Published Aug. 18, 2015

The combination of bagpipes and didgeridoo is an almost impossibly rare mix - one that belongs almost exclusively to Brother. Unfortunately, the band's upcoming return to River Rhythms on Wednesday night will likely be the final one of its kind, as lead singer Angus Richardson recently announced that he was stepping away from the band. Before his likely final Milwaukee show, we chatted with Richardson and reflect on saying goodbye to Brother.

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

Maddie & Tae looked hot - like not the temperature hot, well, that too. But they looked hot in that ready to play their tails off way. And they did.

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.
