Run-D.M.C. visits the MKE

Published Aug. 22, 2015

The fact that a Shorewood resident named Eric "Shake" James and Darryl McDaniels from the legendary hip hip group Run-DMC opened a shoe boutique called Clicks, 1916 E. Capitol Dr., is a compelling story. The fact that McDaniels was at Clicks today, casually meeting fans, signing autographs and telling stories, is even more unbelievable.

Published July 27, 2015

Episode three of Milwaukee Soundbites sends us over to City Hall to chat with Alderman and Common Council President Michael Murphy. But, we're talking music, not politics, as Ald.

Bryan left it all on the Country Thunder stage

Published July 27, 2015

I know. I like country music. I am a fan of country music. Heck, I'm a huge fan of Luke Bryan's. So it might not seem to carry a lot of weight when I say Luke Bryan killed it. But man, he just totally did.

Shelton shows off his star power at Country Thunder

Published July 26, 2015

Blake Shelton's Saturday night headliner set at Country Thunder was one of those shows that you hope you catch at some point in your life. It was big. It was high. It was hilarious. It was fun. It still felt intimate even though there were 30,000 people there. In short, it was kinda epic.

Published July 25, 2015

When I think about Dierks Bentley, what comes to mind is dedicated, thoughtful, emotional, energetic and loyal. His music is honest, real, sometimes painful, sometimes fun and always country. He delivered all that and more on Friday night at Country Thunder.

R5's Ellington Ratliff readies for Riverside show and Wisconsin return

Published July 24, 2015

At first glance, Ellington Ratliff may seem like the odd man in the pop rock band R5. He's the only one who's not a member of the Lynch family. He's the only one with a first name that doesn't begin with R (Riker, Rocky, Ross and Rydel make up the rest), and he's the only bandmate not born and raised in Colorado. Instead, Ratliff was born out in Los Angeles and split time in Wisconsin, making the band's Riverside gig Friday night a return of sorts.

The forecast for Country Thunder? It's raining men

Published July 21, 2015

It was a struggle writing this Country Thunder preview without talking about the giant white elephant in the room: #SaladGate. So. We're gonna talk about the white elephant - the issue? Female country artists get very little airplay on country radio - and then talk about what you can expect, see and do at Country Thunder.
