Bad Boy has created legends in the Midwestern rock scene for more than two decades. United Artists signed
the band to a two album deal in 1977. Both albums, "The Band That Milwaukee Made Famous" and "Back To
Back" reached the top 100 nationwide.
In 2002 with its current lineup of Steve Grimm, Xeno, Craig Evans and Scott Berendt in place, Bad Boy released
"We Should've Been Dead By Now" containing all new material. One of the tracks on the release, "What are
You Crazy?" reached #11 on the popular Garageband web site.
Bad Boy's glory years of the early 80's have been resurrected by constant new material and an amazing live
Bad Boy has played with acts such as Cheap Trick, Survivor, 38 Special, Ted Nugent, Night Ranger, Kansas,
Angel, and Paul Rodgers at festivals, fairs and clubs throughout the Midwest.
Bad Boy has been inducted into the Wisconsin Area Music Industry (WAMI) Hall of Fame, and performs for sellout
crowds on a continuing basis.
Unlike your typical garage strata of musician, Chaser is different. They show care in their work, and it pays off.
Call it what you like ‐ presence, aura or just potential ‐ they’re like Lays potato chips; you can’t just see them
once. The press has compared these guys to a lot of big bands like Aerosmith, Cheap Trick and Zeppelin; even
dubbed them as "the baby Queen”.
On the white Ludwigs sits drummer Tony Cerniglia, on bass guitar is Mr. Steve Johnson, who makes a hermit of
himself in the North country on the odd day the band isn’t out touring. Garnering the Gibson’s that give you
the buzz in your ears as you’re trying to crash out later on is Michael Ripp, and then there exists Mike Massey.
Rumored to be of Swiss ancestry, Massey is competitive with the best of the rock world’s leading front‐men.
His actions and gestures are spontaneous and immediate, much like the little kid next door who would steal
your toys right out from under your face if you didn’t keep an eye on him every second.
The O'Bros have been delivering their own brand of 70's influenced original music for over 30 years now. With
over 100 original songs in their book, the band's shows are always fresh.
In 1986 the band recorded its first single "Stand Back" and "Real Thing". As they couldn't decide which song
was the "A side" they named one side "side A" and the other side "side 1" The band began working on a full
length record. In 1989 the first full length CD "It's About Time" was released to critical acclaim. The CD was
produced by The O'Bros together with production genius Butch Vig (Nirvana, Greenday, Smashing Pumpkins,
Throughout the 90's The O'Bros enjoyed widespread popularity, radio airplay and large concert crowds. They
served as an opening act for Michael McDonald, Don McClain and Etta James to name just a few. Sadly, the
band disbanded in the mid 90’s. However, in 2008 the band got back together and something magical
happened. Like recognizing just how good something was by virtue of being away from it for a while, everyone
in the band couldn't stop smiling.
So the band is back ‐ dedicated to doing live shows and finishing their second CD as well as recording even
more new material.
Interface was formed in the summer of 1985 by Craig Radi (bass, vocals) and Mark Schultz (drums, vocals).
Craig and Mark quickly joined forces with Rich Farris (keys) and Scott Miller (guitar, vocals) and started
performing live in September 1985. Dave King (lead vocals) joined the group in 1986 to round out what would
quickly become one of the hottest, spandex‐wearing rock bands to ever hail from southern Wisconsin. During
the group’s 3‐1/2 year existence, Interface covered some the greatest tunes from the heaviest‐hitting 80’s
bands. They also wrote and recorded several original songs, one of which (Long Lonely Nights) topped the local
Z104 “Weekly Top 5 at 10” charts for 8 weeks in a row, peaking once at number 1 during that stint. Interface
quickly gained recognition and popularity locally and started gaining additional regional recognition as their
touring efforts branched out to the Twin Cities and beyond shortly before the group dissolved in April 1989.
Since Interface officially disbanded, the group has played several reunion shows and its members continue to
keep in touch, remaining great friends and musical brothers through the many years and miles between them.
