I just wanted to let you all know that after some productive conversation and much thought, we're announcing that the Broad Street Boogie will begin an indefinite hiatus after our up and coming New Year's Eve Show. It was a tough decision but one that we knew we would face at some point. It's been a blast playing together for the last 6+ years. The time has flown. We'd like to thank every single one of you for supporting us along the way. Kudos to you for thinking live, local, and original. Without fans like yourselves, our local music scene would not be able to sustain an alternative to our current mainstream.
We are looking forward to playing out the remainder of our schedule and hope to see all of your faces out one last time (or two). You will most likely see some of our best performances to date over the next two months. As for the future... some of us have plans, some of us do not, but I guarantee you will continue to see us out and about - instrument in hand. It's in the blood. It doesn't just go away...
Thanks again. Play On!
Another summer gone by. Bummed but excited to get back to some club gigs. We get started this Friday at Parker's Playhouse in Kaukauna. We'll be on stage around 9:30. Check our schedule for more dates.
Thanks to everyone for making it a great summer.

Happy Valentines Day Everyone!
It's been a while since I have been on this page. Enjoying some much needed time off, but itching to get back to playing live. I have somehow managed to stay away from a guitar since New Year's Eve (longest stretch since high school!). Tomorrow, I am taking the Martin(s) up to the northwoods to get re-aquainted. We are back at it as a 6 piece on March 8 in Oshkosh. You can see the rest of our spring schedule by clicking here.
On a Good Day (the latest album) - pretty much available wherever. Show us some love and give it a whirl.

Wow, quite a bit has happened since the last post. We released a new album, On a Good Day (available on Amazon, iTunes), I had my truck and all of my gear stolen (most of the gear has been recovered), and the band's gear took on a huge thunderstorm yesterday (still hoping for the best there). Nevertheless, we push on in the name of rock and roll!!
We're coming in to a busy week. Tomorrow, we'll be playing the Leech in Oshkosh for their area band night (6:30pm). Friday, we'll be under a tent at Brat Days in Sheboygan (4pm). Saturday, we hit up the tiki bar at Elkhart Lake's Victorian Village (cool place). We'll wrap up the mini tour on Sunday out on the floating dock at The Clearwater Harbor in Waupaca (4pm). With a little help from mother nature, we all hope to be bronzed and brown by week's end. All shows are outdoors.
See you around...

Crazy week. Long rehearsals. Long roads. Long weekend. Good to be back home. La Crosse was a blast. Special thanks to Ben and the Bodega. Good times. We also performed at the WAMI award show last night in Appleton. Great experience. It was nice to see a lot of musical compadres. Congrats to all of this year's winners.
Still plugging away on the album. Working in the home studio now. Wave 2 of the studio recording sessions is right around the corner.
Sluggers this Saturday for all you Appletonians. See you there...

The London Souls
Happy Monday! A perfect night for Brandy Old Fashioneds, Ray LaMontagne, and a snow flurry or two. Been doing a lot of writing and rehearsing lately. I am heading into the studio with the BSB in March to start recording the new album. It feels like we have some good stuff happening, but I guess we'll find out...
The Booze Cruise finally settled on a date this year, July 21. We'd love to have a packed boat this time around. Come one, come all. It could be one of our last years. We've hooked up with an incredibale plot of land to camp on for any out-of-towners. Tickets should go on sale sometime next month.
Lastly, I just wanted to thank all of you who continue to come out and support local, original music. I can't tell you all how much it means to me and the band. There are so many musicians around this area that choose to make a living playing someone else's music. I have respect for all of them and also enjoy playing covers, but my heart lies on the other side of the tracks. Music, writing it, and performing it has consumed me in so many ways over the last 20 years. It has cost me jobs, relationships, and money, and yet I can't stop... so again, thanks. It means alot.
Ned Kelly's this Friday for all you Green Bay-ites.

TOMMY 8 : NOVEMBER 20, 2010 : TANNERS : KIMBERLY
The Tommy VIII benefit is in honor of Tommy Steinbruecker who lost his life in a motorcycle accident 8 years ago. Tommy was an exceptionally talented musician and got his start playing live at a very young age. He was the bass player in Green Bay’s own Annex. This benefit helps continue his memory and legacy as one of the area’s brightest stars who's life and talent was taken from us too soon.
All proceeds go towards the ongoing support of our LOCAL young talent by getting musical instruments to kids in the Fox Valley. Come out and support a great cause! The Broad Street Boogie plays from 9-10. This is an all ages event.
