Bio

Bockenplautz have quickly become one of Milwaukee's best and most interesting cover bands in their short 3 year history. The band played 20 shows last year all over Wisconsin including a tour of Door County, and shows at the Best Place at the Historic Pabst Brewery, Down and Over, Club Garibaldi, BBC's Upper Level, and as a featured performer for the Milwaukee Boat Line Summer Concert Series. They finalized their first CD in 2013, recorded live at Club Garibaldi and mixed by Jeff Hamilton at Nutone Studios in downtown MKE. Every venue we've ever played has asked us back. 

The name Bockenplautz is a combination of Christopher and Jonnie's last names (Bock and Plautz), inspired by the Lowenbrau beer label. Remember Lowenbrau? We sure do. It also ties into our love of the Germanic beer brewing tradition here in Milwaukee, so that's cool. When asked, we usually describe our sound as somewhere between Guster, Tenacious D, Avett Brothers, and Matthew Sweet. Tight harmonies, acoustic instruments, energetic performances of melodic rock songs from every genre, and GUSTO are the key ingredients of every Bockenplautz show.
