ROCK - Classic Rock
Tommie Milwaukee - AKA Tom Milkowski...was one of the founding members of the Booze Brothers Revue in 1980, adding a hard-driving edge to the band on guitar, keyboards, and vocals. In the 70’s, he fronted the popular, high-energy, rock’n’roll show band, the “New Legion Rock Spectacular”. Their recordings are now collector’s items on Ebay, etc. In the late 80’s, he fronted his own band, “Fast Train”, which featured local guitar whiz, Greg Koch.
His new project is a unique “one-man band” solo act. By recording his own backing tracks in his basement studio, playing & singing along live (on guitar or piano or even an occasional Cajun fiddle), and injecting his own high-energy stage presence, vocal ability & musicianship which was the staple of both New Legion Rock and the Booze Brothers Revue, Tom has created the most exciting and best sounding “solo” act around. As this act begins to establish itself, some local guest musicians may also appear on any given night.
Tom’s musical roots are on display here, as he pays tribute to the some of the greatest artists and songwriters in the history of rock’n’roll, country, blues, cajun, rockabilly, folk, & whatever else he may pull out of the hat on a given night … From Jerry Lee to Bruce, to Dylan, to John Hiatt, to Waylon, to Lou Reed, to Richard Thompson, to Link Wray, to Muddy, to the Stones & Beatles, etc. etc. etc. An original tune may also slip in there once in a while.
The tight set lists are structured intelligently, so that music listeners will enjoy just sitting back with a drink & going on a musical ride … and dancers will also be able to get up & have a great time as well. It’s a rock’n’roll show, folks, anything goes!
