FRONT PAGE NEWS BAND had over 20 years of an incredible history. What started with Wayne Schroeder as "Red Wing" band in the late '80s eventually became Front Page News - one of Wisconsin's premier classic rock bands playing for Wisconsin's premier events such as an 8 year run at Summerfest (past photos), opening for groups such as the Neville Brothers, Al Green and INXS. They were known in the corporate and upscale wedding market as well, playing events at the Pfister, the Milwaukee Public Museum, (formerly) the Midwest Center, Madison's Overture Center, Chicago's Black Orchid, Lombardi Field Atrium, premier country clubs and restaurants.
Every good thing does come to an end - Front Page News members decided to retire the group in late 2008 - enjoying a final year of playing for the Harley 105th Anniversary gig at the Washington County fairgrounds in late summmer followed by weddings and corporate events in Door County.
Members of Front Page News Band can be seen in a wide array of different groups these days, such as Scotch & Soda Band, Genuine Drive Band, Uptown with Downtown. We have left the site up and active to encourage you to peruse our other venues and thank you for your years of support!
