that got everyone out on the dance floor. We had such a great time and we hope that we will end up at another wedding where they are playing because it is sure to be a blast!!! THANK YOU!

Wow!! I have NEVER seen EVERYONE dancing at a wedding--except mine!! Front Page News, you guys were the most versatile, fun-loving, energetic group I have ever seen get such a diverse group of people bumpin' and movin' at the same time. We recommend you to anyone we can. You had our guests at the mic singing, you played an incredible variety of awesome music, and were so easy and fun to work with throughout the whole wedding planning process. You were the best! Thank you so much!
