Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

The Bodeans

When: Wed., April 29, 8 p.m. 2015

The Milwaukee-bred band BoDeans have been making music for over 30 years now and with American Made, the most recent album that was released in 2012, singer/songwriter/guitarist Kurt Neumann, the founder and frontman of the group, has said the group finally realized it is "a truly American band.” It’s a band, which he has said was initially comprised of “blue-collar kids straight out of the heartland.” Initially, a number of singles would garner rock radio airplay for the group over the years, but it was “Closer To Free,” first released in 1993 on the band’s Go Slow Down album, which would bring their music to a wider audience when it was later adopted as the theme song for the television show Party of Five. There’s a laid-back easygoing feel that threads through the group’s catalog, but as the title of their recent live album Amped Across America suggests, they’re definitely a rock ’n’ roll band.
