Green Bay Packers Playoffs 2010 Milwaukee Package


Did you know that there are two season ticket packages for the Green Bay Packers? One is the "Green Package," and one is the "Gold Package." The Gold package is for Milwaukee season ticket holders. The Green Bay Packers 2010 playoffs are a lock. We don't know who they play just yet.

The Packers make efforts to include the Milwaukee season ticket holders in the Green Bay Packers Playoff run. Not every season ticket holder will buy tickets for home playoff games, because the only way the Packers will play at Lambeau would be if they hosted the NFC championship. For now, we will just hope that our friends to the north win their wild card game.

Milwaukee Bucks Playoff Tickets on my Wish List | Bradley Center map



Dear Santa: For the holiday season, I want Milwaukee Bucks playoff tickets. I know that the Bucks season just started two months ago. I want to know ahead of time that my Bucks will win a playoff spot. Brandon Jennings, Michael Redd, and Andrew Bogut are three strong players that deserve to be in the playoffs.

If I can't have the Bucks tickets, how about I just get a great Bradey Center seat for one of the games. The Bradley Center map is right here santa, so you can see which sections are the best. If you do not have time to actually go to the Bradley center to pick up the tickets, you can have one of your elves order them online. Thanks Santa!

Would Shank Hall be the Venue for Reno Bo's Happenings and Other Things in 2010?



Musically, I’m drawn to where Reno Bo came from. Look no further than Mooney Suzuki to find Reno. Find Albert Hammond Jr. of the Strokes, and you may see Reno powering through the bass lines of Albert’s solo tunes. After years of playing his part, Reno felt it was time to take the wheel.

Reno Bo has more to offer than where he came from, or his musical influences. Happenings And Other Things is far from a tribute disk to styles created long ago. With that being said, I can’t help but agree with what Electric Western Records is saying about this seasoned artist. Reno Bo took some of the better parts of established rock and roll music, added ingredients, time, his own talent, and cooked up something unique enough to call his own.

There’s A Light may start with simplicity, but make no mistake, it’s powerful and bright throughout. I dare anyone to tell me that they don’t have the chorus down pat by the end of the song. It’s a sticky number, and worthy of popping the cork of this album.

Reno makes it clear that the influences on his album include Zeppelin, The Beatles, and Tom Petty. The songs Off Your Back, and Here Right Now capture the spirit of George Harrison, if I may be so bold. Play either song a second time, and you will agree with me to be sure. Reno is his own man musically, and he should see the comparison as a compliment.

Something similar can be said for Sugar Suite Blues. It’s all Reno on top of a beat that Bonham would have been proud to play. One verse into Sugar Suite Blues, and I’m air drumming behind my pretend Ludwig drum kit. Yep, it’s Zep flavored Reno Bo on that track.

Shake Me Up and How Does It Feel are songs that give Reno’s vocal style just enough room to carry the load. How Does It Feel has room for some smoking solo work on guitar and it gets a bit haunting near the end of the track. I had to back that track up and play the solo a few times before moving on.

Reno seems to flirt with sounds that seem to be so much a part of rock and roll history. Yes, I hear Petty, Zeppelin, and the like, but I don’t want to leave anyone with the idea that Reno does not put his own creative juice on this album. Half way through this disk, I’m thinking back to a time when The Stones and The Beatles still wore the stiff suits, but were ready to show the world that they had something more to offer. Happenings And Other Things is the album that a band makes after they lose the suits and play what they feel.

Reno Bo is most likely going to hit the Wisconsin area in 2010. Seeing that we are just weeks away from the new year, I’m going to guess that a Reno Bo show might end up at Shank Hall in Milwaukee. Shank Hall has the right capacity for Reno’s fans. See you in Milwaukee in 2010 Reno.

AC DC New Milwaukee show date at Bradley Center

AC/DC will now play their Bradley Center Milwaukee show on April 15th. Pay your taxes and get you butt down to the Bradley Center. That rescheduled date took a long time to come to the fans. AC/DC Milwaukee Bradley Center tickets are nearly sold out, but you can still get in the venue if you act quickly.

Marquette Basketball Team Takes Second in Old Spice Classic


Marquette started the Old Spice Classic with a big win over Xavier 71-61 in the opening round. Leading Marquette in this game was senior Lazar Hayward who continues to impress scoring 16 points in just the first half. In the semi finals, Marquette went on to beat Michigan winning 79-65. It looked as though the Marquette basketball team was going to finish out with three wins in the series but unfortunately it was only one point that stood between the victory for Marquette on their last game against Florida State losing 57-56. Such a close call for the Badgers in almost dominating this tournament!
