Radio Radio

Rates: contact for rates


Radio Radio was born out of the need for some of Milwaukee's finest on-the-scene musicians to play some of their favorite covers from their years growing up - New Wave and alternative hits from 1977-1984.  Few bands take this true-to-life approach.  A band of top musicians playing songs no other band is covering, and in a way that makes you feel you are seeing and hearing the real thing.  Artists covered range from The Cars, Missing Persons, Duran Duran, Elvis Costello, Psychedelic Furs, INXS, David Bowie, The Fixx, Flock Of Seagulls, and more.  This unique and specific genre draws fans from an amazingly wide range, from twenty-somethings discovering retro to forty-somethings with cassette collections laden with these bands.  Great danceable music with a great rock and roll edge.  That's New Wave, and that's Radio Radio.   A no fuss, all action band that will bring an exciting style of music to life.  Expect a professional attitude, top musicianship and a white hot show.
